I’ve got this idea going around in my head about a command line utility that is part text editor, part programming language.
Before creating this, I plan to write a port of sed as a learning exercise.
I’m calling it "Mushrat" after the way a character says "muskrat" in SWAMP CAT by
Jim Kjelgaard (archive.org),
a book I read as a child.
It shortens to
mr and I don’t see any other super popular CLI tools with that initialism.
And the "rat" part is evocative of my "ratfactor" domain and handle.
TODO: a funny drawing of a muskrat
TODO: links I’ve gathered so far (Firefox: Projects > Mushrat!) (split across the mushrat topic pages above?)
TODO: move notes here from my "better-sed" page on ratf (not linking here so search engines don’t pick up on it resulting in an "Uncool URL" when I remove it!)
