exec in newlisp 10.7.1/Windows

Seems like exec in newlisp 10.7.1/Windows opens it's second argument in text (as opposed to binary) mode. Test: (exec "od -b" "hello\r\nworld\r\n") Output with newlisp 10.6.2 0000000 150 145 154 154 157 015 012 167 157 162 154 144 015 012 Output with newlisp 10.7.1 0000000 150 145 154 154 157 015 01...

Re: newLISP Stable Release v.10.5.0

The exec behaviour in win32 was changed somewhere between 10.4.5 and 10.5.0 (sorry, I haven't followed the development releases). In 10.5.0, it replaces "\n" line endings with "\r\n" in the executed process stdin, in all previous versions it wasn't (my pet script I found broken by this is dated back...

That's good. In fact I haven't upgraded from 10.3.2 because of previous behavior (I strongly dislike system directories pollution). Now I'll try to be up to the current release again. :-)

Re: Joe editor lisp.jsf update for newlisp 10.3.0

Hmm... I've also forgotten to mark read-buffer as deprecated in my newlisp.vim highliter. But, reading the manual, I conclude that read-buffer was deprecated together with write-buffer. I believe that either both should be marked or both should not. Or do I misunderstand something?

Funny regexp: /^1?$|^(11+?)\1+$/

I have found this funny regexp here, guess what it matches? Or check it with newLISP:

Code: Select all

(for (i 1 100)
  (unless (regex {^1?$|^(11+?)\1+$} (dup "1" i))
    (print i " ")))
Astonishing! ;-)

Oh, I see now, thanks! Yes, the old versions waits for 20+ seconds on closed port on any other host but local. But some my scripts have to work with localhost. ;-) So, I'll wait for a fix, and roll back to 10.2.1 meantime.
