Your patch applies against the current CVS tree with a few little
tweaks. The updated patch in this email works against the current CVS
tree. In addition I've added "connectFocus" to the "insert symbol" and
"insertField" dialogs. Your patch seems to work as advertized on the unix build
but does not work at all on the gnome build because you haven't
implemented any functionality to the gnome frame and event code.
hj could you implement the changes needed to gnome build? It would be good
to get this done before checking the patch into the tree unless a gnome
volenteer steps up (anybody?)
I haven't studied the changes to fv_View and fp_run enough to know whether
they will now break the windows build. Could a Windows developer have a
look and see what this patch does to them?
Finally hj could you update your source tree to the current CVS? It is
actually quite easy to use cvs.
If you're stuck behind a firewall and can't use cvs I can put a current
abi.tar.gz file with just the compressed source code on an anonymous ftp
server. Do you do this already Sam?
Quoting from the abisource web page:
In addition I include the command option "-z3" in the checkout to only
copy compressed files. This speeds things up enormously over slow
1.Set the environment variable CVSROOT to
2.Run the command cvs login. The password for user anoncvs is anoncvs.
3.Run the command cvs checkout abi.
This will create a complete copy of the source tree in your current
4.As noted in the build instructions, you may need zlib,
libpng, abidistfiles, wv, libiconv, or expat. (If you are a Win32
developer, you definitely need them). If you are on UNIX, you will
also need to check out unixfonts for an installation of AbiSuite. Newer
version of Linux based on glibc 2.1 or later will not require
libiconv. Most other versions of UNIX will require libiconv. You can get
these packages from CVS directly by typing
cvs checkout zlib libpng expat wv libiconv abidistfiles unixfonts
in the same directory you were in when youtyped cvs checkout abi above.
If you prefer not to set the environment variable, you can
include the CVSROOT location in your cvs command lines with the
A note to Windows CVS users: You may wish to use the
following script as a .bat file to start CVS.
