  Kaptain 0.73


Kaptain is a universal graphical front-end for command line programs. It works on linux/UNIX platforms whereever Qt is available. Release 0.73 is using qmake and is compatible with Qt 4.

Someone writes a simple script (so called grammar) which describes the possible arguments for a command line program and Kaptain brings up a friendly dialog to the user to set up the command line.

Look at some examples below or see the complete documentation for details.

Download from the file release page or directly.

Source distribution: kaptain-0.73.tgz.

Kaptain is successfully used with the EMBOSS package in molecular biology. See Thomas Siegmund's page for details.

A small example illustrates SQL database access from kaptain.
