Re: newlisp -x does not play well with -m or -s

I like Ralph idea "In any case, it would be nice if -m and -s options also could be provided in the source; e.g. as some variant of reset." The ability to provide a "modified" (main-args) to the (reset) function just might do the trick. either as a modified main-args list (reset '("-s10240" "-m10"))...

In the following example (fix-args) fixes the main-arg offset problem with using input args with -x linked programs.

newlisp -x does not play well with -m or -s

problem: newlisp -x linked programs can eat all available memory, blow their stack and DOS a system unless they are constrained. With -m and -s not playing nice with -x, constraint is hard to achieve. test.lsp (println "maxheap " (sys-info 1) " maxstack " (sys-info 5)) (exit) newlisp -x test.lsp tes...

Re: help needed accessing a password protected samba shares

solved my problem on windows side with:

(define (login-share sharepath username password)
(exec (string "net use " sharepath " /user:" username " " password)))

for the UNIX equivalent ... I expect I will use smbclient to do the same sort of thing.
