[Scilab-users] Scilab Atoms Issue

Hi, 

There is a little issue always bugging me, whenever an atoms module has been installed, it will be kept in "archives" folder, either in SCI or SCIHOME respective folder. 

Under some circumstances if the developer update some patch in the portal and and remain the same version, atomsSystemUpdate followed by atomsInstall the module will pick up the archived module instead of the latest one from the web. User need to manually delete them from the folder in order to get the latest one. 

Is there any function in atoms* which I might have miss out which could clear the archives? It sounds redundant to developers or advance user but it makes sense for normal Scilab user. 
 
Thanks.

Regards.
Chin Luh

Have you tried to run atomsUpdate(your_module) instead of atomsInstal(your_module), in addition to atomsSystemUpdate()?

If it does not work better, it would be worth reporting the issue on bugzilla.

Best regards
Samuel

Re: Scilab Atoms Issue

Hi Samuel, 

Thanks. I will try your suggestion when I update the file with the same version number next time.

Currently any changes I did I would create a new subversion for it, or just a small patch file. I was thinking it could be just mentioned as "SOP" instead of reporting as a bug. 

Will keep you posted on this.

Regards,
Chin Luh
