"Stop Making Students Use Eclipse", because I think that #ComputerScience education sucks and we should do better.
I ported it, we had to fix some kencc issue to be able to compile this huge ~33M C vm. You can find 386 and amd64 builds and instructions on how to finish up the installation in the "releases" section. The code target is still just chez scheme and idk if there is an existing port of that, but mycroftiv is playing with it and seems to be happy so far :)
There is some work to do still.
Hey #plan9 people, I notice that what Unix called connect(), Plan9 calls dial(): https://9fans.github.io/plan9port/man/man3/dial.html
Any idea why the function was renamed relative to Unix?
Manpage has nothing on this. The source (src/lib9/dial.c) too. VCS repo (https://github.com/0intro/plan9) has dial() in the very first commit, dated December 2002.
Asking because I saw a call to net.Dial in some Go program, and wondered about the rename. I assume #Golang inherited that from Plan9.
