[9fans] Inferno's mk copy on Mac OS X vs Plan 9 from User Space
The mk that comes with Inferno "fails to fail" when building Inferno
sources on my Intel Mac on Mac OS X. The mk in Plan 9 from User Space
doesn't appear to have this problem.
Does anyone know of any specific differences between the two?
I wonder if I could use P9P's mk to help me get through my recompile
of Inferno for Mactels.

i think that p9p mk uses /bin/sh to execute commands for bootstrapping reasons
(it's rather difficult to mk rc with mk using rc for a command interpreter.)
but otherwise it would be nice if mk used rc.
p9p is faithful enough to plan 9 that often changing the mkfile is the most difficult
part of porting something from plan 9 to p9p.

Does Go use things that are bison-specific? If not, maybe Berkeley Yacc
(there are various versions around) would be easier to port.

That's why I ask about Bison experts, it's hard to tell how deep the
usage of bison-specific features goes without some familiarity. I do
suspect that there is a whole generation of programmers out there that
only knows the ...[9fans] fossil in Plan 9 from User Space
I'm wondering if/when fossil might become part of plan9port. I found only a thread from 2007 mentioning that it had not been ported.
It is of particular interest to me because I'm preparing various machines (which are not supported by Plan 9) to manage data on dedicated disks. My thought was to use Plan 9 from User Space, under BSD or Linux as necessary (defending upon hardware support), and fossil to provide a consistent interface to these dedicated disks, and to ensure portability (in case the disks were moved to new platform; to avoid migrating the data to a new file system).

Some Plan 9 and Inferno users will be at What The Hack, a "outdoor
hacker conference/event taking place on a large event-campground in the
south of The Netherlands from 28 until 31 July 2005."
The 9fans will have a own village, called "Glenda Village", with
free beer, a Plan 9 network running and some presentations around Plan 9.
Everyone is invited to join us and be converted to Glenda. ;)

one way to estimate the size of a software's user base is to measure
the volume of traffic on mailing lists devoted to the software.
so, here's some statistics about the 9fans mailing list,
created by looking at the file size information on the
9fans archive web page http://bio.cse.psu.edu/~schwartz/9fans/
from Dec 2002 through May of this year, the latest month for which the
web page has information, there was 5.0 "megs" of traffic on the list.
that volume of traffic is about the same as that of the first 6 months
of 2002 (5.05 megs) and the first 6 months of 2001 (5.11 ...OS 9 users
For those that are for now still working in OS9 only, are there any specific
to updating to 9.2 over staying with 9.1? I was once told that 9.2 only
Carbon compatibility for using in the Classic environment of OSX.
Any idea if this is true, and if not, specifically what extensions/control
is anyone aware of that have improvements applicable to 9?
This also includes a few desktop accessories which I recall also were issued
with 9.2 labels.
Some items have 9.2 labels but the same creation/modification dates as the 9.1
thanks for any input.

If it's bison -y -d then maybe even Plan 9 Yacc would work.
The bison dist has a manual, probably even with an index, in which you
can look up suspicious constructs and decide if they can be safely tossed

I don't know why the obsession with how an os/app looks... The post is

...[9fans] Help for home user discovering Plan 9
We have three Windows laptops in our family. I've been using free
software systems off and on for years. Last week I learned about Plan
9 from Bell Labs, from someone in a Linux Questions forum. Now I have
it installed on a partition on my laptop, along with XP,
Ubuntu-on-NTFS, Debian, and Slackware. I've learned to access a fat
partition, change the font size, and use Acme. Now I need to learn how
to set up a wireless connection to the family router network, access
my files on my wife's Vista laptop, and browse the Internet.
My wireless card is not listed in Plan9.ini. Does that ...[9fans] 9pm/Plan 9 kernel in user space

Thanks to everyone for all the information and ideas!
At first I was going to try to make Plan 9 my all-purpose system on
this laptop, but for now it looks like I'll just be using it to learn
more about networking and distributed systems. I've tried using
virtual machines in Windows before to run other operating systems, and
I've always ended up installing them independently in their own
partitions, but I may have to use Plan 9 on a virtual machine if
that's the only way I can connect to our family network.
First I just want to get comfortable and develop some skills in the
