Some people use GCs for memory leak detection.
I like this idea, however, I don't like it as a standard practice.

I think that GC is a waste of time.  If you leak memory, that's your own fault, and you can use valgrind and a debugger to find it.

The fact that languages like Java that heavily rely on GC are being used for teaching is terrible, and that's probably why my graphics drivers can leak 20 MB by just opening a window.

ENIGMA has structs.

Also, double newlines are very good for helping readability.

Also, Josh, I wouldn't recommend uploading anything until ENIGMA is done.  In that case, I'll just zip the directory structure and send it to you.

Native widgets should be used.  It really should be standardised. :V

Approximately how much does ENIGMA cost, in trillions of dollars?

mouse_get_wheel_scrolls() might be a better name.  vangle implies an absolute angle or an angle measure of some kind, which is not the case.
