I had the oddest experience last night.
I’ve been wishing for a copy of
vi (the text editor) for AtheOS for awhile now. I couldn’t stand it any longer last night, so I went to vim.org, downloaded the latest Unix source package, transferred it to my AtheOS machine (Lady), and tried to compile it. To my shock, it compiled and ran fine.
I’d just ported vi to AtheOS.
I’ve never ported anything before. I’ve always regarded application porting as a byzantine act best left to
So, I put it up on a little webpage, added an entry on Kamidake, and announced it to the AtheOS community. Maybe it’s already been ported, but this is such a good feeling.
