[ALLY] Amiga setup tip Re:(2)

From: steve:shireman:maxonusa at: 8-Aug-2000 8:03

Yes, the console locked up when hitting the close gadget, which I had submitted as a bug report this last weekend. That was 0.9.9 or whatever that Beta version was. This morning before work, I just installed the Developer version which is later, but I haven't gone back to see if that problem is already fixed or not. As far as ILBM's, I do think they would provide lots of existing content for all platforms, to have that reader there, and give Rebol a great big edge over Java, for the graphics that could be used. (It takes time to develop new artwork! And I have tons of great GUI artwork in ILBM form) Of course, a converter could be written in Rebol, although I think the .jpeg decoder is written in asm for speed if I remember info from the past correctly. (have you ever tried to look at an ILBM with netscape? the poor thing gets cornfused with such standardized IFF graphics...) I suspect since most ILBM's (ANIMs would be nice too!) are inherently compressed but do not require a fat processor to use efficiently, that they could give excellent speed results. Anyway, thats my $.02 from the soapbox. Steve Shireman Every picture tells a story, don't it? Rod Stewart [carl--cybercraft--co--nz] wrote:
