 ;)  "Nihil facil est" --> you can omit "est" --> "Nihil facilis"

Just in case you really want to put it on your family crest. (Ooops.. if everything is not easy, that means everything is easy..).

Nevertheless, would not "SlickEdit optimus et facilis" be appropriate?

Yours, Karsten

Would be really nice if you'd provide a translation to a human readable language too ;)

Hi,
    I just recieved my official copy of SE. Having loaded the macros in the cumulative hotfixes zip manually whilst I was using the trial version, I tought I would try the 'official' way, but this didn't work for me, despite the directions in an earlier post in this thread by Nathan.

Basically the problem appears to be with the latest 'hotfix.e' macro. For me (Running Linux - Fedora 6) the builtin function '_chmod' does not appear to quite work as the manual says:

Code: [Select]
NOTE: Under UNIX this function operates like the chmod command. See man page for this command for syntax of arguments
I ended up applying the follwing patch to get it to work:

Code: [Select]

+++ /home/mike/.slickedit/11.0.2/hotfixes/hotfix.e 2006-12-22 19:35:16.000000000 +0000

    int temp_wid=0, orig_wid=0;
    status = _open_temp_view(dest, temp_wid, orig_wid);
    if (status < 0) {
-      _chmod("644 " maybe_quote_filename(dest));
+      status = _chmod("u=rw,g=r,o=r " maybe_quote_filename(dest));
+      if (status < 0) {
+         line = "*** Could not change permissions on file: " :+ dest :+ " -- " :+ get_message(status);
+         hotfixLogAction(line);
+      }
    } else {
       _delete_temp_view(temp_wid);
       activate_window(orig_wid);

The _chmod command appears to require that permissions are specified using symbolic notation. Can anyone confirm this?

I have now succesfully applied the cumulative service. One thing I note though is that when I ask SE to take me to a definition of a slick-c function that I know has its latest version in one of the 'hotfix' macros, it opens the 'old' version from the base SE installation directory. This could be a little confusing don't you think. Shouldn't any 'overriding' file in the 'hotfixes' directory be selected in preference?

OK, I see now - "Go to SlickC Definition" from the "Macro" menu is dependent on the files which have been tagged in the Slick-C tag file. I've now added the tree of files under my <config directory>/hotfixes and everything's as I'd expect. Perhaps there should be some mechanism of auto adding 'hotfix' macro files to the Slick-C tag file?
