My (preferred) name is Caitlin Potter, but for the time being my legal given name is Dylan.
I've been a software developer since about 2005, primarily working with C, C++ and Perl (however, I do very much enjoy Ruby, and Java is nice too). I've written numerous programs and scripts for Synrevoice Technologies, and have contributed to some small independent projects here and there.
- audio signal processing
- 3D visualization
- artificial intelligence
- electronic music
After a few nights of headaches trying to build mozilla-central on windows 7 with Visual Studio 2010, and not getting much in the way of help from IRC, I have finally got a preliminary build together, and am able to attach the VS debugger, which is nice.
Minoo Ziaei blogged a mozconfig which gave me some insight into the build system and helped me to get things working correctly.
I've blogged about it here
While I am still investigating exactly how the changes I made to my configuration allowed me to compile without -WX being passed to cl.exe, and will certainly explain this (because it is not obvious at all from the readme or documentation provided by mozilla), I will post about it again when I figure that out completely, for the benefit of other people who are new to the mozilla source.
