Just wondering, has anyone been brave enough to replace G3.3 with G4, in there main setup?
If so how has it been?
And are you single!

I have ported all my big setup (more than 600 KBs GML) to G4... It's much better than G3, and much more powerfull!
I'm very satisfected... Thanks Promixis Team...
Mike C: What about final prices for the G4 ? And the G3 users will have a discount ?
Thanks any help.

Ask me again in a few weeks... From the 20th of this month my wife and the kids will visit her parents, and that will be my chance to attack that problem fully. So that will mean a few days of hysterical activity and (hopefully) only one week of removing all the gremlins.

I have been holding off because I like the log-file setup that I have with G3.
A line of text is appended to a file everytime certain events occur and I can call up the log anytime.
When I start trying to convert it to G4 I want to create an XML file instead of a text file and display the log in various creative ways, including graphically.
I just need to message a few pros here and then muster up the courage to try to put it together.
Slightly unrelated, but It would be nice to have an XML plugin built in to G4 that would enable users to easily read XML files and assign variables the file (like Curtis' XMLTV plugin). Any thoughts?

there is a lua xml library available but i don't know how well it will work with girder

That library is already available in the latest G4 download. The easiest way is to the lua object model also included.
require"lxp.lom" -- simple xml parsing

Or you could use the xmldom.

The DOM will work but is more complex.
And it seems that luacom is not thread safe... ie it will be fine on the main girder thread but not using secondary threads (at least when heavily stressed.)

Thanks for all your pointers, guys. I'll see if I can figure something out in the next week or 2.

Do you know of any documentation for lxp?
June 2nd, 2005, 12:23 PM
June 2nd, 2005, 01:03 PM
for what you want to do.
Use lua socket for the download (see an example here using it to download a file)

Thanks Chaps, Any chance of putting these doc links in a sticky at the top of the G4 forum?
