Re: NeXT at the Olympics

OMG I started a flamewar!

I don't care if Mac OS/X is a "real" Unix. Unix is not the holy grail. As long as I can use
all that Posix-stuff and do "./configure, make, make install", it's Unix enough for me.

The Cube-Demo I made some years ago is still online. There is also a 3DS-Model
of the cube.

Re: Passing a multi-dimensional array to a function in C

When you call "changeInt(myint)", a copy of myint is made.
When you call "void changeArray(array)" a pointer to array is passed to the function.

That's why the content of the array is changed.

Re: uint64_t support

What if I'm building a kernel module using uint64_t in a Fuel/Irix 6.5.30? It's compatible backwards to, maybe O2 with 6.5.x?? Would it run on this machine? Will be binary compatibility at kernel/driver level? Thanks in advance guys I have no experience with building kernel modules. Are you buildin...

Re: uint64_t support

Hi all!! Is this data type uint64_t supported in O2, and previous SGI machines? I'm trying to so something portable across SGI machines, but I´m not sure if this is supported in old machines. Thanks in advance, guys!! If uint64_t is supported depends on the compiler, not on the machine. If you use ...

Re: Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G

Any experiencies? Want to buy it as an X-mas gift but am unsure (€ 160.00). I only read books etc. on my iPad. A friend of mine has a kindle (without keyboard). It's much better for reading books than the iPad. Because of the passive display, you can read even in the brightest sun and the letters a...

But it looks like something designed by kindergarteners for kindergarteners So if "cross-platform" means everyone is reduced to a five-year-old, QT gets the nod :D



You never used Qt, right?
We use Qt for large cross-plattform-projects and it works great.

Re: GUI development for cross platform

wxWidgets ;-) Used it in the past. Start-up company, no money, QT was still commercial. It was a nightmare. Implementation was inconsistent or even incomplete across platforms. We use QT where I work now. It works very well. The last QT version supported on IRIX is 4.5. I don't like wxWidgets too. ...

Re: iMac?

Although I've been for 30 years always on the IBM side, I now contemplate to get me an iMac as well. What would you recommend? Please, no beginners stuff :-) It should really be up to date - I most certainly don't want to replace it next year [but then again, my PS/2 still creeps along fine - not s...
