SLUG Proceedings requests
Not to be a smartass, but...
I've gotten a couple of requests where people are being exceedingly
polite and saying;
`send scribe/text; whatever is easiest'
As it turns out, I turned the scribe into text, and broke up each into 5
sections and wrote those to file. Then I read each file into a string,
wrote a few functions that use (zwei:send-message-string ..) to send the
appropriate block(s) to whoever.
So, you want scribe, I say
You want text
[BTW: I didn't use keywords for efficiency reasons. See `Performance:
Pitfalls and Tuning' in the proceedings! (ok,ok, so I AM being a
smartass... it really was an interesting session!).]
Anyway, `whatever is easiest' is not trying figuring out whether you can
process scribe onto a printer.
BTW, I guess I'll start being a bit more netfreindly and defer sending them
out till evening.
