Re: VisualFBEditor - IDE for FreeBasic

IMHO it's totally fine as-is and the usage of OOP concepts improves usability and code quality. MySoft has always hated everything that uses OOP for no obvious reason ("it's slower"/inefficient, but that isn't a valid argument IMHO) and thus I wouln't put too much weight on his suggestions...

Re: Compiler tests

instead of setting up everything for a working environment yourself i recommend to use msys2 https://www.msys2.org/ or similar preconfigured environments.

Re: xcgui-2.3.3 win32

Thanks srvaldez. That makes this thing a bit less interesting. So in short for the free version it prohibits commercial use and requires to refer to their website and post a screenshot of the application on their forums (which could be hard because it's also in chinese) (if I understood that transla...

Re: xcgui-2.3.3 win32

Is there any information on the license of that library? Unfortunately I'm quite lost on that webpage as it's all in Chinese.

Re: fbfrog header translator

You do not need to know the internal structure of mecab_t, all you get is a pointer to that structure. The library deals with that structure internally, but you shouldn't tamper with it and therefore the structure itself isn't made visible through the definition in the header. You can consider mecab...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

I saw that meanwhile also more common distros like Fedora offer aarch64 builds for the RPI. I'll try one of these when I have some time. My RPi has only KODI (media center application) installed is just lying around most of the time.

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

for the RPiv3 i wish ARMv8 support where nice. but ARMv7 are good for now to test it on a ARM SoC. Unfortunately software support for ARMv8 on RPI is quite bad, for example there's no ARMv8 version of Raspbian, the official distro for the RPI. I once built a aarch64 (=armv8) but never could test it...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

For OpenBSD there is an inofficial FreeBasic package. Maybe the package maintainer could be notified when the release is finished. Should be only a matter of changing the download URL in the ports file to the latest FB sources ZIP file. http://openports.se/lang/freebasic For FreeBSD maybe my old not...

Re: Fireworks v0.5 build 2019-01-01 beta

Ideally the animation speed should be independent from the framerate. For example on my Ubuntu system I just get 18fps and the sleep (1,1) is just fine.

Re: New IDE is comming a way...testing right now

Delphi 7?

Although it would probably be more wise to put the IDE creation effort into a single (or a few at max) project I'm looking forward to try out yet another FB IDE :-)

Re: Get (File I/O) issue

I was just pointing out the fact that the "amount" parameter accepts a 'ULong' but the 'bytesread' parameter does not. At least in the Win64. That is because "bytesread" is defined as "byref", so the argument size has to match. If you pass a ULong to "amount"...

Re: Nominations for Forum Moderators

Thanks for all the nominations. I was watching this thread closely during the previous week and for me it was fine having only a single candidate. Also being unsure whether I can actually spend the amount of time that is actually needed for excercising the moderator role appropriately, I decided to ...

Re: Can we have __FB_WIN32__ and __FB_64BIT__ at the same time? [solved]

The term "win32" in __FB_WIN32__ refers to the Win32 API as provided by the Win32 and WOW64 subsystems of the Windows operating system. Although there are other subsystems and APIs (for example you can run native Linux applications using the POSIX API on Windows if you install WSL) Win32 i...
