Re: Sir Henry at Rawlinson End

I can think of no better place for Sir Henry than Off-Topic, and I imagine if Viv were still with us he'd no doubt agree with the lack of being pigeonholed.

Re: compiling on modern linux distros (2019 version)

Hmmm

So I'll assume that bugfixes should be submitted against 9.5 (or 9.0 respectively) and other pull requests should be submitted against develop. Which sort of makes sense as long as someone takes care of the catherding.

Re: compiling on modern linux distros (2019 version)

which branch is which now? these branches are all active on the tree: develop develop-9.0 develop-9.5 If I build from the develop branch the build is tagged as 9.5-rc1. Should I no longer submit PRs to the develop branch? What's it for now? Is the develop-9.5 branch actually just for 9.5.0? Is devel...

Re: Send PATCH requests in lieu of POST

yeah, shelling out to curl (although I prefer httpie) would also do the job as long as you take care package up the parameters properly. And you'd get results much faster than waiting for an enhancement request to be fulfilled. Post the bug report number here when you've filed it. I'll add my two ce...

Re: Send PATCH requests in lieu of POST

Well, as the author of the libSOAP library I suppose I should chime in here with something. I have to say that I haven't looked at that code in several years now, but... The libURL library that underlies all the http code supports the GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE verbs. You'd have to er... patch... th...

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

If you use the server product to run scripts then you don't need the "-ui" modifier. Here's a test script (I have the server in my path to avoid having to specify the complete path in the hashbang line: #!livecode-community-server include "test1.lc" local x, y put 3 into x breakpoint put x into y pu...

Re: A basic tutorial...

A hint for watching:

If you click on the gear icon at the bottom of the YouTube playback screen you can adjust the playback speed. That will give you some extra time to read the text before the video moves on.

Re: Implementing full regex in LiveCode

While you're thinking...

maybe you could post what your real-world problem is. It's hard to craft a generic solution without knowing the parameters. Do you really have something like 1235ABCD1288ABCD in the corpus of the text you're working with or is this just blue-skying?

Re: Implementing full regex in LiveCode

Yeah, you have to run matchtext() more times in the faster solution; so my guess is that matchtext on a single word is going to be faster than running matchtext on the entire text to see if there's a hit. What I still don't get is this: if you need to go through the entire text looking for hits and ...

Re: Implementing full regex in LiveCode

Yeah, mine too. But the problem with this approach for this situation is that if you've already located the text objects you want to delimit with non-printable characters then you've already solved the problem of you're trying to solve by delimiting them and you might as well convert them in situ.
