Re: Multiple 'for each' in a repeat

I think 'and each' should be unambiguously parseable. Contexts solves this situations. When the parser finds a "REPEAT FOR EACH" is starts a new context focused to solve this special kind of syntax. In this context "AND EACH" makes sense as an "END OF LIST TO BE ADDED AND START OF a NEW ONE" (both ...

Re: Multiple 'for each' in a repeat

The not clear part of the new proposal is how it will handle multiple lists of different sizes, and the best approach to that. What do you suggest? Go stepping while there is one larger list not finished yet and getting EMPTY for those items on shorter lists already done? And as you propose a not s...

Re: Multiple 'for each' in a repeat

I would like to see real examples of the use to better understand the proposed concept, like: ---Currently, you could write something like this: ###snippet1 ---And using the proposed syntax you could write the same like: ###snippet2 ------ Or vice-versa. New proposal first, and how it can be achieve...

Re: Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

"No one is proposing to remove PUT, just create an alternative shortcut syntax allowing people to choose." Right: gottit. Still not all that keen on it as I wonder if it wouldn't just obfuscate things. I'm sure both are clear about the meaning. I feel the opposed, the proposal makes it more clear. ...

Re: Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

It would. I've never been fond of the "set" verb, or the "let" verb for that matter, but it would solve that problem. I think a more xtalky syntax, though, would be something like: set x to 3 set y to "hello", z to 3.14, myVar to someArray["whatEver"] You could write it more readable breaking the l...

Re: Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

The advantage is listed. Write fast, write less, be more clear. # Wordy salad PUT 54.3 INTO X PUT X * 17 INTO Y PUT Y / 4 INTO Z # Setting X, Y and Z, more comfortable to read in a glance. More Math friendly. # Ease to write in less keystrokes. Syntax closer to 99% of other current languages # As an...

Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

I would like to be able to write it in a fast way with multiple comma separated evaluations in the algebraic order (x=value, instead of put value into x) Another semantic for the SET keyword enabling it to handle this could be an option like: SET theVar = theValue, theVar1 = theValue1, ... theVarN =...

Re: How to read a QR-CODE?

Hi Matthias, Monte could make the current docs public on his website. I believe that this is, per se, a good marketing. Android is the most important mobile OS worldwide (yes, I know that inside USA many could say *what?* but I have the numbers) and people see MergExt as an iOS only solution. That s...

How to read a QR-CODE?

I want to capture (using the device camera) and read the contents of a QR-CODE in iOS and Android.

Did search "qr-code" in this forum and found nothing. ( and I found that the forum search feature is not reliable ) :(

How can I do it in Livecode?

Rick.
