I have volunteered to develop and maintain this software. Please
send comments, suggestions, questions, and bug reports to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find new versions of the software at:
integrated small unreleased changes from Andrew
quick change to the toolbar to look like Win 97 apps
fixed scrollbars positioning
added simple undo/redo (unlimited, still alpha)
I plan on adding a number of new features to the editor such as syntax
highlighting. The project manager needs to be expanded to handle mixed
language projects (common for me :) and adding file specific settings.
You can look forward to things as class/functions browsers, "error goto"
during compiles, and a more structure user interface. And much, much more.
BTW, I'll be changing the program's name.
What is it
PVM is software development environment, written in pure Tcl/Tk which can
be adjusted to different programming languages and source file types.
It incorporates a text editor, simple software project (makefile) editor
and enables you to develop and build your software projects from within
single program. And for debugging your application, it can start your favorite
It also enables you to execute almost any external program (e.g. "diff"
or "dircmp") and capture its output into a specialised PVM text window.
It looks like a MS Windows MDI application and has highly reconfigurable
What you should know
You should have a good understanding of how software is usually built on
a UNIX system. Such as:
Hopefully, this will not be necessary in future releases.
how does "make" work
creating Makefiles by hand
be comfortable with your compiler's and linker's options
having used an archiver for libraries to good too
To install and use PVM you need:
UNIX / X-Windows environment
Tcl7.5 / Tk4.1 or higher
"xlsfonts" program. I use it to enumerate known fonts.
