Hello,

As fast test, I've noted a crash with this new lgob-iliad release:

Code:
root@ereader:/media/card/Programs/Toolbox$ lua _files/Toolbox.lua  | ./_files/xx  -p
   0.001: ./_files/xx: started (debug=0, forward=1)
lua: _files/modules/sysinfo.lua:265: The GObject doesn't have the property sort_column_id!
stack traceback:
	[C]: in function 'set_sort_column_id'
	_files/modules/sysinfo.lua:265: in function 'ui_init'
	_files/modules/sysinfo.lua:357: in main chunk
	[C]: in function 'dofile'
	_files/Toolbox.lua:60: in function <_files/Toolbox.lua:60>
	[C]: in function 'main'
	_files/Toolbox.lua:87: in main chunk
	[C]: ?
  53.046: ./_files/xx: Done
The mentioned line shows:
Code:
col:set_sort_column_id(i-1)
while "col" is defined as:
Code:
local col = gtk.TreeViewColumn.new_with_attributes(coldef[1], coldef[2], "text", i-1)
It worked in v0.1.8.

EDIT: just discovered that examples/Navigator.lua also has this problem, so the regression comes from lgob-0.11.1.

Thanks,
Iņigo

Thanks for the report an the details. I mailed Lucas, and wil post a new release when the bug is solved. Please revert to the previous ipk until then...
For this you may need to uninstall the new version first (with the command ipkg remove lua5.1-iliad lgob-iliad): just installing the old version with ipkg will not work because of the lower version number)

Can I use pipe in Lua script?

I want to write a lua script which calls a command and redirect the output of that command back to lua script. In C, I use FILE *p = popen(). I wonder if I can do the same thing easily in lua script. Thanx for help.

It's called io.popen()
Code:
  local f = io.popen("ls -l")        -- runs command
  local buf = f:read("*a")          -- read output of command
  f:close()
  print(buf)

Thanx. I find io.popen() now. I looked for them in the wrong section.

added:
another question:
how do I get the size of buf?

added 2:
I am trying using the length operator #.

gdk_pixbuf_loader_write() not available in lgob?

It's quite strange. I can't call gdk_pixbuf_loader_write using the form:
Code:
local gpldr = gdk.PixbufLoader.new()	
local success = gdk.PixbufLoader.write(gpldr, file_buf, ret, nil)
or
Code:
local gpldr = gdk.PixbufLoader.new()	
local success = gpldr:write(file_buf, ret, nil)
So I checked with Navigator.lua and pixbuf.def and found it strange (as the attached image). In pixbuf.def, there is an entry for gdk_pixbuf_loader_write(), but not listed on Navigator.lua.

When building lgob, the log file (./lgob-9.09/gdk/log) shows that gdk_pixbuf_loader_write() is not handled (no code is generated)

This is (probably) because of the second parameter

Code:
defFunction('gdk_pixbuf_loader_write',
        {
                class = 'GdkPixbufLoader',
                since = '0.1',
                args = {'GObject* none', 'unhandled none', 'gsize none', 'GError** full'},
                ret = 'boolean none'
        }
)
This is (probably) caused by the fact that lgob's code generator does not understand the corresponding type (yet)

Code:
gboolean  gdk_pixbuf_loader_write  (
  GdkPixbufLoader *loader,
  const guchar *buf,
  gsize count,
  GError **error);
I'll check this with Lgob's author...

Edit: I just got a replay form Lucas: The analyse was correct, it will be fixed soon in a Lgob update. Il update the Iliad package after that...

The # operator or string.len() probably both do what you want. Beware that these do not stop on '\0'...

Code:
> a='xxx\0yyy'
> print(a)
xxx
> print(#a)
7
> print(string.len(a))
7

Update: lgob-iliad-0.1.11.ipk

I've just build a new version of lgob-iliad: lgob-iliad-0.1.11.ipk. It can be downloaded at: https://dev.mobileread.com/dist/hans...iad-0.1.11.ipk

It (should) solve the issues with gtk.TreeViewColumn.set_sort_column_id() [see message 106] and gdk.PixbufLoader.write() [see message 111]

This build is based on lgob-9.11.2

As always: feedback is welcome...

I just tried lgob9.11.2 on Debian5. When I execute a example, I got the following error message:

You didn't forget make install, did you?

I think that I did do a make install for each directory in lgob. In case I missed one, I repeated "make install" again. The error still exists.

I looked at Lgob again, but I see no reason for a missing handle_log()?!?! It was changed since lgob-9.09, but there are no specific version dependencies for this function...
  • It is implemented in gobject: can you see it in lgob-9.11.2/gobject/src/iface.c?
  • Maybe you have some older gobject.so somewhere in your Lua path (the default install goes to /usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/lgob/gobject.so)
  • Otherwise, you might have have to 'use the force'

Thanx.
The problem is solved.
I found old lgob libs in /usr/lib. After removing them, and doing "make install" again, the problem disappeared.
