Re: String index doc

Flyzone and badidea felt the page could be improved. They or others could offer a better opinion than I. I never had a problem with the [ ] usage or the relavent current docs. Generally, I am far too technical about English usage than most. Otherwise, I would volunteer to help with the docs. I only ...

Re: Moderators, FB community

I am happy that many aired their opinions either way.
This arrogant parasite is pleased to call this and any other incident closed.

Re: String index doc

@jj2007: A novice needs crystal clear examples, abstract explanations will not be understood. Sometimes you need both, or the explanation just isn't complete. And that last part makes assumptions that are not valid. Simple first, then clarification after. Several other keywords have that pattern. Le...

Re: Moderators, FB community

I don't want anybody banned. I don't want fxm to stop writing docs. I would LIKE that he show compassion for a beginner that has no experience. Write a VERY simple example. A more complex one after that is OK. As for the lock and deletions: Still no expression of regret. That implies he thinks what ...

Re: String index doc

I have no problems with a locked thread. I do when it happens so fast it is locked in one day before many get to even notice it is there. Personally, I already said I think the doc is fine. No, I am not supporting the migration of FB to c/c++. But that is not happening. The devs make choices. Someti...

Re: Moderators, FB community

If it happened to you, wouldn't an apology go far to help you be patient and try to understand the other person? A lockout means the other person's voice does not have enough merit to allow them to speak. Do you know that much, are that certain, that what you think you are hearing is the issue? The ...

Re: Moderators, FB community

Your continuing ego and arrogance displayed to everyone was the first insult. If you say one more time "multicore cpu required for threading" I think I will shoot myself. If you write another example for a simple keyword that requires a beginner to look up and understand threading and mute...

Re: String index doc

jj2007: again - if the other languages are so much better, if you don't like FB, why are you here? This should be a discussion about the docs. The programming of the syntax is what it is. The docs as they were was not so bad. An addition that basically a pointer is passed around would help some othe...

Re: Moderators, FB community

Why? Because you realized it was wrong? Because you got caught? Must have been because you got caught: I see no apologies to anyone. You don't like me, that's OK. I called you out, but it was the another posters' thread that got locked. What an ego! I'm still asking the community and other moderator...

Moderators, FB community

Is it OK for a moderator to just delete a negative post by someone without comment?
It was intended to be an independent comment, not particularly related to the referenced post thread.

That just happened to me.

re: String Index Doc: wtf!

Lock the topic when YOU don't want to discuss it anymore? So quick! The clearest example of Code Police! (Though I agree with you, fxm. It is very valuable as a REFERENCE - used to extract and change - and that is what the [] symbols are used for in FB. The fact that it is a pointer to a <type> shou...

Re: is redim inside threads safe? ( memory leak help :O, ) (SOLVED)

This is a good catch. Almost not really intuitive.

fxm, a note in the docs would be helpful, please?

Re: How to modularize code

Let's NOT let the argument begin.

This is Programming Beginners -- about FreeBASIC, not assembly.

The objective is to help someone with FB code, not sell that you *may* know something about some other language.
If that other language is that much better, go there and stay there.

Re: What does this mean?

I would not be surprised that this is an effort to break existing code so that old happy customers need to go back to Oracle to have their programs 'fixed' or have everyone buy new versions of what they supply. ATT used to regularly change the interface requirements for their high-speed toll switche...
