i need a name for my include file, a logical name would be "array.bi". But then there already is "array.bi" in \fbc-int. Two files with the same name in different directories - not a very good idea i think, this is bound to lead to confusion.
So either your "array.bi" or my "array.bi" needs a different name. Following the purpose and the naming convention started with "fbc-int" (for FreeBASIC internals), you could name your "array.bi" (and maybe future files in this folder) "array-int.bi". Or i would have to make it "array-ext.bi" or something like that.
What do you think?

Why not simply calling it: arrayex.bi (ex = as in "extended") just a idea.JK wrote:Or i would have to make it "array-ext.bi" or something like that.
I've just made: "arrayinfo.bi" containing a Macro and a overloaded Sub().
(along the lines of ScreenInfo(), byref returns of the four most important
parts of the new header (As ULong))
Code: Select all
' arrayinfo.bi -- (c) 2019-09-05, MrSwiss
#Macro SetTypeArrayInfo(DataType) ' define datatype for overloaded Sub
Sub ArrayInfo OverLoad( _ ' check for dynamic array
a() As DataType, _ ' _in_ mandatory: array as defined by macro
ByRef t_mem As ULong = 0, _ ' _out_ opt. total memory (in Bytes)
ByRef e_len As ULong = 0, _ ' _out_ opt. element size (dito)
ByRef _dims As ULong = 0, _ ' _out_ opt. number of dimensions
ByRef _flag As ULong = 0 _ ' _out_ opt. flags (all as one)
Dim As FBC.FBARRAY Ptr pa = _
FBC.ArrayDescriptorPtr(a()) ' get array descriptor ptr (pa)
t_mem = CULng(pa->size) ' original is UInteger, needs type cast
e_len = CULng(pa->element_len)
_dims = CULng(pa->dimensions)
_flag = CULng(pa->flags) ' assure 32 bit's max. (as in FBC 32)
' ----- EOF -----
