Windows 7

backticks and system() no longer work

I'm using perl v5.12.4 on a Win7 system

Backticks have stopped working. EG:

$cmd=`dir`; now returns a null string.

$cmd=`file.htm`; used to start the default browser on the named file. It no longer does anything.

System("dir"); similarly no longer works.

The commands work fine if entered on the command line or a batch file without perl.

Can anyone suggest a possible reason for this?

Is there some particular file responsible for handling backticks and system() which I might try to replace?

HTML inside PHP echo

I make websites for a living and in my code PHP always exceeds HTML. This means I never code like in Wordpress, because this kind of code looks like a mess.

Instead I write my HTML inside of PHP echo. This looks more clear and you don't have to write <?php echo ?> all the time.

Can't remote debug Python app packaged with py2exe

I cannot debug my Python app packaged with py2exe. I was able to successfully perform the command line remote debug checks, so I think the environment is there. See the log file issued at launch time.

Ensure preferences are saved

I'm tired of rearranging pane tabs to my liking and shortening the "Primary Languages" to my dozen favourites, just to find everything's reset on Komodo start-up. Again and again and again... Is there a precise procedure I can follow or a Komodo command I can launch manually in order to ensure that preferences get saved, flushed and stone carved to disk?

Hotkey for "Jump To Next Result" missing in v7 and v8

I first tested KomodoEdit v4 and missed this vital function there (see topic as of 2008-10-12):
"It should be possible to jump to next and previous finding (after "Find in Files") or next error or warning (after calling external tools like compilers) with hot keys (e.g. like F4 in MS Visual Studio 6 or F12 in NetBeans). But I only see the buttons for this function ("Jump To Next Result", "Jump To Previous Result") and found no option to assign this to hot keys."

KomodoEdit v6 then supported the function via Ctrl+Shift+F3, but in v7 and v8 it's missing again :(.

How to make portable the Wrap/InputPrefix line of tpj files

I would like to have portable tpj files. Portable means between different computers with different installation paths for the TDK. The tclapp -gui always inserts absolut path names for the prefix. Google shows me something like
Wrap/InputPrefix {@installdir@/bin/base-expect-@arch@@exeext@}
However, this does not work for me. From the log I would say that tclapp does not resolve the placeholders. Is there any way to use placeholders in tpj files?

Komodo Edit 8.5.3 will not open files from Edit with Komodo prompt, and does not remember files any more

Has been happening sporadically for a while for me. Launching as administrator sometimes fixes the problem of it not remembering the files.

The trace below is from launching a file through the windows explorer shell integration "Edit with Komodo Edit" function. I have also tried to run the command from the command prompt:

C:\Users\me>"C:\Program Files (x86)\ActiveState Komodo Edit 8\komodo.exe" "c:\test.txt" %*

Trace below.

Win7 won't pass command line arguments to @ARGV

I installed AS perl on my new Win7 machine, but it won't pass command line arguments to @ARGV.

I suspect it's a registry problem in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but my changes haven't fixed it.

Does anyone know the line to change, and what to put there?

What are projects and panes

I understand that a project is used to hold more than one file and that a pane will display a file from a project. My problem though is understanding exactly what I can use a project for?. Is a project another way of saying "Website" that hold many pages inside them. Or does it mean that it holds files from multiple sites. I am sorry but I am at a total loss in understanding the purposes and the effective use of these features. I am familier with Dreamweaver. Also, can you publish a whole project if it is a whole website?
