Re: Command Voice Interface

While a complete voice recognition suite like Siri etc. is a mammoth job, something closer to "voice tags" is far more feasible, where the software doesn't try to translate speech into text, but instead matches sounds it hears to a list of known sounds and reacts accordingly. VoiceAttack i...

Re: Behavior of environmental variables depending on name

Is this documented somewhere? I don't think it's specifically documented, but in general it's always been the case that special characters have to be treated carefully in AmigaDOS, especially in scripts. The documentation here talks about substitution of special characters in scripts, specifically ...

Re: Classic Memory Limits in Emulation

Kind of, yes, if the problem was not being able to detect the memory. But that's not really the problem. The target hardware doesn't support that sort of operation - Cyberstorm cards are limited to 128MB of address space in the A3000/A4000 address map, and while they could in theory map larger chunk...

Re: Even better support in emulated environments

You can assign a partition on your hard drive as swap, the instructions are included as part of the original installation guide. This swap can be used for virtual memory, though in my experience it's not 100% reliable. OS 4.1 Classic has the option to use ZorRAM boards as swap space instead since th...

Re: Even better support in emulated environments

I suspect it's unlikely to ever happen - a decision was made somewhere along the way to disable the use of Zorro-III RAM that isn't accelerator-mounted on classics due to speed, which is perfectly legitimate. But the RAM itself is recognised and supported as it can be used as swap space (check for Z...

Re: Leave out / Put away

DOpus. Browsing drawers, select a file, Leave Out. Fair enough. I think of file managers in a different way, i.e. not for managing Workbench, but purely for manipulating files, but I guess some people might like that sort of functionality. DOpus 5 of course is different, having a full shortcuts sys...

Re: Leave out / Put away

I don't mean just to leave my program's icon out, any file the users wishes. It's all the same to AmigaOS. I just want to do it with library functions instead of ARexx. I don't want to have to open the containing drawer to make it work. It's a hack. Fair enough, it's probably something that could b...

Re: Leave out / Put away

What are you trying to do? Is your program adding left out icons without user interaction? It's already possible to leave out icons using the Workbench menus via ARexx, but of course this requires the icons to be selected. I know it's frowned upon because it's not officially documented, but why not ...

Re: USB Devices "Eject"

Actually, I tested the USB MassStorage "Dismount" command and it doesn't do anything on my system. That's strange, maybe something on your system is holding a lock on whatever drive you're testing with because on my system it removes the drive from the device list. With some further testi...

Re: USB Devices "Eject"

I know that, and that's what I use personally when I want to remove a drive after writing to it. But the aim was to be able to right-click and dismount using a context-sensitive menu, which is even easier than calling up a GUI, searching for the device you want to eject and clicking the Dismount but...
