Title: The Forum - A break through?
Post by: TomAddis on October 03, 2010, 10:46:23 AM
Hi everyone,

I note we are now through the 500 barrier and at this rate of new members we will be through the 1000 barrier in end of February 2011.  However, not much discussion going on or questions being asked.  So why are you all joining?

Any truthful answers would be appriciated.

Tom

Hi Tom,

I'm just new here so, I thought I would drop in and speak :)
My programming background before was in Assembler, C, Scheme, and recently, D.
I have been working through the book "Drawing Programs" and find it most exciting!
Having done functional programming before (Scheme) I can pick up the ideas very quickly.
All in all, you have done a great job with designing this concept of 'Schematic Programming' and bringing it into realisation with Clarity and Faith. (Pun Intended)  ;)

A few questions:

1) Working through the book, you keep stating that Clarity Lite doesn't use this or that programming functionality , only Clarity Pro does. Does the book (In the parts I haven't read yet) go into the Clarity Pro Environment?

2) We would all like our program to do brilliant things: i.e. open files, manipulate pixels, etc. Does Clarity Pro come with it's own GUI or can I use an Aftermarket one like QT?

Thanks for a great programming environment, in which I can finally put my ideas into code "Easily", and also a great book!
You will be hearing more from me in the future as more questions crop up.

Thanks again.

Hi Starwarp,
Nice to have you on board; welcome.

ClarityLite was written at the request of my students who kept on complaining that there was too much to learn.  So in response we created ClrtityLite that just focused on what I thought were the essential programming concepts.  So many of the simple ideas were delt with in this framework.  However, we wanted the book to go much further and so the later chapters are for ClaritPro only.

ClarityPro has most of the file manipulations (Chapter 8, page275 +) you need,  but pixel manipulation would have to be done via your own functions.  Building your own library extensions are all described (there are three ways of doing it) and this of course goes with GUI (Chapter 9 page 315 +, particularly page 319).  We hope that the extension of ClarityPro will be done by others with different objectives so, at the most extreme, the source (in C) code is available on-line.

There is also the possibility of embeding Clarity/Faith as a function in your own code so anything is possible.

Happy to respond to any questions etc

Have fun and many thanks for your nice words.

Tom

Hi Michel7more,

Welcome and I hope you will enjoy Clarity.  Please feel free to write about your games.  There might be one that could involve using Clarity itself (build yourself out a problem - say?). ;D

All the best

Tom

I have asked people not to use this as a source for free advertising.  You are now banned from future posting.  However if you agree to only use this site for its main purpose - Clarity activities then I will lift the ban.

Regards

Tom
