Reality and “cthruview”

The reality is that I code all day anyway so it is really hard to find time to work on Osiva. I spend any extra time these days worrying about porting a real time VxWorks system into Linux. Boot time, scheduler tweaks, kernel modules, shared memory, power loss… All the things you don’t have to worry about under VxWorks. But then everything in VxWorks is kernel code, which does not work so well as the system grows.

Luckily other people like writing imaging applications also. One of the pending features for Osiva was to provide tracing support. A few people have asked for it, but the idea was filled out by Remik Ziemlinski.  The idea is to use native alpha transparency on the image window and then allow events to pass through the window, so you can lay the image over an image editor and trace away.

Remik did not feel like waiting for me to add the feature to Osiva so he wrote it himself in Java:

    Would be just great if you will make Osiva open source and put all files for example on: http://sourceforge.net/

    BTW. Big THX for yours effort while creating Osiva. I using it very often :) . Good luck :) .
