Many thanks for the kind words.
If you can just hold one for a few more days, there is a new release
of the code coming up which should clear up a lot of these issues.
I plan to make arelease of teh code on the 9th february (Monday)
which is mainly a cleaned up release of the old code. As i wrote the
jave code for aima, i was initially working off edition 1 of aima and
then switched to edition 2.Also, i was using the code to learn ai
concepts, and the resulting code is a bit grungier than I would like.
Anyway, I have tremendously simplified and refactored the code besides
adding lots of comments (which a lot of people had asked for ). Also
now the code is fully in synch with edition 2 and there are afew more
changes like a makefile , removal of circular depenencies , mock
object based tests etc. I am justy waiting for the weekend to put the
finishing touches to the code and send it to Peter.This drop should
clear up the CSP related issues. The TVE demo will probabaly not run
still, since i am not focussing on graphics right now. anyway let me
see if i can squeeze it in .
Just hold on till Monday,
