You can support garlic development in different ways. Some options are
listed here, sorted by complexity (the simplest one is the first).
Though garlic is a free software, someone has to pay for it. The author
will need strong arguments to ensure support for a program which makes no
money. If you like garlic, support it!
The fact that you use garlic doesn't help much if I don't know that there
is one more user. The easiest way to register is to execute the command:
at garlic prompt. This requires that your machine is connected to the
Internet. A short message will be send to firstname.lastname@example.org; the only
content of this message will be the word 'Hi!'. I will use the header of
this message to extract your address. The address will be added to the list.
Your address will not be abused, it will be kept secret and used only to
count garlic users.
You can also send a more verbose message to
with comments and suggestions.
There is one more way to register garlic: at your shell (terminal) prompt,
(if connected to the Internet, of course).
SEND A POSTCARD
You can also register by sending a postcard. I like stamps!
Here is the address:
Kneza Trpimira 2B
Inform your colleagues and friends about garlic. Many potential users do not
read Usenet news, so it is difficult to reach all those who might be
interested to use garlic. I don't like spam and other aggressive forms
of communication so I wouldn't use such methods to attract users.
ADD LINK TO YOUR WEB PAGES
Add link to your personal web page(s), pointing to garlic.
If you like garlic and you can set aside few megabytes of disk space, you
can establish a mirror site with garlic sources and related material. This
should not be very complicated - there is only one source package and few
dozens of web pages. The national academic network (CARNet) here in Croatia
is pretty good, but communication lines to some countries (like U.K. and
Germany) are overcrowded most of the time.
USE IT FOR LECTURES AND PRESENTATIONS
An experienced user may use garlic for lectures and presentations. There
is a command pau (pause) which makes it easy to control script execution.
MAKE A DONATION
Donations are welcome, of course. Contact the author for technical details
