Scans the commands from the comment lines of the document and executes them automatically. Great attention is paid to the flexibility and ease of use. ## Limitations ## TrY is written for Linux and works on Linux. I didn't test the program on Windows. **CAUTION: I don't know if the program properly works on Windows. I think not.** ## Contents of the package ## * try.nw: the source code for the program and the documentation * try: the python program * try-doc.pdf: the documentation * README: this file * COPYING: GNU GPL license informations ## How to compile it ## The source file (`try.nw`) is written in [noweb][*], a tool by Norman Ramsey for [_Literate Programming_][**]. To extract and compile the program and the documentation use the following commands: program $ notangle -Rtry try.nw > try $ chmod +x try documentation $ noweave -index -latex try.nw > try-doc.tex $ pdflatex try-doc.tex $ pdflatex try-doc.tex $ pdflatex try-doc.tex ## Installation ## Make the file `try` executable then copy it into the `bin` directory of your system, e.g.: $ chmod +x try $ sudo cp try /usr/bin/try ## Use ## Open a terminal and use the following command line: $ try [file [--log] [--safe] [--verbose] | --help | --version] $ try [file [-l] [-s] [-v] | -h | -V] More on this in `try-doc.pdf` ## Contributing ## If you want to fork the project or if you want to send a pull request, or simply download the latest version go to <https://bitbucket.org/ajabutex/try> ## License ## This material is subject to the GPL - GNU General Public License.
