The documentation for pacc was prepared using texinfo. (Documentation systems are often the subject of holy wars. I've been sceptical about texinfo in the past, but it's the simplest system I've ever used that knows anything about producing indexes.)

The manual is available in several formats.

  • PDF. Far and away the prettiest version of the pacc manual is this PDF. If you want hardcopy, or have an ereader with decent handling of PDFs, this is definitely the version you want.

  • HTML. Next best is this HTML, handy if you're online. (If you have any interest in a standalone downloadable HTML version, without going to the effort of building it from source, let me know and I'll see what I can do.)

  • info. If pacc has been installed on your system, then you can read it with any of the standard info readers, for example:

    info /usr/local/share/info/

    I'm vague on how to properly register a .info file. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

One thing pacc needs is more users. And, perhaps, one way to get more users is to reduce the friction in getting started with pacc. An obvious lubricant is packaging. Read More...

Release relief

Looking at _pacc_coords(), I noticed that it seemed to have the same realloc() bug that I'd just fixed in _pacc_result(). However, the "list of arrays" trick really wasn't going to work here. Read More...
