Re: To wrap or dontWrap...

Yep, different programs do different things. Though LC does a poor job when it's asked to display uncommonly-long words, it shines with inline and paragraph styling, super-efficient buffering, and many other features shipping apps rely on. Exploring the edge cases that define the boundaries of the L...

Re: To wrap or dontWrap...

The good news is that for most practical needs this is rarely a problem, since all languages tend to have word breaks at a reasonable length. So the issue tends to come up when displaying things that aren't readable text, which raises the question: if it's not for reading, why bother putting it into...

Re: How do I get the byte size of a substack?

Maybe. If you've already done a binary read of the file into memory, that will help. But if the file is still on disk, the function below will help. One tip for geting help here is distinguishing between stack files and substacks: A stack file is a file in LiveCode format that contains one mainstack...

Re: How do I get the byte size of a substack?

Ah, so we're talking about stack files, not a substack within a stack file. Much simpler. Getting the length used to be sufficient, back when LC only handled single-byte encodings. But now that LiveCode supports multiple encodings Mark Waddingham recommends using the byte chunk type for binary data,...

Re: How do I get the byte size of a substack?

For what purpose? The size on disk is not the size in RAM. Once we know the goal we can advise on how to achieve it.
