Gnoetry 1-2-3

I’ve been fascinated with Jon Trowbridge and Eric Elshtain’s Gnoetry for quite some time, but have until recently contented myself with watching from the sidelines. There are several reasons — being busy with other projects, and mostly that the code is rather well-hidden from the public eye; there is a Subversion repository, but one has to jump through some hoops to get to it (I forgot how I got to the code; I think I might have emailed Jon about it).

After you get the code, there’s still the matter of setting things up. And SVN is a rather messy interface to use if one does not have commit access…

I’ve decided to take the plunge, though. I used git-svn to make a clone of the official repository, committed some usability improvements to a bugfix branch, and pushed the code to GitHub. Get it here (the master branch is Jon’s latest SVN code; the bugfix branch has a Makefile added that let you run Gnoetry by simply running ‘make’ — it does all the setting-up for you. ‘make clean’ cleans up the generated files).

Now, time to fix that unreleased-mutex-on-exit bug…
