An Excellent Review of Graphical UI Toolkits for C/C++ by Philippe Groarke.

Recently I've been looking for a C++ graphical toolkit that programs in modern C++ and eliminates all the 1990s bad influences of the Microsoft Foundation Classes.

Re: Fixing the LS_COLORS problem and improving terminal colors

I've updated the code yet again, as well as the installation instructions. For anyone who tried to get this to work previously, I apologize for wasting your time. I have tested the new instructions on MX19 and MX21 linux distros. Everything seems to work fine with the current instructions. I realize...

Showme - The command line option for displaying files

The showme command takes a list of files and opens them with the preferred application. In the showme --ask mode, it will ask the user the preferred application for each type of file.

DOCC++ : A new acronym for C++

Data Oriented, C-Style C++ programming = DOCC++ Just thought of it. It's really the style I enjoy. The DOCC normally points to de part ment of coun ty corr ections, so I had to add the ++ at the end to make this term discoverable with a search engine. I don't really enjoy raw C nearly as much as C++...

Find out about the Unix family history at Ancestry.com

That's right, Ancestry.com has all the details on Unix , including what the family was doing in the 1800s. Surprisingly, they didn't come from New Jersey. Apparently, they're from Wisconsin.

The Cult of Matlab

I'm dismayed when I see how popular R, Python, and Matlab have become. They're all a bunch of bolt-on centric scripting languages, about as bad as anything during the 70s through the 90s.
