Re: [Freebasic 32 vs 64]

I know all that . by default freebasic 32 generates asm code while the 64-bit version generates only C code . which explains that 32 bit programs are much faster than 64 bit ... I hope it is more precise. Maybe more precise, but your conclusion is still wrong. In general asm code is not faster than...

Re: Can't we use SHELL32 dll like USER32?

- there is no installer There is an installer for win32 (see https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbc/files/Binaries%20-%20Windows/). Some years I ago I modified the install script to create a combined win32/win64 installer, but I'm not sure whether that's needed. Personally I always download the zip a...

Re: can you spot the problem?

how did you fix it / work around it?

btw it would be nice if you could document the build process on macos like for the other OSes in our wiki. Macos is probably not ready for tge wiki yet, but when it'll be integrated in fbc's master it'd be nice to already have some docs for the wiki.

Re: VisualFBEditor - IDE for FreeBasic

If there still were any win98 users out there that would care, then probably, but I doubt there are any. So no, there hasn't been any effort put in porting FB to win98, neither by the compiler developers nor by external contributors. Afaik the currently used toolchain to compile FB for windows doesn...

Re: Compiler tests

fbc_tests.string.format.numberFormatTest is the only test known to fail on win x64, on other platforms all tests succeed. You can find test results (including console output) for windows & linux, x86 & x64 on my CI server's (=Jenkins) website, see https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=...

VCS: private repositories for free on GitHub

If you're not using any version control system (VCS) for your coding activities yet, there are lots of good reasons to start doing so (but I won't elaborate on that). I just wanted you to notify that a great service for Git hosting, GitHub, just got better: GitHub offers free private repositories no...

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.
