    Question CF or RR Plugin Devs - please comment

    Looking for feedback from those that have written plugins for CF or RR. What did you like and what didn't you like about how they did plugins?

    I liked examples.. lots of coding examples just simple ones which then enables people to get something working without much thinking, from then on its easy to add.

    examples is allways good, and documentation... With those two keywords, the imagination is the only stopper for a great plug-in

    Holy CRAP man welcome back i havent seen you on this side in forever!


    As someone who's coded for both RR and CF i find RRs method far more flexible. RR's plugin interface also has few easily to understand functions which provide a wealth of interaction between source and plugin whereas CF's interface required a bunch of methods just to get CF to see the plugin. Course i havent written a CF plugin in some time so that could have changed by now. RevFE's interface is nice too.. but VERY complex in the manner that you are basically transmitting/receiving calls on the fly.

    ie C (variants), VB, Delphi, Cobol, Fortran, Cesil etc.




    (OK maybe those last three are highly unlikely, but you get the idea)

    How could you forget Ada? If it's good enough for the DoD, it's good enough for me.

    (Does the DoD even use Ada anymore?)

    Take a look at this:

    And for designing skins (for serialization based plugins) - Have a look here:

    And then let me know what else you had in mind...or whats missing...
