DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.


I believe I will switch to HTML for my blog format and then have each day be in its own HTML file. A bit more bloated for documentation with HTML compared to LaTeX, but HTML is painful but more common to parse compared to some archiac LaTeX stuff. Also for my documentation groups I am probably going to use Compiled HTML Help files, a format by Microsoft but it condenses all the files and provides searching and indexing in the format so it has its benefits. Being a single file means it will be easier to copy the entire set of documentation as it would not be exploded on the disk storage area. The standard format is LZX compressed similar to CAB files and I do not know how good it is compared to GZip/Deflate. I can also include all the API documentation in the CHM also so that has an added bonus.


Also the blog being many different files will probably be better for finding what belongs to what rather than going through a gigantic file and such to see what was on my mind.


Also things were getting insane, eventually I would have a 10,000 line LaTeX file.


Seeing that properties in a device tree are just names and byte values I can just skip using that class and just use DeviceNode directly to represent the tree.
