And well, you know...more coders wouldn't hurt either. ;-)
agreed - don't know Linux, don't know C++, don't know Ruby, very light on bash scripting, have never coded anything substantial, last I coded anything outside scripting was 15 years ago on my old home computer in a "non-real" language, only thing recently was a few small VBScripts (and that is my only exposure to OOP!) But I really hope to get to the point where I can do something - problem is its such a steep learning curve before anything useful comes out the other end
Don't even know where to start, really! I have downloaded the source, and started compiling but killed it half way through cos something spooked me in the messages! Just wish I could leap frog the dev env setup bit so that I could just start tinkering with the code a bit, as I could probably infer most of what I need to make some basic changes... oh well, one day
That's a point - am I right in assuming that I don't actually have to have a full dev env to play with it, but just get the sources and compile individual files then replace the binaries? hmm... that's right, I remember now, the problem then is dependancies, and alsorts of other stuff I don't understand. Damn!
