Packages and patches


Dstr ("Dave's string class") is a C++ class that I use instead of std::string.  It has gotten cloned into so many projects now that I've made a shared library just to reduce the number of copies.


As of 2017-04-22, the last official release of Fvwm95 was version 2.0.43f, released on 2003-05-04.  I have fixed a lot of bugs and code rot to keep it running.  See the ChangeLog inside the tarball for details.

Original distribution:  fvwm95-2.0.43f.tar.gz
Patched distribution:  fvwm95-2.0.43f-dwf6.tar.xz

The 4G/4G split patch

A dead-ended branch of Linux kernel development that offered improved memory utilization on 32-bit PCs.


Version 5.1 (the last) of TEd, extracted from the NIST SQL Test Suite and patched as needed to compile cleanly on modern Linux.  TEd supports scripted editing of text files sort of like a fusion of the standard Unix tools sed and patch.  For operations spanning multiple lines I find it more usable than sed.  Documentation is included.


This nontrivial hack has a few extras that go with it.
