Re: encrypt using rsa

I kept an example private RSA key as a PEM file. This example worked for me. One note: You had: put it into put it into tThingEncoded which has "put it into" twice - I don't know if that was a cut and paste, or how it might work. Here's my test stack and example RSA key file. I did it in 7.0.3 on Wi...

Re: encrypt using rsa

Did you try "encrypt source using rsa with {public | private} key key [and passphrase passphrase]" as described in the Dictionary? I only mention it because your message didn't have the "using rsa" in it.

Re: Centering stack on current monitor

Here's a stack I use to find wayward stack windows in multi screen space - I sometimes park open stacks off screen. It may help.

Re: Normalizing data..........any suggestions?

Normalize is a procedure defined at the bottom of the code you are using - lunarphasecalc.zen:

Code: Select all

% normalize values to range 0...1
function normalize( v : real ) : real
    v := v - floor( v ) 
    if v < 0 then
        v := v + 1
    end if
    return v
end function

Re: Normalizing data..........any suggestions?

Rage,
What does "JD" stand for? Also, do you have an example of the calculation in Zeno with the output (what IP contains after the "normalize")? That would give some more clues.
Thanks,
Walt

Re: LC stalls in a long process.

Craig

In combinatorial, you have "repeat until x = n" but later have "put the number of items in x into noItems" How does a list of items equaling an integer terminate a repeat loop? Should that be "repeat until the number of items in x = n"?

Interesting Challenge and Concept

I saw some discussions of floating point precision here and on the mailing list recently. I also received a loosely related email from www.dzone.com (that I cut and partially pasted below) that I thought might be of interest here. Given RunRev's and golf's mutual Scottish roots, LC Golf might make f...

Re: [Never mind] Message Box Problem

After a few hours of trying to debug this, I rebuilt the same set of stacks with the same scripts, and the problem does not happen. I guess some days the IDE can wake up cranky?

Message Box Problem

This is probably stupidity on my part. I have a stack with a substack. In the substack is a single line stack script for the openCard message : on openCard put the name of this card into fld "fCardName" end openCard so the name of the card is displayed (in the app I am changing the names of the card...

Re: Centering stack on current monitor

Look at "screenRects" in the Dictionary. I've used that to determine which screen the user has put the stack.

Re: Parse the Array

Try

Code: Select all

put the keys of myArray1 [b]into [/b]pKeys
otherwise post your code so we can see how the arrays are getting built.

Re: Line wraps and rendering performance

Has anyone done that in a tablet or phone? I imaging going from landscape to portrait would incur a similar penalty, if you are resizing fields.

Re: Message To Field When Content Changes

I'm going to revisit the Subscriber/Publisher IPC mechanism for a bit (for this and the pseudo-multitasking discussions). I've sketched out a spec for a utility stack and hope to put together a V1 tonight.

Re: Message To Field When Content Changes

Thanks, both good answers. The issue is the field won't know ahead of time what script might update it, and the script may not know the specific field name (ie passed by reference). I'm thinking of re-architecting to a PubSub kind of architecture, so the fields and the scripts updating them don't ha...
