What I meant above is: If we implement only [the trivial] part of binary I/O, then we also must write a separate documentation for it. > Maybe you could add those binary functions to the > «There is no support for:» section in the > http://software-lab.de/ersatz/README Well, it is there, implicitly. The items -- interprocess communication ('tell', 'hear', 'ipc', 'udp' etc.) -- databases (external symbols) are what that binary I/O is mainly for. > Or will it take less time for you to implement them ;) ? Implementation would take longer. It probably needs a different set of underlying Java I/O classes. > Anyway, I'm not even sure if wr is suitable for what I want: > writing image files like bitmap files from a list of bytes. > Is it? Or is 'wr only meant to be read with 'rd? 'wr' would be good, I think. The complement of 'rd' is 'pr'. A better idea: Why do you bother with ErsatzLisp at all? If you don't have Linux or another POSIX system, instead of starting the Java-VM you might as well start a Linux-VM and run real PicoLisp with all features, and at full speed :) ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:email@example.com?subject=Unsubscribe
