Does anybody know Matthias Nutt?
Once in a while, I search the web for Perl/Tk. I'm always happy to find some old jewels. This time, it was keen little rabbit ears, which is a simple ear training program for Linux and Windows. It has a Perl/Tk GUI and comes with good installation instructions.
You can find it here: Keen little rabbit ears.
I downloaded the script, got the dependencies (it relies on timidity to play MIDI files) and tried it out. Then I did some changes, like use FindBin to locate files relatively to the script in the file system, use File::Spec to build paths, and use File::Temp to create the temporary MIDI file for timidity in a proper place.
But, then I wanted to share the code with Matthias Nutt, the original author. He has a web site: matthias-nutt.no-limit.de. But the feedback form is dead (have a look at the anti-spam picture).
So, does anybody know Matthias Nutt? Or: does anybody know how to handle this kind of code? Can I set up a git repo with the new code without risking expensive lawsuits?
