[Mono-list] Better error-messages for user?
Wed, 30 Apr 2003 13:23:18 +0000
Is it possible, to create better error messages for user as default?
If there don't exist a needed library for an compiled C/C++ program, the
error-message looks like
/home/96/0/7/9607794/scilab-2.7/tcl/browsehelpexe: error while loading
shared libraries: libXaw3d.so.7: cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory
If in Java there don't exists a needed class file, the error-message looks
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: at/dms/kjc/Main
The problem is, that not all users know, how to handle this errors.
For example: There existing a lot of games, which need the libsdl (Simple
If you have now installed a C/C++ program, which need this lib and it is not
on your computer, there comes an error message like the first one, that
libsdl.so don't exists.
And I think, if there existing a .net-binding, the mono-error-message looks
But, is it not possible to create a better error message?
My idea for this:
In the .net-libsdl-binding there existing a module where stand, which
version this binding is, where you can download a newer version, etc.
If you now compile your C#-program against this library, it includes in the
assembly parts of the libsdl-library, so that the following is possible, if
the C# program starts:
// start this program normally
else if (gtk#-library existis)
// open a window where stand, that the library libsdl and the bindings
// don't exist.
// You can now close the window or can click on a part of it, to see
// more infos about it.
// if you click on the part of it, the window goes bigger an there stand
// where you can download the libsdl-library (which is one of the parts,
// which was then compiled in the program by the programmer, if he
// compiled against this needed library, so that he don't need to
// write all the download-links of the foreign library in its own
// against which version the program was compiled, so that it is for you
// guaranted with which version it runs, and a little description
// how to install it: "rpm -ivh libsdl.rpm"
// Notice with System.Console.WriteLine as output, that gtk# is not
// installed, where you can download and install gtk# and that
// libsdl is not installed... etc.
I am not a programmer, so is it possible to create something like this?
