I uploaded a new demo-exe of the release demo to my plugin-page:

http://hpwickern.bei.t-online.de/anmeld ... SPDemo.zip

Based on hpwNewLISP.nbp 1.04 with multiple restart-feature for hpwNewLispCall.
Global neobook var [hpwNewLispRestartCall] contains the current Lisp-call.
In the first nl-restart-call [hpwNewLispRestartCall] is set by the interface and then it can be set from Lisp to call other functions.

Code: Select all

;; define the error handling routine 
(define (error-handler) (print "ERR:" (error-number) " " (error-text))) 

;; set it as the error-event 
(error-event 'error-handler) 

(foo) => 

ERR:20 invalid function : (foo) 
When this would work in the DLL, I could check for starting 'ERR:' and set neobook's global [LastError].

It was not enabled in the DLL, but is working and tested now. Look for a new newlisp.dll.rc2 in the development directory.

Thanks for the fast fix.
Works now as expected.
Have to work on the 1.05 now when time will allow.

Based on hpwNewLISP.nbp 1.05 with a customised error-handler in newlisp is now connected with the neobook error-handling via [LastError]

So an error in newlisp pops up the neobook error meassage window.

My IBASIC program using the dll (rc2) isn't finding the ini.lsp

(setq aa "set by ini")

The Ibasic prog is the read-eval-loop as above
I get after start-up:
>(print aa)
OUT:nilnil
>

The program is running as an interpreted session from within the IDE but from
what I can see all files are in the one directory.
greping source code (7.3.17) gives:
C:\newlisp\newlisp_7317>grep "ini.lsp" *.c

C:\newlisp\newlisp_7317>grep "init.lsp" *.c
newlisp.c:#define INIT_FILE "init.lsp"
newlisp.c:#define INIT_FILE "/usr/share/newlisp/init.lsp"

C:\newlisp\newlisp_7317>

but changing the file to init.lsp doesn't change anything.

What am I missing? Any tips?
Can I check what path the dll is calling home?

Just a thought would the spaces in the path cause problems?
ie ...Program Files... etc

Hi Nigel,

Should that be init.lsp? newLISP.dll called from NeoBook via Hans-Peter's hpwNewLisp plug-in is loading my just-now-created init.lsp file.

yes! init.lsp not ini.lsp

The init.lsp should be in the current directory of the program importing newlisp.dll.

yes you can check the path newlisp.dll is calling home doing this from your importing program.

dllEvalStr "(directory)"

this will return a list of files in the directory where newlisp.dll is expecting the init.lsp

I found that the problem in finding the init.lsp file was that the shortcut to start Ibasic.exe (that had been created by the installer) had the "Start in" directory set incorrectly
- it was pointing to a non-existant subdirectory so the "Start in" directory
defaulted to C:\.
Once the "Start in" directory is correctly speciifed everything works fine.
I'll let Pyxia know about the install error.

I have released hpwNewLISP 1.06:

Features:

Action: hpwNewLispCall - 1.Parameter for DLL-Path removed!
Action: hpwSetNewLispDir - Set DLL-Path one time in the pub!
Support for Custom-plugin commands. Definitions in file neoLISP.cmd!
nb_util.lsp renamed to init.lsp which is automaticly loaded by newLISP.
iSEDQuickPDF.lsp with all import functions for iSEDQuickPDF.dll
Final newLISP.dll 7.400


This has no effekt to the lisp-functionality. But neobook users can define their own neosript-command via a text-file which are then send to newlisp.dll. Offers better integration in the neobook action-editor.

I uploaded the last demo-exe of the release demo to the neobook resource site:

This will save space for the plugin-pages.

Uploaded 'sqlite.lsp' bindings for the SQLite database. Works on Friday's upload of newLISP version 7.4.7, which can import libraries compiled for 'cdecl' calling conventions. Also tested on LINUX and FreeBSD. With this file and the new 'cdecl' parameter in newLISP 'import' you don't need a separate wrapper DLL on Win32.

This library import is also a good demo what to do with things like 'char *** pazValue' or 'char **pzErrmsg'. Nested multiple pointers can all be handled with the right mixture of 'get-integer' and 'get-string'.

SQLite fits very good to newLISP, because it is small and 'in process' so it doesn't need a separate database server running. The generated databases are binary compatible on all platforms. Seems to be the ideal database if MySQL still seems to be too much for the task.

Lutz,

I aggree with all points. Good example of the new import-feature.

I think you should have made a new thread, because it is not newlisp.dll related alone. It is an important improvement for its own.

Yes, probably should have made a new thread. Dou you (or anybody else) have any longer experience with SQLite? I mean what do you think about reliablility, speed etc.?

I want to move a newLISP project with about 20,000 records in a flat text file to SQLite. the flat text file works well, but processing is kind of clumsy, because I cannot use SQL for doing the reports.

Also to an earlier question of yours: newLISP is mainly my hobby but I also use it for work related stuff. For my areas of work see my homepage at nuevatec.com.

Just upload hpwNewLISP 2.25:

http://www.hpwsoft.de/anmeldung/html1/n ... ook14.html

Action: hpwNewLispDebug - Output debug info from newLISP into neobook debug window.

hpwNewLispDebug is a dummy action which does really nothing.
The newLISPer/neobooker can use it to publish debug-info to the debug window.
