Re: How to install and run LC on Pop!_OS Linux distro ?

Thank you for writing, Fred. I'm very familiar with Pop!, having invited the System 76 crew to present on it at an event I co-organize at the SoCal Linux Expo. Good people there are System 76, and Pop! is a solid distro. I'm surprised something so close to base Ubuntu has an issue installing LC. I u...

Re: Plugin "User Tools Palette" on Sample Stacks

Thanks for posting that, Simon.

This isn't a bad choice for posting this, but unless you're primarily looking for other developers to expand it, would the "Using Plugins for Customizing the LiveCode IDE" section be a better fit? I can move it if you feel it is.

Re: Use send for file cleanup?

You probably don't want each CGI process hanging out for five minutes.

Another option would be self-cleaning: what if each new request deleted older files from earlier requests?

Re: Use send for file cleanup?

CGIs are discreet processes. LC is launched by Apache, runs, returns a value, and dies with each request. This keeps things simple and tidy, but obviates persistent processing like needing to run a periodic cleanup. Cron is the tool of choice for periodic tasks, but if you want to clean it up with a...

Re: the microseconds

Assembly? Why not cut the development time by 90% and use C?

And if that much precision with time is required, does the CNC require specialized hardware (mobo, bus, etc)?

Re: the microseconds

Sure. But I have a vague recollection of a conversation with Mark Waddingham about the accuracy of measurements smaller than milliseconds. I got the impression such things would be approximations, perhaps not all that different from what we could obtain with arithmetic on milliseconds. Do I misremem...

Re: Terribly slow LC loading time

Normally each version is in its own folder, and they do not interfere with each other. Can't say what happened there, but glad you have a good install now.

Re: Terribly slow LC loading time

The paths seem straightforward enough. Yes, it may be helpful to try a fresh install.

Do you have any third-party plugins installed?
