UNIX Port of Clarity?
« on: July 14, 2012, 07:21:00 AM »
Will there ever be a UNIX port of the Clarity Environment?

Can the source be compiled on UNIX, or does it contain too many Windows dependencies?

Thanks for your time.  :)
If at first you don't succeed, call it Version 1.0

If you look at the source code you will see that it is written in standard C++.  The platform dependent material is kept separate to the core interpreter as X-Files (prefix with an X) which contain all the appropriate API's.  The original core FAITH interpreter was initially developed on a SUN workstation using UNIX.  We then moved to using an old Apple Mac system and then finally a PC Window operating system.  For a long time we kept both the Apple and PC versions going but in the end we just continued with the PC.

I should imagine that any UNIX programmer who took the current source code could change it to work under a UNIX system.  The source code is available to download free.

Thank you for sharing. There are things here that I didn't think some time as of late. Because of cool such a position, to the point that is to a great degree carefully taken, we will talk a huge amount of colleagues about it.

I'm not a pro in Linux, is UNIX a general name for the whole family of systems, or what? I'm operating Kubuntu myself...
