Twitter: CarnationSW for MacWise update alerts

14.1.8

4/18/14

MacWise can open documents on your Mac under host control.

When the host sends ESC STX P script CR
( where script contains FileExists("FilePathToTheDocument")
MacWise will respond with a 1 or 0

This version of MacWise allows the FilePathToTheDocument to work if the host uses quotes or not.

In other words, FilePathToTheDocument or "FilePathToTheDocument" will both work.
FileExists("BootVolume:MyFile.pdf")
FileExists("UserDesktop:MyFile.pdf")
or
FileExists(BootVolume:MyFile.pd")
FileExists(UserDesktop:MyFile.pdf)

If the file exists you can open it with
ESC STX < "FilePathToTheDocument" CR
or
ESC STX < FilePathToTheDocument CR

Added documentation links to the manual for data transfers...
The host computer can control data transfers by using escape sequences recognized by MacWise.

VT100 / VT220 mode uses the Clear key as a PF1 function key when the host enables Alternate Keypad mode (or when the user enables Alternate Keypad for VT Emulation in Preferences.

Wyse 60 / 370 mode uses the Clear key when the user has selected Use keypad for Wyse 60 edit keys.


6/25/2012

14.0

Compatible with Mountain Lion
Mountain Lion has a new security feature called Gatekeeper. By default, it prevents you from downloading an application from a developer who does not have a Developer ID registered with Apple.
MacWise version 14 is code signed with the Carnation Software Developer ID and installs effortlessly with the Mountain Lion default GateKeeper security settings.

MacWise version 14 is backwards compatible to Tiger (Mac OS 10.4)
There are now two MacWise version 14 installers. One installer is for the older Tiger operating system. The other is for the newer Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion operating systems (OS 10.5 through 10.8).

Fix - Launching a file without a path name was not working with ESC CTRL B < URL CR
It will now use the MacWise folder as it should if no path name is specified.
Also, allows DOS file names with slashes.
Also, supports BootVolume and UserDesktop in path names.Note that you can no longer use Mac file names with a slash in the name.
Example:

PRINT CHAR(27):CHAR(2):"<":"MyFilename" (no path is supplied here so the file would need to be in the MacWise folder.
