[The guy who said he just stumbled accross this thing last week says:]


>> It is pretty cool... for a toy application...


We don't understand what you mean by "toy". It compiles itself. We
wrote the editor in it. We wrote the page-layout program in it, then
wrote the documentation in the page-layout program. Then we
spell-checked it. We drew the pictures for our website in it. We wrote
our JAVASCRIPT and our CGI applications in it.


>> Not so interesting in terms of compiler theory.


Are you quite sure?


>> When I was connected to the internet, it worked like a
charm, drawing pictures of George Bush, for example. Unfortunately,
when I *wasn't* connected to the internet...


The "Cal Monet" draws like a person draws. It "remembers" or "sees" an
image, then renders an original "dab, dab, dab" work of art based on
the image. How does it "remember" and "see"? By looking in it's memory,
which, in this case, is stored on various computers around the world.
