Re: Behavior of environmental variables depending on name

You can also start your script with something like:
.dot !

"." is a special character in AmigaDOS scripts.

Re: Skippable crash on bsdsocket.library

The problem is Curl. The threaded resolver does not work because each resolver instance runs in a thread that does not open bsdsocket.library itself. It's nothing to do with running multiple network programs at the same time, although that might create the crash scenario more frequently. I thought I...

Re: PNG (icon) "blur"

Possibly related: Since OS4.1FE in NetSurf I have 1px corruption on the right and bottom edges of composited BitMaps which have also been scaled. It looks like some bug is causing the composited scaling to be the wrong size (or, at the very least, a different size to pre-OS4.1FE) Non-scaled bitmaps ...

Re: How do I query information for a link?

apparently LockTagList() might help: http://www.amigans.net/modules/xforum/v ... e=0&mode=0

I don't know if we have access to that yet, I don't have the SDK to hand although I'm sure it has been updated since 2012.

Re: CUPS Printing System to AmigaOS4

terminills was porting GutenPrint, which looked good. However I think he abandoned the OS4 version and I've not heard anything about the other versions either for ages.

Re: Leave out / Put away

The idea of Leave Out is that way because short cuts as we know them now didn't exist back in the 80s. It's not really left out, it is hidden and the icon shown on WB. The actual file is not moved (left out). Workbench doesn't have the concept of a desktop directory (which is a good thing IMHO). It...

Re: Printer Spooler

I vaguely recall writing one when I was messing around trying to get Dot4 working. Here it is: http://www.unsatisfactorysoftware.co.uk/download.php?file=dot4spool It isn't immediately obvious, but I think (after re-reading my readme several times) that using only the DEVICE tooltype should make it ...

Re: Equivalent of mmap

I don't know whether this is helpful: https://github.com/chris-y/libgit2/blob ... miga/map.c

It's rather specific to that library, but emulates the needed functionality. It rather depends what your mmap is trying to achieve.

Re: Input of unique characters

@Jaiverdir Thanks for the example. I definitely think this is the way to go. However, I am getting a guru the first time I call RawKeyConvert and then garbage from the char container. I know that I most likely am doing something wrong, but I just want to make sure that I don't have to take any spec...
