Re: Feb's Programming competition ?

i had an idea i was working on. reimplementing pacman as a bash script. and maybe write a little sqlite app to handle the backend. anyone interested? could be next month's challenge.

Re: Feb's Programming competition ?

Wow, and what a challenge !! However, i am sorry i cannot participate.

1) I dont know enough bash.
2) I have not read pacman source code, so i would have no idea what porting it to bash would mean smile

Anyway, just so that others know, can we use "tar zxvf" in the bash-man ? Or we have to directly use the tar libs like the real pacman ?

Re: Feb's Programming competition ?

Re: Feb's Programming competition ?

another idea i had was making something like subethedit, which is an os x program that allows multiple people to work on the same text file at the same time. This done through the internet. so why not something like this for the command line?

It seems that gobby does the same thing, and you could just use libgobby to implement something of the sourt.
Now, having a Pacman-in-diffrent-languages contest would be nice...

Re: Feb's Programming competition ?

Really, really sorry about the February programming competition - the day before I was supposed to be putting it up (it's my turn to post one) my mobo fried, and I was without a computer for a week; since then I've been putting it off again and again, lol, because I'm in the middle of many many deadlines for work, and am overloaded atm. sad

I'm just too busy at the moment to sort out the next competiton - if someone wishes to post, they're more than welcome to do so (please adhere to the posting guidelines - read the 'Guidelines & Rules' post for the competition), because I won't be able to for another 2-3 weeks.  :?
