9599timer bug in NoteTab Lite; NoteTab publicity
- Dec 29, 2002I believe I've had this discussion before, but now believe that there is a
problem that may only occur in NoteTab Lite. Take these lines of code:
^!IfInRange hhmm 0854..0854 doit
and more commands, not needed for this illustration ...
What happens is that if I start the timer at 8:35, the instructions found
under :doit are carried out at 8:36, despite the fact that they aren't
supposed to be carried out until 8:54. I gather that no matter the result
of the if statement, the clip continues processing the next line.
I've tried some alternatives, such as putting a label :top just before the
if statement, then making the if statement read
^!IfInRange hhmm 0854..0854 doit Else top
and when I do this, the clip is never completed, even at the appointed
8:54. I believe I remember somebody saying that this was not a problem in
NoteTab Pro, but I usually use Lite even though I own Pro. Is this a bug,
or am I missing something?
Let me also take this opportunity to alert the folks at Fookes Software,
and others, of an audio feature on NoteTab which I created and which is
available on the web. this was an article for my now-defunct computer
magazine for the blind which I also submitted to Main Menu, a two-hour
weekly program on technology for the blind.
The Url to listen to the entire two-hour program which contains the segment is
With Winamp, it's easy to skip to the fourth segment, the one in question.
Or you can download the segment, I don't believe you can link directly to
it for on-line listening purposes, at
Enjoy, and thanks for the Clip help.
