Software News   Software News : GoldED AIX Editor - Free Download!
   posted by dietmar on 30-Mar-2006 21:52:05 (3840 reads)
As has become a small tradition, I make older versions of my software available for free every once in a while. This time, it's a version from 2002: GoldED Studio AIX SP2. It can be downloaded here.



COPYRIGHT NOTICE

While this is a free download on my web site, it is not freeware and may not be duplicated anywhere (on other servers or other media). Sale not permitted. It is NOT available for inclusion in other software. This is a limited time offer, traffic limits apply.

RELEASE NOTES

SP2, which stands for service pack 2, was made before OS4 was released and before the author had a Pegasos. That means it is only fully compatible with AmigaOS3.

The C/C++ part of this version is designed for SAS/C, StormC3 and vbcc but no compiler is included. Please install SAS/C, StormC3 or vbcc separately, before or after GoldED. The editor is not pre-configured for gcc. Theoretically, it can be configured to be used with any compiler.

No SDK is included in the archive. If you plan to use it for development, please download the OS3.9 NDK separately from Amiga Inc.'s web site. This is best done AFTER the GoldED installation but BEFORE you start GoldED for the first time! Only then will it be recognized by the C/C++ mode and be indexed. Install the NDK as golded:add-ons/c++/ndk_39/...

SUPPORT

No support in any form is available for this version, as you might have guessed. If you have questions concerning download, installation or use, please try to get them answered in Amiga forums.

FINAL WORDS

Please keep in mind that this is older software, it lacks many features of later versions and looks odd, especially on post-OS3 systems. It is not meant as a demo of Cubic IDE. I hope that you will also download Cubic IDE to see how far it has progressed. Note that GoldED Studio AIX and Cubic IDE can not be installed at the same time. Use the included "uninstall" program to remove one before installing the other.

Thanks Dietmar. People are sure happy for this.

So when next update comes the earlier version
of Cubic IDE will be for free (hehe)

@Kicko

Maybe that depends on the sale number of Cubic IDE ?

It's better to considder this as a special gift and to keep
supporting new software while it is developed and updated.

Not directed directly at you ofcourse, but to everybody.

I was going to download it, then I noticed this on the requirements page:

"The software is NOT compatible with OS4 (because the memory management functions of OS4 are not exactly identical with the same functions of AmigaOS3). The result is memory ocrruption, leading to generally unstable behaviour."

What a pity

The statement is not entirely fair. Golded uses an undocumented feature of OS 3's memory management, namely that the OS used to store the size of a memory chunk allocated with AllocVec in front of the allocation itself. This is no longer true for AmigaOS4.0, so any program that relies on that will fail.

AmigaOS4.0 memory functions still perform the same task that was specified for OS 3, however programs (ab)using undocumented side effects of older revisions will cease to work since the memory handling changed.

Later versions of GoldEd fix this problem.

@Rogue & Dietmar

Well, let's hope it's the case ! I have a copy of CubicIDE, and there's just too much problem between CubicIDE and OS4 Upd#4 :

- flashing screen
- scroll wheel no more working
- edited document's directory locked !!! (reboot to free them)

Will they be adressed ? Anyway, it's still a great editor !!!

- flashing screen

This has started with update #4 and is apparently related to the blank borders option (a video property). The flicker will disappear if you disable the "blank borders" checkbox in Cubic's display configuration dialog.

Quote:
- scroll wheel no more working

OS4 #4 does not use the newmouse protocol (how AmigaOS software has addressed the mouse wheel in recent years). I'm not going to change my software, last but not least because I have no SDK nor documentation nor test opportunity. This has to be addressed in other ways, ie. a general solution for newmouse-oriented software.

Quote:
- edited document's directory locked !!! (reboot to free them)

Have you configured the editor to "stay resident", ie. run without window? See checkmark in the first menu. In that case the current directory - obviously - will remain locked. Otherwise, it would be an update #4 problem I haven't heard of before; please provide useful information in that case (snoopdos).

Would that help:

ISig = Wait( 1 window->UserPort->mp_SigBit );
while ( (IMsg = (struct IntuiMessage *)GetMsg( vi->window->UserPort )) && !out )
{
IClass = IMsg->Class;
ICode = IMsg->Code;
MouseX = IMsg->MouseX;
MouseY = IMsg->MouseY;
IAddress = IMsg->IAddress;
ReplyMsg((struct Message *)IMsg);

switch (IClass)
{
...

#ifdef __amigaos4__
case IDCMP_EXTENDEDMOUSE:
if (ICode & IMSGCODE_INTUIWHEELDATA)
{
struct IntuiWheelData *wd = (struct IntuiWheelData*)IAddress;

px = MouseX;
py = MouseY;

angle += 10 * wd->WheelY;
refresh = TRUE;
}
break;
#else
...
#endif
...

and

#include "intuition/intuition.h"

struct IntuiWheelData {
UWORD Version; /* version of this structure (see below) */
UWORD Reserved; /* always 0, reserved for future use */
WORD WheelX; /* horizontal wheel movement delta */
WORD WheelY; /* vertical wheel movement delta */
};

(kind of)

I am willing to test this...

And no, the new mouse hack eats my new style events. (that's possible with that tool from os4depot).

(someone tells me how to format that text ?)

--
Actually, I think that code is broken. Cannot believe that the IAdress is still valid after the ReplyMsg(). But, at least it works...you'd propably want to check the wheel data before the ReplyMsg (?).

@Dietmar

Ok for the first one, nuchecking the option solve the problem.

For the locking problem, yes, CubicIDE is resident, but i'm talking about the edited document's directory, not CubicIDE's one. I.e. when you close a document (let's say SDK:local/common/MyApp/foo.c), you should be able to delete the MyApp directory. It's no more possible with Upd4 when a document contained in MyApp has been edited once.

I would love to give you more information, but... erm... i don't know how to interpret Snoopdos informations. I see "lock" operations, but no "unlock".

Sorry, no idea why you have this difficulty. Report it as problem for Upd4 if you are sure it is not user error, maybe it's a known issue. File a reasonable bug report. What you do, how you do it (detailed and step by step), snoopdos log, version numbers etc.

The reason is that many allocations are still (I don't know how long) executed by OS4 as the program expects, ie. allocation size before allocation, just as OS3 + MorphOS + AROS implement AllocVec(). Not consistently though: If certain conditions are met - if the allocation is big and if the MEMF_PUBLIC flag is not used - the size is not stored by the OS and my program sees a random number. That's when you will get the corruption. During normal use, this is a very rare event but ultimately unavoidable.

This issue between OS4 and GoldED was addressed with service pack 20.
