Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

Hi all,
Thanks for the interest in the problem and in the language.

First, regarding to CPD tokenizer requirement - looking inside CPD sources I see they need the yokenized data in java structure. heir own PHP and C++ tokenizers are written in Java, but it doe snot mean we cannot execute Perl tokenizer, and they import the data (though it will take time to fit the information, I guess).

Meanwhile I executed CPD over some C code and got very nice results. When changing my Perl files into .java I got some limited answers as well, so I might just use what I got. It depends whether I will get the reources (tiem and people) to work on it or not.

Regarding to the language, and the primary language -
  • It is called QTL, and it comes for Qa Testing Language
  • Using this language we were able to execute distributed tests over any number of machines in a multi platform environment. All, BTW, written in Perl.
  • The new version, already working for a year, reduced the amount of special QTL commands, and gave the developer (almost) full Perl capabiliites.
  • Two main objects are use in QTL/Perl - a machine, and a label
  • $machine->command() will execute the command on the remote machine, and will return a $label.
  • $label->attribute (such as result, state, exitcode) will check the executed command and give the developer updated status all of the time
  • The converter from the old language to the new syntax was rather simple, and was executed a year ago. This means we cannot go back to the old sources, since we had many changes already.

  • I cannot give more information without management approval (which I won't get, I believe) - this is not an open source project. On the other hand, I plan to give a lecture in YAPC::Israel::2004 which will take place on February 2004, so you are all welcome.

    Back to our business - the duplication detector - although it is very interesting stuff, unless I come up with a fully automatic tool that find duplications over several files and give the user proper information on what to do with them, I believe I will need to take some of your advices, and work manually on it.

    Question is - what do you think will take longer, and what do you think will be more reliable ?
