I'm programmer, and I'd like to use same work flow for CAD also.
Varkon is in theory perfect CAD for programmer, but unfortunately only in theory.
Normally I write code, and run compiler, and test does it work.
For Varkon, I have to use mouse enormous amounts:
- Open part, several mouse clicks
- Press MBS, editor opens. Edit & close.
- Get dialog saying 'compilation error', press 'y'-button for editing again
- Repeat until compilation goes ok. Click 'close' for all dialogs showing compilation errors (whole stack of them)
- All comments are lost from files, so no sense of commenting lines out, varkon deletes them?
My wrist can't take that amount of mouse usage!
I would prefer:
- All MBS files are all the time on disk in source format available so I can edit them
- Run 'make' or what ever command which runs in terminal, producing errors like c-compiler so that my
xemacs can parse them, and knows 'error is on file brokenpart.mbs line 57' and shows me that file.
- When compilation goes ok, pressing some 'refresh' button on varkon UI would show what kind of thing my code resulted.
Would this be possible? Any instructions for this?
It is possible to use varkon in a way similar to what you describe with help of makefiles that uses the mbsc compiler. I am doing so myself for some projects. I will put together an example of this, it may hovever not be possible for med to do this week.
Ok, I can compile MBS files, create makefile, no problem with that.
Do I have to set project up with varkon UI?
