Coins and stamps
Thanks to everyone who sent Alan coins, stamps, and emails in
response to my begging. He really appreciates it!
I've tentatively chosen a name for my curve editor: Spiro. I posted
a "code escape" here and on the Typophile forums. So far, I've gotten
little or no response from my posting here, but lots of people checking
it out and sending feedback on the Typophile board. Interestingly, many
of the commenters are encouraging me to patent the idea and/or otherwise
try to make money off it.
I'll have a new code snapshot soon. In the meantime I've been
tracing the miniscules from 72pt metal Centaur (see screenshot). There's
nothing like trying to use the thing for real to point out what needs
There's no rush, as I'm still tweaking the core algorithms, but
obviously this is something that should go into other free software
applications, most especially Inkscape. What I'm most inclined to do is
release all the core code as GPL, package up nice Win32 and MacOS
versions with refined GUI's (especially cut'n'paste with the dominant

code for inclusion in proprietary apps. We'll see how all that plays out.

[...]If I go this route, I'll need to factor the code into UI dependent
and UI independent parts. That's probably good discipline in any case,
especially if I'm hoping for the code to be adapted into other apps that
need curve editing (Gimp paths, inkscape, etc.).[...]
