GUI coding: First Stop QT4

Posted 04-18-2012 at 02:55 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-18-2012 at 02:57 PM by rainbowsally (misspelled title)

First of all, let me say that I've needed a widget that acts like a terminal -- like forever -- and I've checked out a LOT of toolkits having various degrees of success with each.

Perhaps oddly, tk was the best. QT4 was the worst. I subclassed a text editor widget and YOW! was it ever slow!! But I think we'll give QT another look and this is why.

I've checked out many toolkits including
  • tcl/tk (and variants)
  • xclass and xforms and it's descendants
  • fltk v 1.x
  • fltk

New versions links (mc2, libLQ, new-make)

Posted 04-16-2012 at 08:46 PM by rainbowsally

Latest mc2 (automatic makefile creator) and libLQ (our first library) are here.

For the Computer Mad Scientists, you might find uncmake/uncmakefile Usr2usr, and the make-based binary package installer uninstaller utilities interesting as well.

Uncmake latest will be posted here:

UsR2usr (libLQ version)

Posted 04-15-2012 at 04:42 PM by rainbowsally

Here's UsR2usr version 1.5 (using libLQ)

file: src/Usr2usr.cpp
purpose: allows dummy installations and renaming of paths and rpaths for creating binary installations without committing to overwriting original files until you're ready.
Code:
// UsR2usr.cpp

#include <stdio.h>        // printf, sprintf, etc.
#include <stdlib.h>       // exit()
#include <unistd.h>       // tons of stuff
#include <malloc.h>

[See also UsR2usr for creating binary trees without committing to a full install until you can test the installation with this or any other package installer.

Bug Fix: Apr 24, 2012
[Corrected file names in the main executable. Ouch!]
