Developer Linux News for Aug 06, 2008

  • Open Phone Hardware Vendor Frees Schematics (2008-08-06 21:30:05)
    Linux Devices: "OpenMoko has promised to publish schematic diagrams for its latest hardware design, the Neo FreeRunner. Schematics should enable community developers to create alternative firmware for the device, in order to better adapt it to entirely new purposes."

  • Your First Linux Playstation 3 Programming Steps (2008-08-06 20:00:05)
    IBM Developerworks: "The real centerpiece for the PS3, however, is its processor -- the Cell Broadband Engine chip (often called the Cell BE chip). The Cell BE architecture is a radical departure from traditional processor designs. The Cell BE processor is a chip consisting of nine processing elements (note the PS3 has one of them disabled, and one of them reserved for system use, leaving seven processing units at your disposal)."

  • The Busy Java developer's Guide to Scala: Packages and Access Modifiers (2008-08-06 06:00:05)
    IBM Developerworks: "Scala takes a slightly different approach in respect to packaging, treating it as a combination of the Java language's declaration approach and C#'s scoped approach. With that in mind, a Java developer can do the traditional Java approach and put a package declaration at the top of a .scala file just as normal Java classes do; the package declaration applies across the entire file scope just as it does in Java code."

  • Learning Doxygen for Source Code Documentation (2008-08-06 04:30:05)
    IBM Developerworks: "Maintaining and adding new features to legacy systems developed using C/C++ is a daunting task. Fortunately, doxygen—a documentation system for the C/C++, Java™, Python, and other programming languages—can help. Discover the features of doxygen in the context of projects using C/C++ as well as how to document code using doxygen-defined tags."
