A little little more welcome message...
Why do you don't release the HMG IDE source code?
Which are your obscure intentions about it?
IDE is a very big application. It has about 41000 lines of code.
To make it run faster it relies heavily on MiniGUI library internals and
some C code to cover low level things not implemented on the library.
Since it relies on library internals, sometimes, modifications to library, obligate to me to make changes (usually extensive) to IDE code.
IMHO these (and other things) turn this project into a personal one, not suitable to make its code public.
Anyway, I not discard the possibility to make the code public in the future.
I can only assure that IDE will always be FREELY DISTRIBUTED as freeware.
There is no evil intentions behind this decision
Maybe there is a problem (not fully specified) with control XXX
but I'm not sure. Can you fix it please?
My application is not working as expected. I've attached to the message all app 5000 lines of code. I guess that must be an HMG problem, please solve it.
Ok. I'll say once again
I cannot analyze a presunct bug based on a tale about it, or read a
thousand lines app to attempt to find it. It is very time consuming and inefficient way to go.
Please, send me a simple sample showing the bug, to SourceForge HMG bug tracker. The sample must include all necessary files to compile and run it.
If you are not able to reproduce the problem in a small sample, is highly probable that be not an HMG problem, but a error in your app.
Do you accept donations?
In early 2004, the total suscriptors in all MiniGUI forums was more
I've took about three hours a day (sometimes more) to answer all the messages directed to me with help requests.
So, I've think that request for donations from the MiniGUI users could be a good idea. It could allow to me, dedicate full time to the project, filling the needs of those using the library to develop professional apps.
Sadly, with the exception of a small group of users, there was no
Some time later, I've decided to remove donations request from the HMG releases due to the lack of interest from the users.
Based on that experience, I have no plans to do it again.
