Thanks for the quick comment. Unless I'm missing something (quite possible...nay, likely), the triangle in the upper left launches a File Open dialog at the requested location. That's cool and useful, but a bit different. The use case I had in mind was wanting access to the folder *in the

2017-06-28 Thread Glenn Hoetker
I hope this isn't painfully obvious to everyone but me, but I'd found it really frustrating until I found a solution. So, I thought I'd share. (If that's not appropriate traffic for the mailing list, I'd appreciate a more veteran hand letting me know. I'm still observing the norms.) Issue:

[racket-users] Naive question on how to capitalize only the first word of a string

2017-06-19 Thread Glenn Hoetker
I'm quite new to Racket/LISP, so I hope this isn't breathtakingly obvious. Can someone please tell me the best way to capitalize just the first word in a multiword string. So, given the string "it was a dark and stormy night", I would like to get "It was a dark and stormy night". I see

With help from this group, I've written my first baby-program in Racket and would really appreciate any feedback on how to make it more idiomatic, efficient and well-formatted (I struggle with where to break lines). Thank you in advance. The purpose is to fix the irregular capitalization of

[racket-users] Built-in way to list all children of a directory?

2017-06-27 Thread Glenn Hoetker
Naive question, here. As far as I can tell, (directory-list some-path) yields a list of files and directories immediately below some-path. I wish to capture all files and directories in some-path or any of the sub-directories of some-path. I didn't find an obvious option for doing so. Before

I'm afraid I don't have a suggestion, but a question. The code you provided makes sense to me and duplicates something I'd like, but I'm unsure how to enable it in DrRacket. May I ask how you did so? Thank you. Glen On Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 6:11:12 PM UTC+10, Gregor Kopp wrote: >
