the Larry Doolittle branch of Ciaran Anscomb's superb evilwm

Until Ciaran finds the time to process and integrate my work, I offer my evilwm modifications to the world for general use and further testing. In fact, Ciaran and I are (as of 2005-04-26) in contact and pulling our versions back together. Watch this space for the result!

2005-09-19 update: cross reference to evilwm-0.99.18. Ciaran absorbed a lot of my changes, and I'm folding a few that he didn't forward. So far, it looks really nice.

Original material, direct from Ciaran and sourceforge:

My mirrors of the above:

My contributions:

All my testing, usage, and development of evilwm is done with Debian sarge and sid, on x86 and x86_64 platforms.


Behavior changes: Build changes: Code cleanups (a.k.a. gratuitous changes):
Triage of evilwm bugs listed on sourceforge:

The options-permute script that shows up in my version takes 56 minutes (on my Athlon 2600+) to check 4096 build combinations. gcc-3.3.4 and the options -Os -Wall -std=c99 -D_XOPEN_SOURCE -W -Wstrict-prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wcast-qual -Wshadow -Waggregate-return -Wnested-externs -Winline -Wwrite-strings -Wundef -Wsign-compare -Wmissing-prototypes -Wredundant-decls finds no compile-time errors, and only the following two warnings:
misc.c:31: warning: passing arg 2 of `execvp' from incompatible pointer type
screen.c:79: warning: `draw_outline' defined but not used
