music icon


MocIcon is a simple Music On Console tray icon. Inspired originally by Moc-Tray, I decided to write this in C because Perl isn't as light language as C and is not really suited for lightweight desktop usage. It is written using the GTK+ toolkit and has a very small compile size (under 100 lines of code). I am trying to keep the memory usage down but the icons + GTK use almost almost all of it.
