So you are using the dig GUI toolkit for the dig-dug interface?

I think that's the case. Dig's source is available and it's licensed as Public Domain, so that seems like a good choice.

I just realized I can view the source through SVN's web interface:
http://svn.dsource.org/svn/projects/digdug/

Part of the code also appears to rely on a port of the Windows headers (my guess it it's Y. Tomino's version).

The code is available for perusing? Nice!

As for using dig, that's great. I've always admired how dig was put together. And you guys seem to be keeping it up to date and working with the latest dmd releases. The only drawback is that it's currently stuck to the windows platform. But since dig-dug seems to be windows-centric too, I guess that's no big deal.

Nice work,

John

I'm finding dig quite ugly to work with. The code is mostly very nice (easy to use) but it's missing alot of things. I just don't think a nice interface for the ddug can be created with it.

For example it doesn't have any tab controls.

(personally I've only been using dig's openGL side of things before this).

That's too bad.

I don't think DWT is ready yet. Wink

Have you considered Windy? I don't know if it supports tabs yet, but I'd bet it's easier to expand than dig.

Well, I was referring to the actual ease of coding. As you say, it seems quite limited in features and interface elements. The demos didn't show a whole lot of exceptional interface examples. But if we could have beauty of the code along with a featureful widget set, it would be great.

Oh yes, that is an important widget. I can't really imagine being without tabs.

That does appear to be dig's strongest merit. But, I guess that's no help in this project Smile.

And no, DWT is not ready for primetime...yet. Smile

Well we've gotten to about the first release. We added the Backtrace that reports Module, Class, Function, File and line number, along with register dump, and handling exception break points. To but a break in your code ( for now ) youll have to use DebugBreak() in your code, and re-compile.

Should be released in a day or so.

Sounds great!

That's good enough for me. I've been sprinkling printf's in my code.

The sooner, the better. Very Happy
