Hacking

I finaly got a somehow working version of my gtkdoc2doxygen.pl perl script. I have then converted the gtk-doc style comments of MlView into doxygen style comments. The extracted documentation is available here. I still need to achieve a _huge_ amount of work on it to make the documentation complete. Oh my, that's boring no end but very usefull if i want other programmers to understand and reuse the code... busy coming weeks

Misc

If you are a software dev manager and you are planning to buy a software versioning system, STAY AWAY FROM CLEARCASE . This product is _really_ a piece of crap written by true wimps. It is damn bloated, unstable (when it hang, it is likely to totally hand your system), needs an army of administrators out there to make it run and last but not least, it heavily relies on your network to work properly. On unix, they have a crappy merge tool that you are _obliged_ to use ... (yeah, back to stalinism).

You would better ask you developpers to know what tool they prefer before spending that much money into such a dollar sink. One think is sure : don't listen to clearcase sales people. Ask your programmers instead. If they don't know clearcase, they should stay away from it.
