Code Scrapbook

Some of my source code did not make it into an own project, because I found out that it didn't work the way I have expected. Sometimes I also lost my interest in that project. Anyhow I have invested some time into research and development. Other developers might be interested in the code.

Now, before you start reading the source codes, consider this:

  • All source codes in the Code Scrapbook are in a very early stage of development.
  • There is no installer. You need to have developer skills to make the software run.
  • Do not expect end user quality. In fact, do not expect any quality at all.
  • The source codes are poorly documented and poorly structured.
  • The software is mostly untested or in a pre-alpha state. Expect bugs, errors and crashes.
  • Do not expect me to fix bugs or add features. However I gladly accept patches.

List of Scrapbook Code

  • acarsclient: A client for acarsd servers
  • dvblib: A Java library for reading (and writing) DVB streams

Any Questions?

I will gladly answer your questions to the code snippets. Please check the following FAQ before asking:

  • I am not a software developer. How do I make the software run?

Not at all. The software in the Code Scrapbook is incomplete and not meant to be run by end users.

  • I have just learned Java programming. Can you explain why you did ...?

I am not sure if it is a good idea to learn from code you have found in the Code Scrapbook. The source code is experimental and badly structured. It's a bad example for learning...

  • In the Scrapbook I have found a software that I was looking for. Can you add a feature for me?

Sure! Send me the patch and I will gladly add it. :-)
