Little Victories

After weeks of searching I found the source code to an old program I wanted to port to a microcontroller. I think it’d would have helped if I went into the search knowing the name of the program.

It was written for X11 on Unix systems. The comments in the code says it was created in July 1990, updated in January 1991.

I had to add a few #include’s and tweak the library path in the makefile but in about 20 lazy minutes I went from never looking at the code to running on OS X.

Not bad for code that’s 20 years old!
