Re: Can LC do math with precision to the 7th decimal place? - Solved

I'm wondering if the decimal number implementation has anything to do with the Livecode for FM project. Filemaker has a default 16 digit precision but can go up to 400 digits. They won't be able to be compatible if the precision stays as it is. In fact if this is the case we should get a lot of new ...

Re: Community widgets

Hi Hermann,

Just loaded the turnimage stack

pressed START then stop at varying times - 5 seconds 10 seconds etc - the whole ive livecode exits without any spinning or dialogs or anything.

I tried it on LC 9.04 rc3 and livecode 9.5 dp1 - exactly the same

O/S is Windows 10

Re: The acid trip that inspired Bill Atkinson to create HyperCard

HI Bill Atkinson was is too clever and not vain to not credit an inspiration. Visicalc was totally ripped off if you look at the metaphor but Zoomracks was just boxes around "Visidex" here is an article from slashdot -- I could'nt put it better myself (well I could but I don't have time :wink: ) I o...

Re: failed to follow the tutorial

Thanks Jacque, I should RTFM (Read the Fine Manual) - I read it in the release notes probably a year ago even though it was added to in version 7.1.2 nearly three years ago - I only moved from 6 series about a year ago - skipped 7 and 8. - I have "Comfortable shoes" syndrome, and if it ain't broke w...

Re: Refactoring Support for the LC Script Editor

Hi Mark, Thank you so much for this this, which we have all thought about writing - next time. Do you want to put your paypal email here or just PM me? I for one would like to contribute/donate something because even if I have no use for it at this moment, I certainly will in the not too distant fut...

Re: True graphics physics and game engine

Hi, Considering the physics engine was part of the 2013 kickstarter campaign it looks like it was put on the backburner. But here https://livecode.com/livecode-9-0-gm/ 10 Months ago Ali Lloyd in the comments says they have a working version using Chipmunk https://chipmunk-physics.net/aboutChipmunk.p...

Re: Audio and Video export possibilities

My First language was Basic on a timesharing system, then 6800 machine language on a homebuilt computer with 1K of static ram (I even remember the chip number 2102 - Eight of them for 1K). It was when I expanded it to 16K that the chip number was forever etched in my brain - I can't remember what I ...

Re: Refactoring

I really thought that it was the invention of Commodore (CBM) for their PET computer but years later I found out from Wikipedia that Jiffies where a time measurement invented in the 1800s - and they are also used in the Linux kernal The earliest technical usage for jiffy was defined by Gilbert Newto...

Re: Refactoring

Well knock me down with a feather, thanks Klaus. I ALWAYS assumed right at the start of my Livecode journey that it defaulted to milliseconds so I always put secconds or milliseconds on the end - so I never noticed. How could I doubt Jacques' recollection of the Livecode basics...... Can we count in...

Re: Label Field - Can I get it to name it's self?

HI Craig, So you are into QED and QM as well? - Wolfgang Pauli is the answer - brilliant retort. I would just say "that's Cr*p" because time's too short waiting for the penny to drop - I just save time and use 2 words instead of 4. Men of few words are the best men - William Shakespeare and who am I...
