Parsing XKB files with antlr

antlr (well, antlr3) is an amazing tool that replaces lex/flex, yacc/bison. One would use antlr3 if they want to deal with Domain-Specific Languages (DSL), an example of which are the text configuration files. In our case, we use antlr3 to parse some of the XKB configuration files, those found in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/??. Our aim is to …

The OLPC and Greek

Σπάσαν τα καλώδια

Την περασμένη εβδομάδα έγινε ένας ισχυρός σεισμός κοντά στην Ταϊβάν. Το επίκεντρο ήταν στη θάλασσα, κοντά στις νότιες ακτές του νησιού.

Ένα από τα θύματα ήταν τα καλώδια οπτικών ινών του συστήματος APCN 2 που συνδέουν την …
