Beta 242.02
« on: December 27, 2017, 01:34:01 PM »
Beta location

Changes since last:
  • The variables WEIDU_ARCH, WEIDU_OS and WEIDU_VER are defined when the log file is written.
  • Optimisation to ITEM_EFFECT_TO_SPELL: much less copying of files.
  • Add insert_point variable to ITEM_EFFECT_TO_SPELL.
  • Certain file-existence checks do not return false for files which exist but which are too large for the size to be expressible with a 32-bit integer.
  • TEXT_SPRINT works like SPRINT instead of like LOCAL_SPRINT.
  • Fix variable-evaluation bugs in ADD_KIT.
  • DELETE properly accepts filenames of any case on Linux.
  • AT_NOW makes available the return value of the inferior process.
  • SNPRINT can return the N last characters instead of just the first ones.
  • ADD OUTER_SNPRINT.
  • HANDLE_CHARSETS can infer charsets based on the language code in addition to the language name.
  • Document SPRINTF.
  • Fix documentation of the kit value in the CRE format.
  • Fix corruption issue in fj_are_structure affecting PST.

If things go as planned, a stable version will be released in a couple of weeks.

That was the reason for 242.01 ;) Too bad I forgot to release it stable.

Can you try with the current HEAD? The old code works for me but it's technically incorrect, so maybe that's it.

Fix variable-evaluation bugs in ADD_KIT.
If I may ask, what exactly does this entail ? Just out of curiosity.

Passing arguments as variables would in some cases result in the variables not being evaluated. It's not usually done, so it's mostly a minor issue.

The variables WEIDU_ARCH, WEIDU_OS and WEIDU_VER are defined when the log file is written.

Not entirely related, and not terribly urgent, but a feature suggestion: the log file should make mention of the result of GAME_IS at the time of its creation. I can't tell you how many times I've had users report "x mod component isn't working! Weidu.log attached." And I can't tell what game is being played and thus, in some instances, what the mod's intended behavior is or how it's breaking.

It's a small thing, but it would be useful to have that information at a glance at the top of the log file.

Such information is included inside .debug file but people don't often post it so it would be definitely helpful.
