APL64_September Update

Postby Ajay Askoolum » September 30th, 2020, 12:34 pm

1. The menu in the screenshot does not have the Walk option. What facilities, if any, are contemplated for step by step execution of a function? A Watch window would be nice to examine the state of variables.

2. Is/Will there be a []CMDA? An enhancement that will return the results of []CMD to the session would be very welcome.

3. Time scale to availability? (for field testing).

Ajay,

Thanks for your comments. Below you will find the answers to each of your three questions:

Q1. The menu in the screenshot does not have the Walk option. What facilities, if any, are contemplated for step by step execution of a function? A Watch window would be nice to examine the state of variables.

A1. The Debug menu replaces the Walk menu in APL+Win with similar functionality. Refer to the pages 10-11 in the May 2019 Update for additional information. In APL64 the Debugged Function and State Indicator panes are automatically displayed when the APL64 interpreter is suspended in execution and hidden in other APL64 interpreter states. In APL64 these two debugging panes can be docked with the main window of the APL64 developer 'session' or floated independently of the main window.

Q2. Is/Will there be a ⎕CMDA? An enhancement that will return the results of ⎕CMD to the session would be very welcome.

A2. There is no ⎕CMDA system function; the administrator options are available on the ⎕CMD system function with the new left arguments.
We'll consider your enhancement request for ⎕CMD to return results to the session - Thanks.


Q3. Time scale to availability? (for field testing).

A3. The APL2000 Team is working to release a high quality product with superior features and excellent compatibility with APL+Win. We do not have an initial release date at this time.
