Oberon - X interface: interesting ?
I was thinking how to edit my previous query to
address the linux-X specialists, when I realised that I've
omitted to mention that the crash occurs only when
LEO is 'on-line' and being 'fed with input which N-O
was designed to store in a display-frame'.
AFAIK native oberon, collects bytes, eg. the mail-directory
listing, in a variable, and then transfers it to the VDU-associated
memory. Importantly, the byte-stream is not stored in a file.
Now, N-O is able to quickly empty the 'variable of storage'
into the VDU-associated memory, but LEO perhaps has to
cooperate with linux's X-mechanism.
All observed crashes occur when an inet derived byte-stream
is not able to be displayed [stored in the 'display memory']
due to the display being used by a different desktop/task.
Interestingly, I guess LEO would either need to 'hold back
accepting inet-packets', or there'd need to be a extra
temporary storage location/s.
Is this related to the non/threaded modes/s ?
