The ds/lib filesystem
« on: April 19, 2007, 04:58:54 am »
I've been trying for quite a long time now to understand the structure of ds/lib. I've read the FAQ where it explains what's in every directory, which has helped some. I've read all several times, but the intermediate LPC docs, and I feel that some kind of structural explanation would really be clarifying for many people.

I think that a simple explanation of the ds filesystem would be great, what were the intentions behind the structure of the library (like the structure of UNIX and Windows filesystems). That way we could know, for example, what's the difference between include and secure/include, and similar.

I know this must be evident to coders, but I think it's a serious obstacle to the rest of us.

Thank you.

There was a wonderful post here

If you are impatient you could just click here

Information maybe slightly out of date, would be great if we could get a new version of this created ?

 8) Awesome! Now I know for sure I'll never understand it  :'(

I wonder what are the mental tools necessary to understand such big constructs. I'd really, really love to know.

Thank you.

Broken Doxygen Links here as well; commenting mainly for future browsers of these threads.  I think the other Dox thread is the better one for posting any updated URLs to.
