Hello Martin, Thanks for reporting the issues with Vista. I know nothing about Windows, but I can answer the second part of your mail: On Sun, Aug 31, 2008 at 05:42:50PM +0200, Martin Larsen wrote: > In start.txt I have a function myfun with variable declared like this: > local(myvar); > > This variable should not have any relevance outside myfun, agree? Not really. local() variables are dynamically scoped, so are visible in any functions called from myfun: The following print "7": myf2() = print(myvar) myfun(n) = local(myvar); myvar=7;n*myvar;myf2() myfun(5) Statically scoped variables are available in GP 2.4 only, using my() instead of local(): The following print "myvar": myf2() = print(myvar) myfun(n) = my(myvar); myvar=7;n*myvar;myf2() myfun(5) > But this variable is not removed from global function (sic) namespace. > > Here is what happens: > > >myvar(n)= n*n > *** unused characters: myvar(n)=n*n This was a limitation of GP 2.3 which was fixed in GP 2.4. In GP 2.4, you can replace function with variable and vice-versa. Cheers, Bill.
