"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive

Member "readme" (10 Jan 1988, 1311 Bytes) of package /linux/privat/old/td_0_2.tar.gz:


As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 Textdraw (td) is a small utility that allows do draw (ascii-based) line-,
    2 rectangle-, ellipse- and text-objects with copy/paste/move features.
    3 
    4 For me it completes existing console-based software to a 'textbased only
    5 office' and offers a simple and easy way to draw ascii graphics for
    6 documentations, presentations, mails and much more.
    7 
    8 Read the attached file 'help.txt' to see what's possible and how textdraw
    9 works. See also the help page of the program (key: 'h').
   10 
   11 For compiling from source (td.c) you have to link ncurses and math - do it
   12 with the command: gcc td.c -lncurses -lm
   13 
   14 There are a lot of ideas for a newer version (i.e. colors, patterns,
   15 group/rotate/mirror objects, polygons, ascii-art-import) and the actual
   16 version seems to be stable (under 'normal use'). But as it fullfills all
   17 I need I don't intend to program a newer version.
   18 
   19 Feel free to improve this program under the conditions of the general
   20 GNU-license-agreement.
