This page is largely obsolete in favor of sutff like my wiki bio, Advogato info and the RDF IG scratchpad.

This is [used to be] a collection of information relevant to support requests that I get about the various contributions I've made. The object of the game is to refer folks to these pages rather than draft responses individually.

SOCKS module for python
July 1994. Beta. Exports the same interface as the python socket module, but works over socks. Allows python ftp, gopher, etc. modules to work through socks. (No known defects as of Jan 1995, though it's not widely used).
WWWLib modules for python
July 21: (alpha). HTML parsing and other modules in C for python. Fast.
Feb 1992. No longer supported. This is mostly pointers to stuff that you should use in stead.
ANSI C code to parse HTML. Out of date. Available from the w3 ftp archives.
The RichText Widget
September 1992. A formatted text widget for Motif. Not editable. It works for some folks, but I haven't done C++/Motif hacking for a while now. (Yeah!)
... older stuff
