Re: Compiling the runtime library

IIRC, MSYS2 created problems on St_W's Jenkins build server, which where gone,
after switching back, to MSYS ... (can't remember the exact reason).

Re: Compiling the runtime library

There might be a issue similar to: exported proc (aka: public) and, internal proc (aka: private).

I agree, that this may be related, to a missing compiler switch (exclude private's).
Do you use a utility (make, msys, msys2) or, just command line?

Re: Compiling the runtime library

... the library format shouldn´t change between versions - or am i wrong here? AFAIK, since fixes and/or imrovements may necessitate changes to internal lib's too, it is a 'wise ' choice, to use one (and the same) compiler version, for a complete FBC build ... (incl. fbCRT, fbGFX2). (GCC versions m...

Re: Compiling the runtime library

Is the version of GCC the same, as the one used, to 'make' respective FBC?
(check: release notes, of the FBC version)

Re: Print2Pdf , cmd line tool to convert files to pdf

From my point of view, there is something important missing, if the aim is, to: replace tool(s) like PDFCreator, which is "generation of unique file-name(s)", aka: "file-name" + "save-date" + "save-time" + ".PDF" , or similar ... This is under the fo...

Re: Squares

@albert,

seems, you are looking for a BCD encoder (binary coded decimal).
You may want to look at: Union as 'own' data-type which is only at byte level currently,
but can be extended by yourself, if needed/wanted ...

Re: Substitute text into a string

AFAIK, compiling with -pp tells the preprocessor to expand the #Define (#Macro)
into a string, which whould then be printable ... (no direct method I know of).

Re: windows message & dialog boxes

OK, you've got it, I'll report it, in future.
I've actually thought up to this day, that you're preferring "self regulation", in the forum.

MrSwiss, please don't take it upon yourself to admonish new forum users. Well, just to give you something to consider too: New user: TheRaven, on the 9th in this section alone, did it 8 times, the same day ... I just think, that such must be acted upon, in a very timely manner, otherwise people bec...

Re: Getting blocked by Immunify360 while accessing the forum

If your cpanel shows it disabled, then I'm guessing the hosting provider is running it at a higher level. Considering what caseih noted: you just might gain some finer-grained control, if you actually "enable" it, in the CPanel (just assuming, here). Some options might pop up, currently h...

Just happened again, while uploading "using ENUM" (Tips & Tricks) ... I've done a few "preview's" and edits, then "submit" which failed. A second try succeeded (after dealing with Immunify360). Btw. the graphics in the "captcha", have a rather abysmal qual...

using ENUM

This shows the use of ENUM's in order to simplify e.g. command line processing. Assume: you want to read a simple to use command-line-switches, which in fact, would require a rather complex evaluation in your code ... The example chosen is a FBC compiler call (programmatically), which we know to hav...

Re: createprocess

This is a way late to the gate reply, I found this post very helpful, thank you.
Why, then do it, in the first place?

Btw. overwriting/renaming a threads title is: 'bad news' ! (related to forum-search)
Apart from the fact, that 'bumping' old threads, is discouraged (plse. stop doing it).

Therefore, 'bumping' old threads is discuraged (plse. stop doing it).
