Hi Mansur, > Happy New year to all!
A happy New Year to you, and to all readers! :) > but I get runtime errors: > [/root/.pil/history:1] File lock: Invalid argument This must be the fcntl() call in lockFile() (in "src/io.c"). It gets passed the constant arguments F_SETLKW and F_RDLCK. What might be goes wrong here? > # ./pil app/main.l -main -go > DB write: Invalid argument > ... > -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 2885162388670120960 Jan 1 11:57 1 <------- > Look at file size: It seems that the runtime system can't handle 64-bit file offsets. When a PicoLisp database is created, the first two blocks are written. In case of the demo application, the first DB file has a block size (see "app/er.l") of 512 bytes: (3 +Role +User +Sal) # 512 Prevalent objects Thus, two blocks have a size of 1024 bytes, which is 0x400 in hex. If we look at the above file size : (hex 2885162388670120960) -> "280A27E800000400" we see that the upper 32 bits of the size contain garbage. This indicates that either 'off_t' isn't 64-bits wide, or the library can't handle 64-bit file offsets. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
