Monster Browser 0.9c is released

Postby torhu » Mon Jul 06, 2015 2:21 am

Since I've made some minor fixes, I'm making a release :twisted:

Version 0.9c adds support for Reaction (rq3.com), and fixes Urban Terror 4.2 support. And as always, an updated IP database is included.

Nice to hear about this project getting updated after Google code's migration. 8)

May I ask you out of curiosity, why D as a programming language? I've tried it in a small hacky parser for my introduction to database course and got a clean impression out of it. Is it the same with larger application like Monster Browser? I particularly like the idea that it compiles in native code than requiring it to be executed through a VM like java bytecode.

Have a nice summer torhu as well :wink:

D is pretty nice, at least the D 1.0 language that I used was. The language on dlang.org is D 2.0, which is more complicated. If I were to start another GUI program project, I would probably use C++. D's weak library support is limiting.

Oh, so it's D 1.0 used here, I didn't know that.

Let me grin after you told that D is now more complicated, but you would switch to C++ :-)
It is understandable in a way since there are a lot of already built libraries for it (Qt, GTK and such).

Agreed about the D library weakness, it is not a well known language and does have only the standard library to be widely used and tested. There are a lot of stuffs in there, even a CSV parser (very useful for me when I tried it for my database course).
But when I compare to, say Java's standard packages, D is way more clean, well thought, generic and does not have rusty corners all over the place.

One thing I have to complain about D is their compiler. The official dmd compiler is not under a free licence, and the other compilers (built on top of gcc or llvm) are often reporting different compilers errors on other machines. My parser was compiling fine with ldc on my Linux machine. But when I gave this to a friend on Windows, he could not even compile the code using dmd. I was quite surprised about it.

Thanks Tor.
One of these days, we'll have to coordinate a time to play together again. Like old times. :twisted:
