Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.

QuoteOriginally posted by: EtukaQuoteOriginally posted by: Polters/and you think that's/and you think its (NOT "it's"!)I'm afraid it's it's. Its is possessive...Just as it's supposed to be -- the context of the sentence is "its feature is X", not "it is X." The relevant fragment is: "you think its quality adheres the requirements".// BTW, outrun -- s/adheres the requirements/adheres to the requirements I'm pretty positive it's "its" -- remember "it's" is just a contraction of "it is", a good rule to find out whether I'm right is to substitute "it is" in the fragment above and see if it still makes sense

Ah. Pendantry requires enthusiasm and diligence that I just don't possess any more.

Did it occur to anyone to name to library as "Wilmott ..." such as Wilmott quantitative finance library or Wilmott quant toolkit? Or is that no good for trademark reason?btw it would be nice to name the root namespace in the c++ library as wilmott...

There are multiple viewpoints and software styles here. For example, FDM is a framework-driven development that uses Boost and C#. Other projects would create libraries (based on the boost style, for example) which has different work practices.Each style has its own priorities in ISO 9126. The development of libraries and framework do not necessarily have to impact each other. I would like to see contributions from (potential) users and their requirements, as well.

Looks like a load of good stuff is going on. I like outrun's initial contribution page, and much of it makes sense. But I think for people to be able to contribute, they need to understand the architecture and operating model they are contributing to. So outrun's initial draft is good starting point, but first we need to break the project up into the various pieces.This is going to be difficult to do on a forum as it is difficult to share ideas, diagrams etc. Is there a better way we can communicate?
