Thanks for the link. I did not know about that project yet, but it
does point over to the OpenBUGS site.
I agree with you it is a bit weird that the BUGS source code is
wrapped into those binary odc files. The most favorable
interpretation I can give this is that it is a form of literate
programming, where the code is wrapped into documentation and so
To the ODC haters: I agree, but...
This *is* an open source project, if you have the right editor. I ran
the free BlackBox program inside Wine just now. Putting code into ODC
files is not conceptually different from wrapping a CPP program into
LaTeX source code, or wrapping R code into an Rnw file. The fact that
the code is not just a flat ascii file you can read with Emacs does
not make it less open.
Is there any editor on Fedora that can handle these files? I
tried libreoffice but it appeared to crash.
