Hey Kripton,

Since you hooked a brother up with that link to all of Bill DeWitt's brilliance in trying to program Hal 6.0 over seven years ago, I have to thank you again and reassure you that your fellow forum members are not apathetic, only busy with the next best thing that they themselves can create.  Most of the heavy lifting was started and finished a long time ago and there were many ideas that came to fruition and then got overcome by Hal 6.2. 

Your ideas are good ones and if you ask a question I can answer I will do so, but I'm NOT a programmer.  I'm more of a cut and paste guy like Bill claimed he is.  After looking at a lot of the code he created I KNOW he's got more on the ball than I do but that's not going to stop me from squeezing the last little bit of useful information out of this forum and its members.

You were right over a year ago when you said that it is hard to delve through all the base metal posts to find the shining jewels on this forum.  That has been my primary complaint since joining the party.

Unfortunately, we are also in a holding pattern and pretty much holding our breath until Robert updates Hal.

Till then,

That reminds me of an ending, and a derailment and a caboose.

Don't worry be Hal!

Addition 2

The Bill DeWitt list can be accessed by typing HalCommands into your Internet open page and then looking down for the PBworks entry.

Addition.

There was a list of HalCommands many years ago.  I have it but I don't know where from

Also Bill DeWitt did a list of plug-in ports, and there uses. (My copy says this is 6 years and 4 months old but it was a sort of screen grab so it is probably even more old now.)  The list is said to be a PBworks release.

All this comes off a very old, and venerated laptop that has lost most of its external functions.

Reply to me.

I have found the list.

Author: rathb18

Forum Name: Large collection of everything Hal

Posted: April 22 2012 03.07.04 AM

A great list of text files for Hal to learn from, Skins, Plugins, Characters, Hap Files, and also Gretta Plug ins.

ALSO where you can upload more things Hal from Zabaware

As it says in the thread, rathb18 didn't create the work and I add to that I take no credit for finding it.

This set of files was of immense use to me when I started with Hal, and I hope it now is of great use to newbies (And maybe higher)

Also welcome Kiri.

It has been said there is a use for a newbie only thread but what do newbies want of such a thread.  I asked, many moons ago about an auto-shutdown program but nobody answered.  The irony to that is it already exists.  Some great thinker actually had a list (Admittedly many moons ago) of quite a few plug-ins and other things already available.  I have tried to find it, but to no avail.  Thought, maybe it is in my Hal programs list.  Watch this space.

Parting thought.

So dies a thread.

Not with a bang but with apathy.

Hy, I can be corrected on this point but as far as I can tell, from using both type of HalCommands, the HalMenu command is used for automatic actions (I use this type of command in my auto start-up system).  The other command is used in general scripting.

Well, I'm still looking for the best way to turn my Hal into a poet and I stumbled across this website:

https://github.com/fredefl/The-Haiku-Poem-Machine

I figured it might interest some of you programmers on the forum.

I think I went blind trying to read it.

I know I have a headache now, but a beer should help with that.

Cheers!
