Title: Code documentation
Post by: Gil on January 18, 2003, 07:40:30 pm
Hello
I'm new to this project and I just downloaded the (huge) soruce code.
I can't really make out much out of it.
Is there some documentation somewhere that I can read, so I'll have a general idea about the code's structure?
Thank you for helping.
Please feel free to email me  :)

hehe...yeah that  would be nice wouldn't it?

there is a it of documentation in the /doc directory, but  not too much,  and it isn't useful for getting the hang of the code.

My recomendationn would be to choose somethiing specific to look at, and figure outhow that art works.  Getting a 'big picture' will not be an easy task.  better to focus on one part.  If you have explicit questions, feel free to ask here (or go on over to the IRC channel), but as far as the general flow of the program, that isn't so simple.

Keep in mind that the code is massively threaded, whch can make it a bittricky to figure out whatis going on.

Good Luck.
