|linearray||00:09||I do remember some people here using SDL
it's definitely been done before :)
|linearray||01:09||lol, is that the drawback to using irccloud? you occassionally get k-lined? :)|
|dougma||01:09||no idea what happened... occasionally the whole thing tumbles over. :)
it's pretty, but i'm not sure if i'll persist with it
|linearray||01:09||07:23 -!- dougma [[email protected]/web/irccloud.com/x-flmbsqflbdiohlbm] has quit [K-Lined]
my guess is someone misbehaved and freenode killed off all of irccloud
that's a serious drawback of the irccloud approach. :)
|JT_||10:09||Hi all, I was on here yesterday wondering if there was an easy way to stip unneeded code out of firebreath and the distribution of boost that FB uses, but noone was available, anyone areund today?|
|kalev||10:09||JT_: I don't think there is, but wait a few hours and stay on this channel; I believe taxilian_away was working on getting the binary size down
he might have a better answer.
|JT_||10:09||ok, thank you
I'll stay on
|taxilian_away||12:09||JT_: what platform are you on?|
|JT_||12:09||My main is mac but it needs to be a cross platform solution.|
|taxilian||12:09||okay; on Mac, the biggest thing you can do is to build it 32 bit only instead of building a universal binary
when you build a universal binary, you're essentially packaging two copies of the plugin into one file
and then of course build it in Release mode
|taxilian||12:09||There really aren't any unneeded things in FireBreath; you might be able to shave a little bit off, but I doubt you can get rid of much|
|JT_||12:09||What do you mean by unneeded?|
|taxilian||12:09||but if you're building universal and you don't actually need 64 bit support (64 bit browsers on mac can use 32 bit plugins) you can roughly cut the size in half by only doing i386
I mean there isn't really anything that I can think of that you can conditionally compile out that wouldn't break the whole abstraction. there are probably a few things here and there, but for the most part they are all abstracted out
you could probably use JSAPISimple instead of JSAPIAuto to get some savings, as that would drastically reduce the number of templates instantiated, but I bet that'd only save you maybe 50k, if that
you can of course try it; I'm just guessing based on what I know of the code
It would still need the entire system set up to support that?
|taxilian||12:09||define "the entire system"
what part would you remove?
things that aren't used will be removed by the optimizer
|JT_||12:09||I'm not sure, I was looking at it and it's hard to tell what each part does.|
|taxilian||12:09||tell me a part, I'll tell you what it does
it's all pretty basic
seriously, though, I would try first compiling a release build w/ i386 only
it's not going to be very big
maybe 500K, compressed
|JT_||12:09||Ok, I'll give it a try.
And i'll have better questions if I need to come back.
|kylehuff||13:09||okay, so, apparently, stuffing the output of getenv("somevar") into a std::string on windows results in a segfault... on linux it is no problem though...|
|kalev||14:09||kylehuff: getenv can return NULL, should check if it's NULL before passing it to std::string's constructor|
|kylehuff||14:09||yeah, I should have just used char*... 30 minutes of debugging later - lesson learned.|
|kigero||15:09||is there a (relatively) simple way to launch a process from a firebreath plugin? I need to be able to download a file (which I can see how to do) and then launch an exe (or mac equivalent), passing that file as an argument. I'm thinking boost.process may help here, but I'm wondering if there's something easier to include that I'm missing.|
CreateProcessEx on windows
there is something similar on Mac, but I forget what it is offhand
you don't need anything fancy if all you want to do is launch a process
you should be aware that on windows Vista/7 in IE you may (if UAC is on) be stuck in protected mode and be a low integrity process, though
|kigero||15:09||oh, excellent - I'm glad I asked then.
luckily IE isn't a requirement for this project, but good to know. thanks!
|taxilian||15:09||you should be golden, then
google it, there are several examples around
I don't have the url for the one I used last week on me right now, but it wasn't hard
|kigero||15:09||CreateProcess works like a charm on Windows - thanks again!|
