Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Has he found a compiler that will let you mix all those languages in source files, and produce a single executable?

I'll ask him.

Re: Spelling mistakes

Ther's more than spelling mistakes, there are elementary grammatical mistakes.
If you can point me to a way to sort out ALL versions of the Documentation (i.e, not just the PDF)
I'd like to think I can sort out 98% relatively quickly.

I would not be so daft as to mention 100%

Re: Spelling mistakes

What is the URL to the pull request or bug report number you submitted on this? I'm never quite sure why your comments seem to get on my nerves about 90% of the time? [Probably because 90% of mine annoy you: whoops; truth hurts . . . . . . self-knowledge is all very fine, up to a point. ] Tomorrow ...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Can you describe what you do want? Prickle, prickle . . . 8) Seems I did that earlier: What I meant is, for the sake of argument, to program a front-end in LiveCode and some of the "heavy lifting round the back" in another language and be able to "spit out" a standalone application at the end of th...

Re: "lipo" command

You are allowed to use lipo to combine different architectures into a single framework, but Apple forbids the combining of different platforms (macOS and iOS). It seems to work OK, and it's often done for frameworks distributed outside the app store, but Apple says it may stop working at any time i...

Re: Spelling mistakes

Well i prefer British English then, the way we got it to learn at school (at least in the Netherlands). And no 'slang' allowed either, like: Am instead of I'm or I am.

Re: Printing Troubles -- Will they ever end???

Why not say next to each function or command if it requires a library to be included when compiled? It really seems like a major fault in the documentation.
I agree with you 100%

Re: Printing Troubles -- Will they ever end???

How did I work that out?

Make the Documentation your home-from-home. :)
