I've recently been working my way through the tutorial provided with demo
CodeWarrior V8.0. and I've hit a couple of problems:
1. Basically, when I try to 'make' at the end of Lesson 7, the CodeWarrior
IDE closes down without any messages or warnings. It is the same on two
different machines running different (Windows)OS's. The result is the
same whether continuing from a previous lesson or starting from that point
by copying the relevant files from the 'Errand' folder.
2. From lesson 10 on, info. entered into the database keeps cropping up in
the wrong places, i.e. Tues Errands appear in Sun in the 'Create' form, but
sometimes correctly in the 'View' form. Also, sometimes spurious ASCII
characters are pre-pended. I must admit that I've confused myself a little
here with exactly what is happening here, but the fault is always present
regardless of whether continuing from a previous lesson or starting from
that point by copying the relevant files from the 'Errand' folder, hard
re-setting the POSE, etc. It looks to me like some kind of 'off by one'
I understand that Metrowerks do not provide support for the demo version
but I'm interested in whether other people have experienced similar
problems (at least with the tutorial).
I am assessing CodeWarrior with a view to buy, and at the moment my
impression is 'nice but a little buggy'. Would that be a fair assessment?
All the best
