Linux Stream Errors

Postby conor_f on Wed May 29, 2013 9:55 pm

$ /opt/mdyalog/13.2/32/unicode/mapl
Stream 0: Can't access /opt/mdyalog/13.2/32/unicode/aplkeys/xterm-256color
Stream 0: /opt/mdyalog/13.2/32/unicode/aplkeys/xterm-256color line : 1 can't open.

I tried a fresh install, but same error.

$ uname -a
Linux conors-laptop.home-network 3.8.5-201.fc18.i686 #1 SMP Thu Mar 28 21:59:40 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Any thoughts?

The simplest workaround for now is to install Dyalog APL, and then, with administrator privilages

Code: Select all
cd /opt/mdyalog/13.2/32/unicode/aplkeys
ln -s xterm xterm-256color
cd ../apltrans
ln -s xterm xterm-256color


Unless overridden by the APLK/APLT environment variables, Dyalog APL picks up the input and output translate tables to use from the value of the TERM environment variable; by default that is usually xterm. There's more information about this in the Unix Installation and User Guide.

I'll also log an issue to update the installation image to include these links.

Working :) thank you very much. Just in case future people have this problem, "color" instead of "colour"

Sorry about that. Fixed the spelling of "color" in my previous post.
