Re: Redim suggested additional example

@fxm, thanks for picking that up! The last point in the ReDim notes talks about the use of Redim (resizing) with a complex expression, yet there is no example of resizing using a complex expression.

It wasnt clear to me that Dir needs to be invoked multiple times to get a list of files in a dir (i now get it). Could some additional explanatory text be added at the start of the Description for Dir() ...

Re: ld.exe: cannot find -lpq (having trouble getting started using postgresql library)

If you want to know details about a filetype, a good start is running the *nix/mingw command "file" on them. My bet is that the msvc libs show "omf" as filetype, while the mingw derived (*.a) files are (pe)coff. thanks for that! as mingw did not have a file.exe equivalent I trie...

Re: FbEdit

hi guys! i was reading though random changes in rev 81 to rev 82 and i noticed a possible minor readability issue
- in /Code/FBEdit/Src/Make.bas, line 226, looks like while changing the startupinfo var to sui, an extra indent tab was removed from the nested If statement which affects readability

Hello andykmv, subwcrev.exe is used to query your workingcopy's revision. It doesnt query repository. So if you checkout a jurassic version, the appropriate revision number is shown in your resulting about box. If you are making changes to this workingcopy, and do not commit, a 'Modified'-Flag is s...

Finding out where and how that text is set/displayed and how to change it could be a first (and probably quit...
