Lots of new goodies in version 1.1 of Cartier's Contribs
(available by anonymous ftp from cambridge.apple.com as
file Cartiers-Contribs-1.1.sea.hqx in directory pub/mcl2/contrib)
- Online help is now present for every exported symbol
of Cartier's Contribs.
- Cartier's Contribs now include fasl files for every
source file resulting in much faster loading.
- Much improved documentation (many thanks to the MCL
documentation team for developing such a nice format).
- The distibution medium is now a Stuffit Lite very fast
self-extracting archive. In addition to speed and
autonomy, using Stuffit Lite archives also have the
advantage that they preserve the finder icons position
and color resulting in a much nicer Cartier's Contribs
- Popper-Menus: Using this unit you will be able to create pop-up
menus that can appear anywhere on a mouse click,
just as for my Who-Calls and Collections units.
- Online-Help: With this module you will be able to add help
files just like MCL's own to your applications.
Your help file will be totally integrated to
MCL's help system (meaning the user can type
one-of-your-function control-x control-d and he
will get a nice documentation window describing
Improvements to old units:
- Collections: I added System7's command title clicking feature to
fred windows. Command title clicking a fred window
will now give you a nice pop-up showing the pathname
of the file associated to the window. Selecting a
folder from the pop-up will bring the choose-file-dialog
in that folder which can be very usefull, as most of
the times related source files are located closely
to each other within the folder hierarchy.
The collections unit now uses MCL's list-definitions
function to collect toplevel definitions so that a pop-up
showing all toplevels definitions can now be shown for
any lisp file.
- Extended-Apropos: Added a small feature that if activated, makes
the extended apropos automatically do a search
each time one of its pop-up is used.
