Re: Array Descriptor (split from Wiki Improvements)

The Array Descriptor works correctly, as of today (not so, with yesterdays build). For anybody wanting to test it, get the latest FBC 1.08.0-DEV build from: here For people who make recurring revisons from this site, do not forget to also take into account the latest version of the file "freeb...

Re: Wiki improvements

I think the page 'Constructors and Destructor' (for UDT) a little (too much) "light" (for a Programmer's Guide)! I propose to keep it as it is, by just renaming it 'Constructors and Destructors (basics)' , and complete that with a new page 'Constructors, Assignm...

Re: Wiki improvements

About my article about implementing an anti-flickering process when refreshing a graphics window (https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=26692), I think it deserves a page in the Programmer's Guide, but I do not know where. Maybe in the "Other Topics" section, after "...

Re: Wiki improvements

@Jeff,

Can you fully delete the empty page "ProPgCompoAgregInherit", because replaced by the page "ProPgCompoAggregInherit".

Thank you in advance.

Re: Wiki improvements

I read through your article on references again just now, and other than the formatting work needed to adapt to wiki, it looks like it would fit in very well. I anticipated the article formatting for the 2 Programmer's Guide pages. See here the result: - ProPgFromPtrToRef → fxm [new page created] -...

Re: Wiki improvements

But I think my question was more about substance than about form :-(

(I think the substance is more important than the form, but a good form can encourage more readers to discover the substance and vice versa)

Re: DEF FN Not Working?

FreeBASIC does not support DEF FN routines.

Re: Wiki improvements

Indeed, I got some times a correct display with "Version 1.08.0 (08-26-2019), built for win64 (64bit)", but I guess after reallocation of memory, the old location has not been allocated for anything else and therefore the characters data have not been overwritten. I completed the code to d...

Re: ERR (edited)

This list only applies to all keywords: - which can be called in a syntax form of function (in an expression), - and so called, which also return an error code. PRINT can not be called in a syntax form of function. Example of using a keyword (SCREENSYNC) as a function to return an error: Declare Sub...

Re: is that right?!

"Delete" frees the memory allocated by "New", but "to free" does not mean to reset, nor that you can not access it (fraudulently) through the value of the pointer that has retained the address of the allocation. This little code shows that "Delete" works well ...
