DOS386, i meant target only. i don't really care what machine i'd be doing the programming on. you are right though, the 64 KB segment limit would pose major issues. another example of the type of software i like to write is the HTTP/SOCKS4a proxy i wrote in QB71 over the last couple days... i have ...

chances of 16-bit compiler?

i know this isn't overly practical these days, but would there be interest from the developers or users for a 16-bit DOS (and maybe Windows 3.x) version of the FreeBASIC compiler? not sure how hard it would be to modify the compiler to handle this. i think it could be extremely useful for low-powere...

the only reason i didn't is that it's not really any sort of IRC-specific thing.

porting quickbasic NTCPDRV interface code to winsock

i am looking into porting my DOS IRC server code to win32 and of course modify the TCP handling routines to work with winsock. i've had plenty of experience with socket apps in VB5 and VB6, but never gotten into it with freebasic. what would be the best/easiest way of going about this? keep in mind,...

you can always use the PDS command line compiler and use overlays which can let you have an exe up to 16 megs in zize using 64 overlays of a max of 256kb each. :). I wrote a tutorial on that once, but I don't think I published it anywhere because around that time na_th_an had one about it that aler...

FB programs will not run on anything below a 386.... i know, i am writing this in QB 7.1 which works on pre-386 boxes. but i was going to port it to freebasic and make versions for windows and linux. i might just use the DOS compiler to make a more efficient piece of software than what QB spits out...

i've written some rudimentary multitasking code for QB 4.5, i'm not sure if it would work in FB. basically you need to load code into memory for each program, but here comes the tricky part... you gotta map virtual memory for each app so that they don't see each other. not only that, but you need to...

what would really be cool, is if i taped together 2 camcorders and took some video then converted that to a BMP image sequence then modding the code to make a 3D video :)

then i could put all the new BMPs back into one AVI file.
