Work on Okteta has been stalled a little. My pet next big feature is also big in work needed, bigger than hoped for, so it looks like it will have it’s come-out time rather with KDE 4.3.
For some quick’n’easy success I turned to the Decoding Table tool the last evenings. As it comes with the 0.1 version of Okteta, it is pretty much inspired from the one of KHexEdit, minus the bitfield width setting:
Now with 64 bit architectures pretty much spread, one data type is missing there, 64 bit integer. Also support for UTF-8 might be useful in general. And perhaps even some more, or specific ones, one day hopefully addable by plugins.
The KHexEdit style table does not scale. So for the inclusion of the new datatypes I decided to replace it with a simple two-columned list table. Now done and committed it is, heading for the KDE 4.2 release:
Please tell me, what other decoders would you generally expect in the table?
