Follow-up Comment #10, patch #4739 (project freeciv): Getting further off-topic, but I suspect that we can avoid a lot of the pain involved with freeciv-ruledit if we are careful to make ruleset format changes backwards-compatible (so freeciv-ruledit can read the old format, and write the new one). Also, if we can convince freeciv-ruledit to format things nicely and write all the comments, the cost of having used it should be significantly reduced.
To me, the former is mostly about using RS_DEFAULT_foo more; removing all the magic numbers; providing warnings, rather than errors, on missing information; and striving for programmatic means to generate more complex metastructures (e.g. conversion from explicit singular dependency to reqs, use of extras structures). The latter is just a matter of tweaking rulesave: I'm unsure whether this should be done by injecting the comments into the code, or using a template: perhaps a combination of the two. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?4739> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
