BeOS & Derivatives "It looks like the Haiku Webkit port initiated by Ryan Leavengood has entered a productive second stage of development, and thanks to the recent work by one of the new project team members, Andrea 'xeD' Anzani, tangible progress has been made as shown by the recent screenshot showing the HaikuLauncher application rendering I was curious about his work, so I went directly to the source and asked a few questions to Andrea; here are his answers." On a related note, Haiku now has a new nightly build archive.

RE[2]: can't wait

Member since:

When I said LoseThos has links in source code. They are local file links which can be entered by naming a source code symbol (or naming a file or string in a file or an anchor in a file). If you need to document a reference to a function or symbol, you hit CTRL-L, select "link" and enter the symbol name. Then, you have a link which others can click to go there.

I did a physics program and drew a little vector graphic right in the source code to help document. It handles superscripts and subscripts. Everything goes in one file, so you don't have annoying little graphic files. You can output the graphics during run-time, too -- no separate resource files.

Imagine source code being a Word document instead of ASCII. Does Word support file links... I don't know.

Everything uses the same document format -- the command line supports links, graphics, trees, macros... the menu system does, forms do, the help system does, the clip-board. It's seamlessly integrated.
