( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In my office we use MKS Source Integrity which is great from the Change Management & Workflow perspective. We used to use a combination of CVS, VSS & RCS repositories prior to migrating.

At home and when no one is looking I personally use Mercurial. (my vote) I really like the idea of a distributed system rather than a centralized one. It took me a little while to grok why it's better. I'm sure that everyone who uses Git probably went through the same awakening period to get over the paradigm shift.

The bottom line there is that there still can be a centralized repository but by having distributed repositories feeding into it you can improve the quality of the code that ends up in it. If nothing else it solves the age old debate about if you should check in any time you want or only when your code is working. Only working code should go into the main repository - and feel free to keep all the crap you want in your local one.



Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

    [ambrus]: level where people can more easily write as good mathematical papers in them as the people who write bad LaTeX papers usually write.
    [ambrus]: Yes, for like the first twenty of its years, TeX was basically the only system that allowed you to write decent maths papers, and C++ and PHP were programming languages that sucked, etc. But times change and people have to accept that.
    Discipulus bad people + good tool < normal people + decent tool
    [Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
    [ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
    [ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
    [ambrus]: ad code examples.
    [ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
    [ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
    [Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
