wrt, short for WRiting Tool, is the utility used to render this site to HTML. I first wrote some version of it in early or mid 2001, probably as a shell script and then as basic Perl CGI. For most of its life it was called Display.pm and before that display.pl; I’ve included posts in this topic that discuss any version of the code.

It can be found:

If you’re running a system with Perl installed, you can probably install it with:

$ cpanm App::WRT


$ cpan -i App::WRT

It may run on other Unixes, but is likely to contain lurking GNU/Linux-specific assumptions. All I know for sure is that it will probably work on most recent Debian-like distros.
