Hello

from: Boštjan Špeti

" mhm... well, i can do it, though i am not sure why clusterconf is so lethal... :) it works for me anyway... ?
" would it be possible to prepare it to be usable more generaly?

It's none of my business, but the more generally useable idea sounds
good to me from here...

" regarding the day names (and period names, and maybe some other
" strings), i'm not sure in what way it would make sense to do it. your
" suggestion of dayN is probably better than the day names, so i will
" include it for now, but we would probably need more general way of

Great. :-)

" configurating it. that is why i am waiting for the new tablix...

" i think setting of this type could be set in the project files, not
" the central config. several other programs do it like this...

Isn't it often done both ways at the same time, with a defined order
of precedence of course? That way the end user gets to the make the
choice they like best, however silly their reasons might seem to
others. The various bash initialization files come to mind. I'm
still enormously confused about them. But I agree with you that a
lot of the settings would likely be specific to individual projects.
 It's hard to be sure which ones, tho.

" btw, i'm working on a redesign of timetable editor, to ease the complex
" timetable setups... after this is done, you can expect new release, in a
" few weeks. any more wishes for it? :)

I am very impressed by gtablix. One very good thing for me is the
extensive context related help. I think the documentation is very
good too.

The tab delimited files idea also is very very good, I think. It's
one of the things I like best because it shields me from the raw
xml. That saves me time by the bucketful. One of the first things
I did was load sample.xml and export the files to get an idea of the
format. So any polish/enhancement here would be attractive (sorry I
haven't used it enough to be specific). It's ticking away in the
back of my mind to wonder about setting up a database for myself to
generate these, but that's not something gtablix should do.

The day labels and command line arguments (however you think it
best, but there are a lot of us tinkerers out here:).

It would be handy if gtablix remembered the last directory it used
and if defaults could be specified by the user so it wasn't
necessary to start at or near / everytime.

Also, I've become used to reading timetables with the day labels as
column headings and the slot labels as row headings. I believe
tablix output does this the other way around at the moment. There's
nothing that I can think of that makes one way better than the
other, it's just a matter of habit, I think. So if there were a way
to specify that <layout rows="slots" columns="dayLabels" /> or vice-
versa or something? I don't know if this is appropriate to your
question or not, tho.

" mhm... well, i don't like partial solutions... PVM_ROOT is not all a
" user needs for working pvm / tablix, so it might only confuse
" users... (or not?). i don't exacly understand everything that is

Probably. And I'm confused enough already. ;-)

" needed for a bulletproof pvm configuration, mine works only until i
" dont restart the computer... :) if someone gives me an idea about
" everything that should be done, to prepare pvm for use within
" gtablix, i'll be happy to implement it, i sort of hoped that

This would be very helpful to me. I think that gtablix is the place
for it, too.

Sorry that these posts got so long.
