Why tintin++? Process of elimination!
- tinyfugue’s website had no useful information and was even more outdated than tintin++'s.
- Savitar was shareware, and it’s looking long in the tooth these days.
- The Atlantis interface was awkward, and I had trouble wrangling it’s flexible but underdocumented scripting interface to do what I want.
- tintin++'s interface is simple enough that you can figure out how to do pretty much what you want by brute force.
- Mac OS X:
brew install tintin(Fink and MacPorts users, you’re on your own.)
- Other platforms: Likewise on your own.
