Pete's Blinky Page

This page preserves some shenanigans we got into in the System Software Research Group back in the day (2000ish).

If you don't use blinky, you suck! Blinky is the coolest little program. It was written by Paul Schermerhorn and is available here (rehosted with Paul's permission).

Anyway, I wrote a patch so that the cursor can beep as well blink, given the "-beep" command line option. View or download the patch!

And Rob wanted in on the fun, so he wrote a man page. (Previously at http://www.cse.nd.edu/~rmineric/blinky.man, but rehosted here, since that link is now dead.)

And finally: the blinky-vim theme song (version 0.2):

Oh blinky-vim, oh blinky-vim You are so blinky, blinky-vim And when you beep, you're bleepy-vim But when you don't, you're blinky-vim Oh blinky-vim, oh blinky-vim You are so blinky, blinky-vim
