Half done wiki page

Half done wiki page

Hi all,

As I threatened, I wrote up a developers tour guide to Shoes at
http://wiki.github.com/shoes/shoes/a-developers-tour-through-shoes

Sadly, not all textile is the same and I used one that has some, umm
issues at github/shoes There much formatting to clean up but I'll do
that in the next few days. Sucky formatting aside it does describe how C
Shoes is put together so it might be of use to C programmers that want
to understand Shoes and Ruby programmers that want to understand Shoes.

It might even point out things that the 'Shoes in Ruby' folks need to
investigate (modules and mixins that Shoes does in C) as they develop
the next shoes. 

I also learned that _why anticipated or accommodated the needs of C++
compiling and runtimes. We might be able to slide a C++ Gui like QT/GTK
+/wxWidget into the native/ directory without major disruption. Maybe,

Being a wiki page, you are free to edit that page and fill in the
missing content. I hope you do. Or fix the css for tables, a place I
care not to treed.

Wow, thanks for that. Looks great. Not finished reading through yet, but
wanted to reply whilst I had a chance.

Looks very in depth, keep up the good work Cecil!

I adjusted the code blocks formatting a little, and will keep an eye on any
other updates that can be made to improve the readability of the page.

Hi Cecil,

At last, I read the developers tour guide and added a little bit.
Keep up great work!

Thanks for the updates to that page, Zach, ashbb, et all.  Too bad you
didn't fix the typos and grammar for me. Oh wait, I said I was going to
do that. Real Soon Now (RSN). It takes me a few days after writing
something to edit it properly. I won't bother the mailing list
announcing my little edits.  

One odd thing is that http://wiki.github.com/shoes/shoes/ and
http://github.com/shoes/shoes/wiki are not the same page.

Oh, really?
I didn't realize that.

But when I input the following url on my firefox for Windows,
http://wiki.github.com/shoes/shoes/a-developers-tour-through-shoes

then redirected to the following url:
http://github.com/shoes/shoes/wiki/a-developers-tour-through-shoes

Are these the same page?

Only one of those homepages has the side bar with all the wiki articles
listed. It's fine if you start from  http://shoes.heroku.com/ but the
side bar is missing if you click the wiki button at the top of your
github page.

I added a link at the top of http://github.com/shoes/shoes/wiki to the table
of contents page. Kind of miss the sidebar in githubs new wiki version.
