Re: java message on GS load

For information:

I never got around to replacing the java that comes with Ubuntu. Then I upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 a few days ago. After the upgrade, the java error messages no longer appear when loading newLISP GS IDE server. Saved me the trouble.

Re: newlisp-ide-4.6.tgz (updated 2010-04-21)

Thanks very much. Happily using it now. This is very unusual - I wish I had thought of it! Nor have I seen any other scripting languages with anything like it. By the way, is there any equivalent newLISP library to Common Lisp's WHO (with-html-output) library? I have been writing little shortcuts to...

newlisp-ide-4.6.tgz (updated 2010-04-21)

Good day everyone.

Clicking
newlisp-ide-4.6.tgz (updated 2010-04-21)
on the apps link in newlisp.org results in s a 404 error. Is this a temporary problem, or is this browser based IDE no longer available?

java message on GS load

Greetings. I get a strange message on loading the ide (after typing "newlisp-edit") on terminal command line: (java:3058): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap", It doesn't seem to harm anything. I am merely curious, and don't know the first thing about java. Distro ...

Re: post-url in place of curl with couchdb?

Thanks for these tips, Lutz. I did indeed end up using put-url. The curl -v tip is a good one. I saw the option, and just somehow neglected to invoke it. And thanks too to Kirill. I was not aware of the curl newlisp libary. I will soldier on with these suggestions, and see how things go.

Re: post-url in place of curl with couchdb?

Oops. Spoke too soon. It does not work when admin is set. But creates databases fine when no admin is set.

Re: post-url in place of curl with couchdb?

After re-entering an admin, this worked:

Code: Select all

(set 'the-db "http://127.0.0.1:5984/mynewdbthree")
(set 'auth  "user=my_admin_name&password=my_password" )
(set 'encode "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" )
(put-url the-db auth encode 8000)
(exit)
Many thanks to Ryon.

Re: post-url in place of curl with couchdb?

Thanks, I will try your suggestion. I had a great chuckle at your notion of me curling up and getting some REST this April. There will be none of that for me until I get this right! Further to the last experience: I deleted the admin = secretpassword from /etc/couchdb/local.ini, so that "everyone is...

Re: post-url in place of curl with couchdb?

(sleep) hasn't helped yet. I tried this (attempting to create "mydatabase") with couchdb server running: (set 'the-db {http://admin:password@localhost:5984/mydatabase}) (post-url the-db {} {8000}) (sleep 8000) (exit) the response to the above was: "ERR: DNS resolution failed" If the admin:password b...

post-url in place of curl with couchdb?

Hello: I'm trying to figure out how to write to couchdb using REST: command line syntax for creating a database is: curl -X PUT http://127.0.0.1:5984/mydatabase With newLISP, will post-url achieve the same thing? I have tried, but there's no response, and the database does not show up in Futon. Can ...

Re: newLISP on Snow Leopard

Thanks, Hilti. Now, I had not thought of that, but that was probably "it". I use a 3G dongle. Now that you mention it, I dimly recall getting a software upgrade for the dongle, and it most likely WAS that that made the difference, and fixing that made OS X appear to load without problems from then o...

Re: newLISP on Snow Leopard

I see it is a year ago, and I have not thanked Lutz for his kind reply. Strangely, after I wrote about my problem, some few logins later, the splash logo thing happened as usual, followed by a perfectly unaided IDE opening without me even entering "newlisp-edit" in a terminal. Go figure. I did nothi...

Re: newLISP on Snow Leopard

I tried to install newlisp on my new Mac mini today. Everything reports ok, but all I get is the logo: the editor doesn't open. Can someone help? I have checked, and Java 1.6 is running.

Thanks

Re: sqlite3 problem "no such table"

Thanks very much. I had started with the full path, and had the same problem, that's why I changed it. But I will try again.

Strangely, I can't get the 'Periodic table' from the NewLisp introduction to work either.

thanks again.

sqlite3 problem "no such table"

Hi I am learning NewLisp: having imported data (csv) into Sqlite3, I can work fine within the Firefox and Sqlite3Explorer tools. However from within Newlisp IDE, the error reported is "no such table: MonFriDown". As I say, the table is there, and usable: in NewLisp, database opens ok. Code follows: ...
