linux gethostbyname

I've got working code to fix hostnameToAddress() on linux (bug #5909) but I'm not sure where to plug it in. Tracing through the code, it seems the lowest common denominator would be to hook MCSocketHostNameResolve(), but I'm reluctant to mess with socket issues down at that level because unexpected ...

Re: ANN: PowerTools 2.0

Yep, if the operating system supports it, that's another option as well. And then you can place it where you want it on the screen. Or screens, if you have multiple monitors.

There's a proposed fix for this for LC8, but not yet for LC9.

Re: Scripting IDE

<sigh> I filed a bug report a while back. *Someday* it will appear in the dictionary. Right now it's in the release notes for (if I remember correctly) LC 5.x.

Re: Meeting: March 1, Pasadena

Indeed there is. The BOF session isn't (yet) posted on the SCaLE schedule, and if I'm remembering correctly from previous years, you'd have to look at the schedules posted on the board in the main hall to find the BOF sessions. Of course, once we figure out where and when it'll get posted here. Look...

Re: Unable to understand Java FFI example

Thanks for the code. Yeah, if I just had pointers to data to deal with I'd be home free. Unfortunately, I have to deal with aggregate types as an analog for structs, not just pointers to structs. And then I have to work with individual elements of a struct within a struct, and one of those included ...
