Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.2
  • Besides the old Flashmode applications some new ones have been added. When they run they behave like the old, but their user interface is slightly changed. There are two sets of applications 'Flashmode-i', 1≤i≤7, and 'Flashmode-alt-i', i=1. Each set is controlled by a script 'FlashmodeC' resp. 'FlashmodeC-alt'. When 'FlashmodeC' is called, it first checks, if the document is already controlled by Flashmode, if not, it looks which members of its set are available for work, and of those it tells the one with the smallest number to do the job. Thus, the preferences (interval, type engine) are specified for the sets only.
  • The new applications depend on a new parameter 'Limit' resp. 'Limit-alt' in the preferences, where the user can specify the maximum number of open applications from this set. By default 'Limit' is set to '7', while 'Limit-alt' will only make sense, if more members will be added to this set.
  • The corresponding shell scripts are 'flashmode-1' resp. 'flashmode-alt-1', they are in the bin folder of the folder 'Flashmode'.
  • All Flashmode applications (old or new) are to be given the 'quit' command via the button 'quit Flashmode'.
  • To upgrade move the folder 'FlashmodeC' in '~/Library/', replace the application 'Flashmode-Scripts', and either replace the whole bin folder or just add the two shell scripts mentioned above.

Date Added December 13, 2004
Version 1.2
Category Business Software
Subcategory Word Processing Software
Operating Systems
Operating Systems Mac OS X 10.0/10.1/10.2/10.3
Additional Requirements Flashmode requires only a fairly complete tetex installation, preferably Gerben Wierda's distribution, BBEdit v.7, or better, as editor and TeXniscope v. 0.3.3, or better, by Massimiliano Gubinelli as pdf viewer. No further tex scripts are necessary, though they might be helpful, e.g., TeX-Scripts-BBEdit.

On a G5@2.5GHz it is a real joy running Flashmode, while it is a bit slow on an old G4@500MHz.
