Suggestion: List of Updated Files

Post by pathos » Tue Jul 27, 2010 7:38 pm

Mike:

I was wondering if you could start adding a list at the end of each chapter (no need to go back and do this to old chapters, just begin now) which lists 1) all the new files added to the project, and 2) all the updated files. I have a few different projects going, and one of them follows your tutorials. When you release a new chapter, I added the new code into my project, but sometimes I have to go dig around and compare line-by-line my code vs. your new code to see if something else changed, like one line inside of the floppy driver or something. You could add something like this down below the demo link:

Code: Select all

New Files:
  - filesystem.c / filesystem.h
  - fat.c / fat.h

Changed Files:
  - floppydriver.c
  - DebugDisplay.c
  - main.c


This would give me an idea of which files I need to look for changes in.
Just my suggestion -- I think it would helpful. Thanks for reading!

+1 I agree. I was kind of stuck with the virtual memory tutorial because I didn't know why the kernel wasn't mapped at 0xC000 0000, and I discovered later that the bootloader was modified.
