All bluray media seems to be using UDF 2.5
BD-RE v2, BD-R and Rom is 1.0?

Hi Larry.

The EDM/2 wiki has several OS/2 REXX related article, there is also a series of articles called "DrDialog, or: How I learned to stop worrying and love REXX"

But seems that the wiki is down for the moment. I will contact Adrian (netlabs) to see what happened.
Thanks Martin, sounds like it is what I could be looking for.

Jumping a little but out of the topic, I always dream with the idea of replacing OS/2's REXX with an open source implementation of Regina REXX  ( How will it work for us to remove IBM's REXX libraries from OS/2 and use Regina? I don't have the technical skill to know how hard or easy will be to do this, or if Regina REXX has all the functionality that IBM's REXX has.

Well, on the outside it seems to have a lot of what IBM does, but there could be something deeper that IBM has that makes it still somewhat better. Don't know enough about eCS yet.
I would imagine it would be the same as replacing any other library or interpreter. As long as all the functions and calls are there for the OS, it would make it an easier change, if workarounds need to be coded, that could take time.

As long as the hardware drivers detect that the bluray drive is readable, I suppose it's then up to the software on eCS to determine that. I suppose VLC could do this job.

Late response, but in Virtualbox I've managed to use full 1920x1080 res with my Ati Radeon HD 6570 2GB. I'm pretty sure it would still work in a regular install.

Couldn't software load a dll manually and ignore this? Unless it of course is a library used in multiple programs? So if you write your own program using your own library(.dll), it could have 20 characters if you wanted, it just can't be part of the system? :P Also, unrelated, but thanks Paul, your ports have been very helpful and made using OS/2/eCS a lot better than default.

Okay, thanks. Both replies helped me learn some stuff. But before I get too out of focus, where exactly could one see a documentation on VX-REXX, or DrDialog? I'm coming up nothing in Google, and I'm not buying a book, haha. The books don't teach me anything, I need visual examples and class/function structure so I can engineer it. I didn't learn PHP, Javascript, HTML, or anything like that reading books, just examples, concepts, and functions, until I knew enough functions to write my own stuff. Same way I learned PC repair. I opened up a PC case, took out a part and replaced it. I didn't need no guide.

I think you may have read me a little unclear, I was referring to the taskbar. It's called the WPS isn't it? I know that the CPU load widget is the whole system though, either way, you still gave me some valuable information.  thanks again, I appreciate it.

Update, just to be sure, this is what you meant?

I feel like I'm in a classroom. That's not a bad thing, you are very insightful.

What..? D: Random. But thanks for the insight Dave. This is normal for old systems and their old FS, just forgot all about how "dumb" pre:NT4 was concerning file names.

Posting from eCS, since Virtualbox doesn't wanna transfer clipboards between guest and host. lol

Code: [Select]
call RxFuncAdd 'SysLoadFuncs', 'RexxUtil', 'SysLoadFuncs'
call SysLoadFuncs
Address 'CMD'
'D:\Programs\cURL\curl\bin\curl.exe <URL/weather/?zip=zipcode> -o D:\scripts\weather\current.txt'
Do until RxMessageBox(Linein( 'D:\scripts\weather\current.txt' ,1),"Weather","OK","EXCLAMATION") = 1

EXITcall RxFuncAdd 'SysLoadFuncs', 'RexxUtil', 'SysLoadFuncs'
call SysLoadFuncs
Address 'CMD'
'D:\Programs\cURL\curl\bin\curl.exe -o D:\scripts\weather\current.txt'
Do until RxMessageBox(Linein( 'D:\scripts\weather\current.txt' ,1),"Weather","OK","EXCLAMATION") = 1


That's what I have now, and it works as expected. Just now need to tell it what to do with the response.
If you're unsure of what I'm doing, I'm trying to make widget similar to the one that tells me the current cpu load on the desktop shell?( or should I say Workspace shell?)

Probably reviving a dead topic, but I'm looking to do something similar, however, I am looking to parse the request through my own server before fetching the result. I'm going to fetch a url over http, and use my servers response as a txt file. Each line being something distinct to give back on the desktop.

I'm thinking of using to pull it all together, since I know more php than I do Rexx.

I'm not going to ask how to program in Rexx, as I'm reading a documentation on it's built in functions and such. I've scripted mIRC in the past, been using Javascript since a teen, learned OOP-PHP, understand some C/C++ structuring due to some involvement with reverse engineering and such, so it shouldn't be super super hard for me. However, if I want to read a line of a file I would use

Code: [Select]
say Linein( 'file1' )  right?

So if I have a Rexx widget in my taskbar and tell it to "say Linein( 'file1' )" and file1 contains "Hello, Larry!" would I see that on the taskbar?

Sorry, it appears it can't do that, RxMessagebox or what not, will read more and learn.

Thanks both of you. I know a bit about how dynamic link libraries work. Usually dlls work in the application folder or actual system locations, like C:\WINDOWS\System32 At least that's how Windows has always worked, so what you two are telling me isn't completely foreign to me. eCS seems to work in a similar way, which makes things a bit easier.

Thanks Andy, does this mean it would be possible to port video editing programs then?

While this topic is more of a mixture of programming and hardware, can we get more than 32mb out of our graphics cards using eCS? "It doesn't need it" isn't really an answer I'm looking for. I'm an advanced video editor. I've used things like Sony Vegas, where a project could very well consume 2GB ram, and a lot out of a video card. Is it impossible to program in a GUI or something to control the OS and how much power/memory it uses from any graphics card? Of course that is more advanced and could lead to problems, but takes out the need to have individual driver profiles for every card.
