This stupid programmer just did a "git checkout -f" before doing a commit. Lost all progress for today.  WTF No No NO At least I didn't work much today so my grumpy level is "only" high.

make smaller commits dude!  Grin

this will save your ass if you rebase and end up in a world of conflict - also makes things like git bisect more useful

Yea but I was working on one bigger function (Separated axis theorem for collision detection) and didn't really feel like doing a commit in between. Now I regret it...

You could do that? You couldn't even change the way it allowed you to indent and format your code. It was ridiculously strict.

... Or could you?

you could do both of those...


If you had a .pblangspec file for the language you wanted, you popped it it library/xcode/specifications and it all worked fine

But is there no way to change it through the GUI? In the regular settings?

uch ... refactoring work on a (reasonably substantial) project is getting messy ... having to touch pretty much everything ... going to get a lot messier/confusing before it starts getting neater  Sad

how hard is it to download a file and drop it in (what is essentially) the plugins folder?

ATTENTION, PURVEYORS OF OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE:

If you want your code to be cross-platform, you've got a few options:

A) Maintain and provide a bunch of project files for various compilers, and let the user pick which one they want to use based on their platform and dev environment.

B) Use makefiles. They're not everyone's cup of tea, but they work.

Notice how "use some other open source build library" is not an option. Because if you do that, you're retarded. Nobody wants the additional headache of installing, configuring and building SpecialMake or AardvarkMarmaladeConstructor or GQFXKL++2.3 just to get your software to run. Certainly nobody will ever re-use that make system for anything else ever again. Did you ever think about how you build those custom make systems in the first place? They all use either Option A or Option B because THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING. They exist only to annoy. And you know what? If your special make system of choice happens not to build/run/be supported on my platform or in my dev environment, NEITHER DOES YOUR LIBRARY.

Sorry. Had to get that off my chest.

I've booted into Windows to get a MinGW build going so that my partner in crime (who is doing all the art and most of the level design) can actually run the game and level editor. Needless to say, it is turning out to be an incredibly painful experience.

MinGW works fine on non-Windows OSes... I do all my Windows builds on a mac. I've got a link for actual binary installers for os x... Haven't tried putting mingw on linux though. Are there not debian packages somewhere?

Still really weirded out by this thing where

for(var x:int = 0; x < width; x++) {
   idk_whatever(x);
}

x persists outside the loop  Epileptic

how can this be  Epileptic

... There's a bug in SFML for Mac that makes the program crash if I press keys on a Greek or Cyrillic keyboard (and probably other non-Latin ones too)... I posted about it in their forums. We'll see what happens.

Yeah.

Mostly only an issue because I copy and paste a for loop to do something else, and the second time turns into a warning

Not that this really excuses AS3, but this misfeature is copied from Javascript and EcmaScript.

It's not crappiness it's an optimisation because of the platforms on which ECMAScript was meant to run.

Variables are local to function blocks. Not simply anywhere you put curly brackets.

If you consider this in terms of optimisation then there's no garbage collection party until you leave the function block instead of every time you enter or exit a for, while or do loop.

It's a given in ECMAScript that you declare your variables early in your function block and then recycle them. This eases the load on the CPU. It's also standard practice in Javascript.

Of course it fucks with the head of anyone fresh to ECMAScript and gives maintaining devs a nice mess to clean up.

GOLLY I'D SURE HATE TO BE MAINTAINING YOUR CODE

Code:
for(var i:int = 0; i < polys.length; i++){

Code:
for(var i:int = 0; i < clip.numChildren; i++){

Code:
for(var i:int = 0; i < newValue.length; i++) {

LOOK AT THIS MESS IT'S A WONDER ANY NITROME GAMES RUN AT ALL
