ARexx scripting (#5) - WRITEEDITOR ARexx Command and Blank Lines (#39) - Message List

WRITEEDITOR ARexx Command and Blank Lines
 solved

Hi,

I have written a couple of ARexx scripts for YAM which generate e-mails using the WRITEEDITOR command. I'm using the 2.5 nightlies and at some point fairly recently a problem has appeared with my scripts (unfortunatly I'm not sure exactly when as I don't run these scripts that often), which were working fine.

Now, when the script tries to write a line without any content (only a CR character "0D") it does not appear in the e-mail. The end result is that the generated e-mail has no blank lines. I tried adding a space before the line feed so the line had some content but this did not work. If I force the script to add a single non-whitespace character before the line feed on a blank line it then works as expected.

I have tried changing the word-wrap settings in prefs in case that might have an effect, but there is no change.

This seems like it might be a bug, but I wondered if anyone here had any thoughts (could I have changed another prefs option that would have this effect?) before I post it to the bug tracker.

Thanks in advance,

Robert

    I've done a bit more research and this seems to be a bug in texteditor.mcc 15.21 as it also occurs using the TEXT ARexx command on the TextEditor-Demo program. Version 15.20 works as expected, but of course YAM insists on 15.21.

    I have raised an entry on the Source Forge bug tracker for texteditor.mcc.

    Ah ok, thanks for the report and the immediate posting on the TE.mcc bugtracker. We will have a look at it ASAP and see if we can generate a proper fix for it.

    I am sorry to highjack this topik. But I could not open a new one.

    Is it possible to change identities (2.8 ) using AREXX?

  • Message #372

    Well, you successfully created a new topic. See here http://yam.ch/discussion/topic/101

    And no, there is currently no way of using AREXX to change the identities introduced in 2.8. If something like that is required please file a new ticket.
