Brain File Format
« on: September 24, 2009, 02:49:46 PM »
I want to generate brains from my own program and would like to gen the logic in xml. If I can get the file format I can convert. Anyone have it?

I think you would have to beg and plead and throw mail sacks of cash at Art for that file format.

It wouldn't be impossible or even difficult to reverse engineer the format. All you would have to do would be generate the output for each input. Since there are a small number (relatively) of inputs, it would be tedious but not difficult. Why would anyone want to keep the file format of a user interface secret? The more people or programs which use the interface, the more useful the interface becomes. If I create a program which can take logical input and generate an xml file which in turn can generate a brains file more people can use Mach3 easily. If I have a 12 key input device and don't want to delineate every possible sequence in the brains editor, I can create an xml file which in turn can create a brains file.

Never mind. I'll just feed the xml to the program as keystrokes. Offline I don't care how long it takes. Thanks anyhow.
