Subject: QT initialization on OS X 10.2
From: Kurt Kaufman <kkaufman at snet.net>

Reply-To: use-revolution at lists.runrev.com

Under 10.2, RR's QT initialization seems to work more effectively.
Whereas, under 10.1, a QT version check would not do a thing in terms
of speeding up the subsequent initial call to QT (resulting in a
spinning beachball), under 10.2.....no wait and no more beachball.
Also, unrelated but interesting, under OS 10.2/QT 6, the QT musical
instruments (Roland samples) have been modified such that there is
always a slight reverb (apparently more pronounced at the end of a MIDI
sequence, for example, or maybe just more audible at that point since
there are no more notes being played).

Subject: Rev & XP
Reply-To: use-revolution at lists.runrev.com

The Rev web site states:

"Revolution supports these platforms for both development and deployment:

Mac OS 7.1 and later

Mac OS X

Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000"

etc etc


--Questions

1. Does the current libUrl work ok all the way back to Mac OS 7.1?

2. Windows XP is not listed, any particular reason why? Does Rev work as well
on XP as the other Windows?

TIA

sims

Hi Sylvain,

Try putting this in your stack script:

on sendAllCards pMessage
  repeat with i = 1 to the number of cards \
  of this stack
    send pMessage to card i of this stack
  end repeat
end sendAllCards

Now you can use sendAllCards to accomplish your goal.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.

The text file approach is completed and just about finished testing;
so I'll stick with it for now.  However, I always consider a message
from you as a word to the wise; so I'll try to find time to check out
the issues you raise.

The issue here is the complexity of gathering and storing individual
files from an unknown number of folders nested to an unknown number
of levels.  I am happy working with individual files, and will leave
that issue to someone who wants to build a commercial archiver

You are certainly correct if that need arises.  (I'm already
capturing creation & modification dates even though decompress does
nothing with that info presently.)

Its not a problem: I don't search for a delimiter to find the end of
the data fork and the beginning of the resource fork: I save the byte
length of the data fork in the footer.  The footer format is creation
date in seconds [10 char], modification date in seconds [10]char,
creator/file type [8 char],end of fixed header ["#"], and the length
of the data fork.


The only parsing done is to read backwards from char -1 until "#".
Once that position (& with it the length of the data fork) is known,
the position of each element in the file is known as well.

Reply-To: use-revolution at lists.runrev.com

With many thanks to Jan Schenkel and Klaus Major for their helpful
suggestions, I have solved my Windows installation blues (except for those
200 CD's I already burned!!!)

I modified the "startup" handler in the stand-alone app using Shell to run a
.BAT file (if it exists) to reset the read-only attributes of the data
stacks, and then delete the .BAT file.

I also created a simple Windows installer app -- using revcopyfolder,
revdeletefolder (to reinstall), specialfolderpath, and the same shell
routine to run and then delete the .BAT file to reset the read-only
attributes.

Both solutions -- the installer and the startup routine in case someone
bypasses the installer -- work, so many thanks!

If anyone would be interested in looking at the simple installer stack (Bill
Lynn?) I'd be happy to email it or upload it someplace. Although it is set
up for Windows, it could easily be modified (simplified) for the Mac.

Bob,

I would be very interested in looking at your simple installer stack.
