Not a problem: if one person doesn't understand what they're seeing, then at least a hundred more won't understand it either, and it's very good to have a discussion about it archived on a public mailing list then. FWIW, I don't know why Zope doesn't display anything useful in the console anymore, and I don't even know whether that's unique to Windows. >> Or another way (something I'd never do in real life, but I guess some >> people do) > I always run Zope in the console. So do I, but there's difference: I open a DOS box and type "bin\runzope" myself. What I never do is use the Start menu "shortcut". A DOS box you open yourself stays visible even if Zope dies ungracefully, and after the first time you type "bin\runzope" you only have to hit two keys (up-arrow ENTER) to start it again. > The only reason I even use the Windows version is for development.

When I develop, I restart Zope > all the freeking time, so the faster the restart, the better. Doesn't the ZMI have a "restart Zope" button? If you open your own DOS box, then a sloppy all-keyboard restart dance is "Ctrl+Break up-arrow ENTER", and a careful all-keyboard restart dance is "Ctrl+C up-arrow ENTER". The latter gives Zope a chance to close files gracefully, but by the same token it takes longer for Zope to shut down. "Ctrl+Break" kills the process instantly (and runs some risk of leaving data in I/O buffers without writing it to disk). _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
