I ask about LME in Pocket PC
not about sysquake in PC
I wonder why is it so difficult to get a simple answer to a simple
The answers you are looking for are in the LME documentation.
I have never used (or heard of) LME, and the closest I have come
to a Pocket PC was about 5 feet away (and my friend didn't let me
play with it.) Still, I scanned through the documentation for you
and pointed out the relevant sections.
When you followed up to me in email, I pointed you to the specific
sections in the LME documentation. My reply was, and I quote,
And look at 'Libraries' in the Introduction main section;
and look at the 'LME Compatability Notes' main section.
If you had followed that advice, you would have seen,
LME for Pocket PC does not implement its own text editor. Functions
are stored in library files. To make their editing easier, library
files end with .lml.txt (double suffix).
This tells you the file format (text), what you need to do to
create LME source files (use your favourite text editor), and what
extension you need to use (.lml.txt)
In the next paragraph, you would also have seen,
LME finds libraries in the directory Lib in the same directory as
LME.exe. If you want to store libraries in other places, you should
add directories with the Options dialog or the command path (see above).
This answers your question about which directory to use, and also
tells you how to tell LME to look in other directories.
The LME Compatability Notes section that I referred you to has,
in its first bulleted paragraph,
Functions are stored in libraries, not in separate files. Except for
Palm devices which do not have a file system, libraries are files
with the suffix .lml. They contain a sequence of related functions.
They are made known to LME with the use instruction. use instructions
define a network of dependencies which permit to avoid name clashes.
Inside libraries, functions can be public or private. Functions can
also be stored directly in SQ files (Sysquake applications) and typed
at the command prompt.
The reference to .lml files rather than .lml.txt followed upon
some Libraries section text I did not quote above; LME can use
either .lml or .lml.txt on Pocket PC, but it is easier to edit .lml.txt
Note now the last sentance of the quoted paragraph:
Functions can also be stored directly in SQ files (Sysquake
According to the documentation I quoted in my previous posting
in this thread, Sysquake files are text files with .sq extensions.
And the quoted section in the LME Compatability Notes is saying that
LME can use those files directly. Thus if you had followed the
previously quoted material and tried text .sq files, that would
have worked (at least according to this documentation.)
So as best I can tell, the answers you were looking for were to be
found within the first three paragraphs of the two sections of
LME documentation that I pointed you to. Is being pointed to
precise sections of the documentation "so difficult to get a simple
answer" ? Are you indicating that you just wanted to be told
the answer, not to be shown exactly where you can read the
answer for yourself in the product documentation?
Lastly, I would point out that this is a Matlab newsgroup, not
an LME or Pocket PC newsgroup, and you asked LME Pocket PC
specific questions. It's about like asking for information
about a Palm OS SQL database on one of the Oracle newsgroups --
you might get lucky and -happen- to find someone that knew the
answer, but otherwise the best you can reasonably hope for is that
someone who knows their way around information systems will take
the time to investigate where to find the answer. As you are sure
to run into other LME related questions, is not being referred
to appropriate parts of the LME documentation more valuable to
you in the long term than just being told the bare factual answers?
