  • Old DLL Request

    Does anyone happen to still have a copy of Worm's old Global-List / Delimited-List Helper DLL? Am referring to his thread @HERE

    Nb.
    I know it's a longshot, but It'd be a real bonus if someone also had both
    - the Functions Info file
    - the Sample.apz
    ... mentioned at the top of his thread (and which he once had up on warmuskerken.com)

    I'm not sure I'll be able to find it for you, but what specifically do you want to be able to do with the DLL?

      Well, I'm not entirely sure yet, IP. LOL! That thread initially caught my eye after doing a forum search to see if Worm had ever done any work with Table Sorting. Then kpsmith's "lightbulbs going off" comment caught my attention:

      ..and figured it'd probably be majorly interesting to take a look, given Worm had a hand in it.

      But specifically, I wanted to check out the alleged functions regarding both 'sorting' and 'duplicate removal'. I knows there's plenty existing code for both these things already (in fact, I actually started new threads on these things a few days ago, to offer up custom function solutions for newbies). But figured it might also be good to have one of Worm's solutions on file, as it'll likely be very robust.

      Anyway, if u do happen to have it, that'd be superduper-razzledazzle-funkyfriggin awesome. But, if u can't find it, no biggy. No need to go turning your HDDs upside-down & inside-out on my account.

        I'm sorry I cannot help you there, I have no idea if I even had that DLL in the past. As for sorting though, it is probably best to use the table.sort function for Lua objects as it is specifically optimized for that. When you want to learn about other sorting algorithms, it would probably work out for you to look into the explanation of the algorithms. Looking at the code for i.e. a quicksort algorithm might not help you at all, as there are several implementations, which might differ. One implementation of quicksort for example uses the best-of-three method to select a pivot, while another simply selects random value or the middle value as pivot.

        Understanding why selecting the right pivot is so important is more useful than understanding the implementation code. Anyhow, I can't help you with the DLL however I could help you with a removing duplicates algorithm if you'd like

          No worries, IP. That's cool bananas. The DLL was an 'interest' thing, more so than any special need for it.

          Thanks for the advice on sorting algoritms, sensai..
          Will remember that and re-evaluate,

          Cheers too, for the offer of help with 'duplicates' algos. At this stage, I already have several algos for removing duplicates from tables which I've managed to successfully adapt to my needs. They can be a touch difficult to understand though - so that offer for help might just come back to haunt you - LOL!

          Nb.
          And hey, if you've heard from Dean lately, tell him to get his ass back over here. I miss his sense of humour!

            Nice! I think it's awesome that people are still using AMS, sharing their ideas and learning in the progress. It's a shame this product hasn't been transformed into something modern, AMS for Web, mobile and software sounds interesting.

            Anyhow, which Dean do you refer to? MadDogDean or RizlaUK. I speak with MadDogDean regularly, however I kind of lost touch with Riz unfortunately.

              Same Thoughts about AMS dear IP.

              Great Software and its a good base to be transformed or upgraded to the next level for building apps like mobile.

              Do you recommend a software that can build apps for mobile with a mentality similar to AMS ?

                Hi Sameer, I think you would like Cordova, which allows you to create apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. There are plenty plugins available that allow you to access the device's sensors, bluetooth connections and more. Combine this with something like Ionic or Visual Studio and you'll be able to make cool apps without a too complex programming language.

                  Ah yeah, forgot we used to have 2 Deans!

                  Was actually referring to Riz. Always enjoyed his banter and especially dug his wicked, wry humour. Besides which, his code contribution to this community was enormous. I remember him having some domestic woes back around 2011/2012 which saddened me to hear. Though, he always struck me as the sort of bloke who'd land on his feet, no matter what. I guess his kids would almost be teenagers now, so I'd imagine that whatever he's doing, he'll have his hands full!

                  Never had much interaction with MadDogDean, though his avatar is impossible to forget!
                  LOL yes, 2 Deans!
                  Code:
                  sRizla = "Dean I"
                  sMadDog = "Dean II"
                  
                  i = tonumber(sRizla + sMadDog)
                  s = tostring(i)
                  
                  Output(s) = Mad Dogs and Englishmen!
                  Don't try to run that!


                  @Sammer,
                  There is one RAD software for web development that's kinda along the lines of AMS. And that's 'WYSIWYG Web Builder'. Despite its amateurish-sounding name, it's actually very good, IMO. Although it was originally designed for website development, I believe it's now possible to do mobile-apps with it. More info in regards to that: here

                  Ahough I've never personally looked into the mobile-apps aspect of it, I can tell you that for general web-dev, it's does have a mentality similar to AMS. Has been around for many years (currently in version 14), has a large community forum with many user-developed extensions/addons available. Might be worth checking out, anyway. here

                  @IP,
                  Cordova looks interesting, mate. Didn't know about that one. Cheers for the link.

                    Hi sameer,

                    Just a late addition to the list of suggestions (in regards your inquiry about other RAD tools for mobile app development), this one might also be worth looking into: Xojo: https://www.xojo.com

                    Have only just started taking a look at it myself, so can't really comment on its actual usefulness at this stage. But it does look quite intriguing as far as cross-platform development goes. And they do seem to have an active forum community going on there, too: https://forum.xojo.com

                    So, might be worth taking a look at.
