Re: [Sc-devel] Modifying Main:run to run run.rtf in analogy to startup.rtf

Julian and I have been working on making CmdPeriod more flexible, as well as adding CmdPeriod/StartUp like objects for other events (shutdown, server boot/quit). (This was discussed in the Hague.) In the current draft (which we can forward to the list once a couple of things are sorted) the default stop stuff (clocks and servers-free) are moved into CmdPeriod, and can be disabled so that you can have your own behaviour.

Something similar could be done with StartUp, so you could disable or replace the platform specific stuff.

agreed, I also have a problem with OSXPlatform-startup making two little server windows that I don't use.
So I always have to comment those out.

I propose a delegate object.

so all of the things that Main does would be done by 

a Personalisation

or something with a more clever name.

we could then subclass that and over ride any methods we want to.

Main-initClass would search to see if a class was defined.
maybe just find the first subclass of Personalisation if one exists.
else create the delegate as a Personalisation.

Main-run {

Main-stop {

Felix-stop {
  //.. do something special

Since we already have startup.rtf why not also make Main:run execute run.rtf.
Having to overload the run method in ones own library code is more invasive.
