Re: fbfrog header translator

Thanks. Are you pretty much done with this? I'm working on rPI stuff right now. Translates aren't too hard; I get them to work without that much difficulty. I would have sets of questions and more if you were to be active on this. If not, it certainly works well enough to save so much time. (With fb...

Re: fbfrog header translator

Is there a provision to comment a line in the '*.fbfrog' or '*.options' file?

This would be helpful.
One favorite option file can be copied across many translates with 'touchups' for specific files without having to search down that one single file that had the exception you need again.

Re: Where is printexpressionlist defined?

Perhaps a very **simple** extra example could be added to the docs to display this 'feature' of embedding using in the expressionlist.

Quick, easy, done.

Re: Speed issue with string concatenation and a solution

A question to the group: Would it be possible to add an alternate string library, called by a compile option or lib include, that would use a globally allocated string memory pool for all string functions? Could this could dramatically increase string operation speed in most cases? Of course, it wou...

Re: fbfrog header translator

Did the second branch get far enough along to be useful? (60 commits ahead/4 commits behind master - philosophical shift?) Were there features that would/should be rolled into the master? An immediate project of mine is using the Raspberry PI for several modest tasks in a much larger network and I w...

Re: Intrinsic defines

Anything for now is good. When a table or list is presented, it is better to stay all on one page to be able to see it all at once. Easy to collate in your head. If you have to go to another page, make it a real (visual) page and concept break - couple of blank lines, even. I, personally, would spen...

Re: Intrinsic defines

Actually, should be on CatPgPreProcess as a key component of the preprocessor information as one of the large groups, but there just isn't room there. Just because CatPgPreProcess starts with " Commands that ..." doesn't mean that these should be excluded. That wording can be changed. I wo...

Re: topic proposal: differences/changes when you move to multithread

Globals are like goto and BASIC : some programming GOD somewhere said they are evil and bad, and the 'educated' people teach that over and over. But at one time, every teacher told their students the earth was flat. Mr. Torvalds has loudly disagreed with the opinion regarding that first term; we all...

Re: Include Digger

Questions:

Does this just catalog the .../freebasic/inc folder?

Can it start with a source file and THEN catalog all source derived from that source?

Re: topic proposal: differences/changes when you move to multithread

That code as an example of thread usage is EXCELLENT.

Simple, uncomplicated, zero extra 'noise' added to distract from the example.

I wish more sample code was like this.

Re: topic proposal: differences/changes when you move to multithread

When threads become fundamental in your programming techniques, it seems almost an art when you try to explain it to a newcomer: there are SO MANY traps, pitfalls, caveats, blind spots and simple hard-to find errors that make the learning curve so very steep. Perhaps thread learning can be divided u...

Re: Feature request: instrisic Defines for console / gui mode

I program in Linux only, but ...

I simply ask SCREENINFO about the driver.

If it is an empty string, I am in console.
(Some of the other info also confirns NOT graphics, but this is the easiest.)

Does that work in Windows, also?
