Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
gturing 0.1.1 "alive & kicking" is out:
gturing is a simple turing machine simulator with
graphical interface. A Turing machine is the simplest possible
computing device which can only perform very simple operations.
However, almost everything in programming languages can be
written as a program for the Turing machine.
Of course, no one uses the Turing machine for actual computing
work, but it is very useful in theoretical computer science and
It's a nice complement for students who likes to practice with
theory and a nice toy to play with.
What's new in 0.1.1:
- First GNOME 2.0 port (complete)
- New state's editor
- gconf integration
- Updated documentation (Alexander Kirillov)
- Cleaner code
