RFC/RFS: yorick -- interpreted language and scientific graphics
I am adopting Yorick, an interpreted language specialised in scientific
(numerical) computations, with good drawing capabilities. The new
version packaged here supports compiled add-ons.
I believe it makes sense to review this new Yorick package together with
two add-on packages (I am packaging more) as design decisions were made
to ease consistent packaging of such add-ons:
yorick-z -- zlib, jpeg, png (and mpeg) support
yorick-yutils -- a collection of interpreted utilities
All three packages are pbuilder, piuparts, lintian and linda-clean,
except for one warning for the main package:
"The command rlwrap yorick 2> /dev/null || yorick listed in a menu file
does not exist".
This is due to the fact that I want the menu item to make use of rlwrap
if it is available. (Note that this menu item works just fine whether
rlwrap is installed or not).
All these packages are available on mentors.debian.net.
Best regards, Thibaut.
