Re: clarification of 'IF'

Would the word "immediately" be clearer? For illustration purposes, here is a multi-line IF, with a colon immediately after the THEN: dim as boolean a 'a = true if a then : print "5" : print "again" : end if Or as a more readable multi-line IF using linebreaks: dim as b...

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

I don’t want to make any assumptions here, but it’s possible that errors with -O2 could be that something in the program is causing Undefined Behaviour, which works as desired in -O1 but not in -O2. Something harder to detect, like a buffer overrun clobbering an important part of memory. (Just specu...

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

Sorry for the time this bug has cost you. The vectorisation changes were added a long time ago by Bryan Stoeberl, and I don't think he's been around for some time. We should perhaps deprecate the -vec functionality and mark it as unstable/unmaintaned. It's perhaps obsolete now with the gcc emitter, ...

Re: Wiki improvements

Mainly just to clean things up a bit I think. At the time, I maybe thought that lang qb users could do with more tailored documentation? I don’t know... I half thought the active/visible page parameters were only available in Lang qb, but it looks like lang fb has its own syntax for that too. Maybe ...

Re: hey all, new programming language support gwbasic,freebasic

Since there is some interest still in keeping the thread open, I won’t intervene to close it. I don’t think at this time there’s enough uncivility to close it for that reason. From a personal perspective though, it does bother me how closed the project is. It seems like an interesting project, but n...

Re: hey all, new programming language support gwbasic,freebasic

I’ve noted the complaints against this thread and this software. When I originally downloaded the .7z archive for this project, I couldn’t find any source code for the main program. Has this now changed? If not, I will lock this thread (unless another moderator beats me to it), since it’s blatant mi...

Hi, just to say I've split the thread from https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.p ... 31#p270431 to bring all the posts together. Hope that's helpful.

Re: hey all, new programming language support gwbasic,freebasic

I’d feel much more comfortable about this compiler if it provided its source code. That’s what GitHub is meant for. You should also work out how to use Git properly, not just keep deleting and readding .7z files. Most people will not go to the trouble of downloading and extracting each version to se...

It might depend on the platform or possibly whether its command line or graphics. I can’t check currently..

Re: FBIDE

There probably aren’t many people running FBIDE under Linux.
Does top indicate that the memory is being consumed by any other process?

Re: PUT# again

Your example (with small fixes so it compiles) should, unless I’m mistaken, write 8 bytes of data (the size of a ulongint) to the start of the file. Is that what you’re seeing? You should be about to write an exact number of bytes in Binary mode with something like: Put #f, , *cast(ubyte ptr, p&...

Re: FBIDE

Bear in mind that FBIDE has not seen any development for a long, long time, so anything you report is very unlikely to ever be fixed..
If you can verify that FBIDE itself is hogging the memory, then you should be able to Kill the process to free up the memory without logging out.

Re: FBIDE

How are you running FBIDE through Linux? Is this through Wine, or some kind of native build? Perhaps the programs are not finishing properly. This might happen if you had Sleep at the end, but the program wasn’t showing in a console. If you run 'ps aux' in a terminal, you might see lots of copies of...

EDIT: I was thinking PNG compression is loseless but on the forum the normalized rgb 2D sphere has a ellipse inside but not if I run it on the monitor at home. May be the result of a fast png decompresser from firefox I will compare it with an other browser. Do you see the ellipse also ? Joshy EDIT...
