7:15 PM RPath Lives!


The question is, can you figure out what the expression above does? If so, then RPath passes the Syntax Is Comprehensible Test.

5:09 AM XUL Questions and Examples

A new section has been added to XulPlanet! It contains answers to some common XUL questions, and provides a number of new examples.

I'm hoping others might contribute additional examples.

By the way, we've moved to a new host, so if you see anything broken, let us know. I do want to thank the XML Workshop for hosting us for free all these years. But now that XulPlanet has gotten bigger, it's time to move on.

11:20 PM Scary Monsters

Last night I watched the movie Monsters, Inc. Now I realize why I've never seen any monsters in my closet. I've always had the kind of closet that slides open, yet now I know that monsters can only sneak into rooms via closets with standard doors that open outwards.

I feel a bit safer now.

12:56 AM RDF Stores

Anyone know of a good RDF storage system? I mean a file format that stores RDF data like a database. I'm thinking a Mozilla component could be written that could read and write it.

I ask as applications that use a lot of RDF could get quite large using serialized RDF files. Take a look at localstore.rdf -- it contains a lot of repeated text. That file could get quite large with lots of data in it.

12:52 AM Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!

Just when I felt like I was starting to make some real progress, I get stopped spending 8 hours hunting down the cause of one bug in some code.

Some good news though is that I think I understand how to deal with the native side of XPCOM and the Mozilla string classes now.
