-- a text console for the gp2x screen
I wrote this because I got tired of seeing black screens whenever I ran
shell scripts. With gp2xole, you can see what's going on!
You can pipe any text to it:
$ ls | ./gp2xole
$ ./gp2xole < /proc/cpuinfo
It's based on SDL_Terminal
which supports some of the ANSI escape sequences. I'm working with the
author of that library to add more. It's going to have a new
and project page
This version is pretty rough (like this webpage), but I'd like to see
it improve. The screen shot illustrates one thing I'd like to fix --
Included are several examples that illustrate the kinds of things you
can do with gp2xole. I think it will be a useful tool for developers --
especially for installers.
Here is the binary
and the source
as of 9 Feb 2006. Note
that the binary is a self-extracting gzipped-tar shell script. Put it
in the root of your SD card, and select it as a Utility from the user
interface. It will extract a folder, gp2xole, in the same place.
You will also need the
to use gp2xole. The source code doesn't have makefiles
right now -- I use an internal make-maker tool called jmake.
