Just a silly git launcher, basically. Inspired by sl.

Build and Install

$ make
$ make install # as root, probably

The default install PREFIX is /usr/bin.

You can change the speed of the car at compile time via a cpp-define. For example:

$ make CFLAGS=-DGTI_SPEED=100 # default is 50

You can also use Homebrew on Mac OS X:

$ brew install gti


Try typing git really fast, on an unfamiliar keyboard.
