I wish you an happy new year
I include two weeks ago in CVS a preliminary version of history managment,
on the same basis than IDL since 6.0
When you restart a session, you can browse in previous commands you type during previous
session(s) (up-arrow). Ascii file is saved in ~/.gdl/history
I tested with success on x86 (debian) and x86_64 (mandriva), but I cannot test on Mac OS X.
Could someone try that and give feedback (does it compile out of the box ??).
(What should I modified ?)
If all goes well, I then should be able to add the /RECALL_COMMANDS keyword in HELP procedure.
May -be we can later evolve closer to last IDL fonctionnalities
( postfixed with <-- date/hour--> info, see in ~/.idl/itt/r*/history )
As a corolar, please give also feedback for the HOST/HOSTNAME/get_hostnameminor improvment
form the Mac OS X side (if trouble when compiling gdljournal.cpp, you can use the 1.10 version
Thanks a lot
I have succeeded compiling it on a Mac OS X (10.5). readline works great. I had to set some environment variables on the Mac before GDL would find the required libraries and compile. But it compiled successfully and works.
