Long break 2

UPDATE: I’m rewriting the program almost from scratch in VS2013. I can’t promise anything though as I might give up halfway. If anyone’s curious about the developing code I can share it on SF. I use c++11 features and the interface is currently using Qt though I do everything to make the interface separate from the code. I use Qt containers but most of them can be replaced with simple STL. I want it to compile under Linux as well as on Windows. In theory it might work on a newer Mac but I don’t have the tools to check.

I’ll write about my experiences with Qt on the weekend or next week.

    Well, once you have got something to be compiled I might help you testing it on OSX. I am also a programmer and I have got a Mac Air 2013 with Lion installed, so I’d be happy to be useful for your trial.

      Thanks, I’ll post about it in the blog. It’s still a few months away though.

    Awesome news! I have always wanted to make a Qt port (I think I wrote you about this a few years ago), but never had the time.

      I can relate to that. It’ll take a lot of time to implement everything that was written before just to reach the same level of functionality. And I still seem to remember a lot about the code! Although I spend most of the time figuring out Qt.

    Awesome! I knew it’d be a good idea to keep subscribed to this blog. Despite not being updated in a while ZKanji is still my go-to Japanese dictionary for words and kanji on Windows.

    sounds Awesome that you coding it also on VS!
    Is there any way that you can provide a .*txt File with just all the Kanjis and their Kana’s?
    Example: Kanji: 寿司 
    Written in Kana: すし

    I would really appreciate that, my C++ skills arent good enough to reproduce your load_dictionary function 😦

      I suggest you look into the KANJIDIC project. This is where I get most of the kanji information for zkanji too.

      There’s also kanjidic2 if you like xml better.

        Ah okey!
        Im still wondering how’d you buld the Kanji for Sushi as example.
        In the .XMl file are single Kanjis but if i write すし that are actually 2 Symbols of Kanjis.
        -> 寿司

        How have you done that?

      You’ll need a dictionary for that. The reading of kanji has no direct relation to the reading of words. Check out JMDict.

      Anyway, this really is not a forum for your coding questions regarding Japanese software. Search engines are your friends.
