Re: documentation epub format or (odt)

If you search from keywords on the web, you will easily find free converters (eg from chm to epub). For example: https://www.freefileconvert.com/chm-epub (be a little patient to wait for the result) I tested with the largest CHM I could find (a 14MB, 25000 lemma FPC helpfile), and the conversion to...

Maybe the antivirus keeps a lock on the generated exe. Try excluding related directories from the antivirus

Re: Quadra decimal

How about it? How would it be useful?

(and then I assume relative to simple library implementations like bit packed records like struct { int quadra:4})

Re: Advantages of different GUI libraries

I miss QT. Together with Winapi and GTK I'd say those are the major options.

Re: Let us talk about memory layout of classes Microsost C++ vs gnu g++ vs FreeBASIC !

I've no clue of C++ vtable layout, but if vtable[0] is not a method, it might also be a pointer to some other descriptor table (like for multiple inheritance or RTTI).

Re: Let us talk about memory layout of classes Microsost C++ vs gnu g++ vs FreeBASIC !

I don't see the constructor declared as virtual, so why would it be in the vtable? Are constructors always virtual by default?

Re: fb 1.07 tests

Debug info by default. strip can be always done afterwards on release.

Unstripping is hard :-)

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

Octave ( the open source matlab compatible) is also quite usable. During a research period, I hooked up a bunch of batchfiles, .m scripts and some pascal code (*) to script together processing incoming data and make plots. I think I originally mostly started it, because I found a bunch of matlab ff...

Re: gpp 9.10 upgrade strange error compilation

The errors is in .s files, so to me it looks like an assembler problem. So either also upgrade you binutils, or FB generates something that results in assembler that would not be generated by just C code.

Re: Wiki improvements

Oops, I missed a step. %% tags with the html escaping only work for chm. I think I'd like to get rid of the html escaping and look at improving the fbdoc (wiki-> chm converter). Even though fbdoc doesn't know unicode, the wiki's UTF8 should be preserved through most of the string manipulations. Pro...
