Even more Cabal fun, visualising in 3d

avsm pointed me to ubigraph. So after a bit of XML-RPC hacking (haxr really rocks, it is just so amazingly easy to use) I now have code that sends the graph data over to a ubigraph server.

Of course I had to create a video of it. The video shows the dependencies of just two packages (dataenc and datetime). I tried creating a second video of the dependencies of more packages, but xvidcap isn’t very reliable it seems. One irritating thing is that I run out of filehandles fairly soon, so I couldn’t create a 3d graph of more than about 75 packages (all packages starting with ‘a’ and ‘b’ on Hackage).
