Re: dev-tech-svg Digest, Vol 85, Issue 6

Manikandan R
Thanks All for finding me a right bug.
The bug fix work is going on smoothly at a descent pace,
Appreciate if anybody could help me by pointing me to code documentation or
any resource which would help me understand and grasp
the source code much efficiently .

Any suggestions on above would be a lot of help.

Regards
Manikandan.R

Re: dev-tech-svg Digest, Vol 85, Issue 6

Robert Longson
Developer docs are here:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs

So the string class used throughout the gecko codebase is documented here:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/nsAString

Many parts of the code have no documentation other than code comments. If you have specific questions, ask in the bug or on irc.

Robert
