Re: LiveCode Serial Problems - will they ever be fixed?

Hi Jacque, Thanks for the advice, but for some reason that didn't work (no idea why, opening the file for write and writing data to the device worked fine...). Anyway, now the device is refusing to send any data to the /dev/ttyACM0 file - just my luck! I can still receive data through 'screen /dev/t...

Re: LiveCode Serial Problems - will they ever be fixed?

Not a framework as such, just the Arduino serial printing data which can then be received from LiveCode through "open driver..." command. I've found a solution. I don't particularly like it (and I'm not looking forward to working with an alternative for Windows), but I can just use the shell() comma...

LiveCode Serial Problems - will they ever be fixed?

Hi all, I encountered this issue before when I tried to write a LiveCode app to interface to an Arduino. LiveCode constantly crashed, refused to open the driver, etc... I eventually solved the issue by downgrading to LiveCode 6. Unfortunately, I'm now on a 64-bit GNU/Linux computer, and LiveCode 6 d...

Re: HyperTalk 2.2

Hey Alejandro, If your Analytical Engine book comes with the floppy disk, would you be able to make an image of it? I have the book but not the disk... Also, what other HyperCard books have you got / are getting. I currently have: HyperCard 2.0 Handbook HyperCard 2.2 Handbook Hyperdictionary Underst...

Re: HyperTalk 2.2

(I'm in the UK so I think postage would be expensive... but:)

If you're talking about HyperTalk 2.2: The Book, I just want to second the opinion that it is "priceless". I have my copy that I purchased a year or two ago on Amazon, without a doubt the best reference to HyperTalk ever published.

Re: Analytical Engine - An Introduction to Computer Science

Hi, Just seen your post. I have this book, bought it recently of Amazon, but has not started reading it yet. Unfortunately the one major issue I have with the book is the fact that it comes with a floppy disk with the accompanying stacks. For this you'll need an old Mac to read the disk in. That was...

Re: Case Change

Hi, The function you are looking for is the toLower . This converts all uppercase letters in a string to their lowercase equivalent. For example: put the toLower of "HELLO WORLD" --results in "hello world" put the toLower of "Hello World" --results in "hello world" put the toLower of "hello world" -...

Writing to a file in DOS format [SOLVED]

Hello, I am trying to use LiveCode to generate some text files that will then be run through a third party tool, but I have run into a problem. On a Mac (what I am currently trying to use) LiveCode seems to write text in the MAC formatting. However, the third party tool only works with files that ha...

Re: Livecode Arduino

I see from searching there are issues with this from version 7 update. But it appears to have been resolved. But we just can't make it work. I posted on this issue less than a month ago, and although Quality Control Center Bug ID 12545 has been marked as RESOLVED FIXED, it has not (at least for me)...

Re: Serial Communication with Arduino

Hi everyone, After a bit of googling, coding and testing, I have found the answer to this. LiveCode 7 appears not to work with serial communication. I have now switched back to using LiveCode 6.5.2, and everything works well. There was only I change that needs to be made to my above code for communi...

Serial Communication with Arduino

Hello, I have been trying to allow LiveCode and an Arduino Uno to communicate with each other through serial. I have tried various methods, and yet I cannot get either transmitting or receiving from LiveCode to work. Receiving data from Arduino in LiveCode I set up a simple sketch on the Arduino whi...

Re: LiveCode on Puppy Linux

Hi,
I have just tried to run the app from the command line. When run, nothing happened on the command line, just like when clicking on the app. Any ideas?

Re: LiveCode on Puppy Linux

Hi, I have just tried something that I probably should have tried at the beginning: Installing an older version of LiveCode. I tried LiveCode 6.7 and it installed and ran successfully. However I would really like to use LiveCode 7. Does anyone know why I can install LiveCode 6.7 but not LiveCode 7? ...
