Once we've established that hard tabs are vastly superior to spaces, the amount that that tab represents is trivial. You can have 3, I can have 4, my neighbour can choose 7 for all anyone cares.wardred said:You're all heretics. Hard tabs at 3 spaces. Two not nearly enough to easily line the columns up, and any more is a total waste of space. Argh! :b
Just a failed attempt at humor. With the proper tools your editor should be able to open the source file in your "preferred" format. Hard tabs, spaces, opening braces placed at the end or beginning of a new line, whatever.WizardStan said:Once we've established that hard tabs are vastly superior to spaces, the amount that that tab represents is trivial.

u tell them mayne open srce 4 lyfe....daffy said:I don't mind using closed-source things; I just feel that the name "Open" Pandora is deceptive.
The only things that appear to be "open" here are:
- the firmware; and
- the development process is a bit more public than usual.
But the development process is not significantly "open", or I'd be able to download specs for the case, board, etc.
And I can run open source software on any number of closed designs. Like a ThinkPad.
So how is this thing "Open" Pandora?
I understand this now...craigix said:What we won't do is release enough information to allow the Pandora to be cloned. That would be silly.
Nah, you are doing just fine with what you have.hobbyman II said:oooh! look! an idiot, can I keep him?, can I? can I?
Golly, just like what is happening with the Openmoko. Oh wait, it isn't.open does not mean OP give away the design so some Chinese firm can physically copy it for next to nothing with an inferior set of electronics and undermine the project, open means you can code for it with no restrictions, maybe you should learn to read or something.
schematics for the board will never be released, they said as much, as for the case, if you have a Pandora then copying the case is not rocket science, but don`t expect to be told how to pirate the design, people have spent a lot of their own time, money and resources making this thing, there's no rides for freeloaders, do you really think after all this effort they are going to give the design away?, what would stop some big firm making a couple of million of them then selling em at a fraction of the cost just to wipe out OP?, lot`s of big firms don't like open source, they would rather see a device like this crushed.
Glad to see that disclaimer, at least.that's not a paranoid opinion imo,
