Maybe build tools + platform tools suffice. But installing the full suite is easier for sure. And you probably won't save too much cause the platform tools alone are quite big.

Re: Alternatives to Win32 API IDE's and programming

That's why there are so many GUI libraries out there. Some of the most popular ones are e.g. Qt and wxWidgets or Slint, to mention a newer one (all of them cannot really be used with FreeBasic unfortunately). Some FB-compatible ones are e.g. FLTK, IUP or GTK. However, I wouldn't recommend using FB f...

Re: Cairo DLL creation

Seems that this was easier than expected. I updated the original upload: https://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/files/prog/fb/libs/cairo-1.8.0.zip (renamed the old one to https://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/files/prog/fb/libs/cairo-1.8.0-debug.zip) All I did was adding two additional build options:...

Re: Cairo DLL creation

I see. The "D" suffix means that it's a debug build - didn't notice when building 😅, but fixing that should be easy. The other issue is the dependency on the MSVC-runtime library. This can be configured with the build options: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/build/reference/md-mt-ld-...

Tried a bit longer and got some test builds: https://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/files/prog/fb/libs/cairo-1.8.0.zip Haven't tested it, just checked the dependencies (which are only system ones). Compiled with VS 2022. Built manually using mason and a small patch to the build file adding "stat...

Re: Cairo DLL creation

The issue with the script is that is relies on the old autotools-based build tooling for cairo which has been removed since: Additionally, cairo's Autotools build system has been removed; from now on, cairo will only support the Meson build system. While the end result should be identical, further t...

Re: Missing MYSQL Header in the package

Thanks for your reply and clarification, I was currently using "mysql.bi" in the 64 bit version of Linux and Windows and they are working perfectly with the 64 libraries (Connector for C) provided by the Oracle site. Interesting. The mysql bindings have been created at a time when a 64-bi...

Re: Missing MYSQL Header in the package

The MySQL binding hasn't been updated for a very long time (>10 years) and isn't compatible with 64-bit systems yet. However, I've added MariaDB bindings a few years ago, which should work in most situations as drop-in replacement for MySQL. see https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=293580#p29...

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Thanks coderJeff, I'm using the new makefile option DEFAULT_CPUTYPE_ARM=FB_CPUTYPE_ARMV6 now for the ARMv6 RPI build instead of the patch. Also upgraded windows build toolchains to the following ones you mentioned: Also, in the next release I am planning to recommend the following win32 x86[_64] too...

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Hey St_W, do you patch fbc or do anything fancy with the ARM builds? There is a tiny modification for the armv6 build, e.g. described here: https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=297332#p297332 All the other builds use original sources without any patches. The toolchains I'm using for (cro...

Re: Xfont error in DOS

Sounds like you've declared the function 'XFONT::INTERFACE::BACKCOLOUR__set__ (unsigned long)' and also use it in 'SIGNONPASSWORD_CHANGE_1', but there's no implementation for it. Or at least the linker can't find the implementation. There could be multiple reasons for this. For example, you could be...
