(Thank you, dodicat. As I said in my second post, I understand my original problem.) Thank you - Hero TJF Thank you - site admin counting pine. This is the beginners board. In the FAQ - it tells me what BBCode is. It also says: " For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accesse...

Re: rnd, or a program problem? strange results

ok - but I didn't format the first post - just copy, paste.

Not sure why it is different.

I have finished looking for instructions on using the BBC code, and see none.
A guide is supposed to be on the posting page, but I see none.

No problem: no more posts, fxm

Re: rnd, or a program problem? strange results

MichealW: the breakdown into smaller intervals is a good test/display of distribution, but doesn't scale well with select case. And I'm old and might forget, so, again, I beat up the problem so I learn it well. ' test random distribution - did not fix for negatives dim shared as integer last = 10, f...

Re: rnd, or a program problem? strange results

Interesting discussion, but my real interest centered around using the first RND example of doubles to generate integers. Now I have learned the rounding rules in FB. ' display int rounding rules dim as single f print print "number int() fix() cint()" f = 1.2 print f, int(f), fix(f), cint(...

Re: rnd, or a program problem? strange results

I have my answer. RND does not hit 1, and rounding/converting is not what one expects. I do not see a (simple) way to use the double to integer conversion of the first/last routine. The distribution is correct with direct integer generation. Is there a way to get 'round up' behavior without writing ...

rnd, or a program problem? strange results[closed]

I run this, and I see strange results. I do not see what I am doing wrong. ' test random distribution dim as integer last, first, result dim as integer cycle dim as integer max, min dim as integer count, mxi, mni dim as double avg Function rnd_range (first As Double, last As Double) As Double ' from...

Re: Parser/assembler problem?

Using .90 and the code that had the fault compiles clean.

I will mark this closed.

Re: new .90 install(musl) - Linux - graphics fail? [resolved

Thank you.

It was not clear from the docs that this version could not be considered 'complete'.

I will move to the regular install.

Re: Parser/assembler problem?

(I am embarrassed by my remark about not finding uninstall instructions. dkl gently showed me the answer. And then, of course, I am further embarrassed to now find the same info on the install page at FB.net.) I will move to .90 right away and see if it is still there and get back to this thread. If...

I have a reply from dkl that he had observed the problem, and that it appears to be fixed in 0.90 I will mark this [solved] in a bit. David (I have not moved to 0.90.

Re: Parser/assembler problem?

For anyone interested: I quickly encountered the problem again in the single directory structure. I did send a zip with source and more to Daniel. I won't touch this source set until there is some clue why this happens. If someone else wants to peek at what I have - just send your email address - I ...

Re: Parser/assembler problem?

Thank you for at least veiwing my question and applying a little thought to my problem. I hope this post is not too long. The fails did not seem to be random. Typically, a blank line added after an 'end if' would clear the problem. I've been watching this for a few months. No blank line: fail. Add b...
