3290Robotype and UAS with clipwriter
- Aug 7, 2002Hugo: I got the two unzipped files in the previous e-mail
and re-retrieved your (new?) zip from:
(1) Your replacement Zip works fine. (I didn't bother to
figure out whether I've got software on-board that would
have allowed me to process your original zip - life has
enough problems ;-)
(2) E-mail "raw" files came through fine.
(2a) I was able to open the UAS library (in UltimaShell
not the UAS program but I'm sure its the same
difference). I didn't really do anything more than a
quick scroll down to make sure I could recognize the
contents as being clip-related.
(2b) The first time I tried it in RoboType it came up
showing no abbreviations but when I created a new library
and merged yours into it - it worked flawlessly and from
then on every time I tried to open the one you sent it
worked with no problems. - Go figure.
It looks like if both RoboType and UAS are active UAS
winds up getting first crack at everything preventing
RoboType from helping.
Maybe its possible to set the two libraries up so that
its possible to have UAS select the base replacement and
then have RoboType if desired complete the job. The
reason for this somewhat bizarre arrangement would be to
take advantage of RoboType's new ability to include
%PROMPT:Your prompt here%. It might thus be possible to
have the syntax of all the CLIP commands available from
RoboType with prompts for required "changeable" elements.
I've copied this to the NTB-off topic - before Jody gets
upset - though as you were, I'm not sure quite where the
boundaries of NTB are with its new "included" or
"associate" apps is.
Definitely looks like a fruitful area of investigation,
especially with the new "programmers" syntax-highlighting
version coming on-stream before NTB v5.
