This page is tremendously out of date, by something
like fourteen years. Since I last did anything with this page,
I've been with two
different start-ups that went public.
I keep trying to free up the time to turn it into a legitimate vanity
page, but work soaks up all of my creative time. Basically, assume that
everything on these pages dates from the stone ages. But I leave this
part of the site here in case someone from that era comes visiting.
Note: The chance that I will sell you the doubleu.com domain is zero.
Welcome to my (Scott Hess') home page. I develop and distribute
NeXTSTEP programs, and also do some NeXTSTEP contract work for clients
with money to spend. My current focus is on development of UI components
and their supporting data structures for NeXTSTEP, though I am experimenting
with Tk/Tcl. Of course, the Apple+NeXT stuff is making me look at
OpenStep more seriously, now.
Quick overview of some programs, all for NeXTSTEP:
is a replacement for Terminal.
provides new Services menu entries, and also allows the
user to easily create new entries without using Objective-C.
shows CPU usage in an application icon on.
is a prototype which allows -NXHost style execution of
remote applications on NeXTSTEP3.x without requiring
Public Window Server.
OSCVS.tar.gz saves CVS directories in .nib files across
saves, for OpenStep/Mach or OpenStep/NT. If you don't know
what CVS is, or why you need to save the directories across
saves in IB, then you don't want it. (And don't ask me!)
Tcl.NIHS.pkg.tar.gz is a binary distribution of tcl7.6,
compiled for NeXTSTEP3.3 (m68k, i386, sparc, and hppa).
tcl7.6.tar.gz is the source code I used to compile it.
This code is as-is, do not expect me to fix anything
which doesn't work or is perceived to not work. I have only
tested this under NS3.3. It will not work under OpenStep, I
have not tested it under OpenStep, and it will not work under
OpenStep. So don't ask.
Max.app.NIHS.tar.gz is a small app to let you toy with the
Mouse AXeleration parameters (Ha!). It provides a somewhat
sensible UI for this, and reverts to your defaults pretty easily
with a command-key (or just Quit). Useful if you get your
acceleration parameters well and truly screwed up.
- Partition is a small FAQ I've written
to help some of the newbies who are trying to figure out
NeXTSTEP/OpenStep disk partitioning. Due to historical oddities,
this isn't as easy as people seem to expect - nor as hard as
they seem to make it. Not a very complete FAQ, though, as I
mostly hoped it would help people find a direction for further
Of course, there is more, since I've been programming NeXTSTEP for
quite some time. But, some efforts were embarassing (Robots!), or written
under contract. Look for my name in Info Panels ...
