It's still pure ruby tho', no?
has anybody gotten this to work under windows?

I've got version 1.9 running here (WinXP), but it does have some
dependencies - fox toolkit, fxruby, and iterator.

Simon, no rpa package for it yet? one in the works?

version 2.3 is no longer pure Ruby, I had to write a ncursesw wrapper.
previously I used ruby-dl to wrap the library, but it consumed too much
memory.

I've got version 1.9 running here (WinXP), but it does have some
dependencies - fox toolkit, fxruby, and iterator.

version 2.x is written entirely from scratch and only depends on
libncursesw and ruby. No dependencies to fox, fxruby and iterator.
So I guess that version 2.x is pretty much restricted to unix (sorry
about that).

version 2.x still need a few features before version 1.9 can be abandoned.
for instance it lacks syntax coloring.

previously batsman has been kind to make rpa packages for me.
maybe I should investigate how to make one myself.


btw: where is batsman?

version 2.3 is no longer pure Ruby,

i usually try to get my linux/windows setups almost identical (in look
and use for the most part) that way i can switch back and forth
between boxes and everything is the same: email, browsing, and
coding, etc.

there's nothing wrong with writing a linux only application. there's
tons of them out there, but doing it in a cross-platform language
hurts a bit

I am terrible sorry. I want to make aeditor crossplatform.

aeditor 0.x was only for ncurses.. a tui interface.
aeditor 1.x was only for fox.. a gui interface.

I want aeditor 2.x to become both tui and gui.
but right now its only for ncursesw (notice the w suffix.. it means
widechar support).

Im right now working on importing my old syntax coloring code
from aeditor 1.x into aeditor 2.x. Hopefully I can accomplish this
before this weekend ends.

Then I can look into what it will take to get it running
on windows. However I cannot compile binaries for windows,
so if anyone knows how to do this.. please contact me :)
