commandline compile - using neobook like an compiler

Postby HPW » Thu May 27, 2004 11:19 pm

Inspirated from the discussion on template here:

http://www.neosoftware.com/cgi-bin/ikon ... topic=1553

I would make more sense to do pub-generation when it would be possible to call the neobook-ide with a commandline-switch for direct compile and terminate (and no GUI).

neobook.exe /c "C:\MyGeneratedPub.Pub"

Then an automated process (maybe via web) could deliver customised applications. Would add more power and potential market to neobook.

Interesting idea. I'll add it to the list.

After a lot of wish-list items are now reality in NB 5.01, I hope this get nearer to the top.

I have now a huge app, which will be delivered in a lot slightly different versions. This has now to be done by hand. A automated process would be very handy to get updates etc. out quickly and safety.

An option would ba a separate commandline compiler:

neobookcc.exe "C:\MyTemplate.Pub"


So just another of my cents (euro).

Well, I hope this is AT the top.

I am at a point a commandline compiler would save me days of work. I am generating hundreds of ebooks, each in chm format. Each ebook uses a pub as the launching menu. The pubs are all the same, except for a few variables. The neobook strReplace action does this real fast.

But, now I have hundreds of pubs, all which need compiling. :( With a commandline compiler, I could put all these pubs in a folder, and loop through and compile them. :)

Note: It's not our fault, Dave. You created something that allows us to do these wonderful things in Neobook. So now, instead of just a bullet, we need a case of ammo. :wink:

It's already on the list, but I'll make sure your message is added to the stack.

Shaking off an old dusty thread.

I'm still interested in the command line compiler. :)

I had forgotten how much this would help, I have been selling software by compiling one at a time with license info ... Since its a very small amount of software, it s no problem now... but this would be very handy as I am approaching several new and seperate releases.

Thanks

Did you miss some old news (5.5.3)? ;-)

http://www.neosoftware.com/forum/viewto ... ommandline

- Added a command line compiler option. To use the command line compiler, start NeoBook with the /C switch followed by the full path and file name of the publication to compile. For example:

NeoBook.exe /C "C:\Program Files\NeoBook 5\My Pubs\Sample.pub"

The command line compiler will only accept one publication file at a time.
The publication will be compiled using the publication's last saved compiler configuration.
Make sure NeoBook is not already running before using the command line compile option.
NeoBook will close after the compilation is complete.

Personally, now that you mention it, I do seem to recall reading that. (I previously posted on this thread without fully thinking about it.) ;-)

Have not yet played with that feature... That being said, it sure would be neat to be able to have a redistributable compiler, for example, that could be redistributed for the creation of personalized applications on the fly (for example, by vendors--or by whomever.) But I understand the implications of offering such, and understand why doing so by Neosoft might not be feasible... ;-)

Ok, even I totally forgot about it, since I looked at the post (again):

http://www.neosoftware.com/forum/viewto ... ommandline

I feel like a big idiot. :oops:

And once again, Dave (Neosoft comes through).

And thanks to Hans for refereshing my brain. :lol:
