Assorted Open Source projects I've been involved with (some of them date from before anyone would have thought to call them "Open Source") and other computer-related areas of interest.

o zsh, the Z Shell
In April 1999, I was appointed maintainer of the official sources for zsh version 3.0.
o PHPerl, combining Perl and PHP
The PHPerl Project links mod_perl and mod_php to take advantage of the strengths of each. This is mostly dormant now.
o Latte, the Language for Transforming Text
Latte is the first open-source product from Zanshin, and was used to produce most of these web pages.
o Blatte, a Better Latte
A Perl-based rewrite of Latte. Blatte powers the iPost Template Language.
o Linux, a free operating system
I use RedHat Linux at home and at work.
o Electronic Mail
It's my most frequent and favorite form of long-distance communication, and I write e-mail software for both fun and profit.
o Mush, the Mail User's Shell
I co-developed and maintained Mush in my spare time from 1988-90, which is how I got into the e-mail business; I still sporadically maintain an "official" patch archive.
o Parallel Processing
Back at OGI, I programmed for the very first Sequent symmetric multiprocessor machines and Intel Hypercube systems. If I ever make it back to academia, I'll probably return to multiprocessor research.
