About the program
RUST is divided into 3 main portions:
the graphical drag and drop front end. Rust is written in C, using GTK+
console rust. The backend to rust, also used for all the sandbox functions.
Crust was written in C++. No, I did not bust out my freaky OO kung foo
style for this one - the program is written pretty much like a procedural
C program. C++ was chosen mainly for the chance to use the STL
containers and the groovy basic string class.
a shell script that makes all the calls to rpm itself.
Normally, users don't ever have to use makeRPM directly.

About the website
Many thanks go out to Helene
Poirier, who did a terrific job designing and integrating the
entire rusthq.com website. I'd also like to thank sourceforge.net
for hosting this and many many other open sourced projects.
Thanks also go out to the scattered difinium.com
gang for many reasons, including being sick of creating RPM SPEC files
