Works only with new CVS version of macros.dll.
Current CVS version allows only 1024 characters.
Not good enough.
An attachment with the alterations for macros2 created by deadlock is at
I do not have development software installed any more because my version of
VC 2005 does not yield a stable K-Meleon.exe. & I gave up trying anything.
Only Dorian's version of VC 2005 does create stable exes. It does even with the sources and libs that I used and that are at http://dhost.info/kmeleonskins/.meleon-build.7z
Free for all that want to try to compile K-Meleon.exe or a new macros plugin.
Some background info is in these subsequent 3 mails.
p.s. In case You (deadlock) change Your mind whether You need writing access to CVS and K-Meleon Download page as pre-condition to have any of Your work used or continuing to help in the development of K-Meleon You can contact me via mail.
I only come here or to the wiki when get info that spam has been posted and must be deleted.
If You still want the pre-conditions You will have to deal with the project owners. No idea who except Dorian.
In Answer to FW: macros2 To 'deadlock', 'James DeYoung', 'alain'
To build a Plugin You only need VC Express 2005.
Instructions are here: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/BuildKMeleonDistribution
deadlock's adapted source is at: http://dhost.info/kmeleonskins/.meleon-build.7z
deadlock other adapted things are still at .KM1.6b2 and .KM1.6b3 same web page.
deadlock did not want it when I wanted to put together a new beta consisting of and using HIS work. So I do not use HIS work anymore.
I also quit trying to finish 1.6 beta German translation.
Because much of the last chrome is AFAIK also HIS work.
deadlock insisted that he first needs CVS writing to do anything
and AFAIK posted that also in Forum.
alain is the only admin that still visits the Forum he needs to show his mail so that people can reach an admin. Else someone should make up his mind and make You admin.
Greetings and thanks for Your attention
FW: macros2 To 'guenter'
Good day Guenter,
I guess you did not expect to hear from me again. Here is the
situation. Someone asked on forum about PriorTabs.kmm. I told them the
limit for iniread and iniwrite was 256. Somehow Deadlock got involved and
found that the official CVS had been changed to 1024 from 512 in macros.dll
code. He has updated PriorTabs.kmm to use a different method and longer
In any case he asked me to ask you to compile a new macros.dll with
an even longer buffer. I am not sure buffer is the right word. I don't
know why he did not ask you directly.
If you have time and it seems reasonable to you to do this, would
you mind making a new macros.dll file? It seems to me if we are trying to
sew a new cinch on an old saddle for a dead horse, but I did promise to ask.
macros2 To "JamesD"
Update: CVS version was not good enough.
My largest URL has 1987 characters and didn't fail, because
I was already using a length of 2048 for chars.
I've downloaded layout.h from CVS, replaced 1024 with 4096,
saved it in DOS format and attached it to this email.
The buffers are now 16 times bigger than in KM 1.6b2.
You can send it to Guenter with instructions.
(He already has pre-configured sources.)
- copy functions.h to /macros2 directory
- compile macros2 with VS2005
