Subject Re: [RT] Ideas on getting the entire test suite for the sdk to run in 10 minutes or less
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2012 19:48:53 GMT
Given that mustella compiles swfs before running them, perhaps if we added
a compile-time / post-compile-time step that replaced calls to trace() with
a logging utility call, we could do that instead?  We'd have to re-write
the bit that checks the flashlog.txt to use something else, but that would
also mean that people wouldn't have to make a mm.cfg file on their
computers anymore as well.  Even ErrorReportingEnable could go away with
the new global exception handlers.

Is possible to replace calls to trace() to that logging method with
something like as3-commons-bytecode or perhaps a tweak to mxmlc?  If it's a
simpler fix, we could just change all the code to call that method
directly.  Find and replace for the win?
