LibStroke - a stroke translation library
LibStroke is a stroke translation library. Strokes are motions
of the mouse that can be interpreted by a program as a command. Strokes
are used extensively in CAD programs. I fell in love with them when I was
using the CAD tools that use a stroke interface to select tools or perform actions.
I wrote this library so that others can see how useful
strokes can be and so that more programs take advantage of this extremely
natural human-computer interface.
There are two mailing lists for LibStroke -- an announce and a development list. If you would like to join (or be removed) please email willey at etla.net
