General Software Discussion / Re: Scripting vs. Programming
« on: December 09, 2009, 03:13 PM »
The norms being that the term "scripting" suggests quick or brief coding.
This is the first time I actually hear this definition. Quick coding is Q&D.  :D
You can as well develop a C++ application quickly.

So what about application scripting then? Is it "application programming" for you?

scripting and programming are the same thing
Depends. A script (the result of scripting) is not necessarily a program (the result of programming).

(Besides, there's still application scripting, like Vim or Irssi scripts. Try to program these.)

Living Room / Re: Death in Family
« on: December 08, 2009, 03:40 PM »
It is irefutable that urbanization has, does and will degrade human relationships by ever-expanding usurpation of the capacity of individuals (neighbors) to provide what others need through public "services;" thereby destroying the womb of community adhesion.
My actual intent was the global mourning culture. If someone dies, it's on the TV and in every paper and "the world" is so sad and everything without even knowing the dead person. This is not actually the way a thing like sympathy should work IMO, and it is a disgusting evolution forced by begging-for-more-audience media, so over all the years I got a sane reluctance against mentioning death in public forums. I even think it is not O.K. to hold public obsequies for people like Michael Jackson, but this is another point...

But you are right: I am (relatively) new to this board, so I don't know much about people's relationships here. So if we are all real friends, it is alright for me and I'll do my best to become a part of them. But all that... stuff made me somewhat immune here.

I'm sorry.

I wouldn't call an anonymous board "my friends". Maybe some of us are. But death is usually not a topic for public discussions, is it?
Personal grief is not made for gathering replies.
You see, that's just my POV. No offense intended.

Hm, mplayer.

For those who need "a bit" of GUI flavor: MPC-HC with ffdshow filters.
VLC's codecs are not made for playing local files.

Hm, I find it quite impious to state something about death in your own family in a public board.

So for me it's back to vim and its sessions feature, which is all I need for now.
Vim is all a coder needs.  :Thmbsup:

What makes this better than MediaCoder?

General Software Discussion / Re: Text editor with filtering of lines
« on: December 01, 2009, 05:03 AM »
You know I'm beginning to think that all feature rich applications should have a built-in command line that matches and shows features.
Mostly they do.

I doubt that THE is easier to use than Vim.

I have gVimPortable installed, and i fired it up, loaded a file, and then i'm lost. Do you have any specific directions?
1) There is a "vimtutor". Use it wisely.
2) There is a help function, call it via :help <term>...

AFAICS Vim does not feature a built-in filter but it works with grep etc. (while I hope I'm just wrong as Vim features anything).
You could however use expression-based foldering which does not actually hide unwanted lines but folds them.
However, that would require basic understanding of Vim's regular expression syntax.

Thanks Mouser  8) trying FARR for a couple of days now as a Windows-Run replacement. So far it does the job quite well.  :-*

Developer's Corner / Re: Wanted: Comparison of code beautifiers
« on: November 20, 2009, 02:52 PM »
For that I'd recommend the UniversalIndentGUI which is actually free:

http://universalindent.sourceforge.net

It includes a bunch of code beautifiers but doesn't actually compare them...

I saw this and already bookmarked it, but that doesn't give me my classic taskbar back, does it?

OK, I will see if it does anything I might find useful ...  :P

I've been using that since Win '95. And I'm starting to become an old guy.  ;D

I prefer the classic start menu.

Maybe you can replicate it, but what is the deeper sense of all that new stuff if you just want to emulate the old stuff with it?
(No, I'll stick with XP and Vista for now ...)

True Launch Bar ... yay, payware. But thanks.

All these launchers ...

I have different ways to start applications. A few basic ones are in my Autoruns anyway, Thunderbird and Firefox are launched via the Quickstart bar (another reason why 7 sucks, it doesn't even have one), Vim, SFK and FAR are launched from ConsoleĀ² (which resides on Ctrl-Alt-Space), eMule and Gamers.IRC are usually started from Win+R and the left ones are somewhere in my start menu as I rarely need them...

No, I don't have an actual concept for this. I just got used to work this way.

James Gosling? That guy desecrated Emacs, so I basically like him.  :P

"Hidden pointers" are no pointers.

« on: November 17, 2009, 10:02 AM »
Because pointers were found to be confusing and usually leads to computer crash if misused...
Have you ever worked with them? Maybe they are confusing, but very useful at times.

It seems that you are talking about destructors...
Not necessarily, delete works anywhere...
