  Quick And Dirty Parameter Tuning
  Submitted by



Have you ever had a parameter value that you needed to tune interactively but didn't want to spend the time to make that possible? You can use your debugger to do this easily.

Original code:

thePhysics->ConstrainPosition(0.05,0.04,0);

Tunable code:

static float xstr = 0.05;
static float ystr = 0.04;

thePhysics->ConstrainPosition(xstr,ystr,0);

By setting a breakpoint and modifying the value of the statics you can tune the values in a persistant fashion (i.e. they won't get reset between invocations of the code within the same debug session) without recompiling your .exe.

The zip file viewer built into the Developer Toolbox made use of the zlib library, as well as the zlibdll source additions.
