Book Collection: Other

Posted 12-29-2012 at 03:59 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

File conversion script

Posted 12-29-2012 at 10:04 AM by Snark1994

1. install Gnuplot (through your package manager)
2. cabal install gnuplot
3. use ghci:

Code:
$ ghci
GHCi, version 7.4.1: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/  :? for help
Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.
Loading package integer-gmp ... linking ...

After that last rant about screwy software, I found some GREAT software. mpg123 is outstanding.

MPG123 (sandboxed relocatable binary installation OR compile from code, modify, experiment, etc.) is linked...
