^ FOX multithreading
64721 [harryo qiqso] I'm about to embark on multithreading a FOX-based GUI (to add to the contents of an FXTreeList in the background) and I remember there being issues with multithreading in Tk ... ie, the threads didn't get a look-in unless you used a Tk method to schedule them for idle processing.

64738 [harryo qiqso] Does anyone know how to stop the message "Ready" from overwriting the status line when the GUI is idle?

^ module This::Encompassing::That
64753 [W.L.Kleb lar] Today, I decided I was tired of
64754 [dblack candl] module X
64757 [W.L.Kleb lar] Excellent point.
64850 [gsinclair so] However, since the idea of the "module" keyword is to introduce a new
+ 64852 [decoux moulo] it's in the ToDo
+ 64854 [nobu.nokada ] You can use module_eval.
+ 64859 [dblack candl] I assumed he meant a kind of autovivification, so that the first
  64883 [gsinclair so] I don't see a problem with autovivification, though.  If the first
  64986 [matz ruby-la] What if A or B were classes?
  + 64987 [decoux moulo] I don't understand this is valid and same than `module A::B::C'
  | + 64988 [matz ruby-la] No.  Classes and modules are not always interchangeable.
  | | 64990 [decoux moulo] I really don't see where is the problem, sorry,  with
  | | 65046 [matz ruby-la] I think too "smart" behavior delays class/module inconsistency
  | | 65078 [decoux moulo] Yes, my problem is with
  | | 65085 [matz ruby-la] Yes, you're right as always.  It should be treated as if
  | | 65137 [gsinclair so] Isn't
  | | 65151 [matz ruby-la] Yes.  But it can be something like
  | | + 65154 [gsinclair so] Best to be explicit, IMO.  This is syntax sugar, not the solution to
  | | + 65160 [nobu.nokada ] Like this?
  | |   + 65161 [nobu.nokada ] Oops, missed.
  | |   + 65178 [matz ruby-la] I think class_prefix should be a sequence of modules, so that type
  | |     65211 [nathaniel NO] Do you mean that
  | |     65225 [matz ruby-la] No, the former would not be an error, since
  | |     65230 [dblack candl] But why is module C::D equivalent to module/module, more than to
  | |     65235 [matz ruby-la] I can remain "don't care" for referencing, but not for creation.
  | |     + 65237 [dblack candl] That's the autovivification we were talking about earlier in the
  | |     | + 65243 [matz ruby-la] Probably I missed some of the discussion.  I will check the archive.
  | |     | | + 65244 [dblack candl] Well, I snuck it in :-)  It's pretty much the same principle.
  | |     | | + 65284 [gsinclair so] I made some self-contradictory points during the discussion.  I now
  | |     | + 65291 [William.L.Kl] No it's not urgently needed.  On the surface, I thought that autovivication
  | |     + 65259 [matt lickey.] I would be very happy with this restriction (stuff to left of :: must
  | |       65262 [B.Candler po] Would it not be clearer to eliminate the duplication of all those prefixes
  | |       + 65282 [matt lickey.] Yep, that works too.  Though if Ruby supports "class Foo::Bar" I would

  | |         65326 [B.Candler po] Not sure what 'this modification' is, because the above works under 1.6.8
  | |         65330 [nobu.nokada ] Autoload affects only top level constants, even in module
  | |         65339 [B.Candler po] a = Utils::ClassA.new
  | |         + 65340 [decoux moulo] Try this, to see the difference
  | |         + 65342 [B.Candler po] module Foo
  | + 64991 [dblack candl] Yes, but the question is about autovivification -- that is, if this
  |   + 64993 [decoux moulo] I'm agree with you : it's magical, but if you write `module A::B::C' this
  |   + 64998 [matt lickey.] Ruby can raise a runtime error if A and B are unknown.
  + 65063 [gsinclair so] If it makes sense for classes, then well and good.  If not, then
    65089 [dblack candl] In this case, it's not autoviv., because A already exists, so it's an
    65136 [gsinclair so] Well, you could do that if you like.

^ List of 1.6 vs 1.8 somewhere?
64763 [wdueber indi] I apologize -- I'm sure this must be a FAQ, but I can't seem to locate a
+ 64767 [egabriel io.] Such a list would be premature, as 1.8 has not been released.
+ 64851 [gsinclair so] The 'shim' module will give you a good idea, but is not exhaustive.

  + 64996 [decoux moulo] You want to say english documentation, no ?
