Hi All,

Is there any plan of making webkit render pages incrementally for  
better performance?


WebKit does render incrementally, although normally pending scripts  
block parsing and pending stylesheets block layout and painting until  
a significant timeout has passed, to prevent showing incorrect content.


I'm not sure what you mean by better performance but in general,  
rendering more often will make the total page load take longer,  
although it may be able to render for the first time sooner.

Thanks,
Ankush.

Re: [webkit-dev] whats bidi stand for?

That sounds like one vote for renaming that file.   
BidirectionalTextLayout.cpp :)


Or maybe BidirectionalWordSorting or similar.  Mitz and Hyatt are  
two of very few to ever have hacked on that file.


bidi is a pretty common term of art. Also, the code in the file does  
more than just bidi handling, so LineLayout.cpp as Hyatt suggested may  
be the best name. I don't think BidirectionalWordSorting would be  
right - bidi applies at boundaries between right-to-left and left-to- 
right text, which are not directly related to word boundaries.

Maciej

Hi Bin.

Bin Chen:
 I am reading the source code of webkit right now, I find a file name
 like bidi, I can't know the exact meaning, can you tell me whats  
this

 stand for?

Bidi is an abbreviation for bidirectional text, and refers to  
blocks

of text that use both left-to-right and right-to-left scripts (e.g. a
paragraph with English text that also includes some Arabic text).

[webkit-dev] split webkit library to smaller ones

2008-02-03 Thread Bin Chen
Hello,

I am compiling the webkit for MIPS, and in the finally stage to
product the GTK port library, it errors about the GOT overflow.
After google I see its because the object file is too large that one
GOT can't fill. Although my toolchain is quite new(GCC 4.1.2, binutils
2.17) it still can't successfully link. I know I can't expect I can
solve the problem in webkit side, but I suggest webkit dev team to
consider to split the one-large-so to some small DSOs then this should
be make the entire webkit solution more easier to port.

Thanks.
Bin

 FWIW, it builds just fine on MIPS on Debian build daemons with gcc 4.2.

Thanks. Do you know the binutils version?
