Sedoric directories

Post by Symoon » Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:40 pm

I just realised I never released on the Internet my demo of Sedoric directories.
Old and unfinished, but there it is.

It could have been ;)
But as many know, having a demo is rather easy, then most of the work is turning it into a nicely shaped finished product.
I needed many things to do so:
- finding how to present it (on its way with the "*" indicating a directory... But displaying the path would be quite a complicated story)
- writing or modifying all kind of commands to manage files from one directory to another, delete a complete directory, ...
- to do this, finding exactly how much room left there is in the kernel (almost none)
- to do this, update the docs with the latest patches upgrading Sedoric
- understanding how to write new commands in Sedoric (adding banks probably)
...

I'd have loved to do this but it would require me stopping doing anything else for a while, and I know I'm not able to do that! ;) (still admiring the concentration ability and efficience of our Oric programming masters)

What about putting all the source code and documentation on the SVN repository?

So to speak, there is no source code, except machine code written on paper ;-) (I never learnt assembler)
That being said, I think I wrote articles describing it in detail in the CEO Mag. Thing is I worked on it again in 2004, fixing things, and never wrote much on it IIRC... Complicated thing again: I wrote pathes for Sedoric, so I'd have to document the patch, and its implementation (how it's changing Sedoric kernnel)
So in brief: I'd have to update and clean all this up a little before, then learning how to access to a SVN server (and making room on my hard drive before I guess, 400MB left makes it hard installing anything new ;-))

(as you can see, I don't spend much time managing things proprely ;-))
