Reading a c++ rhp plugin for R4


#1

Hi everyone, I’ve been searching in the forum about this one but wasn’t able to unearth anything. I’m working on a Catmul Clarke python script and have a c++ plugin written by Erik Thorson for R4, I am trying to get into it to read the code but I can’t find away of accessing the c++, I only get garbled characters when opening up in eclipse etc. Any advice on this please would be really appreciated.
Thanks
Chris

I suspect that what you have from Mr. Thorson is a compiled plugin, which is basically a dll. Unlike RhinoScript and Python, where the source code “is the program”, plugins written in C++, C#, VB are compiled into dll’s and normally are not provided with the source code. Perhaps you can track down Mr. Thorson and ask if he will share the source.
