(In the image, the boxes are certain special Unicode characters. The first box is the BOM (byte-order-mark) and the last one is just a control character. A test character (the ら) precedes the ones from file, which is why the BOM isn’t first.)
A quick internet search will show you how to do this in Bash, but what about for a C++ program? If you want to color the text of stdout, it would make sense to directly write to it. Notably, Bash text coloring requires calling “printf”. That’s your first hint.
It turns out that, if you inline these color codes, you can print them out directly from printf inside your C++ program. Of course, you’re limited to setting one parameter at a time.
You can do a number of things (like underlining your text, setting the background color of your text, etc) depending on the SGR codes (scroll down the page to see them), but you’ll have to reset them with \33[0m if you want them to stop.
The graphic application applies to all text in the range except for tabs. I guess tabs don’t count as text. Spaces still work though, so if you want a blank area with a background color, use text for the spaces.
Sounds like a teaser for a title, no pun intended. Xp
There’s alot I’ve learned about Git in the past couple days. It seems Git is a nice set of tools. It’ll give you everything you need, but don’t expect it to do any work for you. Like any screwdriver, you have to do all the screwing yourself… one turn at a time.
Imagine this: You’re on your mobile device having a video call with family a long ways away. Your sibling raises the family pet up to the screen. With the flip of a setting, you turn on “Tactile Mode” for your device and proceed to wave your hand over the screen of the device. Small electrical signals come up from the screen and tingle your hand like the fur of your pet on the other end of the net.
Anti-Grain is a C++ vector graphics library. Irrlicht is a C++ game engine, though it’s also used for generic applications. Both of them are very quick to setup, but while Irrlicht is rather simple to understand, Anti-Grain takes quite a bit of time studying the code. It just so happens the two of them go hand-in-hand very well together due to each one’s flexibility. And best of all, it’s really easy to integrate them. Allow me to show you.
Last time, I spoke about ideas for reinventing the internet. I briefly touched on current technologies for doing the job. This time, I want to go into slightly more detail about the problems and the current solutions. I also want to share my recommendations for how these problems should be fixed, which I would naturally want to have included in a new type of browser.
Like many geeks, I have lots of ideas about how the internet should be reinvented. What’s wrong with it? Lots of things. I’d like to start off with the mess that goes on behind the scenes. This is of more interest to web application developers. Then I’ll move on and talk about what will interest the average netizen: the “new browser”.
