making 'Map Scale Legend' by Alejandro Grijalba work in GIMP 2.10

Posted 06-23-2019 at 11:50 PM by Yury_T

Just edit mapscale.scm in any text editor and change three occurences of NORMAL to NORMAL-MODE

(on linux, the mapscale.scm resides in $HOME/.config/GIMP/2.10/scripts)

The trivial diff for that:

--- mapscale.scm.prev   2019-05-01 22:22:40.453929977 +0300

Bash script to create a unified pactl-rexima-amixer command

pactl set-sink-volume 0 ${1}% && exit 0 
pactl set-sink-volume 1 ${1}% && exit 0
val=${1#+} ; val=${val#-}

So, in mid-March I applied the intelligent sorting logic to lump together, and thus identify algebraically equivalent duplicate expressions, and also those expressions which are not (apparently) algebraic equivalents, but appear to produce the exact same solutions. Of these groups of effectively equivalent expressions, my program then eliminated all but the preferred (briefest and 'best-looking') expression. This produced a list of 1315 algebracic expressions, to which I began to refer as my master...
