ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

See attached file, and this code tag content. Identical, but in the CODE tags the spacing is all screwed up (and a vertical pipe character is missing):

override off:
N ------------------------+
L _______/ _______/ _____(X)
		sw	  pir	  
override on:
N ------------------------+
						  |
	 ___/ ______		 (X)
L___/   sw	  \_________+
	\______/ ___/	
		  pir	  

(view file in notepad with font set to courier)

I think I spotted this once, a while ago, in that the code tags don't use an equally spaced font. It makes ASCII art a pain, but I'm not sure if there is a work around or not.

Courier is usually an equal space font, so I wonder if it works with that section in Courier instead of the default font?




No, it doesn't seem to work even then.
