`star-platinum` is a key binding manager for x11. It acts primarily
as a translator: the canonical example is to Emacs-ify various
programs by customizing how some key are handled.
Check out the [manpage](star-platinum.1) for more information.
`star-platinum` depends on `xlib` and needs a C compiler, `yacc` and
`lex` to compile. With that in place, it's as easy as
Configuration for the build process can be found in `config.mk`, but
you usually don't need to modify it: passing the variables to make
should be enough. For instance, to build with `gcc`

IIRC, so additional flags may be needed.

Sort of. I was listening to 「sono chi kioku」, the fourth opening,
while I was playing with the idea of translating the key. Given
that I'm generally bad at naming things...
