Re: VPcURL revised

After some 10 years, the "VPcURL revised" package needs some minor updating for version 10. Just use the guidance of warnings and errors(2) messages. Change uncheckedConvert into convert

Re: uncheckedConvert(pointer, Binary)

Thanks! That was easy. I retrofitted also the version 9 changes regarding the bit::bitAnd change into the ** operator (and other similar changes). Could not find the operator section in the Wiki. Wonder why for instance ** was chosen instead of the usual &&. Fortunately the warning messages ...

uncheckedConvert(pointer, Binary)

My Prolog has become rusty :-(
How do I handle:

uncheckedConvert(pointer, Binary)
e504 The expression has type '::binary', which is incompatible with the type '::pointer'

Re: anti virus programs

I'm sure the large Inno Setup users community can be of some assistance, but basically you are on your own :oops: . Over the years, Inno Setup worked for me, and I let it create registry entries for the program, e.g. uninstall. I did not sign the program, however the download site had a domain certi...

Re: anti virus programs

Now that you mention it, yes my VP installation always goes smooth. One tip though, if you provide a generic download of a certain VP version (which requires f.i. a registration code at install time), your installable will be even better accepted than your current downloads which are personalized. A...

Re: anti virus programs

For instance: an installer helps create one or more entries in the windows registry at install time under your control, which in turn are recognized by the anti virus program. It also provides the possibility to 'sign' the installable. (I never used the latter). Also the fact that an uninstaller is ...

Re: anti virus programs

Perhaps I missed it, but did you guys deploy your apps in an installer like Inno Setup?
That might help.

Integrating with foreign IDE's

Thomas, since you stress the importance of a VCS, here are my two cents: Modern IDE's are integrated with a VCS, primarily with GIT, which helps a lot with the learning curve. As a spin-off it is a natural to be able to invoke a sophisticated diff view so that the changes (= progress :-) or mistakes...

Notepad++ Visual Prolog Language Support

I noticed that the latest version of Notepad++ 7.5.1 announces Visual Prolog language support.
That would be of course a good thing!
Can anybody comment on that?
Thanks,

Thanks Thomas! The reactiveX library contains some 68 different operators on observables and your story illustrates why that large number would be necessary. A practical point is that the programmer needs to remember to unsubscribe from the observable when finished, otherwise the events will continu...

OK The keyword webservice is all I needed. I must say that I just got my arms around promises and observables in Angular and was looking for the equivalents in VP 8. Can anybody tell me if futures are the equivalent of observables? Can you 'subscribe' to futures? I think this is all exiting new stuf...
