Harriet Bazley has announced the release of version 1.48 of Textseek, a multi-file search application that presents the results of its searches via throwback, allowing you to click on a particular result to be taken to the relevant place in the file.

The main change – which was actually made in 2015, but due to an oversight has only now been released – is to address a bug whereby the application could crash or produce a corrupted filetypes menu, neither of which is ideal, if used on a system on which filetypes have been defined without names. The program also now ignores errors caused by characters in filenames that RISC OS doesn’t normally allow when these are read over a network, and a fix provided by Martin Avison means the program can now better cope with scanning corrupt BASIC programs.

Gavin Wraith has released a new version of Weave, an application that can generate web pages from scripts, and thus remove any need to understand either HTML or CSS.

The script language used is a subset of Lua, so anyone who writes programs in that language will probably be at home writing Weave scripts – though a quick glance at the user guide suggests anyone who doesn’t probably won’t. However, for those who have the Archive Magazine CD/DVD including volume 15 – or indeed, those who still have the dead tree editions of that volume – Harriet Bazley wrote a two part article on Weave, published in issues 15:8 and 15:9.
