Also, I'm developing a hypertext help system for use in your programs.
What I've come up with is called QML, here's a sample:
Code: Select all
#1 $Color 1 | #2 $Color 2 | # $Color 7 | #9 _A Bright Blue Link>http://example.com
More features are in development, to comply with the new QML 1.1 spec.
Anyway QML caught the interest of Brandon Cornell and he has now written a browser for Linux and Windows in FreeBASIC. You can get his browser CQML here:
http://brandoncornell.com/CQML/CQML_Linux.tar.gz -For Linux, requires wget
http://brandoncornell.com/CQML/CQML_WIndows.zip -For Windows, includes wget
Right now Quickspace (what I'm calling the QML net) could use a few more pages. There's a lot you can do with it already (for example I've written an RSS reader and a search engine), but we could use more community participation and a bunch more .qml pages. If anyone's interested, it would be great to see some new web designs.
The great thing about QML is that it supports ALL the IBM extended characters like only a textmode browser can, which really opens the door for a lot of ASCII art.
So, what are your thoughts?
