soreardons: my todo wrt nobench: (a) create templates $(eval foo) so that adding new compiler option sets is a one-line affair (b) get it using time(1) so I can safely run it in the background (c) have anacron do a daily nobench run! (d) parser-friendly XML output
donsre. d) the output is dumped into a .db file for each test
that's just a 'show/read' structure that is easy enough to parse
the other things all sound good
i want to add hbc support today, and port the rest of nofib
xicdancor: you mean just windows from your application, or all of the windows from all applications?
soreardons: where are the .db files? are they not created until the very end?
er, found em. find(1) saves the day.
xic: he specified "writing an expose-like thing", so all apps
xicoh...... don't do that. "expose" is shit
dons;2A
CaleExpos?
It's better than nothing, it's not a replacement for multiple desktops.
dancorxic: all windows
xica replacement for multiple desktops would be a window manager with tagging support, like wmii :)
dancor: i'm not even sure that you can do this with xlib
dancorCale: i just want a better alt+tab
Cale: bringing all window into view and numbering them for selection seems good to me
sorearAlt-Fn forever!
C-x b is also handy, esp with iswitchb
CaleThe only problem with the Expos way to do it is that often you have lots of windows which look similar when scaled down.
dancoryeah
sorearI don't like windows.
dancorCale: so you just don't overlap and remember which desktop different things are on?
soreardons: gah, on partial-sums yhc is >33% slower than hugs!
actionddarius should get Ubuntu on the web so he can use ion in a friendly environment.

CaleYeah, I mostly organise things into desktops, and I have a taskbar in my panel that shows the windows on the current desktop.
xicdancor: my window manager doesn't let me overlap windows, and it lets me tag windows
sorearAnd I don't use windows at all.
CaleI liked Enlightenment's pager, back when I used it. It showed a snapshot of each of your desktops, and the windows were actually draggable in the pager.
sorearI can, I have a system supporting them ... but I never want to use it.
Fitt's law can be completely subverted by eschewing mice.
ShammahCale: I do however find the expose approach a really useful adjunct to virtual desktops - especially on a v.small screen.
CaleWhen combined with multiple desktops, it's nice
because there are probably only a few windows to look through on each desktop
sorearyhi executes very different instructions from ghc or hugs
ShammahCale: exactly - I personally find expose invaluable given I'm using a 12" display here.
sorearI have the kind of computer that makes perceptibly different noises depending on the instruction mix :)
CaleHehe, when I was using it, I had a 23" display :)
ShammahI can have 4-6 overlapping windows per desktop over 4 desktops gives me up to 24 windows open and I don't really notice the smaller display that much as expose allows me to quickly get a handle on any given desktop.
