EDIT: oops, I had generator_0.csv instead of receiver_0.csv !

Trying again...

Still got errors, plus it made few more receiver-#.csv files with bitcoin addresses instead of groupcoin addresses in them

By the way, just in case you didn't see the last edit:

EDIT: I just noticed that the block number is 5108, I thought it wouldn't be more than 2000 for a week.  So for testing, change the step to 100,000.  To do that replace:

"receiver.py "

with:

"receiver.py -step 100000 -height "

Notice also that for some reason one of my four CPU's threads was stopped right at the start.

(Maybe though that could be caused by the miner connecting, maybe it drops one of its CPU mining threads in favour of feeding getwork to the miner? Hmm not sure.)

On the bright side though, the other machine did receive the 0.02 Smiley

EDIT: the string you are returning from your getPythonResult routine is allocated inside that routine, thus is a local variable of that routine. It would need to be copied into some larger-scope allocated memory to survive beyond the invocation of the routine. That might be the memory problem. Do std::string objects auto-allocate space for themselves or do you have to do that explicitly like in C ?

Yes, that gives memory errors:
..

On the bright side though, the other machine did receive the 0.02 Smiley

Since there were no python errors posted and the other machine received coins, that probably means receiver.py is working correctly.

Code:
ThreadBitcoinMiner exiting, 3 threads remaining
..

Memory errors and a thread dying indicate it could be a popen thread problem.  Popen is apparently not thread safe:
http://lists.uclibc.org/pipermail/uclibc-cvs/2011-May/029585.html

So please try running the miner with only one thread.  If that fixes the error, then unfortunately, the only certain way I can see to fix the problem is to port all of receiver.py and pluribusunum to C++ in devcoin.  Otherwise, maybe there is some thread safe way of calling python code from a multithreaded C++ application.

Threads might turn out to be a problem, but might it simply be that the memory you allocated for the result of your getPythonResult routine gets de-allocated when that routine ends, thus leaving the char* pointers referring to it pointing at de-allocated memory?

In other words did you see my edit above:

EDIT: the string you are returning from your getPythonResult routine is allocated inside that routine, thus is a local variable of that routine. It would need to be copied into some larger-scope allocated memory to survive beyond the invocation of the routine. That might be the memory problem. Do std::string objects auto-allocate space for themselves or do you have to do that explicitly like in C ?

EDIT AGAIN: I don't understand C++ scope, I tried moving the returned string's allocation to just above the function so it would exist outside the function, but then inside the function claimed it was not in scope! So I guess I have no idea how to use variables that exist outside a function from inside the function. Weird as surely lots of functions are using variables declared outside them, I just haven't figured out how they decide which ones they can use and which ones they will decide are "out of scope"...

Well, it's worth a try.  Try using the code below.

Code:
   int pathLength = 8192;
    char path[pathLength];
    std::ostringstream heightStream;
    heightStream << pindexPrev->nHeight+1;
    std::string heightString = heightStream.str();
    getPythonResult(std::string("receiver.py -step 100000 -height ") + heightString, path, pathLength)
    std::string payTo = std::string(path);

Code:
void getPythonResult(const std::string& argumentString, char* path, int pathLength)
{
    FILE *filePointer;

    filePointer = popen((std::string("python ") + argumentString).c_str(), "r");

    while (fgets(path, pathLength, filePointer) != NULL)

    int status = pclose(filePointer);
}

Quote
EDIT AGAIN: I don't understand C++ scope..

I don't understand it either, I just keep playing around with a trivial test case till it works.

EDIT2:  I just updated the code. deleting the return variable.  Path is only passed through now, it is converted to a std:string outside.

I moved the declarations of the crucial items to the very top of the file, just inside the critical block identifier:

//
// Global state
//

CCriticalSection cs_main;

    const int pyResultLength = 8192;
    char pyResult[pyResultLength];




and I changed the routine a little to accomodate that:

std::string getPythonResult(const std::string& argumentString)
{
    FILE *filePointer;

    filePointer = popen((std::string("python ") + argumentString).c_str(), "r");

    while (fgets(pyResult, pyResultLength, filePointer) != NULL)

    int status = pclose(filePointer);
    return std::string(pyResult);
}

This time all four threads ran. But I still got memory errors. I am not confident though that I am not still confusing pointers and arrays. I got compile errors trying to use &pyResult but am not sure just plain old pyResult is actually the same thing as &pyResult. Been a long time since I used C a lot. Gotta think hard on this.

Could be you are right though about it being a thread problem.

I don't know if I can run only one thread on demand other than by running it on a single-CPU machine, both of which are 32 bit Fedora 14 not the 64 bit Fedora 15 I have been running these tests on so far. I will have to move the code to the 32-bit compiling-machine and try.

If the thing is not thread safe then maybe we can just do some kind of semaphore around it, that example you linked to seemed to be using some kind of bracketing of the endangered area with some kind of signal to keep the threads from trying to all use it at the same time by the look of it.

Using C++ instead of python is probably the least-hackish way to go though of course.

Using C++ instead of python is probably the least-hackish way to go though of course.

Eventually, we'd have to move to C++ for speed in any case.  I'm starting to port over receiver.py, but not all pluribusunum at first.  So at the beginning it would just read from a file on disk, later it would get internet files and so on.

It will take at least a day to get something useful.  In the meantime, as I make a function, I might post it, like the function below:

Code:
// Get the entire text of a file.
std::string getFileText(const std::string& fileName)
{
std::ifstream fileStream(fileName.c_str());
if (!fileStream.is_open())
{
return std::string();
}
std::string fileText;
fileStream.seekg(0, std::ios::end);
fileText.reserve(fileStream.tellg());
fileStream.seekg(0, std::ios::beg);
fileText.assign((std::istreambuf_iterator<char>(fileStream)), std::istreambuf_iterator<char>());
return fileText;
}

The basic file reading address code is now at:
https://raw.github.com/Unthinkingbit/charity/master/receiver.h

Please download it into the folder which includes the CreateBlock file.  Then, add the following include at the top of the CreateBlock file:

#include "receiver.h"

then in the CreateBlock function, replace:

std::string payTo = "2hix2ZoA175cC1aF6fFwnyt3XuwqQMKPg9M";

with:

std::string payTo = getCoinAddressString(std::string("receiver.csv"), (int)pindexPrev->nHeight+1);


If all works, the miner should send to the receivers in your receiver_0.csv file.

Currently we have I think about two to four people with clients online listening on port 51333 so that other clients have someone to connect to.

We have people lurking on the #groupcoin channel in Freenode IRC.

We have tested some of the feaures DEVcoin is to have; DEVcoin will be starting from scratch once we have deeloed and tested the code for the desired features.

I have now set the four byte hello sequences for GRouPcoin that wll prevent it fro mtalking to bitcoin, testnet, namecoin etc if it happens to stumble across such a client, best come to the IRC channel for co-ordination in switching to that system all at once to minimise time of not being able to connect.

I have been testing new code privately without affecting the real GRouPcoin blockchain, which should not need any "restart" unless for some reason we are unable to develop DEVcoin (on which development seems to be proceeding okay).

See you at #groupcoin ?

I have a fairly complex proposal for a new currency which addresses numerous flaws in bitcoin.
Is there an alternate venue to discuss crpytocurrencies which is not forum.bitcoin.org?

The forum is generally hostile to posts that point out problems with bitcoin and propose possible solutions.
A new discussion platform would be a good first step to generating a sustained flow of innovative ideas.
The new platform doesn't need to tied to any particular project, but it should not be focused on new projects rather than bitcoin.

Is there anything like this around yet?

In the meantime, I will work on a blog to introduce my own proposal in moderate detail (not done yet).

Most variants are simply different, they exist not because bitcoin has flaws but because bitcoin works just fine thus they hope that variants will also work. Is it really necessary to take the position that bitcoin is flaws in order to "justify" a variant?

Yes, in my opinion. But we don't have to agree on that.

This sounds like a workable site to host such a thing: http://www.freeforums.org/.

So can someone please write a quick guide on how to start mining on the groupcoin existing network or its testnet?

I have tried to work this out by going back and reading posts but I am a bit confused. I am using a Linux coin harddrive install and have compiled multicoin.
