Quoting enthusi
Mac can neither display PETSCII nor ASCII =)
OH NOES!! but ... it doesn't have .NET 4.0 either, so i guess that evens it out.

Those that have no access to .NET (like myself, I own no Windows box, ok there is Wine butI'dprefernotthankyou) can try Gnylf V1.2 under VICE. Haven't had the need to try that either yet.

@Medicus: good one, hehe
@King Durin: I don't have any problems with your release, as I have .NET 4.0 installed, but also don't need your proggy - did a class for that already long time ago for my internal project. (c;
Anyway, imho projects should be compiled/released with a minimum requirements, and .NET 4.0 is sure oversized, don't you think? But you're right, everybody and every n00b got a VS installed and can compile it itself :D so who cares?! hehe no offence!

Anything in this a single line of 'sed' (or even 'tr') can't do?

1) 16-bit DOS programs don't run on 64-bit Windows.
2) Runs under the .Net 4.0 client profile which is much lighter than the full .Net 4.0 installation.
3) I wrote it cause I need it. I released it because I figured at least one other person mind find it useful.
4) It's open source. Don't like how it's compiled? Compile your own copy with whatever settings you like.

@Groepaz - The coder doesn't even know petcat exists.

... and all the crying about .NET ... who cares, don't like it? Don't download it.

waaaah... .NET 4.0 is sure not needed and oversized for such a small proggy! .NET 1.x or 2.0 would be definitly enough, which I guess most windows-user already have installed...

@King Durin: next time check your project-settings for "target-platform" ;D

"Boohoo, i dont want to install .net4.0" .. cry me a river.
Sure, why not, let's all code in fortran or something equally ancient. What is it with you people and your reluctance towards .net ?

Or are y'all still using win 3.1/95/98 or whatever ..
