Due to the noise of my HDD annoying me whilst using NetSurf, I've written
a short Obey file to automatically set the CSD to the RAM disk when
Netsurf is run.
I've added a line in the run file after Wimpslot -min 1600k:
The obey file setdir is as follows:
IfThere RAM::0.$ Then Else ChangeDynamicArea -RamFSSize 2048K
IfThere RAM::0.$.NSLogs Then Wipe RAM::0.$.NSLogs.* ~C F ~R ~V Else CDir
That should be three lines long. The lines should start as follows:
I hope someone finds this useful ;P

Err.... probably. It could be done most easily by compiling with
support for dynamic areas, but this would prevent it running on
anything less than RISC OS 3.5, - restricting Virtual Acorn people
Would it be possible to rewrite the malloc/calloc routines to use the
module area, or the wimp heap, or something?

Jolly good. That means there should be a new build there shortly!
I've checked in some code - most form elements are handled correctly
now - it can display text boxes, text areas, radio icons, checkboxes,
submit/reset buttons and combo boxes. These can be manipulated by the
user - text areas are handled by an external editor, and you can drag
and drop text files into them.
Code to get/post form info needs to be done next - am I right in
thinking that CURL has nice routines to do this?
Won't be long before we can post to TIB with NetSurf, eh? :)
If you view a file with NetSurf and then load that file into Zap edit it, and
try to save it, It says "This file is already open". Should it not close the
file once it has fetched it?
Also, I have been playing around with some of the Sprites and Templates. How
do I add them to the CVS? Do I need a password?
Selecting text on a grey background such as at http://banners.iconbar.com/
doesn't display because the highlight is the same colour. Maybe highlighting
text should invert all the colours?
Yay. I've now got a decent development system - a Linux box, with a
gcc cross compiler, and Virtual Acorn running through Wine. I can now
I've fixed the background anti-aliasing for the fonts, and started some
support for form elements - textboxes, submit buttons etc.
I've commited the changes to the CVS, and uploaded a binary to http://
www.angelfire.com/me/elizabethfromcheddar/netsurf/ns20021229.zip of all
I was taking a look at the colour support, Very Impressive! I loaded up this
page http://www.jagular.com/color-tables-17.html and all the colours work :)
Just colour names to do now?
Another thing I was looking at was tables. I am usure if colspan and rowspan
is working in netsurf because of problems that occured when viewing
Regards & Happy New Year,
I mentioned this a while ago, but it still seems to have the same problem.
When you drag the window off the screen and back on again it fails to redraw
properly. Example at http://netsurf.f2o.org/redraw.jpg
Happy New Year,
