Mac OS X vs win32

Hi,

I am comparing MAC OS X and win32 version of eggPlant.
Wondering if it is possible to use both in parallel (some team members are on mac and some on win32).

First step:
Is there any way in SenseTalk to get the OS type?

Comments

  • I am also curious about the requirement for the win32 version.
    I am experiencing slow response times at writing/editing scripts. (Pentium M 1.7GHz)

    Yes, the platform() function will give you this information.
    if the platform is "MacOS" then
      -- do something Mac-specific
    else if the platform is "Windows" then
      -- do something Windows-specific
    else if the platform is "Linux" then
      -- do something Linux-specific instead
    end if
    
    Scripts and images are compatible across platforms, so it's possible for members of the same team to use eggPlant on different platforms.

    However it's usually convenient to standardize on a single platform.

    The only system requirements for eggPlant for Windows are a system capable of running Windows XP, Service Pack 3, and a GB of memory per instance of eggPlant. The faster the system, the more responsive the script editor and the GUI in general should be.
