Feb 17, 2003, 9:29pm
Sorry i really didnt want to mix in to this, but hardcoding citnames? At
least read in the references from a file, sheesh


for (int i=0,j=0;i<readfile("whatever.txt");i++)
if (check_avnumber(i))
aw_whisper_session("Whisper password to gain rights");
else
if(check_password(j=aw_int(AW_AVATAR_SESSION)))
processrights(j);

I had a few times a low sessionnumber show up, i decided to leave it in
anyway as the counter climbs fast the ostrich algorythm is a good
workaround here ;)

sdk issues / GLOBAL MODE

Jun 11, 2003, 7:54pm
IMHO the SDK sends spurious info quite a lot of times, i had to add
quite a lot of code just to sort out spurious returns from actual
returns

AVATAR_ADD Events are particularly sensitive :(

Sorry my mistake i should have had my Oxford with me before answering you
instead of using the everyday interpretation of the word as in database, an
application which stores information permanently on a physical medium for

That AFAIK being 255 bytes the overal savings are minute, so 'almost' as as
close to the reality as possible without getting into to much detail :)
But it does save on each line being preceded by the bots name which does
look nicer i must admit. It would be a good idea if the whole SDK where
overhauled taking modern pc's and bandwidth possibilities in mind. I've got
a slew of functions i would like to see the limits taken off or extended.
However viewing AW's present state is not likely to happen :( Maybe once
they will see the light and make it open source. They could leave out the
sensitive bits having to do with tunneling...

i am talking about using a bot ofcourse :). How the AW browser handles
special chars i am sure i dont know

The whole issue was you asking why 2 bytes where used for a newline as
Joe pointed out in response to my remark that the overhead of sending one
large message filled with newlines was almost the same as sending
seperate messages so the bandwidth waste would be of no concern.

In C, and i seem to remember the same goes for Basic (but dont hold me to
it the last time i really used Basic was somewhere in 1982)

The \r stands for carriage return (which is 0A (10))
The \n stands for new line (which is 0D (13))

So if you create a text, you need to insert \r\n in the sentence to get
it the go to a newline. The precompiler then translates the \r to hex 0A
and the \n to 0D

printf("mark\r\nthis is a new line");

ofcourse you can do:

printf("mark\x0A\x0Dthis is a new line");

however this is somewhat cumbersome i think :)

If you use only new line the cursor will stay where it was the last time
If you use only carriage return the cursor will just return to the
beginning of the line.

Hence you need the pair to specify a newline, cursor at the start

Us old guys might remember the time when we used a typewriter (you might
find one in a museum somewhere) where you needed to push a large lever
which ratcheted the roll a few clicks further while at the same time you
could move the whole carriage to the left.

Here the newline pair was born.

This translated into a teletype instruction, which in turn was the base
for this.

I hope this puts this to rest.....

[View Quote] non standarisation is slowly spreading, what can i say :) Must be said in
all fairness the newline was never that standarized anyway, but still on
a dos based platform it was pretty much standarized to crlf.

Not that i mind its better to have one char then 2 chars for a
newline.....
