Me too, the nightmarishly slow and ancient Teac on my Octane2 finally crapped out. I consider this an opportunity for advancement... ;)

Re: Gallery gone?

That can't be right; Pete's said many times he doesn't care at all about bandwidth or disk usage. I'm sure he'll put it back once he realizes it's offline. I hate to bug the guy but I'm sure there's someone here who would be so bold as to send him a PM about this.

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

9000 USD? Good grief. I found the invoice from when I bought the Linux version of BX 5 in 1999, $250 US. I'll have to dig out my old Slackware 8 CDs if I ever want to use it again... 8-) I've been looking into the IRIX header of VkSubProcess. I just read the header, yikes! What sucks is that Doug Y...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

VkProgram and VkSubProcess appear to do basically the same thing, from the manpage headings: NAME VkSubProcess, VkSubProcessRep -- Object-oriented interface to a running subprocess NAME VkProgram -- Object-oriented interface to subprogram execution Not sure what the thinking was with regard to that,...

Wow, nice going! How much was the shipping cost from France to AUS, if I may be so bold as to enquire? :shock:

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

Progress. Of a sort. Hey, nice! That compiles and runs just fine on my computers (Linux and Octane2). Obviously, my poor understanding of C++ inheritance syntax and its rules is causing a good deal of my grief here. Uh, I'm not sure why you say that, you haven't inherited anything in that code! :lo...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

As I understand it now, X11 applications deal with 'window system' events by running a single endless while-loop at the core of any programme. Not to get all nit-picky on you but it's actually a for loop... ;) What a lot of people do is copy the source code to XtAppMainLoop and add their own code l...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

Just for funzies I dled the latest version of BX Pro from the ICS website (version 6.2), to see if it has support for VkSubProcess objects; it doesn't look like it has any. Hope to look into this a bit more this weekend, I find the thought of having an OO interface into Unix processes to be very ner...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

I'll take a look at this when I get home tonight. The reason Viewkit's manpages are such total crap is because it was never supposed to be coded by hand, developers were supposed to use rapidapp, and then when they deprecated rapidapp they were supposed to switch to BX Pro. At that point SGI handed ...

Re: How do I fix this?! >:(

I've never used it but according to the manpage luit should be able to solve this: If you are running in a UTF-8 locale but need to access a remote machine that doesn't support UTF-8, luit can adapt the remote output to your terminal: $ LC_ALL=fr_FR luit ssh legacy-machine
