Re: Yet another toy editor for Xanalogical hypertext

Hash: SHA1

Hi again--

just wanted to add that if you are interested in how this format works,
you can look at our article manuscript (submitted to Hypertext'04):


(There's one error -- the screenshot of PYXI is incorrectly attributed
to Ted; it was in fact taken by the author of the program, Ka Ping-Yee.)

| "carpet" of all keystrokes you've entered in the current session.
| (There's no way to save the "carpet" though and maybe that view should
| be removed.)
| This is a Java program requiring Java 2 and you can run it on unices by
| running ./runDocuplex in the unzipped directory or by starting
| runDocuplex.bat on Windows (I presume). For usage instructions see the
| Docuplex homepage above; the only change is that there are "Open" and
| "Save" buttons now. (What is saved is the version you are looking at
| currently.) Don't try to open a file that has not been created by
| Docuplex (unless you have some other source of correct TIML files, which
| I doubt ;-)) because that'll just give you errors.
| This is still very much a toy, error handling is essentially nonexistent
| and the UI isn't too great and so on. But it *is* a way to create plain
| text (i.e., no formatting) files containing text with global identities,
| which you can share or put on the Web.
| (I hope that nobody minds the cross-posting -- I thought this might be
| interesting to people interested in Xanalogical hypermedia, and didn't
| know a better place to post it as sunless-sea is kind of nonworking.)
| Enjoy,
