Re: Pure FB Runtime Library (in progress)

I just want to remind that, if main changes are made in the runtime, the file fbc/src/rtlib/dos/symb_reg.txt must be updated, for the dos version, or dynamic linking wouldn't work. To update it, one has to build the runtime, run the file maksymbr (that will update the file symb_reg), and then recomp...

Re: ESpeak Library ported to FB

This version loads the library dynamically, so it doesn't need to install libespeak-dev. Also, it can run even if espeak library is not installed (of course, if the variable espeak is set to 0 it means that speech synthesis commands are not available, and would crash the program if used).

Re: Nominations for Forum Moderators

I, too, nominate Imortis: he has already proved his skills with the magazine Back2Basic, he would be a good moderator

Re: Assembly VGA font Print Routines

This assembly code is good for windows, dos, and linux. For instance, using non-assembly print routines for a raspberry 1 would be way too slow. And using Intel x86 assembly print routine for a raspberry 1 would just not work, since raspberry 1 uses an ARM cpu that has a completely different instru...

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

Newer versions of Linux are supposed to support more hardware, and of course they are useless on old hardware. And on new hardware, the constraint of a floppy size makes no sense, since new computers don't have floppy units any more

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

Which Linux distro exactly would even pretend to be appropriate? Perhaps TinyCore ("Core" = 11 MB). Or maybe something that never comes with X11 by default, e.g. FreeBSD? Or even Minix3? BasLinux fits on two floppies.... and XWOAF fits on a single floppy, and it features a working GUI. Ba...

Re: sub-pixel NN blit

It would be more understandable, I think, if you wrote a little intro about what this code will do, and why

What happened to the Emscripten branch?

I see that there has been no development in the last years. I wonder if that branch could be merged with the original one, or if it is too different.

Re: Emulating a mainframe

That kind of interface, drawn using only ASCII character, is called TUI (Text User Interface). Google for it, there are several libraries designed to help for it.

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

@Gablea Yes, that approach would work on Linux, Windows and DOS. The same approach is used in the FreeBasic runtime libraries , too. @St_W Perhaps the performance impact of a framework like .NET might be neglectable, but the memory impact isn't, especially on old machines that have a small amount of...

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

As this program is just at the design stage I’m open to any idea’s. Ideally I would like to have the scanner support on a thread of its own but that would limit the operating systems I can use ( unless the dos complier is updated to support multithreading ) Ideal any solutions that are come up with...

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

Updating the database files is an operation that is performed in FreeBasic, or in a different program?

Because I am unsure if you need multitasking (running two different programs at the same time), or multithreading (running two different surbroutines of the same program at the same time).

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

Adding abstraction layers (like Mono/.NET, or a web interface) would increase portability, but it would also bloat the software, and increase hardware requirements. To make a native interface one would need a graphic driver, and a library to draw the interface itself (windows, lists, icons, text box...
