Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

Thanks Xusinboy. - file must have the UTF-8 BOM or OPEN will fail - encoding "utf8" and "utf-8" specifiers are both valid, the manual doesn't mention that. The change from 1.06 to 1.07 is due to: - github #145: WSTRING concat and assign buffer (&=) overrun I didn't notice at ...

Re: GCC compile delay on large projects?

The long compile time for gcc is due a bug in string building found within the gcc emitter itself: Speed issue with string concatenation and a solution Memory allocation study for character data of var-len string I don't think there is a bug report on sf.net. gas emitter can emit data statements to ...

Re: FreeBASIC Namespace Project

After re-reading this topic from the top, I get the feeling the interested participants are generally in agreement. For the big picture view, this is my understanding and opinion: for some types of programs, the many symbols (keywords) defined by fbc by default just get in the way. For example, writ...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

The 403 - Forbidden jj2007 saw yesterday was due to a filter I added yesterday. I was testing it for like 2 seconds and he just happened to get it. We were getting hammered with traffic. Since then there have been changes in the attackers tactics and I've been fighting off the assault all day. Howev...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

Only the number of Registered+Hidden users are members that have actually logged in. The number of guests are the number of unique IP's seen and can't be trusted to be anything meaningful. 100+ unique IP's every minute, creating dozens of page requests every second. I'm reluctant to report what I kn...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

There will probably be more outages getting this locked down. Sorry, I don't know how long it will take. Hopefully can keep the forum at least partially usable in the interim. It might be badly behaving crawler bot out of China, but has all the characteristics of a DDoS attack. Well behaved legit cr...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

Server is at 100% usage trying to keep up with page requests, mostly for the forum's membership list. I have disabled the membership page for now.

Compared to earlier in the year, fb.net has 3000% more unique visitors recently. Starting around august started to grow exponentially.

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

- I wrote functions for basic array processing, which currently sit as a PR on Github. - I wrote code for real unicode support of I/O functions in Window. Needs some polishing, but currently sits as a PR at Github - I´m writing string processing functions (extract, parse, replace, remove, etc.) for...

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

Hiding your new words in a namespace is only of limited help, because you must either use the namespace.procedure syntax, or you must code "using <namespace>" which then adds all of these words to the global namespace as long as "using" is active. So implementing "using&quo...

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

Well, i have learned that adding multiple new key words (like in your proposal) is a "no go" - the more the more words are needed. Some even don´t want to add one single new word to the global namespace, however justified this might be. The macro method i propose keeps all procedures insi...

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

There have already been discussions about how new features should be added to the language. I can see two positions: 1.) don´t add new keywords to the main namespace, put everything new into an include file into it´s own namespace in order not to enlarge and "pollute" the main namespace. ...

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

The array.insert() syntax looks oop, while array(insert, args) looks odd. What about ArrayInsert() AudioOpen() AudioPlay() NetConnect() NetTransmit() etc? I would not be worried about namespace problems as long as it is consistent and Google doesn't find hits for FreeBasic ArrayInsert etc... This n...
