cREVGeneral is an example of where recursion would be a problem. In the
common library there are getProp and setProp handlers that depend on lock
messages. The handlers intercept the message and in some cases need to

I guess I see your perspective. For me it’s totally the right and natural
It’s automatically reset at the end if the handler. Personally I’d go the
other way and say that if the lock messages were set command calls trapped
by anything above in the hierarchy should also not get executed.
Yes, for the purposes it was designed for (stopping the triggering of
system messages) the "lock messages" command is very useful.
The problem with getProp and setProp is that those triggers occur in
response to *custom* properties, not system properties.
As originally implemented (and as

great news for me thank you. on top of that I can run 1 of these

thanks for the links to the benchmarks.

What are the chances I will get similar performance using a stack and httpd
to process http requests . as i would using lc server .. if the
performance is similar, i feel more confident building using this form
. i'm not producing HTML code . just passing encrypted arrays back
it was my goal to benchmark httpd ..but didn't get that far since it maxed
out the cpu and didn't let up...then i took out httpd..still did
that...and thats how i got to testing an entirely blank new stack.
must be a windows thing. i will be running it on digital ocean

If you're not using any libraries
An internet speed test is the only reliable way to determine your actual ISP
bandwidth at any given moment, and that only after making sure your local area
network is not actively downloading or uploading anything, or at least anything
significant. Throughput from a source can only tell you how
thanks for those tools Mark. I just tested it again on a plain blank

It is true that you paid for a 190Mbit connection. Not all servers will be able
to saturate that size of a pipe. The amount a service can pump out will be
based on many factors like level of network activity at that moment, health of
the hops between you and the server, general network traffic

I downloaded it in about 2 minutes - at 40MBits/s download .
Which prompted me to check the speed. When I upgraded and paid extra it
was 190MBits/s, so they are cheating me - need to find time to phone the

Just poking around, a manifest is like a config file for the app. As I
mentioned, your installer maker solution may have a way to configure one. If
not, apparently there are solutions that allow you to post process your
executable to include one.
Also worth considering, in the Windows tab of
oic user agent means something other than what I was thinking. For me an agent
is a local listening process.

Hmm, thanks for the discussion. I see that it is not a straightforward issue,
and I am probably forced to get my hands dirty in the world of Windows. I am
aching for a very simple set of step-by-step instructions, but of course that
is not the job of anyone on this list! BTW, I am also asking

Well I took this as a chance to dip my toes in the GitHub waters. I
created an account, signed my contributor agreement with LiveCode, and
linked my GitHub to LiveCode.
I made a commit (but no pull request) on
docs/dictionary/object/videoClip.lcdoc and it was pretty painless ;)
Hi folks, I wanted to benchmark the httpd library and decided to create a
command line server application.
I run it using "-ui" command ...
and I use the "on Startup" message to print out a welcome message"
thats all I have so far.
But my executable process is using up 100% of the core .
Sorry, I think it ended up on the list because I used the email address Jacque
uses just for this list, as I copied it direct from a contribution by her.
Still don’t quite understand though! As you say, it’s good info anyway.

FYI: As far, as a short test showed, LiveCode is sending two different user
agents (if you don't overwrite the http headers). User agent: "LiveCode
(Win32)" and "LiveCode (MacOS)". So probably I will be at least able to
redirect my Windows requests to another host.
