Hello, Lutz.

Anaphoric if is great!

I finished the translartion of v.10.5.6's manual.

newlisp_manual-10506

And,

line 15481
<p><tt>if</tt> also sets the anaphoric syztem variable <tt>$it</tt> to the value
system?

line 25238-25247
<p>All members in <em>list</em> are sorted in ascending order.
Anything may be sorted, regardless of the types.
When members are themselves lists, each list element
is recursively compared. Arrays in <em>array</em> are
sorted as if they were lists.
If two expressions
of different types are compared, the lower type is sorted
before the higher type in the following order:</p>

<p>When sorting an <em>array</em> sort works as if sorting
a list.</p>
Either first or second in bold might be not necessary.

If second would be remained,
p25246
<p>When sorting an <em>array</em> <tt>sort</tt> works as if sorting
Maybe.

Thanks,

Thanks Johu, the new translation is online:

but I could only find the syztem spelling error and not the misplaced <b]sort bold quotes. Did you work using the latest newlisp_manial.html 10.5.6, as posted yesterday?

Thank you for response, Lutz.

And I'm sorry, my explanation was not enough and using bold-tags had been wrong.

Then, I will be more careful.

Thanks for the great work Johu! I wish we had translations into more languages, but it is a lot of work. When printed, the manual is now over 300 pages long.

Lutz, does the FFI implementation in newlisp really need to depend on version 3.0.10 or later?

I did some digging, and it seems libffi 3.0.9 is fine, but breaks not only on OpenBSD, but also on Solaris and NetBSD. So far those platforms are sticking with 3.0.9, but adding patches to make it support various hardware architectures.

Was the shift from 3.0.9 to 3.0.10 that big, or could there be some way of supporting 3.0.9?

Judging from your error messages on OpenBSD with libffi 3.0.9, it looks like the current code in newLISP needs some functions which are not available in 3.0.9. But if you say, you could make 3.0.9 work with newLISP on other platforms, then the OpenBSD problem perhaps is of different nature?

On this page: https://sourceware.org/libffi/ version 3.0.13 is listed as working with OpenBSD. That sounds like 30.0.13 should be installable on OpenBSD? 3.0.9 was released in December 2009. Stefan Sonnenberg, who wrote the initial libffi support in newLISP, based it on 3.0.10 released in August 2011.

I guess to update the OpenBSD port of newlisp now I'll have to help the maintainers of libffi too. Ok. sigh. Hopefully I get it done in time for the big stable release of newlisp.

Have you checked if libffi support is enabled? I know a while ago they updated libffi to one that works with newLisp. I haven't had time or energy to update my OpenBSD build server, so I haven't been able to test this.
