Re: How to work with Excel and Word documents

It would depend what exactly you want to work with excel. For only a few tables it is maybe easier to transform them into FB arrays. With gtk or other gui you can create gridboxes.

Re: Tutorials?

It all depends on the reason why you are programming. If your intention is to bring a light in the darkness for the lost souls, then it is devotional service for god. If not it is nothing but a waste of time.

Re: Tutorials?

The code only makes sense if you understand the algorithm and math being used. Disagree. Do you think i could calculate any planetary orbit myself with paper and pencil? No way. It is extremely difficult because the planetary orbits are not only ellipses, they are influencing each other, and all to...

Re: Tutorials?

If you read a classical tutorial, there are example lines, and mostly example programs included. A experienced programmer already knows the typical elements of a program, it is just to find the right syntax in this piece of software he is working on. So he can save some time with modifying existing ...

Re: Next generation name is FB++ ?

Why not FreeBASIC², like Profan² did.

Could start with FreeBASIC⁰, then FreeBASIC¹ and FreeBASIC².

Next version then, with more 3D, could be FreeBASIC³.

Then it becomes difficult because keyboard has no ⁴, ⁵, ⁶, ⁷, ⁸, ⁹, ⁴⁵, ⁶⁷, ⁷⁵⁸⁴ and so on...

In german language there are lot of tutorials, examples and projects here:

Re: Need new gfxlib driver for Windows 7, 8, 10

You cant expect the gfxlib becomes rewritten only for XenialPup which is a minimal distro intended for outdated hardware ( > 1 GHZ processor and 768 MB ram).

Re: Next generation name is FB++ ?

Just normal that a developer wants to develop his programming language further. The original basic BASIC philosophy was " B eginner’s A ll-purpose S ymbolic I nstruction C ode". OOP was not planned. Today we have some OOP extensions, who wants to use them can do it. Who dont want it can le...

Re: Best Distro for FB

Had this problem in Manjaro, too. Thats why i have

Code: Select all

 sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libncursesw.so.6.1 /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.5


in above script. It is for a problem in Geany, as far i remember, but it will also appear in others.

In Mint Xfce and Cinnamon it is not.

Basically you can write all kind of such equations directly in FreeBASIC code, fully described here:
