OK tonight I will get 0.0.11 going again, move it to a different directory,
and upload a clean version of 0.0.12.
>> It all seemed to update my CVS version OK, but when I ran it, the program
load seemed to crash when it got to the help section (as per messages in the
MS Dos window, but when it crashed the MS Dos window closed). If I try to
run it from Python IDLE, I get a syntax error c:\Boa\Boa.py, line 378, which
does not seem to exist.
> Running Boa in IDLE seems to be tricky :) First remove the whitespace on
the last line in Boa.py. Also the way IDLE runs modules is not exactly the
same as running the file directly in the interpreter. You'll have to
manually add Boa's path to sys.path in the IDLE shell. Then it works, but
you also need to hope that there are no errors on startup because cleanup
isn't always successfull. This partially a problem with running Boa in the
same interpreter as IDLE and problems with mixing wxWindows and Tkinter.
I do not normally run it under IDLE. It was only an attempt to see what was

your wxPython to 2.3.0. I've not been able to work around the accelerator
table bug in 2.3.1 Also, if you don't want the DOS box to close, open one
explicitly by going Start->Run->Command, cd to the Boa directory and run it
by typing: python Boa.py Useful for reading error messages.
OK I will get 2.3.x going first.
I meant in the dos box you should cd to your Boa directory. There is a
shortcut for this; Open a normal windows folder and browse to the Boa
directory. Once there go Start->Run-Command and the DOS box should start in
the Boa directory. I'd like to find out the reason for this crash, so this
error is the only clue so far.
I have kept an archive copy of the version that crashed so I will try it out
with the dos window to see if I can see the reporting and let you know if

The crash also happened to me on 98 (there is nothing useful in the
BOS box) but it only happened the first time and I could not reproduce
it again (deleting & reinstalling did not crash again). I will look
into this again when I have time :(
