Minimum Progress Version

twitter logo github logo Originally published at on ・1 min read

Up to the current version 23 the front page happily stated that you need at least 10.1B to run the DataDigger.

Today, it turned out that that is a lie 😦

The main program uses the FINALLY statement and that was introduced in version 10.1C so that is the minimum version you can use to run DataDigger.

If you are stuck on 10.1B and still want to use the DataDigger, just open up DataDiggerLib.p Β  and search for β€œFINALLY”:


Remove the FINALLY block entirely. On restart, DataDigger will recompile itself.

Know Not Only Your Weaknesses, But Strengths as Well

Most people want to develop self-awareness. Whether we are managers, entrepreneurs, or aspiring software engineers, the more knowledge we have of our strength and weaknesses, the easier life becomes.
