Question: How about wdl_log display __FILE__ __LINE__? Maybe you can use #define WDL_LOG(...) wdl_log_print(__FILE__, __LINE__, __VA_ARGS__) and void wdl_log_print(const char *file, int line, const char *fmt, ...) #else #define WDL_LOG(...) do {} while(0)

    I forget, does __FILE__ in a macro give you the file of the macro, or the file of where the macro was invoked?

Question: I am so thankful that Reaper still works on Windows 7, as I have no intention of upgrading to W10. Are there any plans to change this? (Seems like too many other developers have abandoned W7 already)

Question: Is there a reason, why 3rd party Lua-modules can't be loaded in Reaper? There are plenty of helpful modules out there but trying to load them usually doesn't work in Reaper(assuming the module is generally compatible with Lua 5.3).

    Next time I work on it I'll look at that, but for the most part it was going for consistency with Winamp

Question: Why REAPER converts a video into audio when we glue the media item containing both (video & audio)? It doesn't make sense to me. I mean glue means to combine two media items into one, be it an audio or video item. Rather there should be something like "convert this video item into audio" option or something like?

Question: Why REAPER resource path is under "UsersAppDataRoaming" instead of "UsersAppDataLocal"? I head Local is for storing something permanently and Roaming is for storing it temporarily?

Reply on August 31 2021, 3:25pm:
    I think you have that backwards -- roaming is for stuff that should persist.. I suppose some things could go into local (metadata caches etc) but that'd be too complicated.

Question: A curiosity I always had and couldn't find the why on the forums: why Python modules crash when trying to import them into a reascript in python? Also why is the network of lua disabled?
Asked by DdSL (189.112.150.x) on August 30 2021, 3:56pm
Reply on August 31 2021, 1:17am:
    Python is relatively difficult to integrate into other apps, so I dunno. I wasn't aware that Lua had network support natively? Or did you mean EEL2's network API? I suppose we could port that to Lua.

Question: Hey, Justin. Are you planning to move to new LLVM-based Intel Compiler at some point? I would love to see some benchmarks on LoL for REAPER; overall performance improvements look rather good, especially for FP (at least on paper).

Question: I want to compile sws on Linux. How do I tell cmake to use WDL which I downloaded? Just copying the WDL directory to the sws directory doesn't work :/

    Maybe it needs to be in the right relative path? e.g. WDL/ next to sws-root?

    If you have to sit there and analyze other people's code to make sure it's correct, maybe I don't see the point so much? Other than to greatly reduce the amount of typing, which my occasional RSI-having side probably would appreciate.

    It's definitely the wrong direction, even if the motives are good. Once you have the ability to do something, it's hard to tell powerful governments no. :/

    LZMA compression. Also we optimize for distribution size, so there are a lot of .png files which are stored in fully-uncompressed form (.png normally uses zlib compression which makes them smaller on disk, but if you store them without it, LZMA can do a better job of compressing them across multiple files).
