Author Topic: Possible request get VWatch to operate over tcp/ip on another PC.  (Read 49 times)

This really is a request of FellippeHeitor.

I get a headache using mutli-monitors on one pc.  But I can hack it using a second PC.  I use to do a whole lot of assembly programming using Intel development systems.  The kind where the processor is substituted, with a Intel pod head.

Back in those days, the target system could run undisturbed showing the development environment.  It would be great to get VWatch to operate over TCP/IP.  To do the same.  Many more nice things can be monitor'ed in realtime.  Even more break conditions can be created making VWatch more powerful.

It's more work, but makes VWatch that much more.

Thoughts ?

It's planned!

The idea of using TCP/IP locally for inter-program communication is already being developed for InForm - and it is already implemented and being improved for upcoming Beta 8. As the editor and the preview are two separate programs running simultaneously, I used to share data between both via a file on disk, exactly like I had done with vWATCH. But now they share data without relying on disk access, which is much better indeed.

When I start working on version 2 of vWATCH I'm certain to use your suggestion. Can't make promises as to when it's coming out though.

Thanks for supporting vWATCH, doppler!

Fellippe.
