Another thing about VMMakerTool: How can you work on one plugin (as an example) and create c code for that one plugin without deleting all of the other plugin dirs?
Easy - use the context menu in the external plugins list to generate just that one plugin. Unless I've broken it recently (always some possibility) that is the way to generate your single plugin so that you can cycle round generate-compile-test(since it autoloads)-unload (with SmalltalkImage current unloadModule:'myPlugin')-rinse-and-repeat
oh.. THATS what that is! Ok, that works!
I'm using the VMM38b branch and there are many plugin directories. But, if you drag over just one plugin and generate in VMMakerTool, it blows away all the others.
Yah. It's a tricky problem of interlocks that reflects trying to make a bunch of opinionated people happy some years ago. I think the help text could do with a little more explanation.
Yeah.. maybe a clearer note. Now I know what "list" means in this sentence: "You can also generate internal or external plugins singly, using the menus in the lists"
I'll tell you that the "Clean Out" button is a dangerous button. Hit that accidentally and BAM your code is gone.
thanks for your help, Tim.
Now.. .working on getting config/configure to really configure all of this. I can't get it to find things. When I get one thing pointed right, it negates another. I'm going around in circle ;-)
