pico server 3.0 released

I develop a small footprint, portable webserver. I was able to get it run on almost every unix I could get the hands on that has decent socket support and std libraries. Release 3.0 is out after a long long number of betas and alphas and it features two new ports! Irix 6.5 works smoothly, but now it...

I can confirm the Y2K bug. A real pity :-) Here the date too has the wrong name of the day of the week.
As for the uptime I can't say, i shut it down at night :)

But I have a question, what timezone string did you set to get CET/CEST? I tried but it seems to work wrongly.

FORMS is the toolkit with which Jot, showcase and other programs are written? I like its menus (in the 6.5 version at least, the 4.0 they are a bit crude) and the design of the widgets. But SGI itself touts it as "obsolete toolkit". I never programmed it. Also I don't think it is cross-platform. The...

Sure creating a front-end for an application that already has a good splitting is better and easier. But I didn't even specificed which applications!! I just suggested the idea and looked for helpers to join in the project and the discussion got in the detail already. So these are my suggestions -Br...

Personally, I think Motif and GTK are ugly (code-wise) and I don't like C++, so I stick with Xlib. Now, an Ada95 framework for X11 that was similar to Java Swing, that would be great! Well, Motif is C only (and afaik, gtk is C too) and you see most of the Xt underpinning motif and you use Xlib stuf...

Mach5 cpu's

In order to use Mach5 cpu's in a powermac you need a "late" 9600/8600 (the cpu modules are the same). That is a kansas board, not a tsunami. The board lacks L2 cache (it is backside on the cpu module for Mac5 cpu) and also has some tweaks in the processor bus (I don't know at what level) that is if ...

I know it is not an easy task, but it is an interesting now. And yes, I coded some Motif, though never something really big. GTK is crap, I don't care for 'eye candy" like antialiased fonts. Often I find them even disturbing. GTK looks ugly too. Also while GTK 1.2 was reasonable, gtk 2.4 is totally ...

porting apps to Motif (help seeked)

Hello, first a short line of presentation: some people may know me under this nickname from the IRC channel. My idea is to port some selected applications that have "alien" toolkits to Motif. Mainly I think from the "evil" gtk, especially gtk2. I find this idea interesting because 1. motif is fast a...
