What is this?
Requires Mac OS X 10.5, since FSEvents were introduced in 10.5, and an Intel CPU. Supports both manual memory management and garbage collection.
What differentiates CDEvents from SCEvents then?
Not all that much but a few things differentiate the two. The (event data wrapper) class
CDEvent is immutable in contrast to
SCEvent which is mutable. The next difference, which were the initial reason why I decided to rewrite
SCEvents is that the class
SCEvents' is a singleton class, where's
CDEvents is a "normal" class. I couldn't find a good reason as to why
SCEvents had been designed that way and for my project a "normal" non-singleton class would be and is better.
Another difference between
SCEvents is that
CDEvents is available for both manual memory management and environments using garbage collection.
So I've written some of the code from scratch and "borrowed" some from
You can generate API documentation with the help of Doxygen. In Doxygen open the file
api.doxygen, click the
Run tab and then the
Run doxygen button. When it's done you should have a directory (ignored by git) in the root of the project named
api with a sub-directory
html in which you will find
index.html double-click and enjoy.
