Dave,

 

I just compiled it on a Raspberry Pi 4 and all went well.

No makefile errors.

fldigi 4.1.08.14

Dave
 

Missing info on 4.1.08.14:

The <TIMER:nnn> macro tag is now designed to actually repeat the entire macro at the specified time interval

|<----- macro transmission -----><-------------------fill time----------------------->|
|<============== TIMER INTERVAL ================>|

If the macro transmission time is equal to or greater than the specified TIMER INTERVAL the timer will not execute.  A 5 second information window will open telling you the time period required.  You can  use this to test the duration of your macro text/audio etc.  Set the TIMER to 1... <TIMER:1> and you will guarantee that the info dialog will be displayed.

Re: Flmsg strangeness; probably operator induced.

The first thing to check is your MISC > NBEMS configuration.
It should look like this

image.png

Note that the path to flmsg.exe needs to be correct, or the incoming wrapped message will not open (or display, if FLMSG is already launched).

If this does not help, it may be that the HEADER portion of the incoming message is being corrupted.
Without the HEADER info, WRAP and FLMSG do not work.

Dave,

 

Got the Makefile errors fixed.

 

Each of the three Makefiles (main, doc and src) have

two lines that have accidently continued on the next line.

I just removed the c/r on each of them so that it was all

on one line.  Everything compiles now on the Raspberrry Pi 4.
