Slick 2014, Mac, crashed SIGSEGV
« on: November 13, 2014, 09:49:04 pm »
I was experimenting with the "/" search command and somehow Slick stopped responding to all keyboard and mouse input.
Slick was not locked up, the menus worked - I could open dialogs and close them by clicking the red-dot.


Otherwise, Slick would not respond to any keyboard or mouse events.
I tried a bunch of different things - including closing Slick.
Slick wouldn't close because I had modified buffers and I could not respond to the dialog asking what to do.
Then slick crashed.
See the attached.

There's a known issue where switching focus while in a command that prompts (prompt textbox in SE status area) will not clear the prompt. I've not seen it crash before. Does this sound like the steps you took before the crash?

Sounds about right.




Question: Using the "/" command on the command like, how can I search for a forward slash "/" ?
Escaping with a backslash doesn't do it.
The help doesn't mention it.

You need to use the alternate command (lowercase 'L') with alternate delimiter (e.g. '$'):

l $/

Just tried briefly to reproduce this and couldn't (you seem to have a knack). I'm on Lion, so maybe that's a difference. I need steps please. Thanks.
