I had FreeDOS box talking with my OpenBSD's dhcp server. Installing packet driver and stuff was straithforward, I tried trumpet TCP ABI. DOS IRC client in QB but that was all that time allowed me to do. Next free slot I will look into interfacing with FB. Sidenote DOS TCP/IP is really messy.

MultiPoint is useless Microsoft .NET crap loaded over much lower level MS API: RawInput This API has access to all connected input devices to machine. PS/2 devices end up in same pool with USB ones. Altough cursor and keyboard input is shared device, thus any mouse will move single cursor, if I reme...

why not create full fledged CMS site for QB/FB Express, I believe it would become much more manageable.

Something new about this?
I have packet driver working on my DOS box and OpenBSD assigns IP address using BOOTP nicely to trumpet's stack.
I would like to try wattcp32 with FB.

Cool. What language did you use to compile it? Is this supposed to be real question? Runtime library is written in C, compiler is written in FB itself. Check out DrV's tutorial for compiling on OpenBSD, it worked for me. It is well written. I would like to see some compiler maintainers looking more...

fbdoc exporter

Hi guys,

from search I concluded you use fbdoc exporter to generate chm files. Is there more info on this tool or its source code? Where can I get it? I would like to experiment with wiki as help file authoring tool in same way as you are, and automatically generate the chm. Thx for the reply.

Maybe you have problem with name mangling or what. FB is not in reality very windows friendly regarding function exports. Download DependencyWalker open your EXE, with that you can check what functions got exported and how. DLL, SYS, OCX, ACM, SCR or EXE have the same PE file format on windows. If y...

1.) Several links about this: VB Sample C net code example some QB abc packets 2.) I don't know about this, maybe packing with upx will be enough for you. Anyway there is no way for you to encrypt the strings reliably, any encryption can be broken sooner or later if you have access to the program im...

Hehe, this is normal, you can find text string even in normal windows programs. Easiest way you can encrypt string is to use XOR method it's quite easy and fast. However any only bit experienced hacker will be able to decrypt these strings.

Packet driver TCP/IP stack

Hi is there any way to use TCP/IP in DOS FreeBASIC? I've heard that there is some TCP/IP stack supporting packet driver for DJGP or what the name of DOS GCC is.

32-bit processors from pIII up are able to use something like 36 TB or like that of memory, when you enable special segmented mode. It's kinda like 16 bit real mode, instead it's 32 bit segmented pmode ;). But there are segments & offsets so all that segment offset stuff returns. However I guess...
