First of all, "n" doesn't necessarily stand for "Neven", it can stand for
"ncurses", "new", or whatever else you want. ;)
Some of the features are:
o browsing the profile (in a tree-like mode)
o starting execution from selected elements (and it's children)
o still browsing the profile while output is scrolling in a separate window
o pausing (and stopping) execution and scrolling up the output
o nice run-status marks, so you can know which elements are currently being
executed, which failed, which are successfully done etc.
o automatically skipping already (successfully) executed elements
o displaying detailed element info
o creating a statically linked, self-contained executable
(for a simpler "building environment")
There are a lot of nice things that are going to be implemented (most of
them are in TODO file), so this is just a beginning. :)
The only requirement is the expat library from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/expat/ or directly from
expat-1.95.1 works fine too.
It's C, it's ncurses, it's GPL, and it's here:
Any suggestions, bug reports, new ideas etc. are highly welcome.
Tell me what you think.
