seems like form could go either string or hex. need at least 2 forms
Gregg Irwin
@greggirwin

@Oldes, I think we're seeing the same patterns.

@ne1uno where are hex colors used as binary! in Red? e.g. pixels in images are tuples.

My suggestion is to look at to-hex and see if it can be extended (I wish it were a mezz, for easier playing). It's used in the Red codebase is in the JSON emitter, for \u chars, but a dozen places or so in %.r support files in the core. It returns an issue, as R2 did, but bear in mind that they were a string type in R2 and a word type in Red. @ne1uno already noted that it's an alternative approach to enbase.

Format will likely have hex output support, as a side note.

For now, I'd wrap enbase, though we have a number of places "hex" is used in a name, but for different purposes. form-as-hex could be a name to use as a playground.

I wonder why there must be so many words about it.. as I said.. if there is mold and form producing same result, why not to have form produce something different and reduce the required code? Never mind.. time to read some book and sleep ;-)
I introduced this change in my Rebol fork 2 years ago, and I was not hit with any side effect. I can just enjoy the result, because when I trace some binary values, I really don't have to see them decorated with #{ and }.

And as I review quickly some code.. I should remove many mold calls... bad habit from R2 days... because:
Time               | Evals  | S.made | S.expa | Memory      | Code
1.0x (1μs)         | 2      | 2      | 0      | 80          | [append "" #{CAFE}]
1.5x (2μs)         | 3      | 2      | 0      | 80          | [append "" mold #{CAFE}]

Hi, Ive discovered Red a few years ago, as the rebol next generation. I came a a few time ago and trying to get compilation option. I try to understand why sometimes the release mode has to be done because -c option fails. And the no-runtime option I really dont get it
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
I can't say what --no-runtime is used for, maybe testing the compiler. Never used it.
-c may fail for numerous reasons, depends on your code
most importantly, when libRedRT lacks some runtime exports your script might use
zentrog
@zentrog:matrix.org
[m]
—no-runtime is probably useful if you have only Red/System code and want the smallest possible executable size
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
in that case you can just declare Red/System header
zentrog
@zentrog:matrix.org
[m]
Oh, that has the same effect?
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
runtime is only included into Red scripts
zentrog
@zentrog:matrix.org
[m]
I seem to remember reading that there is a way to call Red functions from Red/System. So does that mean there is also a way to tell the compiler to include the runtime?
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
You just start with 'Red' and then go down to '#system'.

hi guys how can hide text in field?
ne1uno
@ne1uno
password?
Gregg Irwin
@greggirwin
password, e.g. view [field password]
ams0_0
@ams02468
This is a good method, but is not it a way that does not even show the number of characters?
Inside the cli, I matched the background color with the color of the words
ne1uno
@ne1uno
select too?
on-change [] could append chars and reset face/text: "**"

@greggirwin and @ne1uno thanks

Hello guys , how can find the pc resolution with red ?
dsunanda
@dsunanda
eg: system/view/screens/1/size
ams0_0
@ams02468
I tried this command before, but it did not give the correct specifications. My PC resolution is 1080, but it gave me 1536x864
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
system/view/screens/1/size * system/view/metrics/dpi / 96
ams0_0
@ams02468
thanks @hiiamboris @dsunanda
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
maybe even
system/view/screens/1/size * system/view/metrics/dpi / 96 + 3 and complement 3
but this needs testing on nonstandard resolutions / dpis
Gregg Irwin
@greggirwin
We need to make sure that's doc'd somewhere.

Hello, how can I write two correlation commands in one line, for example?
create -dir % test change -dir % test
If they are separated, space is occupied, for example cmd
md test && cd test
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
what have you tried?
ams0_0
@ams02468
I want to fit two commands in one line
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
Red does not distinguish new line from space or tab.

@ams02468
ok thx @hiiamboris

Hello, is there a way to run it without write the file?
test: #include-binary %z.exe

write/binary %z.exe test

call %z.exe
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
no

@ams02468
Is there any example for how use the dll library like 7z in red?
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
both red/red and red/community repos are full of examples

I was looking for a link to your Red/System introduction, but haven't found it, so posted random one

I'm trying to take a script that converts 4K MP4 video from my Sony RX10 iii camera to a format editable by Davinci Resolve. For testing, I have the script print the string before it calls it. If i manually copy that string direct to the command line it works perfectly. But when the script calls it, it makes a video from just one frame. How call I correct this? Here's the script:
