Actually, if I ever get to the installer finalized to the point I wanted it, installing a typical software package would be a single line of Python code. I don't think that this would a serious issueChrisH wrote:@chris
I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't use the Lisp-based installer because it's another (and quite strange!) language to learn, and I'd rather use that time for programming. I guess if I make enough things that need an installer, then I might be able to justify learning it...
Installing using Python would not help in this case, since I don't know it either! I guess it would be nice if there was some installer system based upon C. If it was done using an AmigaOS library, then it could be exposed to any programming language you wanted (including interpreted languages with some extra effort). Just a thought anyway.
