Community Bonding Period

Due to my semester end exams (Apr 26 - May 17), my time spent during community bonding period was less but I still managed to do the following:

  • Week 1
    • Prepared a flowchart to understand how the execution of the rtcheck program works : rtcheck_flow
    • Was introduced to 'gdb' which helped me a lot to analyze the flow.
    • Understood how the front-end portions of rt and back-end portions are connected by linking the view*.c files
  • Week 2
    • Read the documentation to understand the RTUIF API :
    • Understood the origins of libanalyze functions.
    • Discussed some ideas on how to implement the libanalyze function, all were bad ideas because they all involved calling the rtcheck program using execvp() as they usually end with exit().
    • Was suggested a basic plan on how to proceed.
    • Understood how libanalyze functions were used by an example : libged/voxelize.c and libanalyze/voxels.c
  • Week 3
    • Complied a version of the rtcheck program by just copying the relevant files to libanalyze/overlaps/.
    • Discussed the plan related to rtcheck in detail.
    • Understood the concept of using contexts and callback functions.
