Yes, the ninth.  I was actually about to ask you.

or we just call it "Ubuntu".
Which is the better, headacheless version. :P

No, that moves the layer behind your selection. Which caused me to burst a blood vessel once.

Amid my hate for the comprehensive manual, I neglected to mention the 20 second load time.
Cut, paste, and then move

Although, I do use MSPaint for spriting 'n such.  Too bad Win7 paint screwed it, except the aliased brushes are pretty.

In GIMP, you click the move tool and then move it. :(

I use Arch Linux. :cool:

I'm using the default VGA drivers right now, and it's amazingly fast for no hardware acceleration.  Screensavers don't work, though, and Compiz asplodes my computer everytime I turn it on.

Also, Linux is the kernel, not the OS. :P

The kind of tokens you were thinking of were arranged in a tree, not linearly.

It's still tokens.  Just not the kind of tokens you're thinking of.

It doesn't parse. Parsing means analyzing
No; analyzing means analyzing.  Parsing means parsing.

Aww, I was beaten to it.  EIther way, does Josh's methods use tokens?  Yes.  Does it use a token tree?  No.

Plus, if I use Yacc, other projects can make off with even more easily modifiable pieces of ENIGMA.
Wait, what? Why are you releasing under the GPL if you don't want other projects to be able to use pieces of ENIGMA? Just release under another license instead of purposely making your code unreadable. Instead of hurting your own ability to program ENIGMA as well as you could, you could just get at the root of the problem.

More like, they think that, but Josh is perfectly fine with making his code the way he is.  It works, and if people choose to modify the parser, they can, but they likely won't.  The GPL is more for ENIGMA's main functions, not the parser.  It's a good practice to give out the source for free software.  Otherwise, you're just an ass.  And besides, you have to give out the source with the way ENIGMA is set up right now.

The reason Rusky and RetroX were arguing was that RetroX was being silly and thinking Josh's parser was a brilliant new way to do things, like a fluorescent lightbulb, when it's really the kind of parser someone would write when they haven't studied parsers. So of course it could work and probably will, pretty well, but it's not the best way to do things.
No, it was because Rusky was arguing seemingly like he had no idea what he was talking about, and was quick to "you're wrong, just because I'm right".  I actually have Josh on MSN, and I do happen to know what's going on.  I'm not an idiot, as I hope you should realize.  I just didn't understand what he was trying to argue, so I was providing the wrong argument in return.  Now, the argument is hopefully settled.  And Josh was in that argument, too, if you actually read it.

unlike the Gimp, where you have to go through 8 menus just to create a canvas and draw a pixel on it.
That's one menu to make an image, and then click the pencil tool and pick a brush to choose the size.


Photoshop's no quicker in that reguard.

You're a Linux user. The Developers care what their stuff looks like on Linux, and Linux endorses GTK, so your pidgin download isn't 20MB.
I was a Windows user as well until Win7 stopped working and I've neglected to reinstall it

I suppose we shall go with wxWidgets.  Either that or Qt.  Those are the only three things you should consider at all, and Qt is #3.

Does Firefox use XUL?  I thought it did.

The registry is part of the effing filesystem in Windows.  At least Win7 and Vista updated NTFS so registry was an option of the filesystem, whereas in XP/2k it was hidden.

In Linux, those three are the most common ones (and to be entirely honest, even if someone has something else, they'll probably not want to be running ENIGMA, anyways, since it'll most likely be an ancient computer running puppy or something).

it starts to work its way into your heart
like a bullet

Yeah, use GIMP.  The only thing that makes it less fit for pixel art than MSPaint is the fact that right click is a context menu, not background color.

Linux version *should* work on Mac, with a few hours of tinkering.
Mac is still UNIX, so the program will run (given it has the right extension, since Mac uses extensions, where regular UNIX does not).  The only problem is that you would be missing certain things required for runtime (the API, for example).  Although I'm quite sure there's runtimes for those things on Mac.
