Zipped sourcecode
« on: August 23, 2009, 11:42:11 PM »
Hello, at https://sourceforge.net/projects/opendcl/files/ the zipped sourcecode cannot be found. Is it planned to use only SVN to get the sourcecode?

With SourceForge now displaying all files en masse when browsing files, I decided to eliminate one file from the list in order to minimize the confusion of downloaders (and to minimize the time I have to wait for uploads to complete). Perhaps once we have our custom download page working, the confusion will be less of a problem and I can reinstate the source file.

Hi Owen,
would it be possible for you to upload the zipped source for 6.0

Thanks

P.S. I think the source should not be eliminated from the downloads, just to have one less file.
IMHO, it's the whole spirit of openDCL and is kind of expected from a place like sourceForge

Hi, Danielm103, I suggest you to use SVN. Using this, you are able to download only the newly changed files to decrease the amount of data to be transferred. And you have the chance to see, what was changed and you can turn back to an earlier release. Only advantages ...  ;)

I only glanced through the SVN, but I only saw the 5.1 tree so I assumed this is not up todate..
I will look again

Hi, velasquez,

To create such a SVN project folder (I call it this way) you have to do the following steps:

- Download TortoiseSVN (it's one of many SVN products) at: http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads and install it.
- Create a folder on you data harddisk
- Rightclick on the folder and select SVN Checkout... from context menu.
- Input the address https://opendcl.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/opendcl/Trunk and select Fully recursive.
- Click OK and wait a while. The first checkout may take you up to 6 minutes until downloading has finished completely.

After a new release has been published you can download the newly changed or created files or delete file which are not neccessary in future.
- Search for your OpenDCL-SVN-folder.
- Rightclick on the folder and select SVN Update from context menu.
- The new files are downloaded now.

You can double click on any changed file in the TortoiseSVN log to see what changed. You can also do it via the SourceForge web interface here (click on the revision at the top to see what changed in that revision):
http://opendcl.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/opendcl/Trunk/

For example, here you can see what changed in PictureBox.cpp:
http://opendcl.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/opendcl/Trunk/Common/PictureBox.cpp?r1=231&r2=230&pathrev=231

Hm, very nice to know, Owen. Thanks. It took me while to figure out which files were updated and what was changed but once I've got it, it seemed to be easy.
