Blister

Got a little more done on Blister. Nothing much, just some string-handling and the unit tests for it. I still need to work out a proper unit-testing framework, but I might just settle for a function or three to print out test summaries or just use good old diff(1).

Code

Is there a naming convention for C functions in the open source world for destructive functions (that modify their argument(s))? I've been using the n-prefix (as per Common Lisp) and there's nothing wrong with that, but I'm trying to make the code as readable for others as it is for me.

Server-less CGI

One person e-mailed me regarding my claim that lynx (the text-mode browser) supports CGI without a webserver present. Just in case there are more people wondering what kind of drugs I'm on, grep the lynx_help directory in the distribution for lynxcgi, and that should answer the basic questions.

I still can't remember the name of the Mozilla-derived browser that does CGI on its own, though.

Spam

Am I the only one that got the spam for Hong Kong fax lines? They claimed they "found out about my company on Advogato.org". Admittedly, it's my own fault for posting my e-mail address here, but if they found my e-mail address, they should figured out that spamming the denizens of Advogato might not be such a hot idea.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
