"Telling a programmer there's already a library to do X is like telling a songwriter there's already a song about love"

-- Pete Cordell

@fribbledom Strongly disagree. A good C library to parse midi files only needs to be written once.

Sadly, C libraries aren't exactly written well enough and need to be done several times before someone finally gets it right.


Sounds like you're strongly disagreeing with your disagreement 😄


@fribbledom Songs about love are different though. It's complicated and can be viewed from many perspectives, relationships aren't all the same, and songs can be written throughout any stage of the relationship.

Songs about love are a goldmine.

A midi parser software library that actually works and actually has decent documentation only needs to be written once. Also yeah, I know it's impossible to find software with decent docs, but it can still be done.
