Requirements

Linux

  • ncurses
  • A C-compiler like gcc
  • cmake (not actually necessary)

Windows

  • Windows XP or newer

Installation

Linux

  • Run cmake:

    cmake .
    
  • Compile:

     make
    
  • Install:

     make install
    

Windows

Run the installer, e.g. ctodo-1.1-setup.exe.

Usage

Linux

Run from a console using:

ctodo

This will create a todo.txt file in the current directory or open the file if it exists.

Alternatively you can run ctodo using:

ctodo someotherfile.txt

Which will open/create someotherfile.txt in the current directory.

Windows

Right click in any directory (or on the desktop) and open the New-menu. If ctodo was installed using the installer, the option Task List should be available. Click on it.

This will create an empty task list which you can open with ctodo by double clicking on it (if you installed using the installer).
