Re: Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

If you want to monkeypatch your own preprocessor into the script editor, here's the code to handle the conversion. The works well for script-only stacks because you can write the code in a text file with a normal text editor, then run the conversion in memory so that the LC compiler doesn't choke. Y...

Re: On/Off auto-type in preferences

The blinking cursor is just before the first char of text, but when you select a block of text for copying you get everything to the left margin.

Re: FYI: python 3

Here ya go. In very general terms, the 'engine' is the non-script part of LiveCode. Lotsa lines of C code all put together by gyp and makefiles in a highwire balancing act. Abandon all hope ye who enter...

FYI: python 3

In case anyone else is tempted... setting python3 as the default won't even start to compile the source code. If you've got both python 2.x and python 3.x installed, as I have, ensure that python 2.x is the default for python. I ended up spinning my wheels for the longest time with a weird error fro...

Re: Looking for LiveCode coders

Should make embossed bytecoins instead. Then we could cut them up and bitcoins would be Pieces of Eight.

LC Documentation Cache Cleaner

I just posted a public domain Documentation Cache Cleaner utility stack to livecodeshare. When first launched, the LiveCode IDE will build a documentation cache for the current version. When you upgrade to a new version, a new cache folder is created, but any older cache is still in the system. When...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

That's weird. Not really. The github repository allows you to build the community project. The installer has to handle all the different editions, check the licensing details, package all the myriad parts and unpack them into the appropriate places with proper permissions, etc. There are good reaso...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

The installer isn't part of the FOSS code, so it's not on github. Peter B found the problem, but it's up to the team to fix it.

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

Apparently the launch thing isn't important enough to fix (although it's interesting to note that apparently it did work in LC 7.0.6):

Re: Looking for LiveCode coders

@karmacomposer

NetPlan does indeed work with ubuntu 18.04. There's no nice gui front end to it that I know of, and that may be where you're thinking the combination of LC and node may well come into play.

Re: Add pref for renaming behiors

Craig-
Back in the day, a stack ID was immutable. This might resolve the whole issue, if the behavior pathname referenced the stack ID instead of the stack name.
Unfortunately no. The stack ID has always (IIRC) been the next available ID for object creation, and thus a moving target.

Re: Make Windows look like Mac

It's important not to make Windows standalones look ugly.
