GNU Smalltalk

Got a mail from brondsem announcing success in building 2.0k on Solaris/SPARC, so it's not a generic big-endian issue. I'll look into this more when I have time -- right now I'm rushing through some housework in the hopes of getting more of the grass cut before it starts to rain.

X serving

Got remote X connections up and working within a matter of minutes. Encrypted, even. Not to shabby -- thanks to the OpenSSH team for not making it a pain in the butt!


Playing with the regular expression library in O'Caml. It is fun and entertaining. I'm more used to a Perl or Ruby approach, but Caml's is good enough for what I need to do.

I found an on-line book that is a pretty good introduction to O'Caml, and it answered some of the questions I had that weren't answered in the user manual. This makes my life much easier! I'll post the URL when I find it again, but it's only two or three links off the main O'Caml site.
