Using Python as a database (in-memory and on disk) package

Python (=an interpreted language) comes with some handy container data structures that can be written to disk and read back again later. This allows for the creation of an in-memory database that can be saved to disk (and read back from disk to memory). Python comes with a C interface that a FreeBAS...

Re: FreeBASIC 64bit Compiler

There is no x64 back end for FreeBASIC. The instruction set used by x64 is the same as that for x86. So as far as changing things go there might be little that need to be done. One thing that has changed (a lot) is the passing of parameters. C code (gcc,linux) uses 6 registers to pass arguments alon...

Re: A lexical analyzer generator for FreeBASIC

I've taken a closer look at the generated code and found something interesting. Whenever a transition can only lead to one target state ( which is a final state without outgoing edges) four statements get executed --> A new state number is assigned to the current state. --> The current character is ...

Re: A lexical analyzer generator for FreeBASIC

I have fixed the bug that prevented poodle from generating code. Removing the ? from the regular expression was enough to get the code running. The regex on line 38 now reads: match = re.match(r"(^([ \t]*))\$([a-zA-Z0-9_]+)", line) I just dropped the ? from the regular expression. I figure...

Re: mingw libraries at opensuse (sticky request)

Apologies for the very late reply. The unpacker I use (os: win7\64bit) is peazip. When you open the package it's got a .cpio extension. On the subject of line endings: I use programmer's notepad. I insert line endings myself as programmer's notepad does not do that for you. It simply wraps after 134...

Re: A lexical analyzer generator for FreeBASIC

Just to clarify the import scintilla in my Python code. I am using Programmer's Notepad. And Programmer's Notepad uses scintilla. About Geany: you can write a Lua script (using the geanylua plugin) that accesses scintilla. geanylua also comes with some gui support (you can create a dialog using Lua ...

Re: A lexical analyzer generator for FreeBASIC

I have tried your package with a set of regular expressions that represent a large subset of the C preprocessing tokens. String/char literals are kinda hard to express as regular expressions as the content of a string literal can be any of ASCII, utf8, utf16, utf32 or wchar_t. The prefix of a string...

Re: h_2_bi.bas, a tool for translating .h files into .bi

In 2011 a new version of the C standard, C11, was released. And gcc has implemented most of the changes from C11. As h2bi translates C header files to fb header files the new standard could have an impact on h2bi. I've looked at the new standard to see whether it contains things h2bi should be able ...

Re: A lexical analyzer generator for FreeBASIC

What a wonderful answer, Jofers. I'm a bit 'flabbergasted' (really). I am installing python 2.7 (I had 2.6 installed) as I write this ( (done :) ) and I will test your tool. I have written a very bad C scanner myself using Python (I used python as the editor I use comes with python scripting). I use...

Re: A lexical analyzer generator for FreeBASIC

A couple of questions/remarks. First one: what does the version number 0.5alpha? Does the alpha mean 'it does not work' or does the alpha mean 'it works but I need to test a bit more to make sure it works well'. Secondly: why Python? Why not everything in FreeBASIC? I have experimented with tools li...

mingw libraries at opensuse (sticky request)

I think it was TJF that once upon a time showed me that I could get win32 cross compiled binaries from an opensuse repository. As this repository contains quite a few usable libraries I think it might be a good idea to sticky a link to the repository. What is on offer are --> binary versions of libr...

Re: Replacing select case with binary search (many large ran

When I first examined the code, and considered the large number of conditionals and the resulting code size, I suspected that caching effects were going to kill its performance. To my surprise, at least for gen gas and running on my old systems, your binary search code outperforms a function that g...

Re: FB manual for Devhelp (LINUX)

Thanks for the code, TJF. I have added an index to the epub that works with the calibre viewer. I'm going to extend the index a bit so it looks (almost) like the one you get with the official compiled html file. After extending the index I'll release the epub 'officially' (put it up for download in ...
