|Title:||Extra version string system|
Invent a way to embed an extra, non amiga version strings into programs and create a tool to extract it.
|Title:||Alpha 3 ready with a downloadable file|
|Text:||I made some more progress today and as a result Alpha 3 is ready and available to download on [View Files] tab/link of this project ([View Project]).
Remember this is an Alpha version meaning it is not deeply tested and has a lot of things that doesn't work yet like all options and deep error checking.
But if a proper Extversion cookie has been place in a file like:
"�$EXTVER: programname version.revision (dd.mm.yyyy) comment�"
(with leading and trailing zero character, � is a zero character)
it will find it with this command from shell like:
1> extversion programname
programname version.revision (dd.mm.yyyy) comment
So what is left (except fixing bugs):
* implement some options
* more error checking
* tidy up the code (to meet some guidelines and make a few more code comments)
* finish the documentation
* possibly a simple installer
* etc etc.
Hint: You can test the extversion file on itself, it has the EXTVER tag, like:
1> extversion extversion
