lqMiniTerm (version 2)

Posted 06-15-2013 at 10:07 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 08-06-2014 at 08:18 AM by rainbowsally

Today's Feature
  • A new version of the lqMiniTerm (introduced in the horrible sockets experiments). :-) (If you missed those, count yourself lucky. ;-) )

Unfortunately, for the GUI stuff the file sets are getting rather large. It's only 12K as a gzipped tar but uncompressed it's big enough to make the blog choke, even as an sfxz compressed self extractor.

But it's worth taking a peek at this because there are a few features in it that work (that's important... that it works,...

More simple C and color mixing tests

Posted 06-11-2013 at 01:30 AM by rainbowsally

Today's Feature
  • Here's another pixel (color) mixing toy. The best yet.

Back a couple of blog pages
we were playing with color mixing and data clamping and all kinds of junk including comparing routines to mix colors by a floating point ratio.

This is mixcolors.c - named the same as the other version we were playing with and...

uitool stand-alone version (2013-06-10).

uitool stand-alone version (2013-06-10).

My apologies, previous versions had hidden lq-qt/mc2 lib dependencies. So I took the time to assemble only the needed functions into a lib include file, hiding my mc2 installation to make sure it didn't link by accident, and voila!

This is only a preview, but it's a stand alone app and it's full-featured as of this writing. This one truly has no mc2 dependencies.

In the test folder, the command:

Another Dopey Calculator

Today's feature
  • Another dopey calculator

First a bit of news re. the lq libs and mc2. (mc2 is the makefile creator developed here at this blog.)

The latest version of mc2 is undergoing testing and with any luck will include a SNAZZY set of graphics routines. The uitool is very nice for quickly writing moc files ui headers, etc. Currently some of the built-ins are a bit clunky, but they are effective and easy to use, such as the...

Incremental backup using diff for BIG projects

Note: This blog entry will to go away soon. Another version is in the works.

Note also that having the entire files rather than just a code snippet like a patch makes it easy see as much context as you need in order to recreate a change log by looking at ONLY the files that were changed from one build to another.

KDE's 'kompare' is an excellent utility for viewing changes.

So for now, since this is a little buggy (not serious but needs tweeking), consider...
