Import issues

The transfer/import of wiki data from phpwiki to mediawiki seems to have seriously screwed up the code examples. I am currently working on fixing the layout and these are some of them gems that I have come across:

  • * being turned into ''' (C comments? Pointers? Multiplication? Who needs them!)
  • _ being turned into ''
  • array[i] being turned into array[[i]] (one dimension got lonely so a pretend one was added)
  • == being turned into <code></code>
  • | being duplicated occasionally.

I highly recommend that people (preferrably the original authors) have a look at the code, check that it still works, and make any amendments as necessary.

Non-working C version

I'm unsure of convention here, so I'll try top-posting, as it were. Might it make sense to simply remove the initial non-working C implementation? It's been ostensibly nonfunctional for ages.


Well, clicking on the plus at beside the edit, allows to you start a new section on the discussion page. This gets placed at the bottom, so I guess that's the convention. Chronological order, and all that.
As to the code, if you reckon that this code really doesn't work (and hasn't for a long time), I'd say go ahead and get rid of it. This move is giving us ample opportunity to purge things that have accumulated over time. --TheParanoidOne 04:29, 29 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Missing examples

It appears that the following examples no longer exist:

  • Java
  • Delphi
  • Delphi.NET
  • BcB
  • C#
  • Visual FoxPro 6

Was their removal intentional, or did they just slip through the cracks during page cleanup? --TheParanoidOne 06:35, 7 Aug 2005 (EDT)

The latter. --GargoyleMT 08:07, 7 Aug 2005 (EDT)

C, example one

Comment moved from article

(This doesnt work for me and I have tried changing it around many different ways. I dont believe this calculates the key the right way at all.)

-- Update: The problem is that the second byte is calculated with reference to the first one, before the first one is set to what it should be. Thus you are using uninitialized memory. The fix is simple, assign key[0] before you do anything else. --- Dj Offset


Both of PHP examples not working. I generate a $key from $lock of verlihub (it's EXTENDEDPROTOCOL_verlihub) and I received Operation timeout (Key)
