Kragen Sitaker's home
It should be noted that my legal name is still Kragen Sittler.
I finally decided to go ahead and organize this, since there are more than
20 items on here now.
These come first because they're the most popular.
These are texts of different kinds, mostly indicating my thoughts on
This is software that was written to fulfill some purpose other than the
mental exercise of writing it. That doesn't mean it's actually
useful, just that it was intended to be useful.
- Kragen's Dynamic DNS
- A command-line dictionary-lookup program that uses the web; there's a fetcher, a postprocessor, and a tiny shell script that ties them together, available in a
single tar file for convenience; they're
written in Perl, use netcat, and were tested in Linux. Last updated 7
- prototype macro language for the WWW
- metext, another one, which I've been using
more recently, which doesn't actually have macro capabilities. Every
time I've really needed a macro, I've added it into the script. So it's
pretty ugly, but it takes the typing out of HTML. Written in Perl. No
documentation, but my home
home page has some examples. Accessible via
- cheapo Markov-chain text modeler
- A desk calculator, written in Tcl with Tk. Little
functionality so far. If you have the Tcl plugin, you can use it in
your Web browser at calc.tcl.
- A searchable index of the RFCs, last
updated 2 September 1997. It's just a webbification of some command-line stuff I'd put together.
Note that a
similar service using Harvest is available from the InterNIC.
This is software I wrote just for fun, or for examples.
- An example of binary trees, for a friend of
mine who wants to learn how to program. Last updated 21 September 1997.
- A slide rule, in case you don't like
digital calculators. Also viewable in the Tcl plugin. Only A, B, C,
and D scales so far, and no pi yet.
- An example of hashing I wrote in C++ for a
friend of mine who wants to learn how to program. 4.6KB, last updated
13 August 1997.
- Another programming example, demonstrating
backtracking, etc. on the map-coloring problem. 94KB, last updated 21
