What happened in January?
Steak Kuishinbo near the CTI office:
We enjoyed reasonably priced beef. I had the oroshi-steak
set with salad, soup and rice for about 800 yen.
Linux heaven! The CTI head offices with Linux machines
coming out of the walls.
Crazed Members Present
Joe Marchak (Get on the net Joe :-)
Summary of events
This month's theme was interpretted languages and Rainer (firstname.lastname@example.org) was
prepared with a TCL demo that showed various system performance
statistics. We discussed TkPerl, Rex, and forth. Everyone is
still looking for development languages that are cross-platform.
We really want a PIGUI (Platform Independent Graphic User Interface),
but have not found a suitable tool yet. TkPerl is still in
alpha, so it might be best to stick to Tk/TCL.
email@example.com, (James), explained how to create
"compiled" perl programs with a unix command and a Perl flag.
Dave explained a few pointers on kanji input with Wnn and
also spoke about a few tricks with audio output.
We also spoke about new kernel patches, e-cash, and Linux
compared to other UNIX operating systems such as SunOS,
Solaris, BSD and HP/UX. Everyone thinks Linux is the best!
Summary of Decisions
A temporary mailing list will be set up courtesy of Cyber Technologies
International (CTI). CTI has also agreed to donate meeting space
for the meetings. We are going to hold the meetings on the third
Sunday of every month with the next meeting on February 19th, 1995
at 11:00 a.m.
Everyone is encouraged to volunteer to do demonstrations. Before
a demo, you should communicate your intention with others by use
of the mailing list.
