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

Re: Windows 7 Alias to folder: treated as a doc

Sounds like it's a bug. Does the correct thing here on linux, so my guess is the engine code for creating aliases on Windows is only creating file aliases.

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 ...

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.
