The FS World is against me!

Recommended Posts

Ever feel that the FS World is conspiring to ruin your entire day. After years of tweaking, endless payware purchases, a new 6 core based system and other hardware purchases, I go to perform a very simple task ie. drop a couple of .pln files from FSCommander into ASN. Error! Can't parse file. Is there any difference between a .pln file and a .PLN file?

File parsing errors have less to do with file extension and more to do with format driven by that file extension. A parser should, in general, be able to identify and ignore comments and stray characters, extract keywords and their data, and handle file i/o errors gracefully, i.e report the error in human readable format specifying why the error occured in laymens terms.

 

Parsing is possible if a standard format is adhered to for each file extension and not if changes to the generation of that file change or if the parser itself is changed resulting in expected conflicting program behavior. Best thing to do is bring this matter to the attention of both FSCommander and ACtive Sky Next developers and they can work out why this error occured. Also, make sure you are not modifying the file causing the parser to throw a fit.

It's not just you Jon. At some stage FSX will bite everyone one the bum. One way to reduce the regularity if biting is to never, ever say, even to yourself, that your FSX is running perfectly. :Shame On You:
