Programming / Git and extended attributes
« on: September 25, 2023, 06:14:58 am »
For my Mastodon client, I was considering VisPro/REXX, but the challenge is it relies on extended attributes on the project folder structure.

Git doesn't handle that, so that's making it slightly challenging.

The best solution I can think up right now is to zip up the project folder and commit the zip file, but I don't much like that.

Otherwise I'd have to do an annoying cmd file as a git hook to use EAUTIL to export / import the EA's.

Has anyone built any EA support for git?

Programming / Object REXX: HTTP client and Mastodon client
« on: September 23, 2023, 08:42:57 am »
Hi all,

I'm working on a HTTP Client and corresponding Mastodon client and app in Object REXX (the one that ships with OS/2 Warp and ArcaOS)

The code is posted here if you're interested:

When I get far enough along, I'll split it into separate repos.

I'm using Mark Hessling's great Rexx/CURL bindings.

Please forgive my newbie OREXX skills, I haven't used REXX since ARexx on the Amiga  :)

Programming / VisualAge C++ 3.0 editor

So, the LXPM in VAC 3.0 does not like widescreen resolutions, but the LXPM in VAC 4.0 works great there.

For VAC 3.0, is it possible to override which editor WorkFrame launches? Either to the LXPM in VAC 4.0 or to NEPMD? (or some other good coding editor?)


Applications / Installing VisualAge C++ 3.0 on ArcaOS 5.1.0
« on: September 06, 2023, 06:27:10 am »
I'm having trouble getting VisualAge C++ 3.0 installed properly on ArcaOS 5.1.0 -

I have a clean Arca install, and I finished phase 1 of the VA install, and on reboot I'm stuck at a blue screen with a wait cursor. PMShell never loads. Window List is empty, and I can't seem to get to PMShell or anything.

The config.sys changes look innocuous - so I'm not sure where to go from here.

Has anyone seen this yet?

edit: after a few minutes, I hit "Shift" and got the ArcaOS Desktop Panic screen, telling it to skip startup, and skip desktop archiving didn't help.
