inputbox version 2.0
This directory contains programs for version 2.0 of inputbox.
There are two major changes:
(1) a new dialog box has been added for doing multiple-choice
inputs---i.e. it provides a set of buttons A, B, C, D and
DON'T KNOW, rather than a window for typing input. The new
dialog is called by the function TMPMCQBox.
(2) the first version of inputbox for Macintosh was restricted
to 255 characters of input and output. 2.0 removes this
restriction; it now uses the full 32k memory buffers of the
Mac EditRecords. Note that all versions of inputbox place
a 1024-character limit on output from the dialog---but this
can be changed by setting MAX_OUT_CHARS at the top of the
inputbox.c (or .cpp) program.
inputbox is a discontinued project. However I'm keeping the
code here because it may be of interest to those who wish
to create dialog boxes for communication with Mathematica.
