Not sure about doing the install for the app, probably easier to leave it for the users though I guess the choice wouldn't hurt.

Might have to expand the DLL list, currently playing around with installing NSPR and NSS as I've been updating the certs, which brings up the problem of readonly files. I used make install to install which left the NSPR DLLs set to readonly. If doing make package, IIRC, the NSPR DLLs and the LDAP DLLs are left readonly.
Lster I'll insert a few line to create some (unverified) FF/SM/TB objects too. Without folder icons and other artwork. Installing is easy, and you can delete that section of code easily. Basicly the question and a few SysCreateObject-lines per product. We're already in the right directory, and the right Mozilla product was already detected for the *TURBO.EXE.

Without NSPR and NSS in my (test) install directory tree of just your repackaged Mozilla products, I had to execute ATTRIB -R *60* to cover all readonly DLLs (FTTOMH LDAP60, LDIF60 & PRLDAP60). But readonly should't no problem. With the DIR-command of Rexx, SysFileTree, you can query and set file attributes.

I'll actually use a more clear list of DLLs near the beginning of the Rexx code, without having to decrease or increase some counters if you'd append NSPR and NSS.

I'll also insert code to mark all qualifying readonly DLLs as non-readonly during the ABOVE512/HIGMEM phase, if a DLL is readonly. With ABOVE512 it's possible to (try to) unlock DLLs too, but I didn't use that parameter.

FWIW, if someone want to insert parts of some final Rexx installer inside a WarpIN Rexx install package, then of course that won't be disallowed by me. This is not a competing install script, albeit I'm often using a Rexx install script instead of a huge install package.

FWIW/2: since the apparently working HIGMEM support requirements are an usual IBM-compliant (Classic or Object) Rexx interpreter, the usual  REXXUTIL.DLL, and ABOVE512 or HIGHMEM.

Done. The list of DLLs now are sentences of Rexx' words. An avoidable disadvantage is that embedded spaces in relative DLL file names no longer are supported. So you can install TB as "C:\Internet Apps\thunderbird\thunderbird.exe", but you cannot use the full file spec "C:\Internet Apps\thunderbird\original dlls\NSS.DLL". Because, according to Rexx, "original" and "dlls\NSS.DLL" are 2 words (and 2 files), due to the blank character. This problem doesn't exist at the moment.

If one has no clue what the number of Rexx words of "original dlls\nss.dll" is: REXXTRY.CMD SAY Words('original dlls\nss.dll')
The output for INSTURBO.CMD must be 1. One Rexx "word" (per one DLL file). As stated above: the problem doesn't exist now.

Untested: installing SM (and TB?) uses icon files distributed via the original ZIP file.

Fully untested: Mozilla, because typically the OS will install that legacy browser and the only update should be the new, recommended MOZTURBO.EXE. No DLLs loaded high, no MOZILLA.EXE objects created.

Main changes were announced earlier. New DLLs can be appended as words in the section of line numbers 30-40 (generic, FF, SM and TB, SM only). Read-only file attribute unset and set for all qualifying read-only DLLs, albeit without error checking (a.o. SysFileTree not running out of memory, no fatal error message when restoring read-only failed). And (default = no) creating a folder and objects inside that folder. The Turbo objects can be created there too.

BTW, if RPM or whatever installs HIGHMEM.EXE in a PATH directory, then it's quite likely that it will be found quite fast indeed. The search order is first ABOVE512.EXE (just because I've got that) and next HIGHMEM.EXE. If the user doesn't type the full path, then the slowest time will be having no ABOVE512.EXE and having a Z:\ZZZZZ\Microsoft Cloud\Huge Network drive\Family\The wife\Tools\HIGHMEM.EXE file.

Possible tests, excluding user-I/O:

Check the relative DLL file names (not changed).

Check if the icons are right for SM/TB (as used in INSTURBO.CMD's FILESPEC=xxx\yyy.ico).

Copy (MOZILLA.EXE,) MOZTURBO.EXE and INSTURBO.CMD to x:\TEST. This should only create the 3 turbo-related objects.

Unzip FF/SM/TB in x:\TEST, copy xxTURBO.EXE and INSTURBO.CMD to the 3 main directories. Optionally mark or unmark DLLs as read-only, and execute the 3 INSTURBO.CMDs.

Basic FF test, starting with installing a FFTURBO.ZIP package in the main FF directory and making sure that some DLL's are(n't) marked as read-only:

Check if the command "THUNDERBIRD.EXE -mail" makes sense. If not, change its "CALL SysCreateObject ..." to "IF product='SM' THEN CALL SysCreateObect ...".

Preliminary testing shows this version as a keeper with a few minor changes such as the programs to include the version so as not to conflict with earlier installed versions, eg firefox-45.9.
I tested by adding the nss and nspr DLLs and they got their attributes changed correctly and changed back.
Next, I'll try on a new install and see how installing the mozapps goes and some of your other tests.
How hard would it be to add setting Firefox or SeaMonkey as the default browser, Thunderbird as the default email client? Same with associations?

FWIW: the code to find ABOVE512.EXE or HIGHMEM.EXE can be optimized by asking what your weapon of choice is, by scanning a drive once and use that "DIR Z:\*.EXE /S" output to find the file, and/or by selecting a drive. As stated earlier, an alternative is to use the PATH (not sure if those tools are path-worthy) or to type the full path.

There are several ways to check versions, if we may exclude downgrades. Check file dates/times, and compare those timestamps with a hard-coded "database" of known versions. Read e.g. the README.OS2 of FF, and find the highest "number" with 2 dots. Read e.g. an identification string of LGPLLIBS.DLL or MOZSQLT3.DLL, and append the version number to WPS object IDs and WPS object names. CHANGES.OS2 seems to be a good candidate, if you're maintaining that. Then a restricted number of lines has to be read, which also reduces the memory footprint of Rexx.

Without rereading the code myself, you could also give the script a try in an empty directory. And a system without high mem tools (i.e. just replace the text HIGMMEM by FOOBAR in the code, if you have no executable FOOBAR file).

Associations are quite easy, if the script installs the WPS objects too. Apperently, with a Dutch OS, I can insert "ASSOCTYPE=HTML,tekst/html;ASSOCFILTER=*.htm,*.html;" in the WPS setup string. AFAIK changing the order requires editing an INI file. Rexx has got SysIni().

There may different types of default browsers. Here *.HTML is linked to Netscape (type 1) for fast local browsing, and IIRC changing the default browser (type 2) didn't fully change all browser settings of WPUrl objects (type 3). In a nutshell Rexx has access to OS/2 INI files, and it should be possible to import RegEdit2-settings.

If "type 2" is equal to "type 3", then I may be remembering not being able to change all settings of WPUrl objects. That's probably the reason why Mozilla still is my default browser. Not being able to set a DEFAULTWORKINGDIR to (NULL). I'm using the SM suite instead of TB, so I don't know about mailer settings.

WPTOOLS.DLL would be required to query settings of WPS objects.

Please keep in mind that associating *.HTML with FF by default may introduce 3 questions: do you want to associate *.HTML files, do you want to associate *HTML files too, and do you want this to be(come) the first association. And you may want to undo a change. To avoid that an Internet Exploder decides it's your default, and there's no tool to undo that decision.

With my typical setup, which isn't anything to go by, Netscape is a default browser for local files and SM should be a default browser for WPUrl objects (Mozilla is, due to not being able to change all settings).

It's also possible to split Rexx files, just like there's also a MozSounds.cmd file too. As such you don't need HIGHMEM.EXE to change associations later.

BTW, can you go to an ArcaOS prompt near you and type "PMREXX.EXE REXXTRY"? Next type "SAY Address()". It's output is either CMD (old bug) or PMREXX (bug fixed). If a fixed PMREXX is GA, then a PMREXX.EXE which returns PMREXX may make a dual-mode app possible (use SAY if the environment is CMD.EXE, or "WinMessageBox" if the environment is a hidden PM Rexx window).

The commands "HELP WPSREF WPPROGRAM" and "HELP WPSREF WPURL" show WPS settings which are available while creating or updating a WPS object. ASSOCFILTER, ASSOCTYPE, BROWSER, DEFAULTBROWSER, and so on.

So the question first is: what do you want to set/change where? Some settings are easy, some aren't, some are hard, and some are impossible. An answer may be: associate the installed FF browser with *.HTML. Is this a new association in the OS/2 INI file, then make it the default one (unless the section PMWP_ASSOC_CHECKSUM would make that too hard, if that would be involved).

If someone wants to play with WPS setup strings, here is the code to create WPProgram and WPUrl test objects (with known object IDs):

Code: [Select]
/**/
CALL RxFuncAdd 'SysCreateObject','RexxUtil','SysCreateObject'
CALL SysCreateObject 'WPUrl','WPUrl settings'||D2C(10)||'test object','<WP_DESKTOP>','URL=https://www.os2world.com;OBJECTID=<WPURL_SETTEST>','R'
CALL SysCreateObject 'WPProgram','WPProgram settings'||D2C(10)||'test object','<WP_DESKTOP>','EXENAME=E.EXE;OBJECTID=<WPPROGRAM_SETTEST>','R'
EXIT

And here's the Rexx code to play with WPS setup strings of the objcts with a known object-ID. Perhaps back-up the WPS and record existing settings before changing WPUrl defaults (the sample code doesn't):

Code: [Select]
/**/
CALL RxFuncAdd 'SysSetObjectData','RexxUtil','SysSetObjectData'
IF SysSetObjectData('<WPURL_SETTEST>','BROWSER=FOO.BAR') THEN SAY 'WPUrl-setting touched successfully'.

FTR/2: I've deleted my sample copy of InsTurbo.CMD each time, for one because the code can (and perhaps should) be changed. If the database of this website would have crashed, then my data source could be lost. I have no back-up copy.

0. Retorical: there's no i686-build for SM SUa1 (yet).

1. According to EDM/2 (http://www.edm2.com/index.php/WPUrl), using WPUrl to set the DEFAULTBROWSER may introduce OS/2 Warp 4+ as an implied requirement.

2. Perhaps a default browser shouldn't somehow require LIBPATHSTRICT=T. Multiple browsers don't require LIBPATHSTRICT=T anymore (a.o. Links 2.19, without possibly conflicting own DLLs since a recent linking change).

3. I may post or upload a more generic (PM?) app to (try to) change the default WPUrl-objects browser later. Without support for default arguments, like Netscape's, because I'm not sure (yet) if that setting can be changed to (NULL) again.

And a sample Rexx script to update ALL existing WPUrl objects in a single WPS Folder (/ subdirectory). Obviously an user could have intentionally entered any value, so this can destroy a setup. Change the parameter FO of SysFileTree to FOS to include subdirectories.

The app assumes that FIREFOX.EXE, MOZILLA.EXE or SEAMONKEY.EXE is installed in the current directory, and uses this EXE and its directory as the new setting for a single WPUrl object.

Presumably it doesn't support a MOZILLA.EXE in a root directory (easy fix, but an unlikely install of that legacy browser).

Code: [Select]
[R:\MEUK\FIREFOX]updatewpurl

Usage: UpdateWPUrl.CMD [base directory, e.g. C:\HOME\DESKTOP\TestFolder]

[R:\MEUK\FIREFOX]updatewpurl d:\home\desktop
1 files found.
Adjusted: d:\home\desktop\WPUrlTestObject

Code: [Select]
/* UpdateWPUrl.CMD - Updates existing WPUrl objects in single WPS folder/directory */

CALL RxFuncAdd 'SysLoadFuncs','RexxUtil','SysLoadFuncs'
CALL SysLoadFuncs

PARSE ARG base
base=Strip(base)
IF Left(base,1)='"' THEN PARSE VAR base '"' base '"' .
IF base='' THEN DO
   SAY
   SAY 'Usage: UpdateWPUrl.CMD [base directory, e.g. C:\HOME\DESKTOP\TestFolder]'
   EXIT
END

here=Directory()
browser=Stream(here||'\FIREFOX.EXE','C','QUERY EXISTS')
IF browser='' THEN browser=Stream(here||'\SEAMONKEY.EXE','C','QUERY EXISTS')
IF browser='' THEN browser=Stream(here||'\MOZILLA.EXE','C','QUERY EXISTS')
IF browser='' THEN DO
   SAY
   SAY 'Error: FIREFOX.EXE, MOZILLA.EXE nor SEAMONKEY.EXE found in' here
   EXIT
END

IF Right(base,1)<>'\' THEN base=base||'\'
base=base||'*'
CALL SysFileTree base,'object.','FO'
IF object.0=0 THEN EXIT
SAY object.0 'files found.'
flag=1

DO i=1 TO object.0
   IF SysGetEA(object.i,'.TYPE','typeinfo')=0 THEN DO
      PARSE VAR typeinfo 1 . 11 type
      IF type=='UniformResourceLocator' THEN DO
         IF SysSetObjectData(object.i,'BROWSER='||browser||';WORKINGDIR='||here) THEN SAY 'Adjusted:' object.i
      END

END i

0. Retorical: there's no i686-build for SM SUa1 (yet).

Sorry, once I get this debug build I've been fighting to finish, I'll build you one. I think I might use a frame rate of 30 instead of 60 as well for performance. I experimented a bit with it and didn't notice any harmful affects and it should work better on lower end hardware.

Your seamonkey-2.42.9esr_r3_s.en-US.os2.zip works fine with (all) eCS hardware with enough physical RAM.

If browsing about:blank is a disaster due to browser component changes now, then you could skip SM i686. I do have FF i686 installed, but I tend to only use that when performance doesn't matter. Install and seldomly use a XPI file which doesn't support SM, for example. All recent FFs were very slow, compared to the SM r3_s release and previous releases.

I can confirm that a reasonable general performance is more important for a i686 build than a cOOl FPS rate. For "modern" videos I may have to use W10-hardware anyway, and even that's frequently too slow for e.g. unavoidable video ads.

Limited disk space is one of the main reasons why I don't consider saving a second optimized copy for newer eCS hardware, despite of the fact that I may own at least one eCS Pentium-M CPU.

---

Back on-topic is the same (lack of) speed a reason why I didn't really take a look at both setting a new WPUrl default browser and changing existing BROWSER settings if the old BROWSER setting was the previous default browser. One may intentionally use any legacy browser when it would take minutes to launch FF to browse a local HTML file.

Setting a new default browser can be restricted to a specific family of products, you don't always have to support QtWeb as s theoretically competing browser, but then it may require a PM UI with many "checkboxes" to confirm changing the BROWSER setting of each existing WPUrl object. And a select all-button, and a reverse selection-button, and so on.

It could also look like the 3rd tab of WPProgram's settings, with a "Add" and "Remove" button. Left: don't touch. Right: update. It won't be as "easy" as Windows' "Do you want to use Firefox as the default browser for everything?". We've got an OO choice, which e.g. I've used (*.HTML Netscape, WPUrl Mozilla (http(s):m file:) or Netscape (file:, regular browsing mainly SM or FF). But with such a PM app I'll have to look at about 170 WPUrl objects. Excluding the ones with a non-default BROWSER setting, but including file: ones installed by installers of programs. I may be tempted to select "Don't change anything" when a long list pops up, for one because most/all OS/2-related web sites won't require a modern browser. I'll probably just change the default browser for new WPUrl objects, if I would create new WPUrl objects quite frequently.

I believe so. The *k.dll ones are legacy and aren't used by current builds. I'm marking all high using your last InsTurbo.cmd with the above, minus the *k.dll ones, added to the script. Do need to adjust the error handling so if a DLL is not present, the script just mentions it instead of dying.

Thank you. After checks I'll delete the NS*K.DLL files and will mark the safe other NS*.DLL ones as load-high too.
Do need to adjust the error handling so if a DLL is not present, the script just mentions it instead of dying.

      /* End of optional LIBPATH section */
   
   END
   SAY
END i

IF errors>0 THEN DO
   CALL Charout '',errors 'fatal DLL file error(s). Please press <ENTER> to exit... '
   PULL .
   EXIT
END

SAY 'All expected files found, somewhere.'

EXIT

Output sample with eCS 1.2 in FIREFOX.EXE's directory (product irrelevant, earlier fully functional sample code already uses the real right list of DLLs per product, no "SET BEGINLIBPATH=..." in use:

Don't worry, hopefully you meant D:\interweb\Bin\nspr4.dll

DLL test file 11: CONFIG.SYS
DLL file CONFIG.SYS not found with starting point D:\interweb\firefox

5 fatal DLL file error(s). Please press <ENTER> to exit...

Post your last version (a.o. including NS*.DLLs) and the code to be inserted (which may exclude the LIBPATH retry), if you want someone else to insert the stand-alone sample code above. Mainly coming down to checking variable names and using the real DLL file name array.

The (BEGIN)LIBPATH won't work with SysSearchPath, because SysSearchPath requires (SET=...) environment variables. The PATH is, but the LIBPATH isn't. I've inserted that complicating (BEGIN)LIBPATH checking code to account for setups with NS*.DLLs outside of e.g. a distributed "old" FF 45.9 package. The log file section of DLL test file 10 shows this construction may actually work.

Additionally setting a default browser is not related to a specific product. But the author of a specific product can, of course, promote the own product. My generic app uses SysIni. An alternative solution could be to SysCreateObject a WPUrl object with SET DEFAULT=... settings in e.g. the folder "<WP_NOWHERE>", and to (try to) SysDestroyObject that WPUrl object immediately.

Or you can create a WPUrl object which refers to a file or the homepage of the product, open the settings, and tell the user to go to the Browser tab and use the button to set a default browser there.

In the case of InsTurbo.CMD I'd recommend SysIni. It has found the main EXE and its directory, which is all you need as long as the browser doesn't require LIBPATHSTRICT=T and SET BEGINLIBPATH=... anymore.

A quick & dirty test or my memory failed. ISTR I created a WPUrl test object (no ".EXE." in its EAs), changed the default browser via SysIni, but the created test object still was opened with the previous default browser.

A PM app would be useful if you want an user has OLDBROWSER.EXE in EAs of existing WPUrl object. Then you can present a list of changes (do you want to change the intentionally set OLDBROWSER.EXE of "ecomstation.com" to e.g. Firefox?).

My default-browser selector does use the fact that the name of the product, like SeaMonkey, always matches the name of the EXE (SEAMONKEY.EXE).

This is the version I'm testing, works fine if all DLLs are present. Be nice if it also worked with older builds without NSS and NSPR DLLs present.
Not too worried right now about program objects for the browser etc, just making marking the DLLs to load high and putting the turbo programs on desktop/startup folder.
Thanks
