Networking!

Post by Trenatos »

Absolutely at the top of my wishlist.

Networking with priority on html post/get and FTP, second priority on sockets for network gaming.

If Hollywood had networking support I think it could get an even bigger following.

A fully featured network library with lowlevel TCP/UDP access as well as easy functions for downloading from HTTP and FTP sources and uploading to FTP is coming with the next version.

How do you handle updates with Hollywood?
Free updates until a major release? Small cost for updates?
(If I purchase now, will I have access to the next version for free, or at a charge?)

Normally major updates have to be paid for but there have also been exceptions, for example the 4.5 to 4.7 upgrade was free albeit a major one.

For those who don't want to wait until the next Hollywood release:

There are already possibilites to use some network stuff with Hollywood.

At least, if there is a device for it.

You could open TCP: device with OpenFile and do some lowlevel stuff.

You could install FTPMount and then read/write using FTP: device and OpenFile.
On OS4 you even could install http-handler and read and even write (WebDAV) from/to http resources.

And you could normal OS API, too.
There is rxgen.library, an ARexx library that works as an interface to any shared library. And there is tghe possibility to run ARexx Code from within Hollywood. Both in combination could do the job.

Or use Curl or Wget like I do in Jack.

Having integrated network support in Hollywood would be pretty awesome. :)
