Dear Gretl Team,
Some observations and thoughts about the new "instances"
(1) Let's suppose a situation where we have two opened Gretl
"instances" and we try to open a new data file by double-clicking.
How could we determine which of the (already opened) instance
will handle this new .gdt file? Now, I think Gretl uses the "older"
instances to handle this files (am I correct?).
of this. Besides, if you want to open a script in a given instance,
you always have (a) File>Open (b) drag-n-drop.Same in Italian, I guess. On the other hand, what "instance" means
(2) In Brazilian Portuguese the name "instance" is not intuitive
enough. Is it intuitive in other languages? I mean, I'm concerned
that the term is clear for Programmers, but not for average users.
in this context should be clear from the context, no?The name? Like what, "Gretl the third"? Benedict XVI? Please explain.
(3) I really do not know how difficult, in terms of coding, is to
implement the name of the new instances, but I think the PID
solution is not good from my aesthetical point of view.
