  • Yullo,

    Have a peek at http://www.jsunit.org which provides a nice testing framework for javascript. As well, plxpcom is currently kinda flaky, but there's been a bit more activity recently and it _does_ now build. I believe my housemate is going to look into doing some more with it and I'll have a peek at stuff when it's a bit more solid.

    woot.

    • I found it here [edwardh.com] . Thanks.

      Regarding plxpcom, it wouldn't build for me on either 1.6 or 1.8b1 of Mozilla with perl 5.8.4. I uploaded my detailed install notes (they won't go thru the "compression filter" here for some reason).


      • uploaded it here [bu.edu]...

          Hmmm.... looks like possibly old MakeMaker stuff, haven't built it in a while it must be admitted. Will look into it again, but it _has_ compiled for others.

          • I don't think it's MakeMaker, as my version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker is the latest version. I assume you're referring to the "CXX is not a known MakeMaker parameter", but as far as I know it's never in fact been a MakeMaker parameter. I admit I'm pretty clueless there, though.

            If only they'd give detailed accounts of exactly what they did.. like what exact version of Mozilla (including link to download from), what version of Perl, etc.

            You mentioned that there has been activity in plxpcom recently. How do you

          • Oh, and I wanted to ask.. how do you find documentation on XPCOM components? (sorry, that's probably a FAQ, but I haven't found anything good) I've found lists of interfaces, but that doesn't do me much good.
          • It did build okay after I updated if from CVS after March 14th. I wish I could find a mailing list or IRC channel where I could ask questions. (Hm, maybe I should look for a more general XPCOM list..) Now that I've gotten it built, I find that I don't really understand how I'm going to use it yet. I guess I should start by reading the tutorials this weekend and reading through the mailing list archives (ending in 2003 :( ). At this point I've lost some confidence in how useful it's going to be for me, beca
