PalmPGN - Credits
Many thanks go to the people who have assisted in this process.
I'll never claim that I did this all by myself. In no particular
order, thanks go to:
- Tim Mann, for his ideas for best using WinBoard for this
- Weldon MacDonald, for his suggestions for supporting email and
annotations, and his review of and thoughtful comments regarding
Also, many thanks go to the folks who wrote the tools that were
used to develop this product and website. Most of these tools are top
notch and Open Source (no coincidence, there). In no particular
order, thanks go to the folks behind:
- The PalmPilot. Nifty little
gadget, and the Palm folks have really done a great job supporting their developers.
Emacs, by RMS, and its NT
port, by Geoff Voelker. It's a great environment, and I do
all my professional and recreational coding with it, as well as
most all of my text editing and a good bit of my Usenet news
- PHP, a nifty little language with which this website was
- SourceForge, which has
made this project much more enjoyable, by removing a good bit of
the admin tasks from my plate. Thanks very much for this great
- GCC, a free(ly available) C/C++ compliler by www.gnu.org, and PRCTools,
its port to PalmOS, (also hosted here on sourceforge.net. Also, I'm
a flavor of GCC that produces native Win32 apps, to write test
harness code for PalmPGN.
- CVS, aka Concurrent Versions System, which is the free(ly
available) source control system used by SourceForge. Turns out it's a
pretty slick little system; I'm using the CVS command line client
code on NT, and if you desire, you can get the server and run it
yourself. Anyway, having it on SourceForge is great stuff, and
makes doing a project like this easier and safer.
