Nedit copy/paste failure

Posted 12-09-2012 at 05:55 PM by flshope

At the risk of revealing myself to be a computer muggle, I will start by saying that I do most of my code writing/editing using NEdit. I have been using NEdit for most of a decade. I know I should learn Emacs, but I just haven't gotten around to that. I like NEdit a lot, except for one fairly serious problem ...

Seemingly at random, when I have multiple instances of NEdit running simultaneously, the copy/paste function suddenly stops working on all instances. Closing all NEdit sessions...

applies to: linux, KMail, Opera, Balsa, Claws

Recently I got sick of new KMail.

Email disaster with Opera

Posted 12-08-2012 at 08:11 PM by flshope

I do my email using Opera. Opera is fast as a browser and it's convenient to open web links from emails in the same application.

A few days ago, I had an email disaster. I had just switched from internet work to email only to find, much to my horror, that all my current and previously stored emails had disappeared.

new mc2 - creates makefiles from a source tree

Fixed a bug in mc2 noticed here.
Where It Crashed:

The large number of files listed in the mc2.def was overloading the parser so Parser (and the string list file and pipe reader) got a heftier buffer.

The file above is a java application. Not a great one but it shows one way mc2 can even generate makefiles for java applications using EXT_ALL as a target and some other tricks.
