Hello
I have read you are rewriting TNT Basic. If possible, I would like you NOT to incorporate limiting features like :
- Pausing after coming back from another window. This is not Mac like, and no other application has this limitation : when you click inside a window, the app normally should run. I hope this is not compulsory because some TNT constraint.
- Cmd-R which Restart the App from zero. If they want, programmers can program it (except I don't really see the interest of it...). BUT if they want to use cmd-R for anything else (like Redo used in many apps), the feature Restart is unsurpassable which is very frustrating by generating a general zeroing of already built situation in the game.
- Other features of the same type I have not seen or remembered. More generally, let programmers program, and even if YOU like one feature, let freedom to users to implement it if they want...

Welcome back!

Long time no see Maxime!

Don't worry, I agree with your views. I hope to allow the programmer to create their own menus for windowed applications, and although they should be governed by Apple's Human Interface Guidelines (which obviously cover the CMD key shortcuts) the designer should be free to implement what they wish. As you say, this is a programming language so let people program with it!

Vive la programmer! (excuse my dodgy French)

Long Time...

Long time I wrote, and for criticisms ! To be serious, the forum became unreadable with so many Spams, brand new every day ! And I programmed a little less those times because other hobbies.
Thanks for your rather uneasy job, I don't even imagine how you can do !

Thanks Max

The spam got really bad at one point, we had 8 pages of Russian Porn in one of the forums, but we got rid of it. We still get the junk but I'm pretty much on top of it these days.

Why do I do it? Well we needed a full time Moderator on here and I drew the short straw! I love TNT though, it's a great little language and I didn't want to see it fade away. The Mac needs something like this and we should be promoting and supporting it. And so, here I am...
