Recently I've been discussing Unix humor with a friend and we got to the topic of the sl command. I got the sources, compiled, installed on our development machine, and... got rather disappointed. The "official version" shows just the engine, with option to expand it to two cars.

I remember a version from a machine I had a couple years ago, that had a road crossing with barriers, a very long train, and dozens of options.

Where can I find that extended version?


When I installed sl in my ubuntu box (apt-get install sl) I got the binary /usr/games/sl-h too. This is the version you are looking for. You can probably get the sources from the ubuntu packages pages (take a look here: http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/s/sl/ ).
