QuestionWould an article about converting someone else's code to 32/64-bit be acceptable? Pin
Daniel Pfeffer18-Sep-19 8:16

I have downloaded the source of the FRACTINT package, a fractal generator that allows compiling the same source to run under MS-DOS, 16-bit Windows, and 32-bit X-Windows.

The writers, a group of otherwise unconnected programmers called the 'Stone Soup Programmers', have long since disbanded, and I cannot find any link to them. (They used to communicate via Compusrve (!)) They do, however, say in the program's about box that non-commercial distribution by BBS operators is encouraged.

I have performed a substantial amount of work to get the code to compile in 16-, 32-, and 64-bit Windows, removing a lot of the cruft that collected over the years.

Under the circumstances, would an article describing this (including the modified source code) be acceptable?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
