|EBPG Fun Pak||EBPG, Linux||
All sorts of EBPG goodies, including gpfsort, gpfmerge, calc.py, align_window, find_edge, find_square, and more. Now contains fieldfudge.py, a cringy way of double-exposing patterns at field boundaries. Check out the presentation on drift and sorting for examples of gpfsort in action.
