Re: Files vs. Stacks

The other "conceptual difficulty" that intersects with this namespace one is the question of what actually is opened or closed. Ie the notion of "closed but remaining in memory" I set all stacks I make now to close out completely, unless they are system utilities or are monitoring system utilities....

Re: Files vs. Stacks

The other "conceptual difficulty" that intersects with this namespace one is the question of what actually is opened or closed. Ie the notion of "closed but remaining in memory", which is also one that I will have to become more familiar with. It's this intersection that I think has resulted in thin...

Re: Files vs. Stacks

When I create a new stack here, the first one is titled "Untitled 1". If I close it and make another, the second is titled "Untitled 2". Can you give us a recipe to reproduce what you're seeing? Ermm... You're quite right of course, the behaviour is as you describe. Now I've checked my notes I see ...

Files vs. Stacks

hi, Is there anywhere that gives a good, succinct overview of the relationship in LiveCode between files and stacks? Lately I’ve been getting those cryptic Purge/Save/Cancel messages and though I’m not sure what exactly is going on I do know I’ve been losing quite a bit of work. The impression I’m g...

Re: Performance problems in LiveCode

Thanks Richard. I'll try out 8.1.9 at some point and file a bug report if needed. LC 7 probably gives me all I need right now without performance issues so I'll stick with that meanwhile.

Performance problems in LiveCode

hi, I'm trying to puzzle out some performance differences in LiveCode as I have it installed on different machines. The problem machine is my netbook, running Windows 8.1. Running LiveCode 8.1.8 on this, I get a real performance hit when I use the message box. CPU spikes to about 50% and typing in i...

Re: Problems with LiveCode updater

Fair enough, it just seemed like a neat piece of integration and way of staying up-to-date. If manually updating I'll probably be more conservative and update only when I'm aware of reasons for it. Which is maybe no bad thing. On the multiple versions - I appreciate I can have more than one LC hangi...

Problems with LiveCode updater

hi, I have just installed LiveCode (Community 8.0.2, build 13025). The updater offered 8.1.0-rc-2 and I thought I would take it up on it. Once it downloaded it started installing. After half an hour the installation bar had hardly budged and was clearly not going anywhere. Cancel didn't work, I had ...
