As we already said, this release is essentially for testing purposes. Indeed it was never tested on a large scale and it may still have some problems. So, you can help us already by installing and using it, and by reporting bugs.
If you really want to help, you can also test separately the different modules of the application: in each library are a number of test programs for important classes. See Test programs for a complete listing and instructions on how to build and use them.
You can use the debug tools developped for heavymole...
Below are listed some critical low-level modules (see Architecture) that need to be extensively tested since the whole application relies on them:
You can report bugs at firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the bug and how we can reproduce it.
You can also use the redirection of heavymole or the debug.log file created by the debugframe, once you are sure it is relevant. You do not need to send us all the file since it may grow consequentially. Please consider that we have a mail box with 10 Mb of disk space!
We also invite you to use the Bug Tracker tool and the forum on the SourceForge project home page
First, we suggest you to download one of the tarballs, even if you already installed a HeavyMole RPM on your system, so you can work on a local copy with local data (the "heavymole.cfg" file in the "heavymole-x" directory points to local files in the "data" directory).
If you want, you can try a "configure" to see if everything is alright and then go and work in the "src" directory.
You can compile in different ways (see Debug Tools for details on debug options):
Each of these commands can be launched from each library directory to compile uniquely that library. If launched from the "src" or the main directory, "make" will create an executable file "heavymole" in the main directory. Don't forget to launch HeavyMole with "./heavymole" if you already have installed HeavyMole elsewhere in your PATH.Under MS Windows, there is only one command available:
Compiling with debug options will do the following:
So, if you want to use the application for test or development purposes, you'd better begin with a "make debug"...
