Re: My advice to Livecode

Th euphoria of liveCode going 'open source' has been and gone... it seems that there is more interest in how the engine can be changed for the benefit of the 'few', instead of improving the basic foundations and making the language and its tools more easily accessible to 'many'... I would say quite...

Re: Wrapping DEFLATED data

Well, there is a way to trick the 'decompress' function into inflating the data, but you'll need to know the length of the uncompressed data.
It involves tampering with the header and trailer of the compressed data; but the point is moot if you don't know the uncompressed length.

New statistical functions

Hi all, My curiosity pushed me into figuring out how the built-in statistical functions were implemented (e.g. average and standardDeviation) And then I got a bit carried away, and started implementing the functions which I had implemented in pure LiveCode earlier: averageDeviation (with shorthand: ...

Re: filter enhancements

Update Revised the implementation as I wasn't happy with the way it looked (OO code-smell). After another round of testing, started over from the 'develop' branch. Everything seems to work as expected, so I submitted pull request #73 . If anyone's interested, take a look at the feature-filter-enhan...

Re: LCObjectPost on OS X...

@monte: I was looking at my old Quartam JVM External project, created with the good old externalsenvironment3 for desktop externals.
When I opened it with the latest Xcode, it wasn't too happy and mangled my build settings.
So I was wondering if you had a magic recipe :-)

Re: Integrating revFont

@trevordevore
Maybe you can derive some information from my experiments with the 'tinker' command (in preparation for 'filter' enhancements)

Re: LCObjectPost on OS X...

This is indeed exciting news - though we still need that Unified Externals API :-)
By the way, any tips on building Desktop externals from Xcode 4.6.3 [extended with older SDK's]?

Re: filter enhancements

No, Monte - I would save 'tinker' for a much more important command in the future :-)
And to those interested in the progress: I just pushed regex support to my repository.
Some more testing (and probably fixing) needed and then I can implement and submit it properly.

Cheers,

Re: filter enhancements

Update I've been working on this in a branch 'experiment-tinker_command' and been pushing the commits to github. GIven that my first (not so good) changes to the filter command brought the IDE to a grinding halt, I decided to first get it working correctly as a separate 'tinker' command and then sh...

Re: Livecode Community & Commercial MODGUI

Just to make sure I wasn't telling lies, I downloaded MobGUI from the website, and the scripts were indeed password-protected. I agree there should be a flag to warn people that it only works for the LiveCode Commercial Edition, not the Community Edition. Then again, there should also be such a flag...

Re: Learn desktop business apps

For my RunRevLive'09 presentation 'Desktop databases' I created an example application which you might find interesting.
It's in the downloads section of the quartam.com website; here's a direct link.

Re: Android/Java externals

I really like the idea of us trying to make the engine as easy to extend in other (embeddable - i.e. easy to launch a VM) languages as possible (Java is definitely a good first target, given the breadth of functionality available). However, I think it would be best to evaluate the way forward in th...

Re: LCContextGet

@runrevmark: we can provide additional annotations on the parameters to allow specifying the default values.
As I noted before, I'm not opposed to .lcidl files to help the engine figure things out; but ideally an annotation processor would spit it out for the developer.
