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 am going to have to fix DependencyWalker. Say if a package depends on a package and a dependency also depends on that dependency. So the tree looks like
. A . / \ . B C . / \ . C D
The current code outputs this given tree:
. A . / \ . B C . / . D
When it should output instead
. A . / . B . / \ . C D
Seeing that this is a tree structure, this should not be hard to correct as I can find the existing node above the point and put it to the left of tree at dthe current level.
I know how I can quickly determine the child position like place of a node.
I can have a range of values between
Integer.MAX_VALUE. The root node
will start with a full range. Each child will then get a slice of that range.
One thing though is that children values need to be unique, so the parent node must be +n of the child index node if there are child nodes. So a recursive solution so to speak.
I could also use Long and probably never have to worry about an insane amount of dependencies if a 32-bit value is ever exceeded.
Given the above tree, this will be as followed (note that I am using 256 because it is good enough for this small tree):
. A . (1-127) (128-256) . / \ . B C1 . / \ .(0-63) (64-127) . C2 D
So this results in:
- A: Root
- B: 1
- C1: 256
- C2: 128
- D: 64
This might be just over-engineering things. I just need a compare to determine if one node is to the left of, is the same, or to the right of another node. Note that parent nodes are always to the right of child nodes.
So what I have is this:
[SEVERE] TODO -- Handle node repeat. [SEVERE] [ firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com) , firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com) ] [FINE] firstname.lastname@example.org + email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) ++ email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) ++ email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) + email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org)
No fixing up is done yet however.
Since left most dependencies are added depth first, that is the tree builds like so:
. A . / \ . B C
Then the next step:
. A . / \ . B C . / \ . C D
Then followed by:
. A . / \ . B C . / \ / \ . C D E F
I can just unlink the node elsewhere which should work.
It is possible for packages in the package manager to depend on older versions
of themselves. Say if I support Java 9, I can have
email@example.com. I would however have to slightly modify the version
stuff so it can detect such major versions or have just a higher version
number match of sorts. That is accept
1.8.20151208 and say
Seems after refactoring, the hairball building code is much easier used.
Implemented running of packages again. Now I must handle the meta hairball construction which is needed by the PowerPC architecture definition code.
I must implement the short circuit check so dates for packages are not checked over and over again.
Looks like NetHack 3.6.0 is out since yesterday, rather interesting. Eventually though I will have to try to get nethack running on my OS once it gets far enough. Note that such a thing will require a C compiler.
I am going to need a memory access type for fields to determine if their volatile nature is known at compile time or not. Alternatively, if it is not known then it can just default to volatile (say for fields in another class). That would probably be best.
