Re: This (Solved)

In the world of C++, this is actually a pointer, and gets used to pass the current object to some other external function. In FB it's not a pointer, near as I can tell, so it's just a lexical thing. Hello, In VB.NET and VBA , THIS is named ME, and is used in a way similar to the FB's way. The other...

Re: programming for fun

A little drama in the forums here eh? You will ever have borderline people that seem taking pleasure (or fun if I keep in the mood of the topic) in sitting somewhere where this is not comfortable to make a judgement. Neither a really useful friend, neither totally useless. Neither a really good beh...

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (Updated August 3, 2018)

I will add behaviour to re-parse dirty files when the Function List is popped up. That should fix the trouble you're seeing. That would be sincerely great. Other things, rather strange. Maybe it has already been noticed but I didn't read the previous pages so excuse me if I'm describing something w...

Re: Quick Procedure for Copying Array of Simple DataType into a Dynamic Array

Have you compiled with the "-exx" option? Yes. Without it, I have "better" performances (I have a really slow computer here): Copying from an N sized source array to an unsized destination array Standard copy 7.077014 seconds array created in memory Quick copy 0.7545342 seconds ...

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (Updated August 3, 2018)

Yes thanks for this. Sorry for my poor wording sometimes, not my primary language :) I tried the FUNCTION LIST feature. I have nothing saved so it shows me a list like that: UNTITLED 1 UNTITLED 2 UNTITLED 3 When I click one of them, the message box vanishes and nothing happens.Shouldn't it show me s...

Re: Quick Procedure for Copying Array of Simple DataType into a Dynamic Array

@fxm, thanks for explaining. I launched the test. As you can see I'm on a rather crappy machine those days. I needed excel2007 so I took a old and dirty thing running painfully win7. This leads to those results for me (still the same advantage ratio for your quick copy of course when we compare the ...

Re: Quick Procedure for Copying Array of Simple DataType into a Dynamic Array

Hi, looks great! 3 questions I have... Does it work with multi-dimension arrays? Have some testing been done to compare the time consumed in a standard copy and this procedure? Why doesn't it work with constructable udts? Thanks however for this tip, I guess that this is more efficent by far than th...

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (Updated August 3, 2018)

Hello. First thanks for the great job.I finally found the time to try WinFBE. My first feeling is quite a positive one. The look is very sober. It looks like this forum at first sight, maybe it could be even more the case if the code window were grey rather than yellow, but this is just fine like th...

Re: Cheat prevetion for Ubytes

As far as I understand it, it's about locking down some of the bytes of a given buffer made with elementary bytes, some free to change, and others not. But I don't think this is a funny implementation, this uses a user defined datatype, so outside of this very restrictive context your buffer is not ...

Re: GetString()

But I think that loop until inKey()="" should be loop until k="" I also don't get why both GetKey() and InKey() are used. You must be right. Calling Inkey() in the loop test looks quite bad. I'll watch that. Why Inkey is used and Getkey? It's because, this is first a replacement...

GetString()

Hi, a possible implementation of a GetString method (understood as flush the keyboard buffer in a string as soon as the function is called, or wait for a key if the buffer is empty). Maybe there is a better idea, don't hesitate to communicate about it if you have it. Thanks. edit: found the bug func...

Re: Error: expected "="

If I'm allowed, I would express this with slightly more detail just in case. There is not such a thing as PAUSE predefined routine or command in FB (and you neither defined one yourself in the program). So FB interprets it as a variable name. And no variable can stand alone like this being like a si...

Re: Thoughts on moving things to Reddit?

Hi Pritchard. As said above, for some reasons Reddit tends not to display well. For me there is most of time a delay with a face or something. And I hardly can go further. It's a shame because the stuff hosted there is often of great interest. Don't you get this experience from your side?
