Well, maybe WEND would be more consistant as "END WHILE". Or maybe if "END IF" were changed to "IEND". But I think they should be left the way they are for compatibility with qbasic.

Maybe like this? array1(2 TO 5) = array2(100 TO 103) ' copy part of array By forcing the programmer to be explicit about what and how much is being copied where, the compiler doesn't have to worry about different dimmensions etc. Maybe it would be simple enough to implement if that s...

Hmmm, FB 0.13 gives this: 1 C 67 2 i 105 3 a 97 4 o 111 5 0 6 0 7 0 8 0 9 0 10 0 ...so it looks like 0.13 is respecting chr$(0) as a terminator.

I'm a Gentoo user, and I thought so at first. So I tried out different CFLAGS with gcc 3.4.3 compiling libfb and libfbgfx, and the best I could get was about a 3-8% speedup over the official binary. Oh well.

I think there are ways to set up Windows to limit what a hostile user can do (including Ctrl+Alt+Del), the way they do at most public schools and libraries.... but beyond that, I imagine MS wouldn't want to make that too easy to do programmatically - malware writers would abuse it.

Topic: What is the difference between wx-c and GTK on Linux?
Replies: 3

From the user's perspective, very very little difference. Because on Linux, wx is just a wrapper around GTK. wx-c Linux programs will be bulkier and maybe slightly slower, but they'll look and act exactly the same.
