Datatype project
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


See User information
Hi all,

I would like to setup a new project. For a start, I think we should choose a relatively easy one: enhancing the datatypes system.
This is one feature that gives its identity to AmigaOS so let's move it forward.

List of required features:

- streaming
- new datatypes (vector graphics?)

Please make a proposition and I'll update the list...

There was a lot of chatter about this in the "Workbench enhancement project" thread. It could be an idea to PM those who posted there and see if they want to continue the discussion here.

Enhancing the datatype system is of great importance. this is some of the still great features of AmigaOS.

Some ideas:

sound.datatype needs support for 16-bit and 32-bit sound data.

Also there should be methods for reading and writing sample data similar to what the picture.datatype has now with READPIXELARRAY / WRITEPIXELARRAY. It should also support streaming so I guess there needs to be some method for sound.datatype to use to ask the subclass for data when it is needed. It should support reading/writing of interleaved sound data as well as one channel at a time.

The old method of getting/setting sound data should probably be deprecated and have only 8-bit sound data for compatibility (converted by sound.datatype as needed).

I think the streaming facility should be implemented at datatype.library (or root) level rather than in any subclass because every datatype can benefit the streaming feature, not only sound...

Back to a quiet home... At last
