web('file', 'filename' '-browser') not working

Hello,

I'm working on a project involving Matlab and a nice flashy GUI. To
call help files, I do:

web('file', 'help.html' '-browser');

On my computer, this works. After compiling it, it works. If I
manage to get the current directory wrong, somehow, the browser
attempts to go to www.help.com, rather than put up an error. So far
so good, except when the file isn't there, which I'm ignoring for the
moment.

However, when I run the program on other computers (I compile the
program first), it always goes to www.help.com, no matter what the
pwd says, or where I put help.html. This seems to happen on about
half of the other computers I try it on.

Any ideas? I had thought it was just path mixups but putting 'pwd'
in the appropriate places seems to indicate nothing is amiss. I do
not want to use explicit path names, (ie 'file:///c:/stuff/help.html'
syntax) as this program is meant for some distribution and I can't
guarantee that people will always have it running from the same
location.

Thank you in advance,
--Anne

I finally did

a = sprintf('file:///%shelp.html#%s', pwd, section);
web('file', a, '-browser');

I discovered that the file:/// syntax does not require paths to be
deliminated by '/' but can use '\' unlike what I had thought.

I read a bug report that using the internal web browser crashes when
using compiled code. However, a similar crash happens for me when
using R2006a.

I've gotten the external browser to work, so it isn't as important
now.

Thank you,

replacement for '{' and '}' ?
I am still playing around with what kind of syntax I would like to mark up my documents. Are there equivalent long substitutes for { and } when they are not used to describe arguments to functions? Something like \begin{group} and \end{group}. In other words, if I could force myself to write, say, \begin{group} \it ... \end{group} instead of {\it ... }, then I believe I could identify from the markup context what is an argument that belongs to a just invoked macro and what is text. {Of course, in this context, \textit{...} would be better.} No more ambiguity whether a in \myfunction{a} i...

replacing '/' with '\\'
I have a MKS ksh shell script running on a Windows box. In some scripts I have to convert a UNIX filename into a DOS filename, that is replace the '/' with '\\'. For example, replace /opt/siips/archive/text.dat with \\opt\\siips\\archive\\text.dat. I've tried using sed like $FILE='echo $FILE|sed "s/\//\\\/g"' which got me \opt\siips\archive\text.dat. It's close but I still need the second \. Does anyone have any suggestion? Or tell me where I've gone wrong? Thanks -- Steffen On 9 Dec 2004 20:14:21 -0800, sajohn52@yahoo.com <sajohn52@yahoo....

'[OFF]' as in 'offensive'???
Hi, given that 'off-topicness' is indicated as '[OT]' and taking a look at those postings that started the threads indicated as '[OFF]' (which may both be seen as being somewhat offensive) may lead to the conclusion that '[OFF]' stands for offensiveness. I don't think that this is the intended meaning so what actually *does* '[OFF]' mean? I never came across that abbreviation before (although I have been around on the USENET for quite some time) but maybe it is worth knowing? Josef 'Jupp' Schugt NOTE: mails >100 KiB ...

It depends on the context. : is used for module qualification of predicates.

There are uses of {} as a functor in datastructures also. Cheers Bart Demoen Hello everyone,...

'!' vs. '.'
Is there an advantage to using the '!' notation to represent form/ control relationships? (eg. Me!text1 vs Me.text1) I am currently using the '.' notation exclusively (for code completion in the VB Editor), but much of the high-quality code that I've seen (in Duane Hookom's Query-by-Form db, for example) uses the other.

Message posted via AccessMonster.com http://www.accessmonster.com/Uwe/Forums.aspx/databases-ms-access/200704/1 Here's my $0.02 worth on this. I tend to copy the notation style and naming conventions that I see being used in the Help files. That would be Me![text1] for a control on a form. I am of the belief that this notation explicitly refers to a control itself rather than a field in the form's recordset.

No, they are not the same thing. == and != test to see if the *value* of two variables are the same. Like so: >>> a = 'hello world' >>> b = 'hello world' >>> a == b True a and b both have the value of 'hello world', so they are equal is and is not, however, do not test for value equivalence, they test for object identity. In other words, they test to see if the object the two variables reference are the same object in memory, like so: >>> a is b False a and b are assigned to two different objects that happen to have the same value, but nevertheless there are two separate 'hello world' objects in memory, and therefore you cannot say that a *is* b Now look at this: >>> c = d = 'hello world' >>> c == d True >>> c is d True In this case, they are again the same value, but now the is test also shows that they are the same *object* as well, because...
