So I like to write computer programs. My medium? C C++ Ruby. I'm learning Common Lisp/Scheme, Smalltalk. Hopefully I'll get rid of my habit of C++/Java soon =D.

Interesting thing. I just bumped into this online resume of a certain Antonio Mejias. In his "Graphics Design & WEB skills", he lists Peacock-2 among other greats like Macromedia Dreamweaver etc.

I feel special :-D

Here's the link


Finally got back to hacking a bit on ORE. I'm still fixing method calls that have changed over the past few versions of the ruby-gnome2 bindings.

So it turned out to be false alarm/update/whatever you want to call it. I'm still stuck with gnome 2.6 (although dpkg -l|grep gnome) shows some 2.8 packages. Guess all of them haven't gone into "testing" as yet.

Gnome 2.8 on Debian

So I'm just see-ing the final steps of running "sudo apt-get upgrade" on my debian box. Everything goes well, I should have gnome2.8 :D

So I was working on a class project (a small interpreter for a mini scheme like language, more about it some other time), and I bumped into a weird C++ thing. There is no std::string::tolower() or std::string::toupper() function. You'll have to do something like

std::transform(str.begin(), str.end(), str.begin(), std::tolower())

for example to tolower all the chars in a string. As it is not that difficult to see, the "Transform way" involves more typing, and well...awkward a bit.
