|User-agent:||Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20130509 Thunderbird/17.0.6|
Installed TeXmacs-188.8.131.52 MS Windows QT version of TeXmacs
downloaded from link of TeXmacs website.|
Using Windows 7 Pro OS.
This version crashes a few seconds after startup.
Uninstalled version 184.108.40.206 and reinstalled version 220.127.116.11 and this version works normally,
except there is an issue with file permissions for all help files. These will not load from Help
menu as a result.
Also the website states that:
It is not the case that the
located in the file tmrepl.m. This is true regardless of the operation system and Octave version.
It is a bug in the plugin in this plugin file. I have a workaround for this until the point in time
where someone submits an improved fix. Replace the code in the tmrepl.m Octave plugin file
while ( 1 )
As an alternative, users may install the Oct2Py module (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/oct2py) which is a Python interface
to Octave. This module is imported from a TeXmacs Python plugin session and works well even for plotting. Inline plot
insertion into the Python session is possible by using the the ps_out() method of the Python plugin. This method works
for plots saved as EPS files.
Until such time as the Octave plugin is fixed permanently, it seems not to be a good idea to leave the impression that this
plugin is working "out of the box" as advertised, because it is not.
Also, to avoid new users having a bad experience with TeXmacs, it should be the practice of the developers not to use a link
to an installer file that has this kind of erratic behavior.
