Online help CubicIDE MorphOS

Post by tolkien »

I have a problem with de CubicIde addon 9.1 in MorphOS (3.17 version in powerbook and powermac)
If I press F1 under a command I get the online Help but the debugger logtool from morphOS showns a hit.
I quit the online help and try F1 with other command with no response.

Dont know if it happends with the previous version.

Can anyone check that in other morphos system?

Did that happen with previous versions as well or only with 9.1?

Would need to test again with previous version.
Is there a way to download from anywhere?

Tried with plugin 9.0 and 9.1 for CubicIDE (in both cases with HW9.1) and both have the same behaviour as reported by tolkien. Logtool shows hits.
PowerBook 5.2 MorphOS 3.15
PowerBook 5.8 MorphOS 3.15
Amiga 1200 BPPC/BVision AOS4.1 FE

I can reproduce it as well but this could also be a MorphOS bug since it doesn't happen on OS4 and the binaries are the same on MorphOS and OS4. Since CubicIDE is only available for 68k, so is the Hollywood plugin for it. The problem is that I can't really debug it because the actual plugin code was written by Dietmar Eilert almost 15 years ago and I don't have the source code. The actual plugin has never seen any change. It is the same since the very first release of the Hollywood plugin for Cubic.

Yes, could be a MorphOS bug.
I have tried it in an old powerbook with morphos 3.14 but hollywood 8 and it works fine.
Cant upgrade to hollywood 9 cos this powerbook is failing.

Will try to explain the problem in morphzone but something changed between morphos 3.14 and 3.17 that is not correct anymore.

Thanks emeck for trying.

Edit:
Not a hollywood problem. It happends with the c/c++ cubicide plugin too.

Interesting but of course the question still remains why it doesn't work with the normal Rexx commands. Still looks like a MorphOS bug to me. Have you reported it to the MorphOS devs?

I think also it is a morphos bug and have reported but they needs more accurate debug log (there is no hit in the debug log tool as such).
Perhaps will try again this weekend.
