Yet another brief Nederlog, as described in the title, and
continuing from yesterday - and by "ME" in the title I mean both me and ME,
as you'll see. But first another assembly related bit - and "assembly" is a
family of programming languages.
1. More WoW
I updated yesterday'sWoW - see my
More and better WoW-quotes - namely by fixing a bug: I had not
assigned enough space to accomodate larger texts, which upset WoW's
Helptext. It should work now (and works in the previous version except that
the author's name in the Helptext gets overwritten with "Enjoy!"
The new version is here: WoW2.zip.
There are further versions planned...
2. Why Assembly is good for ME
I like programming but am not often up to it, what with ME.
But the last days I was relatively - I said: relatively, namely:
compared with my normal average day - OK and used that to do some with
Assembly (follow the
link if you think of gatherings of people: I mean
on a fundamental level) and realized I have the wherewithall to put together
a helpsystem about ME, that can display texts of tens or hundreds of files,
in one executable, that displays them as hypertext, all contained in the
This makes it possible to bundle huge amounts of written
information in one hypertext viewer, and I mean to do so for ME. To
see what I mean, here is a so called 'proof of concept'(*):
This is a base-version for a similar system with a lot more
information, that in this way can be distributed to others. As is, it comes
in a zip-file of 8 Kb that expands to an executable of 25 Kb, that when
clicked pops up a help-system, that is self-explanatory. (It's small because
it is written in assembly. It also contains all the texts it displays.)
I could explain a lot about it, but will not. What matters
is that this is a means that I can use to gather and distribute lots
of information in a single hypertext displaying executable, that may
contain a great amount of interlinked text-files.
If I have sufficient energy and not too much pain I will
soon have a version with information: The present one is mostly a stub, and
a proof of concept(*).
Anyway... you won't miss much by not downloading MEHelp.zip,
but I do intend to expand the version in the zip into a downloadable
executable with lots of interlinked information about ME in that one
(*) A term used by
programmers (and no doubt by others), that when appropriate refers
to the writing of a program that works and shows thereby it can be
extended to a full program fit for a certain task.
P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to
be made later.
