Developmental webspace of Eric Pement

This is a developmental page only, and just keeps some files that I happen to like handy. Web techies might note that both the text in the block above and the wide snake-skin frame are semi-opaque (you can see behind them). It's an effect produced with cascading style sheets.

BibleLink is a perl script to create HTML hyperlinks to Bible passages in a file. Handles references like "Jn 8:24; 10:1, 8-10" and "chapter 6" and lone refs like "(2:10-12)"; interaction usually required. Script remembers your previous choices. I wrote it for use at Moody Bible Institute.

Connect (a/k/a The IBM Handshaker), ver. 7.5, by Dima Orlov. In my opinion, the best Norton Commander clone available as freeware. It is a full-fledged DOS shell with a Borland-style interface supporting a powerful text editor (regexes, line-draw, formatting, syntax highlighting, vertical blocks, etc.), a multi-window hex editor, views text/dBASE/HTML files in structured format, file manager with support for 4DOS file descriptions which are preserved on file copy/move/ren, supports Win 9x/NT/2K long filenames, advanced filters, modem terminal, phone book, calendar, calculator, environment editor, CD Player(!), and more. The docs are in Russian, but right-clicking on any menu or option brings up English option boxes. Here is a somewhat longer description

You can get the latest version with the source code from the Connect home page, but the file download is fairly slow, so I'm putting it on my server in the United States for quicker download times. And for those who require screen shots before downloading, here are four: [one], [two], [three], and several on [an OS/2 page]. Though this is a DOS console app, I use it on my Win2000 system, and it works just fine. As with all freeware, the risks of using it are yours, not mine.
