Today Meg and I went to the gym after we discovered that we wouldn't be gaming with friends today - we also got groceries and lots
I spent the rest of the day working on an older project that I started almost a year ago. After realizing that it just doesn't compile with the newer GCC (that was rather irrating to make changes and all of a sudden it doesn't work, but should) AND getting it to (kind of) work with autotools, I set off to do the real work - rewrite data sources into XML from the stupid dinky format that was earlier.
I thought XML was supposed to make things easier. Then again, I thought C++ was supposed to do the same thing. Actually libxml++
isn't that bad, I think its just more a matter of I don't know what I'm doing so I get all these extra results to parse through. Also, there wasn't too much documentation to find on the website or on the web. Surely there's a way to say "return all subchildren of this node WITH A MAX DEPTH OF ONE". Anyway, I ended the day with fewer features than when I started with, but the rest should be easy to insert now. Perhaps if all goes according to plan I'll code drop in a month or two.
This makes two days in a row that I've done something productive.
