There a couple of things that would make PaulStretch more longterm viable. They (mostly) don’t seem that challenging:
- update the XMLwrapper to use the new Mini-XML 3.0 API. Some of the direct references to fields in Structs has been replaced with method call / accessors.
- fix minor warnings. There is a method lacking a return that prevents -Wall from being passed to g++.
- create a brew thingie… the terminology is odd, it might be a Formula or a Cask.
- finally learn enough Autotools to create a standard build. It’s very likely that i’d get this horrible wrong and hate myself for even trying… but it does seem like The Right Thing™.
There are a couple of pull-requests outstanding in GitHub, some of which have been there for years… no idea if Paul is still in anyway interested in the project. Perhaps i’ll end up creating / owning a fork. Yuck.
