[request] wordgrinder

Hello,
this is an interesting word processor for the console.
This is the home page:
http://wordgrinder.sourceforge.net/
The slogan is: "WordGrinder: a word processor for processing words"
which is in the same mood as "a simple lightweight linux distribution".
It's based on lua and requires the language and LuaFilesystem.
I couldn't build it myself due to errors I couldn't solve.
Carlo

Re: [request] wordgrinder

These errors are corrected in a debian package that released a patch:
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/ma … -2.diff.gz
The diff file corrects most of the problems but lets in some "debianism" in the name of libraries and include files.
I was not able correct these.
BTW, to compile this package you need lua-filesystem which could be found in one of the optional repositories.

Sorry, lua-filesystem is not in an optional repository, but in AUR:

Wow! this is very cool! I don't like how CLI text editors handle plain text files. This one is quite interesting smile

Re: [request] wordgrinder

Following PKGBUILD works (currently only on x86_64). The problem here, I believe,  is with the lua i686 package. Submit bug report.

pkgrel=1

Re: [request] wordgrinder

Uh, yet onother build system written in Lua. Try this ugly sed patching. Lua needs dynamic linking
loader for loading C extensions on runtime...

Forget my previous post. The dl dependency should be part of liblua.so. 5.1.3-3 will be out soon...

Re: [request] wordgrinder

The build system seems to be not only ugly but unusable.
I get

[haawda@bertrand wordgrinder]$ wordgrinder
Lua error: ...by_me/wordgrinder/pkg/usr/share/wordgrinder/main.lua:16: module 'lfs' not found:
    no field package.preload['lfs']
    no file './lfs.lua'
    no file '/usr/share/lua/5.1/lfs.lua'
    no file '/usr/share/lua/5.1/lfs/init.lua'
    no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.1/lfs.lua'
    no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.1/lfs/init.lua'
    no file './lfs.so'
    no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.1/lfs.so'
    no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.1/loadall.so'
stack traceback:
    [C]: in function 'require'
    ...by_me/wordgrinder/pkg/usr/share/wordgrinder/main.lua:16: in main chunk

so the build system builds binaries that search for their files in the build directory.

Re: [request] wordgrinder

That was my first guess too, but, no, it is installed.

I tried to move the line

sed -i "s|PREFIX = \"/usr\"|PREFIX = \"$startdir/pkg/usr\"|" pmfile

between the two ./pm lines, without success.

Re: [request] wordgrinder

This must be a problem with your luafilesystem installation:

Stefan Husmann wrote:

    no file '/usr/lib/lua/5.1/lfs.so'
...

If you installaed luafilesystem from AUR:

bash-3.2$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/lua/5.1/lfs.so
/usr/lib/lua/5.1/lfs.so ist in luafilesystem 1.3.0-1 enthalten

Backspace does not seem to work with this program. Is this a "feature"?

You are right. I had a release 1.4.1, installed with a PKGBUILD, and that package was broken.  Downgrading helped.

Same here. And it is imho a bug, since the Navigation menu tells us, it shoud be the case that Backspace deletes a charakter.

Re: [request] wordgrinder

What about this:

Extracted from the main page of wordgrinder:

WordGrinder is distributed as source. It's written in a combination of C and Lua. This means you have to have Lua installed if you want to use it. It also makes extensive use of Unicode, which means you'll need a Unicode-aware version of ncurses. Full instructions are included in the README, but you may (depending on whether your OS has them packaged for you) need to compile the following packages:

    * Lua 5.1
    * LuaFileSystem 1.2

Debian and Ubuntu have all the necessary requirements pre-packaged. (That's what the author wrote it on.)

i think that lua must be in the dependencies array ;-)

Re: [request] wordgrinder

No. luafilesystem depends on lua, so the lua dependency is already fulfilled.
