rectoad and recowl

big change. ripped out retroforth because it was kind of slow. put the
whole thing in a recfile. surprising nobody. the difficult thing about
this change (although i am otherwise happy) is that the source is a
single file, the rec database at `/db/database.rec`. this makes it
impossible (as far as i know) to to an incremental build such as with
make(1) because the source file, as soon as you update it, is
immediately newer than all of the target files. so everything gets
rebuilt on every build. so i just build everything anyway for now. until
i can figure out something better.

also i export the comic to gemini, which you can find at the link below.

Is there even such a thing as "mainstream"
anymore? I mean it used to be the case that
everybody watched the same nightly news and
listened to the same radio station. And
"counterculture" was growing your hair long
and listening to rock and roll. Now the duality
of mainstream vs. counterculture seems as
quaint as the idea that there are only two
genders or only two sexes. Kids don't listen to
rock & roll to rebel, they listen to soundcloud
emo rap, or whatever, and if the niche sound that
speaks directly to them doesn't exist, they can
invent it and upload it for the world to hear with
little more than a cheap laptop.

So I picked up a book in the middle of this epic
fantasy series. It's by this author who I heard
does really good sword and sorcery stories, and
I'm into that. Anyway the story opens on a
tragic, lonely noble lord, last of his line,
subject to disfigurement because of the family
curse and whatnot. But, get this, it totally
takes place in Old Germany during the rise of the
Nazi party!

I was so disoriented that I looked it up, and
there will eventually be a classic fantasy
storyline that interweaves with the modern
nazi storyline.
Which means eventually the hero is literally
going ride a dragon to Hitler's bunker and punch
him in the face and if there's one thing this
world needs more of, it's mother fucking
dragons beating the shit out of nazis.

So I was down by the capitol and I noticed some
kind of protest was happening. I saw a couple
people wearing US flags and thought to myself,
ew, probably a bunch of treasonous right-wing
fundamentalist bastards. Which, you know, is
always the first thing you think when you see
somebody wearing the US flag. But then I saw
somebody holding a "My Body My Choice" sign and
thought, aw, it must be some pro-choicers! And I
decided to get a little closer to check it out.

# toad.md
> the pro toad and superb owl comic generator
## about
This program reads a script file and interpolates its contents with some ascii art, and then writes the result to stdout.
The end goal is automating the creation of [Pro Toad and Superb Owl][ptso] comics.
[ptso]: https://git.tilde.town/dozens/protoadandsuperbowl
## usage
$ retro toad.md path/to/script.txt > comic.txt
## components
the components of the program are:
1. IO - open the text file, read it line by line, close the file, write to stdout
2. input parser - there are 2 line types in the script file:
- a text line, and
- a separator line: a special `---` line to separate panels.
3. comic builder - build the first panel, the second panel (no input needed, just output tanel 2), and the 3rd panel (repeat steps needed for 1st panel)
4. panel builder - for as long as art array has length, and as long as the current input line has length or until the input parser hits the separator line or the end of the file, call the line builder with the next line of the art array (if there is one) and the input line.
If the input line has no length, and the next line is not the separator, have the line builder insert a "blank line" and get a new input line.
5. line builder - given two strings, build a new string containing the first, and appending words from the second up to a total of ~80 cols.
## argument validation
print a helpful message if the script is called without an argument
~~~
script:arguments #0 eq? [ 'Error:_Missing_argument s:put ] if;
~~~
## panels
okay let's go
There are two panels: one where toad speaks, and one where owl speaks. Let's save each to an array, one string per line.
Here's toad (panels 1 & 3):
~~~
'toad var
{
'_(@)(@)_____{0,0}__
'_(~~~~)____./)_)___
'_(>vv<)______"_"___
'___________________
'_____\_____________
} !toad
~~~
Here's owl (panel 2):
~~~
'owl var
{
'_(@)(@)_____{0,0}__--_Hoo?
'_(~~~~)____./)_)__________
'_(>vv<)______"_"__________
} !owl
~~~
Also here are some code fences, because we'll need those too:
~~~
:fences-open '```tcl s:put nl ;
:fences-close '``` s:put nl ;
~~~
## Input/output
open the file for reading and save the file handle to `handle`
save the file fize. we'll use this to check for end of file.
~~~
'handle var
'size var
#0 script:get-argument
file:open-for-reading !handle !size
:get-line @handle file:read-line ;
~~~
## Input Parser
TODO: this isn't tested or used anywhere yet.
~~~
{{
:end-of-file? (-) @handle file:tell @size gteq? ;
:separator? (m-f) '--- eq? ;
---reveal---
:end-of-section? (-f) separator? end-of-file? or ;
}}
~~~
## Line wrapping
Here's a line wrapping module.
~~~
{{
#0 'displayed var-n
#40 'wrap-at var-n
:wrap? dup @displayed + @wrap-at gt? ;
:display [ nl !displayed ] [ displayed v:inc-by ] choose s:put sp ;
---reveal---
:s:put-wrapped (s-) ASCII:SPACE s:tokenize
[ dup s:length wrap? display ] a:for-each
#0 !displayed ;
}}
~~~
src:
<https://github.com/crcx/retroforth/blob/master/example/wordwrap.retro>
## Panel 1
print out the first panel
ascii art:
~~~
fences-open
@toad [ s:put nl ] a:for-each
~~~
text:
~~~
[
get-line
dup '--- s:eq? not [
dup s:put-wrapped nl
] if
'--- s:eq? not
] while
~~~
wrap it up:
~~~
fences-close nl nl
~~~
## Panel 2
~~~
fences-open
@owl [ s:put nl ] a:for-each
fences-close nl nl
~~~
## Panel 3
print the ascii:
~~~
fences-open
@toad [ s:put nl ] a:for-each
~~~
print the text:
~~~
[
get-line
s:put-wrapped nl
@handle file:size @handle file:tell gt?
] while
~~~
wrap it up
~~~
fences-close
~~~
## Conclusion
That's all! That's the end

bottom: I got close enough to see a bunch of the other signs and they were all like, "No Jab! No Vaccine!" and that's when I knew I had been tricked. It WAS a bunch of treasonous right-wing fundamentalist bastards! I said "ew" again and turned around and ran away.

Is there even such a thing as
"mainstream" anymore? I mean it used to
be the case that everybody watched the
same nightly news and listened to the
same radio station. And
"counterculture" was growing your hair
long and listening to rock and roll.
Now the duality of mainstream vs.
counterculture seems as quaint as the
idea that there are only two genders or
only two sexes. Kids don't listen to
rock & roll to rebel, they listen to
soundcloud emo rap, or whatever, and if
the niche sound that speaks directly to
them doesn't exist, they can invent it
and upload it for the world to hear
with little more than a cheap laptop.

At the other end of the LONG TAIL of

furry, and because of them there are as
many small STREAMS and countercultures
as there are individual people.

There was a sense of euphoria while we
were in flow, like we were invinsible,
but afterwards everything seemed
brittle and fragile like it was held
together with duct tape and kite string
and like it might all come crumbling
down if the wind blew in from the wrong
direction. And there we were in the
aftermath, unsure whether we
accomplished our goals, who we hurt in
the process, or if there was anything
good about it all.

I was so disoriented that I looked it
up, and there will eventually be a
classic fantasy storyline that
interweaves with the modern nazi
storyline.
Which means eventually the hero is
literally going ride a dragon to
Hitler's bunker and punch him in the
face and if there's one thing this
world needs more of, it's mother
fucking dragons beating the shit out of
