Re: Project of a multiplatform version of FreeBasic Miner

hello Roland Chastain
one thing that is suspect when a program compiled to 64-bit has problems is Integer variables, Integer is 32-bit on FB 32-bit and 64-bit on FB 64-bit
I suggest you try search and replace Integer with either Long or Integer<32>

Re: Slow printing to console screen

@fzabkar
the perception of slow or fast is subjective, your test does not give a performance benchmark, say in milliseconds to completion

while testing libraries produced by MXE (cross environment) https://mxe.cc/ I ran into this issue again was testing libcairo and Iczer's solution did solve the undefined symbol problem but the cairo clock would crash so tried including different msvcrt libs without Iczer's solution thinking that per...

Re: Building for Win32 under Win64 FB ??

hello softfoot you can combine both the 32 and 64-bit compilers in one directory, obviously you will need to rename fbc to something like fbc32.exe and fbc64.exe [or you could just keep the 64-bit of fbc.exe] the rest merges without conflict, for example you have the directories /lib/win32 and /lib/...

Re: Strange command line parsing behaviour

hello fzabkar
the code you provided should not cause any problems, there must be more to it that you are not revealing

Code: Select all

#include "windows.bi"
' do nothing
End

like jj said, do a clean install
