Re: RGB and RGBA

The issue had nothing to do with speed, just that the different return variable byte size **in function** required changes to code moving between 64 bit and 32 bit. This matters when I move from one architecture to another: I had to make changes when I moved working code from my usual 64 bit dev sys...

Re: Threadsafe RANDOMIZE and RND

For both of you: re: '... lack of interest ...' Look at the view count for these randomness topics. When your topic stays in single digits for a long time, people don't care. A LOT of people care. I do. I'm simply not qualified to contribute. I HAVE folded some of your faster rnd routines into my co...

Re: What is a good IDE for Freebasic on Linux?

Love geany. Small, fast, simple. I ALWAYS start with a file where I want with the name I want. (Of course, I have scripts that open from 3 to 80 files at once on 8 desktops. Learning to script is like discovering that pizza can be made to your custom tastes AND delivered to your door!) I also use a ...

Excellent.
Enough of the nasty details are revealed to let a beginner know that his key input isn't as simple as it may seem to be.

Re: How to add an FB program to startup application (SOLVED)

Don't forget:

If a program opens a console/window - it will close on PROGRAM completion unless you cause it to pause with a sleep or some other holding loop: it may happen too quick for you to see the results.

If it is still not operating as you desire or think it should, let us know.

Re: How to add an FB program to startup application

You told us two instances of how you tried: excellent. It is then assumed you want the app to run under your login as the app user. Each flavor of Linux has many multiple ways to start an app automatically. Each desktop also has multiple methods of starting an app. Becuase things change so rapidly, ...

Re: "speedfixer"

I had erased my original message (and then asked that the thread by removed by moderators: I didn't want to offend you or draw you out.) Original now referenced by LZ.

I was quoting a post of yours where you used the phrase 'swan song' and hoped it had no dire meaning.

WINDOWTITLE()

If this function is not called before setting a new windowed mode via Screen (Graphics), the program window will use the executable file name (without the extension) as title by default. This appears to not be true, at least for what I have seen. I think this has been true for some time - I just no...

Re: multithread detection

Surely, when restarting from the top, SOMETHING is changed to indicate whatever triggered the change. If that is a one-flag-only process or anything like that, the deficiencies are obvious. I doubt that is the case. Same with cmdline: it seems it is quirky in requiring an order of parameters at time...

Re: multithread detection

@caseih: you are correct I compile each function two times: once with and once without '-mt' to create my object files for later static linking. I have one threaded, one non-threaded object directory. (Actually, several more *pairs* of directories, one pair for each different architecture: four pair...

multithread detection

What are the triggers that cause multithreading detection and library usage? When is this detection happening? It seems any FB multithread keyword I use is consumed in pre-compiled object libraries for static linking. My main app code calls these pre-compiled functions of mine so the compiler now mi...

Re: Wiki improvements

Thank you for the added references. Event Catching -- sounds too much like a more generalized topic relating to catching/handling an event. Yeah, but this *specific* event (FB EVENT structure) is handed to us by the language - not the same. Probably something more like 'FreeBASIC EVENT handling' wou...
