I read in some of the reports from oopsla '97 that Adele Goldberg intended
to release Analyst and other old parcplace libraries. When Analyst was
released it seemed like an ideal data exploration tool.
Does anyone know if this is available yet?
The Analyst was/is? a product of Xeroc Special Information Systems and not
ParcPlace. Its not available yet, nor have had any success in finding a good
contact. Any suggestions, Squeakers?
Actually, I was the one who expressed an interest in resurrecting the Analyst
in a version of Squeak, and Adele offered to help enable this and other
"software archeology" by releasing the sources file from Smalltalk-80 version
After a bit of searching, we have located a copy of the 2.3 sources and are
waiting (patiently) for its release.
I have a number of class libraries already ported from the KSC libraries that I
will release as soon as the portability code from 2.3 is released. These
- More advanced, fully pluggable SelectionInListViews and CodeViews
- A DialogBox framework
- A very full-featured button framework by Ken Auer
- The KSC version of HotDraw for ST80, original code by Ward Cunningham
- ObjectWorld, a HotDraw-based greatly simplified clone of Randall Smith's
Alternate Reality Kit
- A primitive but very useful windowbuilder that generates user understandable
code for windows and dialogs
- Several custom code generators
- Lots of enhancements to base classes
In addition, I am currently working on a port of the DMIX music composition
system by Daniel Oppenhiem of IBM Research. Its about 3MB worth of sources.
