terrible logo, way too clever. Even after reading your explanation I didn't immediately get it. At the very least try a different colorscheme.

That's great, but not everybody has Ghostscript installed. How about making it available as a PDF as well?

Arconaut - I like that! Better than Arcist, Archer, or Arconista.

The simplest approach is probably to create SVG images.

The "add-to-list" line for some reason is not enough to automatically activate the arc-mode for *.arc files, although I can activate it manually by doing M-x arc-mode.

By adding a variation of your snippet to my .emacs, I got arc-mode to activate automatically:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/arc0") (autoload 'arc-mode "arc" "Arc mode." t) (setq auto-mode-alist (append '(("\\.arc$" . arc-mode)) auto-mode-alist))

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I get the following error: File mode specification error: (void-function arc-mode)

Cool. Logged in using http://www.mibbit.com/ to work around the corporate firewall, but it's dead silent right now.

here is a recap of what has happened in arc over the past 12 hours.

some excerpts:

* ams has joined channel #arc

<ams> i'd like to rewrite linux in arc, where do i start?

<mattl> arc is certainly capable.

<ams> and it is a exploratory language, so it shouldn't take to long

<bgeron> I'm not so sure about that

<ams> are you saying arc is not good?

<ams> why not? why can i not write linux in arc?

<ams> pg says it is the best language out there

* wvd has joined channel #arc

<wvd> hello

<wvd> I'm starting a company, I'll call it bizarro google and instead of hiring CS and math phds I'll hire only cobol programmers. I'm sure Y combinator will give me venture capital for that.

<wakeupsheeple> can i be co-founder

<wvd> what will your business focus be?

<wakeupsheeple> we will consult companies with solutions for their webapplications based on 'software as a service', providing content to their users

<wakeupsheeple> wvd what should i name my web 2.0 company, Quaykor or Kwxxypp

<wvd> totally go for Kwxxypp, vowels are for the weak

<wvd> register the domais kwxxypp.ru, that way people wont think that kwxxypp is just some random string of letters but instead that they might have some kind of non-unicode browser that does not render cyrillic URLs

<wakeupsheeple> your first duty as Kwxxypp cofounder is to register that domain since i've already posted the business plan here

Don't you think the icon should be a bit more neutral? Would you consider using a cross or a crescent? Me neither.

To automatically open *.arc files in scheme mode, add this to your .emacs:

(setq auto-mode-alist (append '(("\\.arc$" . scheme-mode)) auto-mode-alist))
