I think that Ctrl-C should work as Ctrl-Break. > PS: How about using the name 0.92 for this and 0.93 for Blair's > project of kittenizing the whole thing (100s of messages...) ? > Or maybe even 1.0, who knows? ;-) 0.92 sounds best for this version (because the letters are starting to get boring), and maybe 1.0 for the kittenized version, ONLY if it is verified to work on large hard disks properly. I was thinking that to make the kittenization easier, I would simply make new functions called kitten_printf and kitten_write that take two extra arguments than their clib contemporaries (for the message catalog numbers). Are there any objections? Reasons why this would be a bad idea? I found that with FDPKG, I did this and it greatly decreased the binary size by using only two calls to kittengets() rather than many. (only increased by less than 2 kb). Otherwise there would be the same amount of printf calls and many kittengets calls. With my method, the already present printf calls are replaced by the same amount of kitten_printf calls, and then there are only two extra calls (1 vprintf and 1 kittengets in kitten_printf).
