Re: FreeBASIC Namespace Project

First, I have to say I love the intent of the Imortis project. It will make the total so much more accessible to programmers who ONLY use FB that it will help it live greatly. Now: AT THE MOMENT, Imortis is the largest contributor to HIS project, yet still getting more help on actual code than dkl e...

Re: console/terminal on program exit

Problem is clean/functional console/terminal on exit in Linux (Lubuntu, mostly.) My source and results are all on remote systems. Only geany and FB is local. I have a TON of libraries I link static together as needed. When I turn on debug routines, more stuff goes to console. More messed up consoles...

Re: How do I install freebasic in ubuntu xenial?

I use Lubuntu. Lots of machines at home. My install script (64 bit) just has: sudo apt-get install libtinfo-dev libxpm-dev libxrandr-dev If you are using 32 bit on 64 bit system, you will have to search in synaptic or something for the ...-dev(32) or something in the name. Even the dev lib names cha...

Re: ASC and CHR allowed values

I would suspect that decisions were made when the routines were written to allow full integer at places for speed and alignment. When CHARACTER use was clear, then the cast to ubyte. For valid character translation, somewhere a data list must store the correct characters. At that time, range on chr$...

Re: Graphics question.

see this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=24337&start=15

dkl did more work on threads since that time and it is better than it was, but his mention of some of the mechanics is noteworthy.

Re: Graphics question.

You may need to allocate a little more memory to the graphics card (in bios.) Also, the crash on exit can be many things. I have fought it many times. There are several AMD drivers for linux, not all are equal. It would take some debugging to check for the problem in your case. Changing in and out o...

re: ramdisk MUCH faster, though did not time anything (working on nanomsg as an all-inclusive solution now.) Almost all modern Linux systems have ram tmp filesystems available, though I make my own.

Re: LOCK and UNLOCK in the Wiki/Manuals

My method, also.
I use a ramdisk in a common mapped directory for the lockfile to trim the time hit a little.
Windows and Linux.

Re: Graphics question.

Graphics (and OpenGL) are more fragile in Linux than any graphics in Windows. Is the graphics chip embedded, or is it an external card? What brand? How much memory? Which Linux? How quickly does it crash? Run some print to the console before changing to graphics to be sure the program loaded and cra...

Re: Dilemma of un-paid Volunteer Community Efforts

I would probably be OK with most anyone. If they care to volunteer, they would probably care enough to listen and learn. When I was younger, I used to take over when I wasn't happy. I learned that everyone is happier doing it their own way. Even if you know it won't work, be patient, give them time ...

Dilemma of un-paid Volunteer Community Efforts

People volunteer for community-based, non-paid common efforts for many reasons. What we want to believe: Passion for the topic - "I BELIEVE! This MUST succeed. I will help!" Passion to help others - "I have a talent, you need help, I want to help those that need help." Need: &quo...
