5.4 Requirements


DPT - runs on Win95/98/NT or Linux/Unix. It requires 8MB of RAM and 4MB on the hard drive. We developed and tested DPT on a 350MHz notebook and were satisfied with the speed for a project with 20 source-files.


There are some ideas on how to increase the speed of the tool:

- The Syntax-parser can be disabled.(Because the symbol-parser does the same job)

- If there are many project-files(>100): DPT can cache the symbol-table and will reparse

   only modified files(currently it reparses the whole project)

- DPT can keep the project-files(working copy) in the memory.

  (currently the working copy is on the hard drive in the project directory)
