View Full Version : Conversion Program?
April 22nd, 2005, 04:34 AM
I know it is still very early days, but I think an answer to this may help some of us in our transition planning.
Do you intend to create a conversion program to change gml's from 3.3 to G4?

Most GMLS that are based on the tree only will move without trouble.
Lua will a fair amount of change.
We decided when designing G4 that we would not sacriface functionality/features for compatability. And as I mentioned above, as per Mark F's advice, if you are going to break it, break it hard :D

It would help if the Communication Server used the same device id as IES or if there were some way to map one to the other.

You could do a remap using lua... addeventhandler, triggerevent and transposing the deviceids...
Since the comserver is a much different beast, we decided not to keep the pluginids unchanged.

Ok Thanks Mike.
I thought as much!
Perhaps a helpful person will make an lua 4 to 5 converter!.....

There is a lua 5 script that will reproduce much of the lua 4 enviroment. However, this, IMHO, is not a good solution. Maybe a short term fix but ultimately could be a source of major headaches :D
The long and short of it... the transition to G4 will be time consuming for users with sophisticated G3 programs. If we had another 1000 development hours to burn, we could build a conversion program, but we don't.. :x

I was thinking more along the lines of parsing a script and making change for example, strfind to string.find
Lucky my system is very simple!.... :wink: :cry:
