Related to that - I hit a stumbling block right away on linux when Magma
tried to prepend a \ to my repository filename. The problem's somewhere
in MaFilename, which seems pretty Windows-centric; I cludged it to work
for now by changing MaFileame>>base to be
^ string upTo: $.
A couple of other first impressions:
- A #commit without a #begin raises a meaningless error (I think it's
MNU #result). I'm pretty sure I complained about this way back in the
first Magma release; yes, it's incorrect to try, but I'd like to be told
what I'm doing wrong.
- I didn't get the results I was expecting with #abort. I tried
session commit: [session root at: 'a' put: 'b'].
session root at: 'a'. "b"
session root at: 'a' put: 'x'.
session root at: 'a'. "x"
session root at: 'a'. "x, expected b".
Am I missing something?
I did, however, sucessfully connect and commit to a database both in
single user mode and remotely, and from multiple concurrent clients.
