Re: newLisp vs node.js

I've been trying out the new Node.js-based editor, Atom.io. There's a lot to like about it, but the central problem is that it's slowish - it struggles with loading new documents, for example. Perhaps we all spend so much time waiting in web browsers anyway, it's not a problem... :) I also tried it...

Re: Guiserver again

This problem sorted itself out somehow. I'm on Ubuntu 16.04. I installed newLISP from the download. After not getting the GuiServer to work, I left things for these few months, & had my newLISP fun on windows. Then, I found a post on how to install Oracle Java on Ubuntu 16.04. I followed that, & the...

Re: Guiserver again

Setting NEWLISPDIR does not help:
NEWLISPDIR=/usr/local/share/newlisp
export NEWLISPDIR
is what I do.

The java problem remains.

Thanks for the NEWLISPDIR tip. I will try setting that. However, this java response has dogged me for days: any attempt to call java results in this response in the terminal: The program 'java' can be found in the following packages: * default-jre * gcj-4.9-jre-headless * gcj-5-jre-headless * openjd...

Hi all. With a new installation of Ubuntu 15.04, I installed java (not the jre that comes with ubuntu) from Oracle, as shown in the downloads page. The result is that the java executable is found at /usr/bin/java/jre1.8.0_77/bin/java I then created a link, with sudo ln -s /usr/bin/java/jre1.8.0_77/b...

Re: HTML Tag functions?

I tried the changes suggested by xytotron (replacing \026 with \001), without success. It still runs fine directly from newLISP or in Scite, which calls newLISP switched as follows: newlisp -n -c -s 400000 Since it runs fine from newLISP without setting a stack size, I haven't tried to find or fiddl...

Re: HTML Tag functions?

Interesting. Just gets curiouser and curiouser. On my Win 7 Dell at home, ran sxmlhtml.lsp in Scite: it ran perfectly, and produced test.html without a hitch. But newLISP GS editor produced exactly the error found on my Crunchbang 64 bit box.

Some time ago, one of the frequent contributors posted some code showing how to do HTML tags. I think it was in a context for each tag. Since bookmarking that, my hard disk died, and some bookmarks with it, though I had copies of all the main stuff. Please can someone point me to this post, or the c...

Re: crunchbang crypto library and sqlite3

What I can say is that /usr/lib, on my 64 bit Crunchbang system, has no files named "librypt" anything at all. I think my biggest problem was that I was editing the wrong file list, ie. inserting the crypto file names into the file list in sqlite3.lsp, instead of the file list in crypto.lsp. Both li...

While trying to use sqlite3 in an app that needs the crypto library, I get a warning "can't find crypto library". On Crunchbang linux, there are a few "crypt" files in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu directory: libcrypt.so, libcrypt.so.1.0.0, libcrypt.a the first is a symlink, as follows: lrwxrwxrwx 1 roo...
