Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

Funny you should mention Camino de Santiago. One of our regulars walked that last year.

Glad to meet you. Welcome aboard.

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

Item: Perhaps I'm out of line here and perhaps it's the role of a moderator and not mine to say that we all have different skill levels and areas of expertise and that's why there is a forum where people can ask questions and get assistance from others. In that light, I think you'll agree that the ...

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

I am embarassed to confess, that my problems installing the chromium browser was a personal mix up of passwords. I see that as a good thing. It means you use multiple passwords. Too many people use one password for everything, so if any one thing gets hacked everything in their life becomes vulnera...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

It should have taken you no more than 5 minutes to work that out. The first time I encountered a Garage Band file I'm pretty sure it took me more than five minutes to figure out it wasn't a file at all. It never would have occurred to me that one of the most powerful tech companies on Earth couldn'...

Re: carriage return

It's very simple: CR should always mean Carriage Return (ASCII 13) LF should always mean LineFeed (ASCII 10) return means either, as adjusted to suit the platform NumToChar() should always return the char. as specified by the ASCII number used I just want to point out that all four of these work as...

Re: Using Search Box Forum with a "linux server" exact phrasing-

Actually i was going to check for the use of : $tzone = strftime("%z"); which return a different content whereas you run it on a windows or on a Linux server... no big deal, just curious to check that result on both systems... :wink: strftime is a Linux command, not LiveCode. Does PowerShell suppor...

Re: Using Search Box Forum with a "linux server" exact phrasing-

This forum uses the default PHPBB settings for search. Not sure why the results are so weak.

That said, I do a lot of work with LiveCode on Linux, both desktop and server. Is there something I may be able to help with?

Re: carriage return

Numtochar does always return what is asked for. Put Chartonum(numtochar(10)) —> 10 Yes, this still works, although it (numtochar/chartonum) has been deprecated since version 7! Only in the most limited sense of "deprecated", and for reasons unrelated to line endings. The original use case for those...

Re: carriage return

As I think about this some more, it seems the specifics of this use case raise a larger issue: the value of doing server development on a system that most closely matches the production environment. Unless you plan to limit deployment to Apple hardware exclusively, most server apps will be deployed ...

Re: Datagrid loc field dynamically

The "of me" clause is the way to go. Adding the extra card reference makes it invalid. If "me" contains: group id 2001 of card id 1001 of stack "SomeStack" ...then prepending the object and card reference as shown above would give us this evaluation: field "E_B" of card id 1001 of stack "SomeStack" ...

Re: Player does not show on ubuntu

I've never gotten the "stop" command to stop a playing video on linux. Once it starts playing you have to wait for the end. Me neither. Have you found any Linux movie player which offers a command line API that lets us start, stop, and play from specific time points in the media? If we had that I'd...

Considering all the choices, you ever looked at Geany?
I use it on the desktop daily, but for servers I need a CLUI.

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

Nah, I wouldn't punch you for that, I always figured you for a Vim (/ v ɪ m /; a contraction of Vi IMproved) guy though :wink: Good guess: I did look at both, and I have begun learning Vim. The only problem has been that I need to edit text so frequently I haven't had time to spend learning either ...

Bogs is right, Gille. I was trying to give you both a fish and a fishing pole, so you get the answer to the question you have now and a good means of finding answers for new ones later on.

Re: carriage return

I can only explain why it is why it is. I believe you underestimate the scope of impact on backward compatibility, though given that the future of the language is hopefully longer than its history perhaps it's worth submitting an enhancement request and see what the team has to say: http://quality.l...
