Squeak File Glitch

ReliableRobots.com
I ran this program and nothing happened so I added self halts and learned it can't even read the input file!  Yet the File List tool reads it.  Such dichotomy in behavior might be covered by a preference?  I know MS Notepad, the simplest editor now allows one to store a file in ones's choice of formats.  Does Squeak have a simple choice for input treatments that works in Win10?

do
"Read a Bible file, reformat for beter readability and html standards."
| inPath ootPath inFIle outFile line words |
inPath := 'C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Website\Jesus Words\Matthew.html'.
ootPath := 'C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Website\Jesus Words\Matthew2.html'.
inFIle := FileStream oldFileNamed: inPath.
outFile := FileStream newFileNamed: ootPath.
self halt.
[(line := inFIle nextLine) notNil
whileTrue:[
words := line substrings.
self halt.
words size >0 ifTrue:[
outFile nextPutAll: line, '<br>'; cr; lf].
]].
inFIle close.
outFile close.


It is my observation that Squeak is the last gasp uttered by a mouse when it fears death.  It is not a normal sound they make unless they are being eaten by a Python!   I hope the Python people don't release code that simply doesn't work.

Hi -


You've misplaced the ending ]  of the block that you send #whileTrue: to.


Try:


[(line := inFIle nextLine) notNil]
whileTrue:[
words := line substrings.
self halt.
words size >0 ifTrue:[
outFile nextPutAll: line, '<br>'; cr; lf].
].
inFIle close.
outFile close.

Also you probably want to wrap those file close  method sends in an #ensure: block so it all looks like this:

 [
   [(line := inFIle nextLine) notNil]
    whileTrue:[
    words := line substrings.
    self halt.
    words size >0
        ifTrue:[outFile nextPutAll: line, '<br>'; cr; lf].
    ]  ensure:
 [
    inFIle close.
    outFile close.]

So that when there is an error (or a halt) in the file processing code the files are closed properly.  (And of course assuming nobody pulls the power cord).

 

Also here is the terse guide to Squeak

http://squeak.org/documentation/terse_guide/

On that page the Iteration section shows how to use the #whileTrue: idiom and in the File section has an example like you attempted to make.



And there are some free Smalltalk books available here:


http://stephane.ducasse.free.fr/FreeBooks.html


Often when I'm writing code  (often bugs :/ ) it helps me to find the senders and implementors of methods and read how the methods I'm trying to use are used canonically.


Are you trying to interact with Python from your image?  I think you'd have to use FFI if so.  I'm not sure.  Hopefully someone else can chime in.  


Hope this helps


Paul

No, he always blames Smalltalk for his mistakes (like Donnie DDD Trump, just blame someone else).

Thanks for the ] catch, but that did not solve the problem.  The halt still shows no contents in the file.  The reason I know it's not a file name problem is I copied it from the File List Tool - Change Title display.  

do
"Read a Bible file, reformat for beter readability and html standards."
| inPath ootPath inFIle outFile line words |
inPath := 'C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Website\Jesus Words\Matthew.html'.
ootPath := 'C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Website\Jesus Words\Matthew2.html'.
inFIle := FileStream oldFileNamed: inPath.
outFile := FileStream newFileNamed: ootPath.
self halt.
[(line := inFIle nextLine) notNil]
whileTrue:[
words := line substrings.
words size >0 ifTrue:[
outFile nextPutAll: line, '<br>'; cr; lf].
].
inFIle close.
outFile close.


Could it be you have a malware writer among the system release developers?  I'd suspect John Pfersich.  Even if it's not him, the likelihood of such a person in an open developer community is so high I'm looking at JAVA for reliability.

this entire article might be helpful but especially:  http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#beprecise


Which file has no contents?


Your halt is placed before the out file stream should have any content because the file processing loop has not been entered.  When you send #newFileNamed: a new empty file is created.  


When you check for file contents for the "in" file to know it has no content how do you do that?  


When you follow senders and implementors of the methods you're using how are they used?

Using the halt walkback, window, I look at the variable inFile using inspect then look at contents which all show up as a few lines of empty squares, whatever that character is.  Using the File List Tool the file his an HTML file filled with ordinary ASCII words and html tags.

Again the OS is Win10, the Squeak is 5.1

I would add:

'Thou shalt not take the name of the Squeak thy Smalltalk in vain'.

It is my observation that Squeak is the last gasp uttered by a mouse when it fears death.  It is not a normal sound they make unless they are being eaten by a Python!   I hope the Python people don't release code that simply doesn't work.

I too am often frustrated by code that will just not work. When I wish to blame the libraries I use, I end up asking myself "how likely is it that the bug is in my code, written by a single frail, weak human, versus a big in code used every day, in anger, by thousands of people?" I am hardly humble, but this thought does help me at least try to practice humility. It is almost always the case that the error end up being mine.

If this code is used by thousands of people, it also fails for thousands of people.  I have had two Smalltalk jobs plus ran a Smalltalk SIG so I'm not in need of humility on Smalltalk unless and until you can show me my mistake.  I even tried copying the file access code used by the file list tool and that did not work either.  So I suspect it is a bad version of the VM.  

I will try to locate an older version to confirm.  It is amazing how many commentators fail to even try out the code to confirm or refute my discovery BEFORE providing commentary.  Is that true humility?

I tried it, the file reading and writing works fine here (trunk
image). When the execution hits your #halt, the FileStream buffers are
not yet filled with any data. That is why you see only placeholder box
characters at this stage. During the first #nextLine, the buffers are
filled, so after that you should be able to see your data in the
stream variables.

Re: Squeak File Glitch

To Hal Eden and others who got it right:

Thank you.  I got inspired with that idea after my email yesterday and it works.  That means the original problem was all my fault, the misplaced bracket ] and looking in the wrong direction was also my fault.  Thanks for your patience in walking me through the problem.

I find in my old age some of my insights are improving but my eyesight and typing are diminishing.  Here is a reward for your effort.  www.theManChild.org  I believe it is the state of the art in Christianity for the next few years.

If interested, I'm hoping to write a Bible parser that can parse it like I do, which I think is the first step to real Artificial Intelligence.  After all starting with the most intelligent book should go further than starting with an encyclopedia.

Well, I'm glad you worked through your problem.

I would however suggest that you'd find less friction if you were to just ask your question, instead of insulting the people you're asking for help.
