Hangman is a paper and pencil guessing game for two or more players. One player thinks of a word, phrase or sentence and the other tries to guess it by suggesting letters or numbers, within a certain number of guesses. In this version for children the computer selects a word, phrase or sentence randomly out of a word-list defined in a configuration file. In the course of the game ASCII-Art images - designed for children - are progressively disclosed. There are 10 built in ASCII-Art images from which one is chosen randomly at the beginning of the game. Alternatively own ASCII-Art can be provided in the configuration file.

This project is discontinued. Please use pandoc-notetaking instead. The code of

Markup languages like Asciidoc are perfectly suited for quick note taking. Type your notes with your favourite editor, view and browse them with Chromium, Chrome or Firefox.
Real-time embedded systems have to meet a combination of requirements that are in deep tension: they are expected to deliver timely results, observing strict deadlines, all using only very limited resources, computing power and energy. To this day, the most common programming language in this environment is C/C++ because of its zero-cost abstractions and fine control over memory layout. With the upcoming communication ability through network interfaces, an additional requirement gained in importance: security.
