Updated 05-26-2015 at 07:11 PM by rainbowsally (clarification)

May 25, 2015: This project is not dead (yet). We're on out third hack doing this having taken several wrong turns as far as which tags actually need to be written out as code and which can be included as comments (like custom tags).

But as an addendum, I'd like to add, that if this works (at all) it will be useful for seeing how to write a gtk application by hand by outputting working code for whichever tags it ends up handling correctly. And for those it doesn't handle correctly...

GTK Resource Compilation.

There's a utility called 'glib-compile-resources' that takes an xml file that is basically a list of resources such as glade ui files, and it outputs c code to embed the data in the application. It's messy to use, but it works.

There may be another messy gtk/glib utility to create these xml files that 'glib-compile-resources' can use, but if there is here's another one that may or may not be easier to use.

When you want to pack up a bunch of folders by name that live in a windows partition, there's a great likelihoold that spaces in the paths could cause a normal shell program to mis-parse the file names.

Runc uses C/C++ and the built-in slist functions...

A C/C++ SCRIPT to change symlinks to url links.

Posted 09-08-2013 at 03:05 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-08-2013 at 03:28 PM by rainbowsally

Today's feature:
  • A C/C++ utility (script if you have runc-rs) to change symlinks to url files.

[Requires runc-rs or at least librunc.a from runc-rs.
Doesn't require mint to work, nor even a deb derivative.]

This experiment today is significantly less ambitious than the deb repository builder thingy in the previous blog entry and is again a nice intro to C/C++...

I took kubuntu for a spin (installed on an old computer) to see if I could convert it to mint after kubuntu was installed. The kubuntu installer was a little better.. by a mainingful notch, at least for the...
