[PLUG] The Regex Coach 0.9.2 works on Linux under Wine

This came up last night at PLUG W briefly, and I just noticed that this 
never made it into the "The Regex Coach" ML archive, so cross-posting.

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: The Regex Coach 0.9.2 works on Linux under Wine
Date: Sun, 22 Mar 2009 15:41:09 -0400
From: JP Vossen
To: General purpose mailing list for "The Regex Coach" 

FYI, The Regex Coach 0.9.2 (and 0.9.1) works just fine on my Ubuntu 8.04
and 8.10 Linux under Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator).


Type (or copy & paste) these commands in a terminal window.  Note the
'$' represents the (non-root) user prompt.

$ sudo aptitude install wine wget
$ wget ''
$ bash ./winetricks vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008
$ wget -O regex-coach-0.9.2.exe ''
$ wine ./regex-coach-0.9.2.exe

* regex-coach-0.9.2.exe is just the usual TRC installer
* You will find the tool in the Applications, Wine, Programs, The Regex
Coach menu.
* Do NOT install Wine directly from the web, use the package management
system (usually RPM or APT/deb) built-in to your Linux distro and
version.  If you stray from that you will regret it sooner or
later--probably sooner.  Trust me.


Hope this is useful,
