newLISP Development release 10.4.8

Postby Lutz » Thu May 09, 2013 1:28 pm

This development release introduces unlimited precision integer arithmetic and has other minor enhancements and bug fixes.

File and Changes notes: http://www.newlisp.org/downloads/development/

For maximum performance of the new unlimited precision integer arithmetic, a 64-bit compile of newLISP is recommended. More than any other area, arithmetic gains performance via a 64-bit compile. All packed binaries are 32-bit. On Windows a 64-bit compile is not yet available fro newlisp.org.

Some useful functions can be found in newlisp-10.4.8/qa-specific-tests/qa-factorfibo

Ps: translations of the manual will be updated when available.

Hello, Lutz.

While rechecking the manual, I found unlinked tags.

line 2233 and 2683
<a href="#context_objects">Programming with contexts</a>.</p>

<a href="#context_objects">Programming with contexts</a>, as well as

These may be
<a href="#pass_big">Passing data by reference</a>

<a href="#foop">Functional object-oriented programming in newLISP</a>

Regards,

Thank you, Lutz.

I finished translartiones of manual and CodePatterns.

And I inserted a <li> tag in CodePatterns.
line 137:
<li><tt>args</tt> and <tt>local</tt> used together for named variables</li>

Now, I updated newlisp_manual-10408 and CodePatterns-20130405.

There are in here.

I tried installing newLISP on my windows system and I keep getting this message when I try to open it

run shell:
Could not start C:\Program FIles(x86)\newlisp/newlisp.exe -C -w "C:\Users\Jeremy"

I've tried uninstalling newLISP and loading again but no luck. Any suggestions anyone?

This happens after one of the last Windows Java updates. Un-install Java, then reinstall the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) from the Oracle website.

Well, I am beat.

First I uninstalled Java. Then I rebooted. Then I uninstalled newLISP. Rebooted. Re-installed (Java 7 update 21, which was what was on offer from Oracle), rebooted. Re-installed newLISP.

Still get the same error.

Well, at least I have it at home on both Win 7 and Ubuntu. I am just sorry I can no longer use it at work.

Will keep watching here in case someone finds a fix that really works - there's too much work on my plate to fiddle with stuff like this.

Ok, so my work PC crashed and burned, and I now have a newer one. It had an older version of Java on it - Java 7, update 1. I installed newLISP on the machine with that old java, and it worked fine.

Then, I updated to the latest,Java 7, update 21, and the problem returned.

Does anyone know of a way to install an older JRE, so that I can get it back?

I don't get it.
Why is the development release (10.4.8) behind the stable(Production) release (10.5.0)?
