Request translation of C header <sys/queue.h>

It's an important C headers alongside many other important C headers not available in our crt headers set. When you translating C headers that have TALQ_* and fbfrog failed exactly at this then it's definitely <sys/queue.h>. Please translate it so we will able to use it with FB. Thanks.

Because the next version of fbc (1.0.9) going to be released. It's not us the newcomers.

Re: Is it single inheritance or multiple inheritance?

Oh sorry.
Gambas is not a fully Object Oriented Programming Language but it's tending to approach this.

I took what the OP said for granted and do not check it myself. Sorry everyone again.

Err, Gambas is a fully OOP language and FreeBASIC is not. I afraid you are sounding too arrogant.

Re: Is it single inheritance or multiple inheritance?

Can any of you two describe what is wrong with FreeBasic's current model, and why? (besides the noobish 'it's too C++' argument, that is) Can any of you two describe the benefits we will have if we switch to, say, Objective C's model? (Gambas isn't even worth considering; and event-driven programmi...

Re: FBGUI library for Windows 2

Because there is a huge number of users who prefer static linking and do not like unnecessary dll files in their project. And I am one of these users. Whenever possible, I choose a static library. If the static library is not available, I use the dynamic library. This is like religion. But your sou...

Re: Accessing array element via pointer like C?

By all means, please. Go have fun with the language. Code something you can show us and be proud, no matter how small. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Don't encourage pointless discussions if you can't do something about it, or don't have enough know-how to realistically determine whether something m...

Re: Objective FreeBASIC?

The document (wiki) is vastness (https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/PageIndex). I feel it's really hard to search for a specific topic. What I used to learn FB (https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/CatPgProgrammer) is too limited. Either it's been years since you looked at this Programmer's Guide , or maybe ...

Re: Objective FreeBASIC?

Objective FB is intended to live with normal FB. Objective FB should be implemented as a dialect. It will not replace the current OOP implementation. It will not complement the current OOP implementation. Nor you are able to use it side by side with the current. Objective FB is a separate world. Obj...

Re: Objective FreeBASIC?

j8w344c6: BASIC users here are two groups: QuickBASIC users (much older) and VB6 users (younger). I have no clue how you came to this conclusion. I am here because I SPECIFICALLY searched for a language for my pet project. That search took 2 years. D was the top choice: fast, complete (native strin...

Re: Objective FreeBASIC?

PoseidonFB is not written in FB, but it's the only real IDE for FB IMO. Only it really parse the code to provide code completion rather the suggest completions by word based method like tags and keywords file. Other IDEs also parse code files. For example VisualFBEditor, VisualFreeBasic and others....

Re: Accessing array element via pointer like C?

Munair, the compiler obviously translates everything down anyway, all the while loops, do loops e.t.c. are down to goto's for example. So you cannot use that for an excuse not to shorten down code. The high level language is for ease of writing code, I always use var+=1 or whatever now in fb. inc a...

No. I definitely can. Look at the way they code and you could easily do.
