CodeClip attaches multimedia, Web links, files, non-English script and real-time voice recording to plain text (ASCII) files with one-click or hotkey playback, without altering text. Fantastic code documenting, scripting, technical teaching tool.
Version: 1.2.0025Imagine commenting your code or script just by...talking! Communicate with students, code maintainers, future programmers, and fellow scriptwriters in your own voice and language, using The Code Closet's revolutionary CodeClip. You can also attach Web links, pictures, diagrams, bug reports, non_English documents, and executable files at the very line in your script or code referencing them!
Operating System: Windows
The software is targeted at programmers, Web page authors, teachers, network administrators, and anyone who writes scripts that control computer application behaviors. It is extremely useful to teachers, authors of technical books and/or tutorials, code librarians, and anyone whose native language is not English.
One of our beta-testers told us her son had discovered a totally non-technical and unexpected use - as a speech writer! For technical users, the source code or script file that they produce is written in plain (also called ASCII) text. It is usually written with some kind of plain text editor, often specially designed for that kind of programming or script - Web designers might use an HTML editor, for example, and a programmer might use the Visual Basic or Visual C++ development tools.
The output files that are produced for these purposes must remain as plain text so that the compiler or interpreter that tells the computer what to do can understand (or 'parse') the contents of those input files easily. Because the scripts or source code are often difficult to read and understand by anyone other than the original author, most good programmers and script writers put comments and notes into their code.
That makes it possible for someone else to add to or fix the original code, or even for the original author to remember what he or she was doing years later after they've long forgotten. This step, often overlooked by inexperienced coders and script writers, is critically important to professionals - the value of software is only as good as your ability to maintain it.
