64-bit utilities (includes mc2-64 bit)

Posted 05-03-2015 at 06:00 PM by rainbowsally
Updated Yesterday at 02:35 PM by rainbowsally (Uninstaller fixed and uploaded, mc2 build bugs fixed)

We'd better tool up. The old mc2 was for 32-bits. There are a few bugs in it but it should work for those needing 32 bit compilation on a 64 bit machine.

[Note: May 4, Found installer bugs in the mc2 src d/load. Path to panic version of mc2 was added so the stuff could update before being installed and pkg-config string replaces individual includes and libs now. Sorry about that. Should work now.]

But today's amazing journey into Mad Computer Science is...

An Experiment: From C Definitions To Templates

An Experiment: From C Definitions To Templates

This is a tangent, but a forgivable one, no?

Today's mind-blowing Mad Computer Science features:
  • An experiment morphing a regular old C style set of functions into a set of C++ templates.
  • We rename a literal parameter type to a template parameter T and voila!
  • This will help demystify the horrible noise in the messy STL templates by making a simple transition from main_1 to main_2, in which error messages from the compiler

An Alternate Glade Build.

Posted 04-25-2015 at 01:03 PM by rainbowsally

An Alternate Glade Build. Yes, this actually pertains to the parser, but nevermind that for now.

Need to build glade with -g3 flags? The Computer Mad Science Team does, and so today's marvelous adventure starts here. [Only needs 'make' and the original glade sources d/load to do it.]

  • An alternate build system generated with Computer Mad Science tools.

Our attempt to use the standard ./configure-make sources to get glade to compile with debug flags...

The C/C++ Parser Generator (v. 2.x)-- Example 3 (MC2 .DEF Parser Parser

[fixed bad link to parser stuff Apr 24, 2015 -rs]

What a bother it is to continually upload Makefiles. Let's let Son Of MC2 do it for us.

Today's Features:
  • A makefile creator to compile and link all files in your SRC directory.
  • Stringing together of C and boolean parser elements (see main())
  • Working with strings, reading values by name from files, and stuff like that.

The BIG download, the low level parser files, are packed up and base64-ed here....

The C/C++ Parser Generator (v. 2.x)-- Example 2 (SuperDOSEX)

Posted 04-22-2015 at 02:31 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-22-2015 at 02:38 PM by rainbowsally

This example/test produces a parser similar to old DOS wildcards.

On the way to Madalay, I met a man with GTK.

What this is all about is testing the parser for a "real" application that will take a glade output file and write the code in C/C++. How far will we get? ;-) Doesn't matter, we can have some fun along the way.

And so...

  • Uses the parser d/load to create an MSDOS-like wildcard matcher/translator
