Subject: Java .abc application - great on a Mac
From: Gervase
Date: 26 Feb 03 - 12:25 PM

Forgive the blatant plug, but I've just come across a superb and simple java-based .abc program, Skink.
Developed by a chap called Wil Maculay, it runs perfectly under Mac OSX (something which Barfly sadly isn't up to yet without repeated crashes); opening, playing, editing and printing abc files.
And it's free!
Available here.
And no, I have no connection with Wil Macaulay - I just liked his software and thought it deserved a plug.

Yes Skink is a good program. Are you sure on the situation with Barfly? Phil Taylor had mentioned a release for OSX on the abcusers list but maybe it isn't a "production" version yet.

I don't have a Mac but have had Skink running on my WinPC. I've also had Barfly running here under the Executor emulator details of that little episode is here

thanks, Gervase! it, and it runs fine. Seems like a very handy thing. I like java programs. The export function will be useful!

The OSX version of Barfly is in the beta stage and seems to be very buggy. It's a lovely program, and still runs perfectly in native mode, but Phil Taylor's carbonisation still has a little way to go. When it's fully debugged and beyond the beta stage it'll be good, but Skink is beautifully simple - it does exactly what it says on the tin, and the MIDI export is particularly handy.
