Question: was the REAPER notation made in lua or is it a c++ extension?

    C++, though there was some initial prototyping in Lua it isn't used anymore

Question: Mmm, very nice touch to keep wdltypes.h compatible with ANSI C. Always handy for our C projects. It looks to me that support for later C standards from M$ did more harm than good as many projects upgraded mindlessly without putting any consideration for their users [?]

    I dunno, probably some things are good to be secret, but there are probably too many secrets overall.

Question: hello! i cant say everything i want to because of the limit, but your previous work with winamp is really inspiring to me as someone whos always had to sit through ads to listen to music before i found an old version (2.95) i could download. I hate the new one tbh, not a fan of nfts either. ive been learning code since i was 13 maybe, 16 now, and i really want to develop something useful or fun that doesnt need a monthly subscription for the bare minimum some day. You inspire me that way, youre really cool!

    That uses one? Not sure! You want some examples?
Question: Do you like beans? Any favorite type of beans?
Asked by heya (191.54.63.x) on March 4 2023, 7:46pm

    I do like beans! Favorite? That would be hard to say. In a burrito I'd go pinto. But lentils are awesome too. And black-eyed peas. And don't get me started on string beans.

    Now I find myself wanting a bean arch.
Question: Have you ever given up on programming something because you just couldn't figure it out? If so, what's something off hand?
Asked by Will (23.125.224.x) on March 4 2023, 12:30am
Reply on March 5 2023, 7:48pm:
    Giving up usually is due to a too-high effort/reward ratio. I don't think I've had a programming situation where I was desperate for something but could not make it work, but I've had plenty of times where I couldn't make something work and I was like "meh not worth it."
Question: Any recent Reaper user scripts that make you go the most "whaaaat, this is amazing!"

    Sure yeah but I don't spend a lot of time there so I don't pay too close of attention
Question: What is the hardest way to learn how to code?

Reply on March 3 2023, 5:41am:
    Looking at the raw bits (not bytes even) of an executable and figuring out what it does without running it and without any reference and without any tools

Question: It looks like linking with wsock32 and just including jnetlib in the build for an executable is possible to trigger false positive for a virus even if the code is never called. False positives have been a huge problem... currently thinking for a late release model if that is going to help the situation a little bit. Any other thoughts? Thanks

Reply on February 25 2023, 4:20am:
    Dunno, false positives are always possible. Best to report them early and often and hope that the developers of the antivirus software fix their heuristic...
Question: hey jf- does the "golden ratio" mean anything more than just a numerical value to you? (it appears to connect across a wide range of topics,including people dimensions for eg)

Question: Long time fan, first time caller. Do you happen to remember SongMeanings? We announced our beta on the Winamp forums in March 2001 or so. Wondering if we were ever on Nullsoft's radar. We had a minibrowser plugin! Such fond memories of the Winamp days. Hope all is well.

    reajs is pretty out of date, probably that's the cause. they could probably be modified slightly to work, though.
