This pastie holds my first C patch. It actually repaired a Readline problem that appeared on my Mac when I git pull‘d Io’s source today. See the Io issue at their bugtracker. The pgsql heroes fixed the problem way before, so I could stand on the shoulders of smart giants. I don’t know how to […]
A Swede made the first WideFinder implementation in Io: Ragnar DahlÃ©n. The results were informative, but not performant. Io can not compete just there, just yet.
