This page is not for feature announcements.
This page is for:
1) Requests-suggestions to add features to the VM, that is, features which cannot be easily added within the image
2) You can't-won't do the feature for some reason: you lack expertise, hardware, and/or time.
I want the ability to check modification dates on files. I think most platforms include this information, but I don't see how to get it from the image.
On UNIX you can fake it with a named pipe. From a shell run "mkfifo /tmp/fifo; sh /tmp/squeakfifo", then have Squeak write commands to that same fifo. – FeatureWishList
- It's there! It may have been there before, but it's really clear in the 1.30 file list. FileDirectory's contain modification date as part of their structure. Thank you Squeak team! – MarkGuzdial
I'd like a back door to be able to execute something on the native platform, i.e., fire an AppleScript applet on a Mac, or execute a command line in DOS or UNIX Shell.
Several people would like to have serial support. I've hacked up primitive support for the Mac, but it's just open/close/read/write, no support for parameters such as baud rate etc. –
