Re: Added tutorial on more advanced GUI automation
- Hi Dennis,
I would love to add them to the core, however there is no way I can
do this, since I am not a member of winguitest project on source
forge. Of course, I can place distribution somewhere else, and link
to them from the Win32::GuiTest documentation but it would lead to
I fully agree that compatibility, ease of use and so on are
important. And I had that in mind while implementing my functions. In
most projects the next step should be a peer review and discussion of
the code. However, we don't have time and resources to do that. We
have to choose between 2 evils
* Let unsufficiently discussed changes go into the core and let the
module to become richer
* Wait with all new changes until we have time to review them, which
considering current resources would stop the development.
I think the first option is better.
And congratulations for your son! Is this your first child?
Well, I expect that your activity in this group will drop
significantly :-)). I know something about it, because I have 2 kids.
