Re: Any hope for a Wayfarer browser port for OS 4?

I was more thinking of getting a start with the existing DataTypes... have an updated HTML DataType which can render pages and provide methods for a JavaScript library to modify post-load (something akin to using the DataType Class to work with two instances and integrate the results?) Then we can d...

Re: Any hope for a Wayfarer browser port for OS 4?

Why target the complete application of a web browser anyway? AmigaOS DataTypes seem to be a feasible mechanism for detaching the WebKit implimentation from the rest of the Web Browser... would it be possible to build a WebKit specific DataType with a DataTypes based Browser that explicitly handles J...

Re: Updated Python3.x series

Current Information that I am aware of... 68K builds of python work (they can be installed directly OR within E-UAE under Sys:Emulation/...) AmigaOS 4.x (I'm using 4.1FE + Update1) has a Python 2.5.x series installed as "C:Python" using an assign "Python:" which is used as "...

Updated Python3.x series

Is it possible to update python beyond the now EOL 2.x series and get a python3.x working on AmigaOS 4.x? I have repeatedly tried to build this myself from sources without any real progress. I did grab a copy of the morphos python3.4 port by yomgui but that fails to build for me as well (configure g...

Re: Sys:System/Format command split...

Ahhhh.... always thought that the Format command performed FileSystem initialization for a given partition Wasn't aware it actually handed that off to the FileSystem itself. Then a modification would be sorting out some means of extended options for specific filesystems, or some means of "setti...

Sys:System/Format command split...

Can the "Sys:System/Format" program file become a wrapper/selector for multiple "FileSystem Generator" tools? "FileSystem Generator" tools can use a standard ReadArgs() call for parameters. And the "Sys:System/Format" program can then be used to select which F...

Re: Suggestion: AmigaOS handling of foreign characters and bitmap fonts

I didn't need any special tools for Japanese Fonts... I only had to install a Unicode Extended Font of the "OpenType" format. This lets me actively view a full Hiragana (~48 symbols) Katakana (~48 symbols) and most Kanji (13000+) as defined with Codepoints in addition to Heiroglyphics and ...

Re: someone actually using the two ethernet ports on sam440ep ?

So at this time the only restiction is the device driver only supports one port, and is this specifically a software limitation? If an alternate device driver was written, can both hardware ports be accessed concurrently or is it hardware limited to a single port usable? No idea about the hardware s...

Re: Testers wanted - USB3 XHCI USBHCD

If anyone wants an Initial build of the driver or access to the source... private message me on these forums, or find me on IRC (various networks...freenode for example) using the same nickname. And I'll start putting together a means of sending out initial driver versions. Right now I have hardware...

Re: someone actually using the two ethernet ports on sam440ep ?

Just to clarify, the device driver is only software restricted to using one port right?

If someone was to write a replacement (or a team member modifies the existing driver...) the second port doesn't have any hardware restrictions stopping it from being used concurrently right?
