Beginners Guide to Porting NETMF Typos


#1

Hi,

This is a great book and I can’t wait for it to be finished.

Some typos:

Page 5
3. Your code will run on all these devices with almost on changes.
Should read:
3. Your code will run on all these devices with almost no changes.

Page 20
You will find 2 folders, bin, lib and obj
Should read:
You will find 3 folders, bin, lib and obj

There was another one, but I can’t find it now…

Hope it helps.

Thank you,
Errol

#10

My last typos… :slight_smile:

Page 22
Fro example, make sure that your RS232 connection is well established.
Should read “For”

Page 25
The NETMF porting kit ships with a tool called “Solution Wizard” that can be used to add or remove components fro your NETMF porting solution.
Should read “from”

[quote]P.18 Third Paragraph
If you are using one the supported compiler

[/quote]

Maybe that should read:
P.18 Third Paragraph
"If you are using one [italic]of[/italic] the supported compiler[italic]s[/italic] then this is one command, if" :slight_smile:
Didn’t even see this one… :slight_smile:

This is strange. Sam, is your post missing a /bold?
Everything after “The folder we are most interested in is the bin folder.” is bold, even other posts… :). Don’t know if it is just my pc…

Thanks,
Errol

Looks like you are reading the porting book. I am not going to fix anything in that book till it is all done.

I don’t know, I just cut and paste from my NotePad file, That I noted while ago when I read the book. When your started this thread, it is the good time that I added that in before I forget…

Sure he did reading the porting book! :smiley:

I would not worry about the correction for now, Gus is kinda very busy preparing for the upcoming Maker Faire in NY.

BTW, have you read the Beginners E-Book?

Thanks for doing this,


#13

lol, the ebook is almost as bad as the porting book honestly. Not so many spelling mistakes that would show up with a spell checker but there are a lot of grammatical mistakes and grammatical structure which makes things unclear.


#14

This is why I have a notice at the beginning saying this is a free book that was made on short free time. I barely have time to write it and never read it a second time :smiley:

If someone is bothered much and is willing to help as a contribution to the community then I am open to suggestions. I have users fix the book a bit but again, this is free work so it is not perfect and will never be…free comes with a price :slight_smile:


#15

Gus:

It is the content that is important. Given the choice, whether new information comes quickly or it takes longer to make it perfect, I think the answer is obvious.

I have said it before, I consider the e-book one of the best technical manuals I have ever used. But, I have only been programming for 45+ years and have a lot to learn.

I try to bee a gud speler and righter, but when I went to enginer skool I did not take a corse on enlish grandma. ::slight_smile:
