Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-14) Source documentation, questions to be answered.
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2015 03:53:34 GMT


Dennis E. Hamilton commented on COR-14:

I just ran across some beautiful documentation.  It is for a GUI framework, but it is the
tone, organization, and spirit that appeals to me:

> Source documentation, questions to be answered. 
> ------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: COR-14
>                 URL:
>             Project: Corinthia
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Wiki
>         Environment: wiki,  documentation
>            Reporter: jan iversen
> Writing source documentation is often difficult, because the writer knows it all, so
documentation tends to be in such a detail that outsider dont have a chance of getting the
big lines.
> I have tried to write down the questions I see (based on my experience from e.g. AOO),
and hope they can serve as a part guide line, when writing:
> 1) I want to add a new file format, how do I add my files to the library, and where do
I find documentation about the format I have to convert to/from ?
> 2) I have a formatting problem when converting from docx to odf, where do I start debugging
> 3) I want to add support for presentation files in html/docx/odf, where do I start ?
> 4) I want to port docFormats to freebsd, what must be done ?
> 5) My document contains a .psd file, its not shown correctly in the saved html file,
how do I debug ?
> 6) I want to control memory allocation, how does garbage collection happen ?
> 7) can I have my own memory manager, so I can limit the memory usage ?
> 8) Can I convert docFormats into a dll, what files do I need to change ?
> 9) I want to write a new renderer (qt), which files do I need to change ?
> more to come.
