Works fine on os/2 warp 4.52 with kernel 14.106 w4 and fixpak 6 running under virtual box 5.40. No hang ups or hiccups yet.

Okay thanks gentleman. I will give both those suggestions a try.

Programming / Open watcom lib question
« on: February 18, 2017, 09:39:33 pm »
Does anyone know where there is a list that indicates which functions are contained in which lib files? I specifically want to know which lib file contains the time functions. Are all the time function code isolated by itself in one lib file? I would just like to recompile that lib file, if possible since I modified some of the code in 2 of the functions. This is version 1.9. I have downloaded the source. Creating apps with it is working great but recompiling existing lib files from source is turning out to be another ballgame with me apparently.

After doing a little more research and fiddling with the syntax - yep it works. Thanks guys.

Programming / Printf and ansi color codes
« on: February 03, 2017, 09:51:08 pm »
Just a simple question guys. Using open watcom 1.9  and wondering if it supports using ansi color codes with printf to change text colors? I have never done it using printf or is there a better way than printf to do it in open watcom? Thanks.

Oh and the v2 installer actually didn't create program objects for any of the tools. I just ended up with an empty folder on the desktop as well . Never had any issues with installing the 1.9 version. So far nothing has went poof on me with 1.9. I think I will stick with it for now.

Oh I realize that. I tried v2 fork but the ide kept crashing on me so that is why I went back to 1.9. The ide from 1.9 doesn't give me any issues. I will check out the links.

That is stuff I have already looked at following the links from the open watcom website. I will stick with 1.9. It doesn't give me any issues.

Hi guys, I am modifying the time and localtime functions. Trying to squash some bugs I noticed when I used the functions along with strftime in some test programs I compiled. I will check for the make file but I don't recall seeing one. I will check again.  This is where I found the source for 1.9:

I will let you guys know how it goes.

Hi all, I wonder if someone could point me to some info on how to compile the clib source. I have open watcom 1.9 for OS/2 and I have downloaded the source and modified some of the time function code but I have never done a compile on the clib stuff. Could I just simply recompile the time function code or does all the libraries have to be compiled at once? Is this info buried somewhere in the help file? I will continue to browse it.

Okay thanks guys, that is the answer I was looking for. I will just have to hard code the path into the apps I want and then hard code the path into the field of the Program object template. It is what it is.

I understand that about the HOME variable. I just used that as an example. The question is whether you can have variable substitution in program object's fields or not.

Virtualbox 5.024
OS/2 Warp 4.52 unofficial fixpak 6

Hello all, is it not possible to have environment variable substitution in the Working Directory field for program objects?

For example: the program object for the text editor. If I have the HOME environment variable set to c:\home\adam and I want the Text Editor's Save As dialog box to always open in my home directory is it not possible to just specify %HOME% in the working directory field for the Text editor's program object? I have tried using %HOME% and that doesn't work. I have tried several different permutations but nothing has worked yet. I am beginning to think it just doesn't support variable substitution.

Can you try running it in safe mode? I believe the switch is -safe-mode although that might not be the correct syntax. I have not tried starting it from the command line so I am not familiar with the switches.

Okay, I just checked the command line help and it is --safe-mode.

I believe he is referring to the configuration page within Firefox - about:config.

I use the ntp 4.20 port build 6 lib06 package. You can get it from Hobbes. Just do a search for ntp on Hobbes and you will find it. It contains ports of both ntp and ntpdate. I have been using ntpdate for a couple of weeks and I have not had any issues with it yet.
