Do any of the other examples run, like openaltest.bas ?

Are you using ALSA or OSS?

Something to do with Linux and Windows using ASCII differently No, they use ASCII exactly the same. See Jofer's post above. I'm pretty sure Linux GUIs and Windows use Latin1 or Unicode, while DOS and QB (and FB for compatibility) use ASCII which differs from Latin1 in the character numbers 128-255 ...

Actually I was thinking a flag in the header, because font data meant to be trans-PUTed probably won't look so good ALPHAd and vica-versa (sp?). But I guess having it in the syntax is more flexable - you get the full range, XOR etc.

That code assumes fbgfx_buffer is a byte ptr. Or maybe it's from before pointer addition was changed. Anyway, this should work regardless of the ptr type: w = *cptr(uShort ptr, fbgfx_buffer) shr 3 h = *(cptr(uShort ptr, fbgfx_buffer) + 1) b = *cptr(uShort ptr, fbgfx_buffe...

That's what my laptop is (only computer I use), except Athlon XP-M (mobile). I'd like to contribute, but having no money... On the GCC Backend topic, does it only output AT&T syntax code? I'm not very familiar with this whole thing, if it just organizes and optimizes or if it outputs too. No mo...

Yes. Compile the program. You'll end up with an exe file. Send this exe file to your friend and he'll be able to run it. No need to bundle the compiler.

FreeBASIC creates real, independant applications just like C.

False and False, cause noone said any of the things you list.

Wow you're right I couldn't find that anywhere. I coulda sworn lillo said something like that. I'll edit the list. Sorry about that.

OK, I'll start a list of common misconceptions here: 1. This would make Gfxlib require OpenGL, and thus make it not run well on DOS False and false . Gfxlib is designed to support multiple backends. The DOS VGA/VESA backend is already peacefully coexisting with the Windows DirectX backend and X11 Li...

If he already had a openGL library he could show us, that used all the techniques he talks about but has no proof of, then I'd be all for adding it.. Your proof: lillo is one of the developers of AllegroGL . He coded the MacOSX port. You can view the source code online here , or download the source...

Linux won't automatically open a console window. If you want to see what a program outputs, you have to open a console window and run the program inside that, like tunginobi did. Of the various console emulators xterm is the generic ugly one that virtually ALL Linux desktops are guaranteed to have -...
