Overview

Welcome

Welcome to my Quake study page. I am planning to read and understand the Quake code for fun and learning. I am an electronics engineer and studied c as part of my course. Even though I turned out to be a software engineer later, I never did production grade C. I mostly used Python, JavaScript and Java. Last time I wrote decent C code was when I was in final year of engineering.

I am not studying this to learn C programming. I am studying this just to enjoy the beauty of software produced by Johns. To explore whats behind that game I love.

Process

Downloaded code from ID Software's ftp site. This repository is just a fork of it. I am adding comments as I read and understand the code. Then I will use Pyyco to generate human readable documentation.

The repository helps others to contribute and track. Once its complete I will publish the complete documentation on my site.
