Hacking Away

I’m back to hacking on Minara, which means I’m actually following my schedule for the year. I’ve added code to handle transforms and I’ve streamlined and improved the buffer & window code. I hope to have the code in CVS next week. Transform tools, colours, groups and a decent pen by next summer. Hopefully.

I’m also getting ready to do more work on rheart. I’m just trying to learn Lisp’s packaging system at the moment, as asdf seems overkill. The next program, called “huey”, will handle colour. It will build on ae ’s ontology. I’m reading an interesting paper on colour perception and naming at the moment, and Harold Cohen was kind enough to send me a JPEG of a wonderfully colourful current AARON picture when I emailed him recently.
