I'd maybe propose that the 'detailed machine' would report the results of the commandline 'lscpu', but that's probably too much information.
What is the 'detailed machine' ? Or are you thinking of adding such and say, making it really detailed?

Re: Extension of systemVersion

If all functions are hard written into the engine(s), then it might be harder to justify for edge cases like the ones I mentioned. Except for a handful of cases (most url related syntax for example) all engine syntax (properties, chunks etc.) and functions which have a 'the' form (e.g. the processo...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

The actual proc files are what I usually target (like when your writing a top program), but for something of this level it isn't really needed. I agree a nice C api would be great, but I don't think your going to get 800+ distros to agree on that one, and besides, proc files / lscpu / dpkg have bee...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

The main question to ask here - why does it make sense for there to be engine syntax for it? I haven't delved through the code for the entire IDE, so there are lots of parts of this puzzle I am not knowledgeable about. Heck, I haven't even finished completely documenting the Mc IDE I work in regula...

Re: Last but one

Or if you combined those and cut out the middle, (if your talking about *just* the last 3 characters) why not

char -3 to -1 of xxx ## = last 3 chars

Code: Select all

put "working" into tmpWord; put char -3 to -1 of tmpWord
= "ing"

Re: Extension of systemVersion

ight but the above are presumably running a on a 64-bit debian environment... So that is a 64-bit terminal, calling a 64-bit lscpu I think I wasn't clear enough, this pertains to the real processor, you will get the real processor no matter which program processes are being used (the psuedo hw). No...

I was going to reply sooner, but REALITY hit me right between the eyes! downRightNowForums.png I really should consider my remarks more before hitting 'submit' :P Keep in mind I haven't touched the deep roots of a Win box in many ...

Re: Using substacks versus external stacks

Huh, and here I thought using behaviors and script only stacks was supposed to result in *less* code, or am I getting that wrong? Also I would think that it would take an order of magnitude more code than the previous IDEs had to generate this kind of sluggishness in the IDE, but I'm almost certain ...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Yah, I read that discussion and even posted a link to it in this thread back here *Edit 3 - Also came across this interesting discussion about the processor function. The problem I see with it occurs in several ways. First problem: you might get the emulated or host CPU. What ever you *might* get, y...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

Well, I'm sure you already know how to 'cat' that stuff, and it might matter if Lc was designed to run on every distro, but since that isn't the case, you really only have to know if it is running on Ubuntu, Mint, or straight Debian maybe. Unless the desktop is Gnome, I'm not sure I'd be counting on...
