18 Jan 2001 elj   » (Journeyer)

Published elj-daily for the 19 Jan 2000 (realised I had been doing this for three years - I guess it has been worth it?)

Dabbled with TinyPTC after seeing a comp.compilers.lcc posting (I use lcc-win32 as the backend C compiler for elj-win32).

Decided to hack a SmallEiffel interface to the TinyPTC api (three C functions - open, update, close) which resulted in posting a message to the SmallEiffel Mailing List - I used the C_InlineWithoutCurrent external feature and c_inline_c function as these are being used in the second phase of the eljwin32all project. It has been suggested that SDL would be a better approach than TinyPTC. Jan already has an Eiffel interface to SDL called jegl - must post this back to the SmallEiffel list (actually just found this old post)

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
