Re: engine of a dynamic chatbot with database

It would probably help if you printed all the possible inputs to choose from for who is going to remember or even know without a list what are legitimate inputs? AI has always fascinated me and one of the first programs I wrote amounted to using human language to store and retrieve information. I be...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

... That's why im not copying his version at all. However the ability to use types as objects is something you might want in the future. There is a reason such paradigms exist which will become clearer if you keep up with writing code. I personally live in the retro past so I tend to use FreeBASIC ...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

@joeyxl deltarho[1859] has a point when he warned against rushing someone ahead too fast. You will only lose heart and think it is all too hard. Best to move at your own speed with code you can fully understand and could write yourself. Move at your own pace, and take on new methods only when you ar...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

Not your grammar just the spelling of withdrawal. I use a spell checker :) Making use of functions you can break your code into modules which makes it easier to read and modify. You can define a TYPE to store account data. I have only defined one variable, balance, but more can be added. 'define a t...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

@BasicCoder2 You are rushing him and imposing your ideas; it may not be what he has in mind. i actually plan on adding more to it as i learn more. So let him develop. We can suggest better ways of doing something, but the ideas should come from him. Ok. I have deleted the suggested methodology. I t...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

@deltarho[1859] few years ago a friend, after I had written a few things for his hobby, fancied the idea of programming himself. I'd known him for a while and figured he would not take to it. He didn't. It is by no means everyone's 'cup of tea'. Wanting to be able to do X isn't the same as wanting ...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

@joeyxl Having just glanced at the old "Beginners Guide to freebasic" I can see it isn't an easy introduction to programming, it is more a technical overview of the language itself. It is also assuming the use of an older version of FreeBASIC so the FBWiki would be a better reference once ...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

@joeyxl To be honest, the python book i was reading (Python crash course) explained programming concepts alot easier, but that doesn't mean i want to give up, it just means i need more time to understand things. Although we all have different ways of learning for me it was by starting with simple co...

Re: old code and new compiler versions

@fxm Sure but if you want to cut/paste or include source code with new source code the old source code has to be rewritten and I found that a real chore. The same problem with Python 2 vs Python 3 source code. The same problem I think with the original discussion about learning QBASIC and then havin...

old code and new compiler versions

From thread that i didn't want to hyjack, https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&p=283456#p283456 Nothing annoys me more than wanting to update or edit FB code I wrote 11 years ago and having to modify it to work with the latest incarnation of FreeBASIC. Ever tried to compile a C/C++ ...

Re: Is FreeBASIC good for beginners to progrmaming?

@MrSwiss @caseih So are we trying to sell FreeBASIC as a language suitable for someone wanting to see if they like programming? If you are going to use FreeBASIC you might as well start with FreeBASIC and have the future way of coding continue as you started. Nothing annoys me more than wanting to u...
