Joey, any luck with Piet Creator?
 
4:36 PM
I thought of an interesting algorithm puzzle that would ease development of piet programs, but I think it is too tough for a puzzle here :(
 
5:09 PM
@Casey Not yet; sorry. Currently more or less sick at home and can't really think properly.
Hm, Windows complains about a wrong side-by-side configuration for some reason on that executable.
@Casey Given that there was a task calling for implementation of Perl Regex, I doubt you can get much more complex :P
 
 
1 hour later…
6:29 PM
@Joey hmm.. I've never published a C++ program on windows before. Was copying the executable+dlls from the Debug directory not sufficient?
I'll have to look into it.
 
 
1 hour later…
7:58 PM
@Casey Does Qt need an installed library like GTK+? My only experience with Qt programs is the Cisco VPN client but that one is rather self-contained.
but if I were to guess I might be missing a runtime ;)
 
8:15 PM
@Joey Ah yea, that is probably it. My windows system has the Qt runtime library installed.
I'll see if i can create a statically linked version or repackage it to include the dlls in the zip file
Man, deploying apps on windows is so complicated :\
 
@Casey Never really had problems with my own ones. Those were mostly .NET so far, though. (Hey, and they even ran on Mono :))
hm, there only appears to exist an SDK. No immediately apparent existence of a runtime client library
 
8:32 PM
@Joey Yea .NET apps are easier to deploy, not so much the unmanaged C++ apps it seems
There's a new zip file that contains the two necessary Qt DLLs
I think it will require the VS debug library installed, which you should have if VS is installed
 
Hm, same error message. It says something about digging deeper with sxstrace. I'll try that now once I figure out how to use it
 
8:54 PM
gah
ok, it's the debug CRT, apparently: ERROR: Cannot resolve reference Microsoft.VC90.DebugCRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e1­8e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8".
version 9 appears to imply VS2008; I have 2010
ok, I think I'll build it myself some day ;)
 
haha
yea i built it with vs 2008
i guess i should create a non-debug release
 
Remind me to never touch C++ in my life :P
 
haha
@Joey release version added to the download page :D
Heh I hope I haven't gotten your expectations up to high :P
 
Why? I'm expecting a fully-functional IDE with code completion, inline help, build system, debugger and more. :P
\o/ it runs!
 
9:13 PM
huzzah
 
Toggle headers does something strange here
 
woah yea... that's not supposed to happen
 
@Joey I could, instead, suggest never touching windows again in your life.
Or would that be unconstructive?
 
Ctrl+N is doubly-assigned.
And resizing to a larger size does not repaint
dmckee: I'd consider that unconstructive, indeed ;-). I'm not unhappy with my working environment, although I admit that many free software zealots would never dare step near it.
 
Particle physics has been a unix world since the much debated and oft lamented transition from VMS in the early ninties.
 
9:21 PM
Resizing to a smaller size could get rid of the warning if the excess that would be dropped is plain white. While it may have an effect on the program it would be nice if the immediate inverse action to resize up would give no warnings.
 
Which makes things simple for me in one way. But makes talking to the actually-getting-paid-for-software world rather harder.
 
Heh, I decided to write a program in Piet for the "find a happy number" question, but first I had to write a program to determine the digits of any integer.. that program is already longer than the current answers :P
1
Q: Find whether a number is happy or not?

fR0DDYA happy number is defined by the following process. Starting with any positive integer, replace the number by the sum of the squares of its digits, and repeat the process until the number equals 1 (where it will stay), or it loops endlessly in a cycle which does not include 1. Those numbers for w...
