For my uncle’s wedding my brothers and I did a show where we took his name and used its letters to create a bunch of new words that are part of a speech about him. This was visualized on a projector by a program by me that let’s the letter swirl around, forming each built word, as well as some „special effects“ (such as rotating one letter around to show another).
apt-get install darcs gtk2hs libghc6-cairo-dev libghc6-gtk-dev libghc6-mtl-dev happy darcs get http://darcs.nomeata.de/anapres make ./anapres examples/RolandHochzeit.anapres
I can also provide pre-compiled binaries, if you want.
There is a very simple text file format that describes the sequence of words and special effects, but so far it is only tested with the one example file (the one from the wedding).
If you want to try this and have any kind of trouble, do not hesitate to contact me. I’m also interested in bug reports and patches, of course.
