Just some tips if you're going to help with xchat code (patches etc):
* Use tabs, not spaces, to indent code.
* Use a tab size of 3 (most editors will let you choose this).
Type :set ts=3 in vim/gvim.
* Try to stick to the same consistant coding style:
if (function (a, b, c))
x = a + 1;
(vertically aligned braces, a space after if, while, functions etc).
* Don't use "//" C++ style comments, some compilers don't like them.
* When opening a file with unix level functions (open, read/write, close)
as opposed to the C-level functions (fopen, fwrite/fread, fclose), use
the OFLAGS macro. This makes sure it'll work on Win32 aswell as unix e.g:
fh = open ("file", OFLAGS | O_RDONLY);
* Use closesocket() for sockets, and close() for normal files.
* Don't read() from sockets, instead use recv().
* Please provide unified format diffs (run diff -u).
* Call your patch something more meaningfull than xchat.diff (I get a
million of these files!).
* To make a really nice and clean patch, do something like this:
Have two directories, unpacked from the original archive:
Then edit/compile the xchat-2.0.0p1 directory. When you're done, make
a patch with:
diff -urN xchat-2.0.0 xchat-2.0.0p1 > xchat-something.diff
If using nmake (Windows) replace "make distclean" with "nmake -f makefile.msc clean"
