Re: Hollywood programs listed anywhere?

Is there anywhere on this site (or elsewhere) that Hollywood developers can list their programs made with Hollywood? It would be great to be able to search through a long list of everything that has been created with Hollywood, or at least the programs that are complete, and their developers want t...

Re: SendRexxCommand(): Issues with quotes in the command

RXCmd might do some own magic there, maybe it encapsulates the line automatically.. and * is the escape character in the shell, so it's used when launched directly from the shell prompt... but if you write an ARexx script and try to use this from there, you'll have to do the same way like in Hollywo...

Re: SendRexxCommand(): Issues with quotes in the command

And to get ' included in the texts (for example with "don't" words etc), convert ' characters to double ':

Code: Select all

str$=ReplaceStr(str$, "'", "''")
(before the previous line of course)

Re: SendRexxCommand(): Issues with quotes in the command

I think it's ARexx itself that gets confused. Try putting the whole string inside other kinds of quotes (if you use " in the string, put it in ', or vice versa).

Try adding this before your debugprint line:

Code: Select all

str$="'" .. str$ .. "'"

Re: There is a way to detect how long a key is pressed?

Although the previous example has some busy loops which you should always avoid :) Add at least some waits there... Or you could do it by events like this: Function p_Input(msg) Switch msg.Action Case "OnMouseDown": StartTimer(1) Case "OnMouseUp": DebugPrint("Mouse was pressed for " .. GetTimer(1) ....

Re: How to properly release something out to the wild

Maybe we should approach Andreas to change Hollywoods plug in loader to a behaviour that Hollywood only loads the plugins actually listed by @require? That wouldn't be good, because some of the plugins are like datatypes, and user can add them to get programs support new formats without having to g...

Re: trying to get cells name from table and make that cell be empty table

I would do it like this, if I understood what you're after... table_names = {"Andreas", "Allanon", "SamuraiCrow"} table_another = {} table_another[table_names[0]] = {} DebugPrint(ListItems(table_another["Andreas"])) ; Works DebugPrint(ListItems(table_another.Andreas)) ; Fails If you want to use "tab...

Re: How to properly release something out to the wild

I have taken an approach to bundle all the required plugins in the program directory that I distribute. Hollywood finds them there and no installation is needed. I personally don't want the plugins to be installed globally, because then they get loaded by all Hollywood programs even though they won'...

Re: Hollywood 8: Supremacy out now!

I don't know if there are many users outside Amiga community using Hollywood, or has it got any coverage on mainstream media, but I would see it'd be important to get more users there. It doesn't matter on which platform users are and it would benefit us all. Maybe we could try to help to spread the...

Re: WaitLeftMouse takes 4 seconds to react on m68k

I tried your example on my A1200/060/P96 machine, and didn't notice any delays. The two lines printed instantly when I clicked around.
