## Zampolit ## Copyright (c) 2011 Brian Sniffen To run [`Zampolit`](http://hackage.haskell.org/package/zampolit) and collect the data for these pretty graphs, you need a few things: * The version control system `git`, with its svn extensions. * Gnuplot. * Haskell. Athena and all modern operating systems have the first two, either installed by default or in a locker or easily installed package. But Haskell's more of a pain. You can [download it](http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/), then run: cabal update cabal install zampolit git svn clone PATH/TO/YOUR/GAME # replace this cd YOUR/GAME zampolit It will churn for a while through the entire history of your game, then deposit `GAME-wc.data` and `GAME-wc.gnuplot`. If you have Gnuplot installed, it will even run gnuplot for you to produce `GAME-wc.pdf`. Some games have authors who write under several names. For example, I committed to "Fistful of Promises" under the username `brians` and the name `bts`. So in that game's top level directory, I create a file `.namefold`, in which I put the single line: "bts","brians" Then everything committed by `bts` is rewritten to be from `brians`. For Harry Potter: Year 7, Paul committed under two names. For him we write: "Paul Weaver","pweaver" The sample file `dot.namefold` is an example of how to do this.
