Foreign Keyboard Report

I just got back this afternoon from Ensenada, Mexico, which also has the "/" character moved to a different place on the keyboard. But they do have nice weather -- warm and sunny!

OT

As long as we are wandering off topic, have you been to the Mystery Spot, Lutz? http://www.mysteryspot.com/ The "shack" was fairly easy to figure out, as was the plank with the ball rolling "uphill", but I'm still puzzled about how you can have two people of the same height facing each other one way...

Understandability

I am in favor of the minimal and elegant set of functions, which could then be used to build a set or sets of extension functions to be loaded separately. Clean. Well-factored. Understandable. The functions could then be optimized by re-writing at a lower level, if necessary for performance reasons,...

Hans-Peter:

Please contact me at spambait@www.com about the trouble you are having with the ftp. I'd like to be sure it is working properly.

I was going to post the Tcl/Tk demo for pulldowns here, but it is just too large. I will put it on ftp://64.81.83.233/software/ for you. Note that this machine is not online 24/7, and that you will need to use an FTP client.

Tk

To get a really comprehensive set of examples, try loading Tcl/Tk. You can look how the pulldowns are done in that scripting language, then translate it into newLISP.

Hmmm. I see what you mean now. I cannot reach those Tcl sites either. Let's hope this is just temporary!

Off-topic Forth rant

There is a simplicity in Goku that I like. I can look at the code and understand at least generally what the machine is going to do. I am still struggling with Lisp. You use variables and locals in your Goku examples that I am sure you would not use in production code. This complicates the code some...

Two stacks? RPN? You're dangerously close to a description of Forth. Implement that just half as well as you have written newLISP, and I'm sure you would have another fan club with REALLY fanatic followers!

RS-232 ?

Is there a way to access the RS-232 port from newLISP? Is it as easy as using device to redirect I/O or would a new function have to be written?

I agree! I was looking for a language that had extensions for networking and GUI programming on the Windows platform, that was NOT C++, or Java. I guess it's a personal thing, but I just can't think in that family of languages. Forth would have been perfect, but there are no implementations of Forth...

We all knew I was doing something wrong, but what? Well, it turns out I had the 6.5.8 version of newLISP installed. I did an "upgrade" recently, and must have installed this older version instead of the newly-downloaded one. I am embarrassed and sorry for the trouble this has caused!!! The IDE works...

Lutz, I think your last suggestion exposes the problem: - make sure, that 'write-process' or 'exec' (the same thing) works on your OS installation; try (write-process "dir") or (exec "dir") from the command line of the newlisp executable (not from the tk-frontend) (write-process "dir") from the comm...

I'm using Windows 2000, and am logged on as administrator. Something as simple as permissions could prevent the program from working properly, and it's something the Win user usually doesn't consider, thanks.

I'm doing a reinstall, by the numbers. Stay tuned.

Thanks Eddie, but it still isn't working. I understand that this part of the code creates a string, newlisp file-frame.cgi > c:\temp\pcgi (or whatever) to be used along with another string name=data/ as arguments for the next term write-process . The strings are created, but the pcgi file is not. Th...

The client requests three GETs: GET / HTTP/1.1 GET /file-frame.cgi?name=data/ HTTP/1.1 GET /editor-frame-new.html HTTP/1.1 I confirmed this with a (print buff) in net-server-accept .

I should have noticed the semicolons in the listing, Lutz. Sorry. Fortunately, the default is set correctly for Windows users like me. But the problem remains: I get an "Error: 400 Cannot handle request" in the left frame when trying to use the IDE. The server itself is functional, it will serve the...

httpd

I might be having a related problem. The httpd documentation for Windows says "In the file 'httpd' line 140/41 should be changed." though it doesn't say to what. Line 140 is: "\r\n\r\n")) and line 141 is a blank line. I don't see any nearby code that might need changing.
