what is the package that gets you man pages for stdlib functions?
I found those with apt-file search printf.3
hmm, the only manpages ones I have are -hu and -tr
manpages-dev is in main
5-axis is brain twisty
skunkworks: maybe you can reply to that cnczone question (linuxcnc.org/emc2/ vs. linuxcnc.org/hardy): they are different repositories, signed by different keys.. that's why we can't unify them

found it .. thanks
Oh yea, right.
I just felt I needed to add a bit of info to that thread.
I really appreciate skunkworks taking the time to keep up with cnczone.
I'm really hit and miss on those sorts of things.
yeah, email is lots easier
Heh - I like message boards.. I don't know what it is with you guys.. :)
I thought about joining when CNCzone started up, but I figured it would turn into an advertising-supported flash fest
so I didn't :)
jmkasunich: what's new?
not much - doing woodworking lately
I think this was one of my first posts http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8383&postcount=43
skunkworks: I see you had the same typos back then :P
I am nothing if not consistent..
not a high bar, posting to a thread "What forums would you like too [sic] see added?"
the forum says "Discuss Enhanced Machine Controlers [sic] here!"
"I will see what we can due..."
heh - what do you expect from machinists?
come on folks, jeez
Eye wood like two sea a forume disgusting the Embiggened Maschine Contorloror
surprisingly - I didn't notice that.
yahoo said it was spelled right.. Just might not be a real word.
I meant it's not surprising at all :D
oh - sorry - I was being punny also
Any of you guys used Fastcad or Easycad?
back in the "winders" days.
sorry - no.
rayh: I only used some free 2-D cad on winders
I think it was called Free2Design
Seems like I remember something about it.
I used (and use) easycad
There is a Linux Beta. I've got mine coming now.
the page seems dead (www.free2design.org)
You want to be a tester.
you talking about easycad 8?
actually fastcad v8
is it now in "public beta"?
I know its been in selected beta users hands for a while now
I just got to be one for Linux.
I'll refer you if you want.
my usage is intermittent, so I'm not sure how valuable I'd be as a beta tester
I used it this morning to draw up some shelves
V8 is supposed to be _very_ different
I hope the learning curve isn't too steep a climb
It's running here but I don't know what I'm looking at yet.
[19:35:16] <SWPadnos> http://napkinspace.com/
is it that, or something later?
that looks like it
you need a username and pw to download
ah ok - I hadn't clicked the download links :)
Want me to have them send those to you both.
well, it depends
if they're handing them out freely, sure, I'll try it
I wouldn't mind, but I don't think I would be of much use in the near future
if they want a commitment that I'll use it and give them lots of feedback within some limited timeframe, then probalby not
They didn't ask me for anything like that.
I've been wanting a linux version of easycad for years
I would have been thrilled with a linux version of 7
(and instantly bought it)
Said they were needing Linux testers and that development was slow because there were few test folk.
I'm reserving judgement for version 8 till I experience it
oh, well under those terms, maybe it would help :)
Looks a bit different to me. Just started drawing lines.'
if they are seeking linux testers, sign me up
Okay to both of you'se guys eh?
fastmail a good addy, jmkasunich?
and sover for you SWPadnos?
It's on the way.
Hope Mike get's back to you soon.
rayh, any chance of signing me up as well? ve7it at shaw.ca ?
You bet Lawrence. I'll post a note in just a few minutes.
I don't seem to have an addy for you, LawrenceG
ve7it at shaw.ca
ve7it at shaw.ca :)
< LawrenceG> rayh, any chance of signing me up as well? ve7it at shaw.ca ?
You bet alex
rayh: kidding ;)
rayh, is the download source or just a binary.? I see its a tar file, but whar are the contents?
sounds like binary to me
The tarball has an installer.
LawrenceG: it's not open-source afterall
It is binary.
easycad is not free software
but it is inexpensive compared to autocad and such
I've owned a copy for windows for years, also use it at work
I ran a copy under dos on a trs 80 laptop with an 80-186 processor
I had a vision of the tiny little Tandy 100 computer there
the one with the 4 or 8 line, 40 character display built in
And 4k core memory
up to 32 even
[20:11:48] <SWPadnos> http://oldcomputers.net/trs100.html
we actually made a photo process controller out of one, using the parallel port (and BASIC)
wish I could find something close to vcarve http://www.vectric.com/WebSite/Vectric/vcp/vcp_index.htm
ArtCam is another one that seems to be pretty popular
What is the truly remarkable price?
let me remark.... cough cough.... too much to spend on windows
Makes a Linux user grit her teeth.
good night all
see you Alex
