Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

Real FORs only evaluate the bounds once to calculate a number of iterations Right, with my own FOR...NEXT construct I do that for integers, singles and doubles alike. It's by far the simplest and fastest solution. In particular, with non-integer counters you save a float-to-float comparison, which ...

Re: Controlling the window size of a compiled program?

In essence they would be tweaking the system registry each time to run a console program, which is a bit heavy IMHO Not that heavy, actually. But today I tinkered with a console application that should save its settings to something like HKCU\Console\C:_SomeFolder_SomeApp.exe, and guess what? It do...

Re: freebasic on win32s

Hi MySoft, that's a great project! I am still running a big 16-bit application that uses lots of 32-bit stuff through thunking, it runs fine in XP but I doubt it would run in a Win 3.1 plus Win32s environment. May I ask what is your motivation to do this? Even finding the hardware must be non-trivia...

Re: Controlling the window size of a compiled program?

Just checked with Win7-64, the console does remember font settings. Under XP, there would be a box asking whether to remember it or not. In any case, it's a registry setting, probably a key like HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\C:_MyApp.exe

Just tested that with a downloader that uses WinInet, and it works fine, i.e. no unblocking needed.

Your i3 is an i7 with some defective parts. So it got "binned". Why it supports a much higher frequency is an interesting question, though.

Re: Upgraded to FreeBASIC 64bit, now problems

Native 64 bit integers run the fastest on 64 bit hardware. So is the same for 32 bit integers on 32 bit hardware. Interesting. Any benchmarks proving this? I am afraid I haven't seen 32-bit hardware for quite a while. 32-bit code, yes, all the time - but on 64-bit hardware. https://software.intel.c...
