Re: Implicit creation of contexts not working newlisp 10.5.3

Hello, I've just tried it: ------------------------------- newLISP v.10.5.1 32-bit on Win32 IPv4/6 libffi, options: newlisp -h > (define (D:foo x y) (+ x y)) (lambda (x y) (+ x y)) > (D:foo 3 5) 8 > ------------------------------- However, if D is already defined as something else, it fails. I think...

Not news!

Hello Lutz,

This section is becoming a bit contaminated with non-news, I reckon. Some moving to do, maybe?

Re: newlisp can be compiled ?

Oops, this post is in the wrong section of the Forum.

newLISP scripts cannot be compiled, only executed. It can be supplied with a script address on the command line, though, which it will load and interpret automatically. Search the forum for advice on running stand-alone scripts.

dynamic 'local' symbols in functions, and the symbol table

I have only just realised that the temporary symbols such as the x in: (dolist (x some-list) ... ) are actually persistent and remain to be listed later by (symbols). If this dolist is in a definition, then subsequently deleting 'x results in the definition failing next time it is used. If there was...

Colon hic

Thanks Lutz, much obliged. I knew it was me (so I got that bit right).
A lesson soundly learned.

colon in text file causes hiccups

Me again already. If test.lsp is reduced to: (set 'infile (open (main-args 2) "r")) (close infile) Then I still get the result: ERR: symbol expected : "a_label:" And back into the command line. Seems like newLISP is reading the contents of the file without being asked. :( I know it must be me, it al...

colon in text file causes hiccups

What am I doing wrong here? I saved this very short program as 'test.lsp': (set 'infile (open (main-args 2) "r")) (print (read-line infile) "\n") (close infile) It is in a directory with this very short file called 'test.txt': a_label: If I run this on the Windows console command line: newlisp test....

Yes, only this week, after updating Opera. But I just changed to subSilver style - OK. Changed back to Avalanche - OK too.

So I'll mumble 'emergent behaviour', tyr to look profound and walk slowly away...

Forum message lines not wrapping

Is it me? Quite a lot of messages are very difficult to read. There seems to be no line wrapping, making the page very wide sometimes. Is there some forum setting I should adjust? I am using Opera (9.26) on Win2000sp4, in case that matters.

Thanks for the attention, Lutz. Everything in the newLISP files was already as you expected. Changing the guiserver.lsp jar invocation line from this: (set 'server-path (string "\"" (env "PROGRAMFILES") "/newlisp/guiserver.jar\"")) to this: (set 'server-path (string "javaw.exe -jar " "\"" (env "PROG...

Well, I spoke too soon :( Got the right javaw.exe, and the GUI runs fine, but trying any demo file fails with Java not finding 'main'. newlisp outputs this: > (lambda (gs:id gs:action) (net-send gs:out (string "frame-closed " gs:id " " gs:action "\n"))) I'll keep poking about, but if it is something...

Thanks for the reply Lutz. The links were already in fact correct, and the laptop used C: anyhow. This worked: F:\WINNT\system32\javaw.exe -jar "F:\Program Files\newlisp\guiserver.jar" 47011 newlisp-edit.lsp /local/newLISP128.png from the icon but not the Run box or dosbox. Turned out that the Windo...

Cannot run newLISP-GS, Win2000Pro, Java cannot find main

I'm a newcomer to newLISP, but you seem a friendly bunch so I feel brave enough to ask this: I installed newLISP without fiddling with any of the standard instalation. newLISP.exe itself runs just fine, but newLISP-GS, launched from the icon or a command line just gets a complaint from Java that it ...
