    New Extension: SuperFunction

    I wrote this object to replace my use of Power Function in version 1.5. Power Function unfortunately did not make it to MMF2. I hope you find it useful.

    This object provides flexible looping, local functions (all similiar to Power Function), but also adds global function calls, and expression processing with IF/THEN capability.

    I hope to include this in the next bonus pack, but given this is a way off, here is a fully functional 'early' version.

    Pick up this extension, and a new maze example which shows how to use Power Function and SQLDB to generate mazes, at my new downloads page http://www.extramind.com/downloads.htm

    Re: New Extension: SuperFunction

    Just to clarify, the MMF2 version of this extension is done. It is not beta or anything.

    Only changes would be if anyone finds future problems or bugs. I have tested it pretty thoroughly, several other developers have tested it without issue and I have used it in some complex examples such as the maze generator. Note the source to that example is also available in a separate link on the downloads page (requires mmf2).

    cool
    Does this support functions across sub applications?
    If it does I'll use this in MDC2

    Very nice extension. I'll add it to the MMF2AO Database.

    Make sure you use global function calls to cross sub application boundaries. Note, these will be asynchronous calls - meaning the function in the subapp will execute when the MMF event loops gets around to firing inside the subapp.

    Re: New Extension: SuperFunction

    Sorry to the bearer of bad news, but there is something I want to tell.
    MMF2 is NOT designed to handle Conditions and Actions calls within an expression. It is just not.
    So if your supa function works, it is pure luck. If it crashes or works badly, and this will come, I wont be able to do anything against it (I would have to rewrite the expression evaluator, something that cannot be done in a intermediate build).
    I would like you to put this warning in the doc of your object, that MMF2 has not been tested for such functions, and it might (but only might) not work.

    Re: New Extension: SuperFunction

    ...afaik, Super Function doesn't support calling events from expressions. Isn't it only Power Function which allows that...?

    Update
    Francois has looked at the code, and although I will make some changes to the way errors get handled, there are no issues with the way functions get processed and called.
    So expect a 100% compatible minor update soon, with a new icon (thanks Flavien!).
