Sphinx C-- source code available (Announce)

posted by Guti(R) Homepage, 20.10.2015, 17:27

Very strange it decided to upload RAR an ZIP files to Github, instead of raw uncompressed sources and/or binaries.

Not clear if the intention is to preserve it, or try to give it a new maintenance and improvements.

Personally loved Sphinx, not suitable for real applications. In fact, it was coded in C++ not in Spinx itself. Any way, was funny to code with it, quite likely an enhanced macro assembler with high level structures.
