Hello, Stephen is right, using Python's os.sep is much better than using DIR-SEPARATOR. On Mon, Feb 24, 2014 at 9:36 PM, Pat David patda...@gmail.com wrote: Could someone with a better grasp of the material chime in to help iron this out so that we can possibly include it as either a

Pat, I did look into the DIR-SEPARATOR (DIR_SEPARATOR on python?) constant. It did not appear to be documented anywhere in the gimp docs that I could find with a search engine. From an old scheme script I found posted I was able to find the following: The DIR-SEPARATOR constant appears to

Hi Stephen! You can just leave it as an ODT file. I'll make the stylistic changes required to fit the website HTML. Give me a little time and I'll make the conversion and get it up to test. Thanks for the contribution! -- pat david http://blog.patdavid.net

Stephen, Just a couple of notes. There are some concerns about the introduction of the term macro in the tutorial and the sense with which it's used. Also, saul has asked me to relay to you: have him look into the DIR-SEPARATOR constant. Using it would obviate about half of his code. If you

Pat, The conversion to compatible HTML went much faster than I imagined. It looks like getting everybody comfortable with the tutorial is going to be the longer part of the process. I looked at the notes, if we need to make some changes we can, I would rather not make a lot of changes if
