QISLIb_MT Revision History

This page contains notes on the release history and revisions made to QISLib_MT. QISLib_MT's initial release is "embedded" inside an application/library called clipextract.

New Installation Folders and Examples

Upon installation, there will be a new folder called 'qismlib_cs Source' which contains the source code and a Visual Studio 2008 .NET project to build qismlib_cs.dll. When you build this project, it will make a copy of the new qislib_cs.dll and qismlib_cs.xml to the installation directory so that it is ready for use.

There will also be a new folder 'CS Sample' which contains the source code and VC# 2008 project to build a sample application that uses qismlib_cs.dll - When you build the project, a copy of clipextract_cs.exe will be created in the installation directory so that it is ready for use.

In 'Example Files', there is a new batch file 'extract-demo-cs.bat' which provides a sample run of this new C# based exe. To see all the command-line options of clipextract_cs.exe, Please run clipextract_cs.exe -h. Please be aware that there are some slight differences in the command-line syntax between clipextract64.exe and clipextract_cs.exe.
