VS cleanup

Post #1by Paolo » 04.11.2007, 13:01

Why in the CVS tree there are still very very old visual studio prj files?
Why those files are not replaced by the current updated sln files for VS 2005?
Why winlibs are not included in CVS?

PLEASE! Don't say that a decent C++ programmer can get rid of those problems very quickly!!!!

It's simply a mess and a waste of time.

I agree.
- Apparently it's not only C++ programmers who compile Celestia from CVS ...
I like very much being up to date with the development, and it's really easy in principle. :)

There's been discussion of moving to Subversion after 1.5.0 is finalized. That would probably be a good time to clean things up.

I hope so and I hope too that some other file reorganization will take place. e.g. in the src\celestia\ folder that should be something like:

\common
\win
\mac
\gtk
\kde
\glut

Yes, the folders will get reorganized, and the subdivision will be more extensive than just moving the windows UI file into their own directory. Among other things, I'd like to put all the orbit calculation routines into their own module.

Since we are talking about cleanup in general I would like to suggest the adoption of a more complete coding standard like:

http://geosoft.no/development/cppstyle.html

It sould be effective in improving maintainability, portability, readability of code and so in bug fixing too.

Paolo,

Why don't you go ahead and create a wiki page for this topic?
