Vous avez besoin d'avoir installé CubicIDE et au moins la version 3.0 de Hollywood pour utiliser ce module.
Cette version 1.1 de hw4cubic fait automatiquement la distinction entre les versions 3.0 et 4.0 de Hollywood, sachant que la version 4 possède des fonctions supplémentaires!
Il a été créé avec AmiKit et OS 3.9, mais devrait fonctionner sur toutes les plates-formes qui peuvent faire fonctionner Cubic IDE.
Mais si vous rencontrez des problèmes sur votre plate-forme, envoyez un mail à l'adresse indiquée dans l'avis juridique ou poster un message dans le sujet de discussion hw4cubic sur le site viewtopic.php? f = 38 & t = 1919

Vous pouvez télécharger hw4cubic ici:

1 Généralités

1.1: syntaxes surlignées pour toutes les mots-clés et fonctions (cela dépend de votre version d'Hollywood); un surlignage spécial pour les commandes obsolètes d'Hollywood, ainsi la mise à jour du code source pour la nouvelle version d'Hollywood devrait être beaucoup plus facile maintenant.

1.2: Un onglet vous donne des informations sur la fonction Hollywood que vous venez d'écrire dans CubicIDE.

1.3: Un accès rapide à toutes les parties de la documentation d'Hollywood à partir de CubicIDE.

1.4.1: Tous les fichiers hws et hwd localisés dans le mêm répertoire (ou projet) sont listés sur le côté gauche de Cubic pour un accès plus rapide.

1.4.2: Désormais les images de types iff, jpg, png, gif, bmp sont listés dans une troisième partie. Si vous cliquez simplement sur le nom d'une image, elle sera affichée. Si vous pressez la touche Shift avant de sélectionner le nom d'un fichier, il sera insérer dans votre code source. (V 1.1)

1.5: Un accès à tous les exemples de codes sources fournis avec Hollywood seront sur le côté gauche de Cubic.

1.6: automatic indention for the following control structures and blocks:
- If-Else-ElseIf-EndIf

1.7: corressponding bracket (), [], {} is marked when cursor is over the other bracket

1.8: separate Hollywood menu while holding right mouse button over GoldED title bar or top of screen respectively

1.9: available in English and German

1.10: compile, debug and error output: Hollywood 4 users will now recognize a new container called "Output". This container show all compile, debug and error output instead of opening a new shell window. Additionally, if you click on a message line that shows an error you will be directed to the corresponding line in the source code. (V 1.1) Attention: AmiKit users should read the FAQ!

1.11: if you right click a file name like --@BRUSH 1, "test.iff"-- you can choose to open the media file (with multiview) (V 1.1)

2 Functions via toolbar

2.1: insert template text of a minimalistic Hollywood programm for quick coding start

2.2: compile source code with separate tool "HWCC" (Hollywood-Cubic-Compiler), which is a GUI for compiling for different plattforms at once

2.3: directly compile versions for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, AROS, MacOS, MacOS Intel (V 1.1 - just with Hollywood 4), MorphOS, WarpOS, Windows and the Applet version (see screenshot 2.2)

2.4: Button to directly run the coded application (left button on screenshot)

2.5: Button to view the Hollywood documentation guide (second button from the right on screenshot 2.4)

2.6: Button to view the Hollywood tutorial code (right button on screenshot 2.4)

2.7: Button for quick insert of (hard to remember) constants for objects, attributes, coordinates, colors, transitions, fonts and fill styles

3 Functions via keyboard

3.1: pressing F1 while the cursor is over a Hollywood function or keyword displays the corresponding section in the Hollywood documentation guide (context sensitive help); if cursor is not over a word, the main topic of the help guide is displayed

3.2: pressing Shift+F1 while cursor is over a Hollywood function opens the corresponding section of the in write protect mode within GoldED in a new document, so you can now easily copy examples etc. and paste it into your source code

3.3: pressing F2 compiles the source code to a choosen path and file as a programm for the platform you are working on

3.4: pressing Shift+F2 compiles the source code to a choosen path and file as an applet

3.5: pressing F4 directly runs the coded application in window mode (V 1.0), while Shift+F4 runs it in fullscreen mode. (V 1.1)

3.6: pressing F7 starts HWCC with given paths and file/application names (see screenshot 2.2)

3.7: pressing ESC after typing the beginning of a Hollywood function or keyword completes the word automatically

3.8: pressing Strg+Space after typing the beginning of a Hollywood function or keyword shows a list of all possible functions to insert at cursor position (intellisense)

3.9: pressing Shift+Space after typing in some text completes the word if it was already typed in before (standard Cubic feature)

3.10: several patterns can be typed it to insert complete text templates at cursor position for control structures and blocks
The following patterns are supported:
- If. ==> If-EndIf
- Ifel. ==> If-Else-EndIf

- Whi. ==> While-Wend
- For. ==> For-To-Next
- Forst. ==> For-To-Step-Next
- Rep. ==> Repeat-Until
- Swi. ==> Switch-Case-Default-EndSwitch
- Func. ==> Function-EndFunction
- Blo. ==> Block-EndBlock

3.11: pressing Amiga+/ shows a list of all of your defined functions in your source code; clicking at a function will jump to its definition

3.12: pressing Ctrl+f when the cursor is over the call of a user defined function will jump to its definition

4 Troubleshooting/FAQ

Q: I use AmiKit and Hollywood 4. Nearly everytime I compile my source code AmiKit freezes and I have to reboot. What's the problem?
A: It isn't completely clear yet what causes the problem, but a workaround is to disable the tooltype "TOOLPRI" of the application "LimpidClock" (right click on "Limpid Clock" icon, choose "Information", scroll down and double click the entry "TOOLPRI", and save the settings)

Q: I already have an older version of hw4cubic installed. How can I update?
A: Just download the latest archive, unpack it and run the install script (choose "Install ...").

This add on is freeware and was created by Michael "Clyde Radcliffe" Jurisch with the help of the following people:

Fabio Falcucci
and the Hollywood mailinglist ...

Greetings go to the folks at

The separate tool HWCC was programmed in Hollywood (of course :-)) and with Fabio Falcuccis ScuiLib. It was compiled natively for AOS3, AOS4 and MorphOS and the correct version will be installed depending on your platform.
