libLQ and mc2 (makefile-creator2, the next generation)

Posted 04-09-2012 at 05:15 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-04-2013 at 10:21 PM by rainbowsally (new version)

This project is currently stalled but may be useful for folks that don't like C++.

The new libLQ-qt (3.0) and mc2 (bundled) can be downloaded here.

If you DON'T want the qt support continue reading. If you do, pls use the link above.

This is now ancient stuff, but it's simple and if you are new to C, this might be interesting to analyze....

Intermediate C - getch-term

Posted 03-31-2012 at 03:27 AM by rainbowsally

Intermediate. That doesn't mean you have to be an intermediate C programmer to use this. It just means that it will probably be more understandable to those who are at about this level of programming skill.

  • getch()
  • simple ansi sequence to keycode converter
  • expandable

There are several versions of getch()-like functionalities on the net but none of them handle ansi sequences well (or at all) and none of them are very clear as to what they do or why.
