Re: 32bit TSR

I saw that I added regular lists (not listbox) years ago, it should be the last link I put. I never added a taskbar (it is a GUI, not a multitasking environment, after all), but it would not be difficult to use a properly shaped window to simulate it. By the way, at the time I worked on it, FreeBasi...

The code is hosted here:

I see that on my mail server the mail we exchanged are still available, in case.

Re: 32bit TSR

I also remembered one thing: in QBasic there was a solution to copy files in background, while you were using your software, and it was used in a GUI called Windoze. Years ago I ported it to FreeBasic... and I remember you were interested, and we also exchanged some mails, to get it to work on your ...

Re: Help testing ALSA streaming

Perfect. So, in general it works, although on some implementations of Alsa SoundQueue is less precise (and it makes no difference what solution is used)

Re: Help testing ALSA streaming

Thank you. And what happens if SoundQueue is modified into: function SoundQueue() as integer if alsa then dim value as long snd_pcm_delay(hDevice, @value) return value*SampleSize elseif OSS>0 then dim value as long ioctl fileno(cast (any ptr,fileattr(1,2))), SNDCTL_DSP_GETODELAY, @value return value...

Re: 32bit TSR

Marcov.... I am sure someone in the past asked V1ctor why he tried to rebuild quick basic, instead of just switching to visual basic for windows. And I am sure that someone asked you why you tried to rebuild a copy of turbo pascal instead of just switching to Delphi. But neither V1ctor, nor you acce...

Re: 32bit TSR

DOS is obsolete, that's true. But it was an important part of computer history, and in some niche applications it still is the best option. An option that we have thanks to FreeDos, otherwise we could only rely on unsupported abandonware. FreeDos made possible other important projects, like DosBox. ...

Re: 32bit TSR

By reading some of Gablea's previous post, I have the impression that the reason he still needs DOS is hardware-related (writing software for ATM-like devices, based on old hardware, but too expensive to be replaced) Also, I remembered this specific distro: https://distro.ibiblio.org/baslinux/ , tha...

Re: 32bit TSR

Two things: HX DOS extender provides support for multithreading, not for multitasking. To use it, you have to compile using the Win32 version of FreeBasic. By the way, version 1.06 of FreeBasic for DOS supports native multithreading (based on a old, buggy library, but it works). So, if you want to u...

Re: Help testing ALSA streaming

Since the asoundrc file affects all installed applications, it is better not to modify it for a single one (with the risk of breaking sound in the others)
