help with database-design and -maintenance might be appreciated.
I guess a list of object and there relation can be fetched by parsing the code in CVS. The metadata could provide some description but not per object except for the cases where an external only have one object (or
this i don't understand.
I thought that the description was per object, hence not per group of externals. Fx. the metadata for zexy says "swiss army knife for pd". I can't just find one, but there could well be a group of externals with only one object, in which case the description of the group of externals would be the same as the for the that one object. So i most cases manual editing of descriptions would be needed especially if the description is to be per object.
apart from that: personally i am not convinced that the database should be created on the fly from CVS for various reasons: - code would have to follow a certain outline in order to make this work
Ok. I thought that such outline was already established by m_pd.h or "the way" to write externals.
- separation between code and documentation is rather low (coders usually hate to documentate their stuff; so a host of volunteers is needed to do the documentation; they don't necessarily need to interfere with the source-code for this task) - accuracy tends to be low with automated systems
so i think that the database ought to be manually maintained.
Ok. I was just suggesting what i thought would be the easiest way to keep the database accuracy high, since, as you say, coders don't necessarily do the docs - or just might not see the use for a database. That's all.
And thanks for the other answers.
