@nicolagi I installed Plan 9 from User Space on my Linux, and before I realized, I was opening sam and acme to edit files.

I suppose I could live developing stuff in drawterm and doing the building with a script on a Linux terminal in other virtual desktop... 😁

@yrabbit Indeed, it's useless to do that on that particular function...

The one right below it needs this so I could picture the tree from the output (I was lazy, didnt want to write something to display a proper tree on console)

Since I was studying for monitoring the students of algorithms and data structures, here's a picture of Acme while I was testing an implementation of an AVL tree, built entirely in Plan 9.

The special thing here is that while everything was done in Plan 9, it saved remotely to my Linux laptop as my laptop's root was mounted in /mnt/term through drawterm.

9front emailschaden is released and the SDF Plan 9 Boot Camp 2020 has moved from 9xenpcf-pae to 9front. Par0dy is over, thanks for playing. WelCOM 9Front Parity.


@nicolagi C programming in Plan 9 feels very different than using C on any POSIX system. I think I wouldn't know where to start learning if I didn't know C before using Plan 9....

This might require a step back to Linux or Mac

@nicolagi It feels heavy compared to the rest of Plan 9. I think Go solves a problem which exists on Windows, Linux and Mac before anything.

But it didn't work anyway, my Pi image is arm64, there are no arm64 builds of Go...

Installing Go on my local 9front box and already regretting it.

@bkhl @emacs Lisp indentation in Emacs mixes tab and spaces by default, could be related to how tabs are rendered in an Org file.

Plus, this prepended indentation seems reminiscent of an old version of Org, You should visit the Org website and add the official repo to your package-archives variable, then update Org or install org-plus-contrib.

In Brazil, to this day "LAN House" is a term that encompasses everything from internet cafés to what are effectively arcades for kids who can't afford their own gamer PCs. This façade, for a more business-oriented one, looks extremely anachronistic.

@ffuentes The werc readme says something about configuring httpd to start the script bin/werc.rc. Might be it. This way, you start httpd only and it takes care of the rest.

I'm gonna try configuring it tomorrow too. I'll keep notes so we can trade some info

@ffuentes I was studying and didn't see your message on com, sorry. Did you manage to run werc?

@xmanmonk Just guessing here, but does it mean something like "outshine"?

If any of you got Plan 9 running on SDF VPS or on any local instance, I recommend having a look at uriel's slides:

9fs 9front.org && cp /n/9front.org/extra/uriel.slides.tgz /tmp/

They have a lot of quick details on Plan 9's history, plus comparisons with Unix and Linux.

@SDF @opr It seems 9front is not friendly towards that. :/ But running it from the VPS install itself works fine.

@opr @SDF How exactly did you attach to the remote CPU server?

Connected to my Plan 9 slice at SDF, built and installed and tested a program from my local fs via /mnt/term :)
