Fact: None of this happened until I downloaded that file from Dommy2Hotty.

Ok .. how about some facts .. the file that you downloaded from Dommy2Hotty was written by Hendie and posted for download at ResourceCAD

As is posted on the page at the link above:
Quote from: ResourceCAD
ALWAYS DOWNLOAD RCI PROGRAM FILES DIRECTLY FROM THIS SITE ONLY

The posted file should be removed from TheSwamp

Agreed.........this one's "tainted".  So, do you want to just delete it or delete it and replace it with the one from RCI?  Either way, it's gonna confuse the hell outa someone who reads this a month from now.

I think the original post should link to the source of the file as opposed to the file itself being archived at theswamp .. in the event this code is ever revised, the end user would be getting code that is not up to date if they downloaded from here.

Woah there cowboys...I'm sorry I posted the file that I downloaded from ResourceCAD instead of just linking to their website.  I, however, have no knowledge of how to modify a VLX file, and since I know I got it from their site...

Anywho...I'll remove the file...

There isn't a problem (so far as I can tell) except I think it would be poor judgement to upload copyrighted files, even if they are free to the general public, particularly when the web site specifically states to download only from their site.

No harm - no foul

Although it's part of their virus disclaimer and not a prohibition of posting elsewhere as I read it.  More like 'If you get it somewhere else and bad things happen to you, tough cookies.'  That's how it reads to me at any rate.

My first coffee isn't brewed yet, so ..

.. can someone tell me what that site has to do with this thread, particularly with Pauls fish message. ?

I'm not sure Kerry, but the way I'm understandin' it -- dude distributed code from another site. Said code is self aware, if it ain't run from thet thar machine that dun downloded it it talks funny at ya.

So Paul's code as posted is not 10~12 years old. ?

I'm really confused .. on several counts.

Perhaps I shouldn't have slept in.

Basically, he got a vlx file that I posted that I got from ResourceCad.  After he used it, apparently his code in a lisp file got changed to display a message at the command prompt.  I, for one, don't see this to be true, but that's neither here nor there.  The long and short of it, if you want to share a file/code from another website, provide a link to that site instead of the code/file you originally downloaded, or else  :pissed:

I'm still confused. :loco:

His downloaded code was changed, or some of his own code ??

Some of his own code that he wrote circa 10 years ago.  I would like to know if there's anyone else at his office that might know programming and is playing a joke...<~~more likely, in my eyes

He says not.

I can understand if the downloaded code refused to work, but modifying existing files is, in the least, a questionable practice.
