Subject: MAX users in Warsaw

Urgent matter!

Is there somebody on the list that has any MAX-contacts in Warsaw,
Poland. I like to get in touch with a person who has good knowledge in
MAX, and if possible, with experience in MAX-applications in the field
of serial communication with laser disc players.
This Polish MAX-programmer is needed as a possible technical backup for
an installation of a video exhibition at an artgallery in Warsaw the
20th of June 1997. He/she will be awarded for the help.
Please contact me soonest if you have any clues that can lead me on.
Send mail directly to orange@oden.se

Thanks for your attention

Ooh, goodness! Pace has a Face.

Actually, the replies to my bug reports will probably be "yeah, we fixed
that." Unfortunately, the problems will persist in my old versions of
everything, and unlike conventional software bugs these ones will
eventually wear out my irreplaceable key disk (singular)...

I'll drop them a line anyway.

Hey, some of us are still quite happy with THINK C as the compiler for
writing MAX externals. (I also enjoy banging rocks together.)

Unfortunately, projects which use the Object C extensions have to be
multi-segment, and I seem to recall David saying something about
multi-segment projects being problematic (something to do with code
resource id's?). If this is not the case I'd love to use Object C rather
than vanilla C.

(OK, so I should probably buy CodeWarrier, plus a CD-ROM drive, plus more
memory for all my Macs, install PPC upgrades, sell them all and buy PPC
Macs instead, take them all to System 7.6, etc. etc.)

Hello Stephan.

Do you use "NewSpeechDoneProc" macro when you install "speech done"
callback proc?
I've suffered for this. But, this may not be the case if your code
crashes "immediately", not when the text is done....

Hope this helps.

Subject: C++ for MAX

Peter Castine wrote about THINK C's OOP-like implmentation (TCL).
I seem to remember UIowa's archive containing a application which
encapsulated
regular C functions in a C++ like "blanket" (or jumpsuit!?).
It was called something like Yacc.

I don't recall anyone referring to this before (though I caould be wrong).
Perhaps it might serve Mr Falesch's purposes.

Most of my objects are multi-segment these days.  I use CodeWarrior 11 no=
w,
and there is absolutely no problem with multi-segments, once you know how=

to do it.  I also used to do it in THINK C with no problem, just it's a b=
it
easier in CW.
