GNU Smalltalk Cairo Clock Demo

(This page is a mirrored copy of an article originally posted on the LShift blog; see the archive index here.)

ScreenshotI’ve taken Mike Anderson’s Cairo clock applet demo and updated it ever so slightly for GNU Smalltalk version 2.95h.

I’ve also written a small patch, available here, intended to apply atop fixes-2.95h.patch, which gets the code into a position where it will run without change on both my stock Debian x86 desktop as well as my OS X 10.3.9 box with a prehistoric Fink 0.7.2 and a hand-compiled libcairo.
