Re: clarification of 'IF'

The best you can do is edit the post and change it to say something like, "deleted."

Re: What do new users need?

Okay so we're in violent agreement then. FB needs high DPI support. Because that's exactly what you're proposing with your library.

Re: What do new users need?

Let's try it a different way. I have a 1920x1200 screen. I design some graphical program that has what appears to me to be reasonable and usable interface. Font is a nice size, .16 inches tall on my screen. Say 18 pixels tall. About 4 mm. Let's say you have a 4k screen, 3840 x 2160, but a similar si...

Why? Suppose I want to create a 320x200 game with all the nostalgia that goes along with that. Suppose it's run on a High DPI screen, which is more and more common. Now what?

Re: What do new users need?

Doesn't Windows automatically scale apps that aren't high DPI aware? Granted the scaling makes everything blury. On Linux I don't imagine FB has any support at all for high DPI and scaling factors.

Re: What do new users need?

Lately I've seen a resurgence of interest in old 8-bit computers with built-in BASIC. I'm not sure if it's just old guys waxing nostalgic like me, or if some of the younger children are getting into it during covid times. But despite the horrid syntax and lack of structural syntactic sugar, there re...

Slim FreeBasic installer for Windows (Split from FreeBASIC 1.08 Development)

Oh sure. I'm sure if someone volunteered to make an installer script Paul would be happy to use it and create an installer. An archive is still acceptable, though, just not a rar file. If you give any Windows user a zip file, they'll know what to do with it also. Windows will even let you run progra...

Slim FreeBasic installer for Windows (Split from FreeBASIC 1.08 Development)

Yeah it's definitely l337. That's about all I can say for it. It's really not the best choice for this sort of distribution, aimed at beginners as it were. Zip is a universal standard. Sure telling a user to go get 7zip isn't crazy burdensome. But it's something I wouldn't bother doing, personally.

Slim FreeBasic installer for Windows

Off topic, really, but since we're on the subject: download 7-zip or something that can deal with 'rar' packages. (*) Great work by Paul and others to provide this. Thank you. I realize that rar certainly had its popularity among certain folks throughout the years and that it can often compress more...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

And yet, when I try to build a very, very simple Windows GUI example, the compiler greets me with lots of error messages that can be "healed" only with significant typecasting acrobatics. That's the way I've always felt about win32 programming in any language. In FB's case those acrobatic...

Re: Why is there a Known Compiler Bug from 2012 still in?

Is there a problem with GCC's -O3 optimization? I ran his test code with GCC and -O 3 and it works fine. Maybe I'm not reading this correctly but the -vec 2 issue only applies to the gas backend, does it not?

Re: What is the FB equivalent to Vector in C++ ?

FB has dynamic arrays. Also people have implemented lists before if you search the forum. Although FB is object-oriented, it does not have templates like C++ does, so there's no STL-like library. Some would argue that's a plus! As far as data structures goes, FB is closer to plain C than C++, with t...

He means the font used in graphics mode.

This does not work:

Re: print e stacktrace [straddling topic]

I am not sure I understand your post. Are you asking a question about printing a stack trace? Or are you asking about optimization and profiling?
