Troubles in Commodity-land

Hi As the title is not very informative, I'll try and make it more clear. Use of ICommodities->CxFilter("rawmouse leftbutton"); generates a BADFILTER errorcode. I tried to fathom the severity of the error and wrote the following little proggy: #include <proto/exec.h> #include <proto/dos.h> #include ...

Where has IDOS->CurrentDir() gone?

Hi,

As the title indicates said function seems not to be part of the dos library anylonger. What has it been replaced with?
Also there is no mentioning ot this in dos-obsolete.

Re: Menuclass localization hook: also empty result

@nbache Is there a list available with 'preferred shortcuts'? Like these ones used in virtually all textrelated software: RAmiga+C = Copy, RAmiga+X = Cut and RAmiga+V = Insert (or is it: Amiga+C = Copy, Amiga+X = Cut and Amiga+V = Insert)? Some programs use a plethora of shortcuts and mostly nobody ...

Re: Internet prefs

Keeping a system partition clean by write-protecting it is a highly recommended move. No it isn't, unless you want an actively broken system. Environment variable wont work, appdir wont work, internet prefs wont work (you wonr be able to setup new serveices etc). Ah, now I know why my Micro never r...

Re: Listbrowser with autosort; restore original content

@LyleHazel
...whenever I am comparing a variable to a constant, I always put the constant
first. That way if I make this mistake, I get an error instead of a warning.
When "Green is Grass", remember? Makes a hell of a lot more sense to me now... ;)

Re: Stack 'Used' shown in Ranger/SysMon diffs

@colinw Another way *MIGHT* be to find the programs Task structure and on a continuous base check the value of its stackpointer, thereby remembering the highest value reached. Ouch, all sorts of statistics could be gotten from this. Hm, I really need an Amiga soonish to sort this kind of thing out. ...

Re: Stack 'Used' shown in Ranger/SysMon diffs

If I remember correctly, I used to fill the entire stack from the unused side upto the stackpointer with uint32's containing 0xDEADBEEF. When the program has finished it is a matter of measuring the heap of dead beef that remains. Can't tell you the exact specs as my Micro is out of order since a ye...
