Does anyone on the list have personal correspondence with Chin?
It really seems a shame that all Chin's fine work cannot be used as
a base to port Yarn to Linux. At one time, he mentioned something
about releasing source code, so, at least then, it wasn't out of the
question. Since he has not released the source, it appears he sees
some problem that might arise were he to do so. Someone who knows
him might be able to explore Chin's concerns about releasing source,
and perhaps something could be arranged that would reduce his concern
and yet allow Yarn to go forward in the Linux community. Even if
source is not released, a port based on the source might be arranged
with a trusted party.
Yarn can be used under Linux with DOSEMU, but a native *NIX port would
certainly be preferable.
