RE: New murgaLua 0.5.5 release !!

Looking forward to it....downloading at a blazing 4.3 KB/sec I should have it in no time....

...almost there...

...only 14 minutes to go....

It seems that LuaFileSystem will definitely be worth having to make a few script changes here and there.

fl_ask will be dropped from FLTK anyway, so that's no biggie. Use fl_choice instead, which is more flexible.

First test, replacing murgaLua.readDirectory() with lfs.dir()...

my_files=murgaLua.readDirectory(directory)
or
my_files={}
for i in lfs.dir(directory) do table.insert(my_files,i) end

It may seem more complicated, but lfs.dir gives you control over what goes in the table, or it can be used without building the table at all. I don't know which is more efficient, though: iterating through a table or repeating a function each time you need to check the contents of a directory. The function would definitely be more flexible, since it will update whenever a change is made to the directory.

Now I need to go find out how to replace murgaLua.isFile() and murgaLua.isDirectory()....be back later...
