Newsflash (17 Apr 00): If you have had any trouble running
the Mac or Windows ports of the code, read the
Newsflash (18 Dec 98): the Mac port is here! Special
thanks to Mike Miller, hacker extraordinare and the author of the CBofN
Java applets, for making this possible.
Newsflash (26 Oct 98): the Windows port is here! Also, the
X Windows and Windows graphic drivers now have a nice color map. See
the ``miscellany / errata'' section for how
the new graphic capabilities have changed the command-line options.
The source code is currently available many flavors:
- cbn-noarch-src.tgz - only the
source code. You will need either (1) GNU make and
gcc, or (2) Microsoft Visual C++, in order to
build the source. Moreover, perl and sed are
required to build the manual and HTML pages. Get this only if you are
hacker that wants to get down and dirty with everything (216 KB).
- cbn-noarch-src+docs.tgz -
same as above but has the manual and HTML pages prebuilt. Get this
only if you are hacker but you don't want to build the docs (259
- cbn-noarch-src+docs.zip -
same as above but as a zip archive. Get this only if you are Windows
hacker (462 KB).
- cbn-linux-bin.tgz - contains
everything prebuilt for an i386 linux box with glibc and glibm (498
- cbn-sunos-bin.tgz - this
contains everything prebuilt for Sun machines running SunOS. (1,177
- cbn-win-bin.zip - this
contains everything prebuilt for Windows 95/98/NT (1,807 KB).
- cbn-mac-bin.sit.hqx - this

While the code is known to work under Solaris, I currently don't
have access to a Solaris machine, so a binary distribution for it will
have to wait.
