Error in newLISP-GS

In newLISP-GS I have 2 tabs: 1. untitled.lsp (not used) 2. fip.lsp (used) When I needed to temporarily cut a part from src in tab 2, I clicked on tab 1 to paste it there. When clicking on tab 1 I get: select-text-tab-4BA94169-1423-4038-BDBF-F6363D38791A 105 0: Could not invoke method select-text wit...

newLISP-GS does not work in Windows 10 with Java 9

I found an earlier report about this, but it does not seem to be solved yet.
When reverting back to Java 8 everything is just fine.

Can I be of any help to find the culprit?

Kind regards,
Arie

Created an include script

I discovered the hard way that, when creating a Windows executable, only the 1 script mentioned will be part of that executable, so (load "script.lsp") will only be satisfied at run time of the exe, and not at generate time. Because I wanted to create executables having (load ...) in them, I created...

Remove problem with main-args in script vs executable

Maybe somebody is interested in the code below. The main function is to show the contents of the Windows path, line by line. You may specify a search string on the comaand line to filter the output. More important is the separate code for a function which takes care of the difference in command line...

Re: main-args different result for executable (Solved)

I found the reason why it failed.
Mainargs did return nil in case "newlisp" was not found. Just a stupid error.
Sorry for bothering you.

But very nice that it is possible to load stuff and still create one executable in the go!

Thanks for being patient with me ;-)

Re: main-args different result for executable

I forget to mention important info:
- if run as a script it works
- if run as an executable it does not work

(BTW I'll have to check for both "newlisp" and "newlisp.exe".)

Re: main-args different result for executable

So, I tried this out. I have this code: (define (mainargs) (let (osargs (main-args)) (if (= (lower-case (osargs 0)) "newlisp") (1 osargs)))) And the main code: (load "mainargs.lsp") (define (showpath myargs) (let (pathlist (parse (lower-case (env "PATH")) ";") osargs (mainargs)) (println "===>" osar...

Re: main-args different result for executable

Maybe a dumb answer to self:
IF the first argument is the string "newlisp" it should always be a script.

main-args different result for executable

Hi,

I discovered that (logically) the first os commandline parameter "newlisp" is missing from (main-args) when run from an executable.

Is it possible to detect if a script is run as a script or as an executable?
That way it would be easier to test properly for both cases!

TIA,
Arie

Kudos - newLISP amazingly suited for small tools

Since long I am a fan of languages that aren't bloatware. By that I mean they have a (very) small footprint on disk and often installing isn't even necessary. In my quest I encountered a few: - newLISP (in the past I dabbled a bit in it - no serious work) - Rebol (used that a lot) - Red ( red-lang.o...

Hi,

wouldn't it be nice to add 2 sections:

It seems there is no right section for this currently.

The future of newLISP

Hi,
just curious!
I am wondering if Lutz is the only developer of newLISP.
Are there any plans for the near and farther development future of newLISP.
