Quoting David Gowers:
There is a flag for making a parasite undoable (GIMP_PARASITE_UNDOABLE?)
Are you saying that this flag doesn't work? It does for me in PyGimp
-- I use it most of the time.
I don't think that flag's name is exposed in Script-fu but it does
appear to work fine when flag is hardcoded as "2" and it does
precisely that which I needed, thanks.
This looks like a Script-fu bug. PyGimp doesn't do this, it just
returns the parasite itself.
There does not appear to be a way to create multiple parasites with
the same name -- the "*-parasite-attach" function changes the value of
the existing parasite. Is there a reason for the parasite to be
enclosed doubly within a list?
After further consideration, I do not think it is a bug; the original
author was probably providing for the future case of being able to
pass glob patterns and receiving a list of matching results (where
each item in the list is a list itself).
I did some tests on this awhile ago, and IIRC they [tattoos] don't get
reused until a very long time (about 2^31 iterations of creating new
layers/vectors/channels). Much the same as IDs in that respect.
I was hoping that would be the case; again, precisely that which I desired.
Thank you for your responses.
