LibreOffice is a bug
« Reply #105 on: November 06, 2022, 09:18:01 PM »
My daughter just lost one day's work because LibreOffice decided to enter in an endless loop, launching itself over and over again. She had to reboot the machine to exit this loop (no way with Task Manager). She had saved a few minutes ago, but it turns out the recovery version was of yesterday evening. What a mess.

With RichMasm, you can't lose more than 2 minutes of work but, hey, LibreOffice is written by OpenSource gurus, so why should anyone complain...?

I had a play with it at one stage but it was very ordinary at editing PDF files so I converted it to free disk space.

Once I timed the sorting of a table in Excel vs Calc. Excel was consistently a factor 10+ faster.

Been real busy with my transition from accademia and ad-hoc commercial consulting to full-time corporate. Comment on expierence: interesting...., is understatement. Still following this thread and the forum in general (very cool & diverse things happening in the forum - congrats guys ! :mrgreen: = I am seriously & happily surprised)  I am not posting much these days due to initial situation expierenced as above. Please forgive, you are in my thoughts.
Excuse typos, on cellphone (again)
Are you pondering what I'm pondering? It's time to take over the world ! - let's use ASSEMBLY...

Hi Rudi, we will forgive you this time as long as you come back with more good ideas when you have mastered corporate life. Say hi to your better half for us as well.  :thumbsup:

Hi Rudi   :thumbsup:
Great to hear from you,what does the corporate do,you being expert on assemble things?
Apply your optimize skills to your factory and make it more efficient than competitors or whatever your corporate is about
Wife still making wine?
Never worry about typos on smartphone, more worry if it's you in control of message, or using fast sloppy typing + fast press send message, the suggesting words in control,so what you wanted to write been obfuscated to cryptic funny statement , embarrassing foolish message being sent :greenclp:
Especially when using names and slang,local dialect words, gets obfuscated

Speaking of Olly. I miss using that debugger. :-)

I wonder if it works on .elf executables under Linux?

I thought about getting back into Assembly programming.

I really liked the small file sizes.

I had linux many years ago and its installation disks was several GB development tools if installed full install,compilers,script engines and cool tried java native compiler,cool compiled java to .asm source files
though it was limited to nonGUI java applications
so you probably might need to find Linux debugger for .elf files,I havent tried if olly works inside Wine emulator?
its worth trying get back into assembly if you want it  :thumbsup:

Olly should work on windows executables in wine, but wouldn't work on .elf files. Olly looks for the headers for windows executables, to determine if valid PE file. Olly wouldn't know what an .elf executable is.
That being said, if you know how to write ollydbg plugins you could in theory make it do anything you want it to. But for .elf, you would basically have to write a mountain of code as ollydbg wasn't written to handle .elf files. So would probably be easier to write your own debugger/disassembler.  :tongue:  Not an easy undertaking I would imagine.
Just my two cents worth.  :biggrin:

Ok, thanks. I am wondering how I would use Olly in wine?

I could disassemble Windows exes.

Maybe study the code?

Like daydreamer, I haven’t run Ollydbg in wine myself. But should be able to run it in wine. Once ollydbg is opened, open an .exe in ollydbg to debug/disassemble the .exe there. I don’t have any Linux installed or I would check this, as I am curious about this myself.

I have it downloaded. If someone would like, I can test it with their code and see how Ollydebug works?
