FS Letters II

Improving my first version – FS Letters – I changed a core behavior. Instead of going thru the whole file system, saving it, interpreting it and then displaying it, I now went for a dynamic approach. As the filesystem gets checked (60 times per second), the screen is also updating. This makes for both a more efficient (no freeze!) and a much nicer program. If the program is done checking the file system, the text ‘done’ will appear in the screen’s caption.

FS Letters

This program goes through all the filenames from every user (it is made for Macintosh), checks the filename and counts the individual letters. Those letters are then displayed on the screen, the most common ones big and bright and the least common ones dark and small. The letters will appear in a random order.

How to use

If you start the program, a black screen will appear. Press ‘space’ and the screen will get red and begin to fade. After the screen is faded out, it gets black and the program freezes (checks your whole filesystem). After this freeze the above mentioned happens (check images below).
