[ANN] The Heart of the Snake King

The Heart of the Snake King, a pompous name I gave to a fine generative
visual art piece (also a pompous way of refering to a pretty animation),

Very nice. I have wanted to make some Voronoi fields but never gotten around to it.


PS: It was surprisingly hard to find a VM to make this run.
Tried on squeak.cog.spur_win64x64_202006171651
The VM just dies without any warning or messages.

After many tries I got it to run on a 32 bit VM
squeak.cog.spur_win32x86_202006171651

Some feedback from the VM would be nice.

I (obviously) don't know how hard that would be to implement.




Best,
Karl

Ah yes, sorry, I totally forgot to mention this was a 32-bit image.

Can't open 32-bit images anymore on macOS Catalina -.- ...but works on
SqueakJS! :)

Hi Karl,
I have identified the root cause to be a change of compiler flags, so it shall be easy to fix (a 3 liner).
We need to check why those changes were added (for building Terf on Win64 with clang.exe and native MS tools/libs) and if we can safely remove them.
Eliot shall know, but he seems a bit busy ATM.

Thanks for the info.
So there were 2 issues causing my grievance ;-)
I tested the image with older 64 bit Vm as well and the VM and image never started up, it just disappeared without any warnings or other information about what went wrong.

As Stephane mentioned it needs a 32 bit VM which worked fine.

Karl

The LSystem in this image is also awesome.
The LSystemPlotter with zoom on scroll wheel adds so much for viewing :-)
I have made some versions of LSystem myself but not any this good.

Nice!

Btw, you can run that zip directly in SqueakJS. Just click this link:

https://squeak.js.org/run/#zip=https://cors-anywhere.herokuapp.com/http://www.zogotounga.net/comp/squeak/HeartOfSnakeKing.zip

(if https and CORS were enabled on zogotounga then it would even work without the proxy)

The VM loads the zip, unpacks the contents and loads the image and then
deletes the zip, image and also the changes file from memory. The image
complains about missing changes file :-(.

Interesting. What browser are you using?

I verified it works on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

Maybe it's the sources file, not the changes file? That one is missing
in the zip and may be cached in your browser, Vanessa?

Do you see that behavior too? 

It works for me even if I clear the browser cache or use an incognito window.

Nope, the link works for me, too.

Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit). I had the JS console open and saw the message
about .zip, .image and .changes being deleted after the .image was
downloaded. The image also threw up an error dialog about missing .changes.

Could this be because I was running low on RAM? Swapping was high during
this time.

Firefox was running in private mode. If I use regular mode, then the
code works.

In private mode, the image reports "Squeak cannot locate the changes
file named /SqueakJS/HeartOfSnakeKing.changes"

This is what I grabbed from the JS console:

In private mode, several session storage APIs of Firefox are forbidden to be used.

As said above, that kind of storage (IndexedDB?) cannot be used in Private mode.

> Falling back to local storage squeak.js:7874:13

So it is using local storage, with limited size.

> File /HeartOfSnakeKing.zip (27219201 bytes) too large, storing in memory only squeak.js:7925:17

OK the zip is in memory only now.

Thats the problem, SqueakJS cannot access the file by name now, if I read that correctly.

Same here, but the image is loaded and executed and does not need to be referenced by name anymore.

Yeah, the "virtual filesystem" that squeakjs emulates with the indexedDB? is now empty, so Squeak cannot find the Changes file.

Thank you, Tobias, for your detailed analysis of the log.

I wonder if it is possible to hold changes file in memory too, just like
the image. The changes file is only around 48MB. If held in memory, it
may increase its footprint to around 200MB, still small for a 64bit system.

Yes, it's supposed to fall back to simply keeping stuff in memory, especially for things too big for localStorage.

The bug, as Tobias pointed out, is that the fsck routine does not "see" the files in memory, and is clearing out the corresponding directory entries. So when the image then tries to open the files, they are not found. Will fix.

Thanks for reporting!

I don't think the problem is the size after all.
The problem is that in private mode, apis and resources are limited and as a result of that,
the loaded files do not look like they're in that file system. But Squeak needs them looking like files.

I presume the changes file is still around in memory but squeak on squeakjs is just not seeing them
