Bye, bye, until the time, you've learned 64 bit ASM ... (or use FB instead).

Re: Array Descriptor (split from Wiki Improvements)

.. the final decision is up to the developer (Jeff).
That is obvious ...
The remainder I consider another "side tracking attempt".
You do everything, to avoid answering "the real question(s)".

Re: Array Descriptor (split from Wiki Improvements)

Why do you always feel the need, to state the obvious?
(wanting the "last word" or something else?)

Re: Array Descriptor (split from Wiki Improvements)

Whether there are pointers or not is irrelevant, when "bitfield" is the issue.
The compiler takes care of eventually needed "padding".

Re: Is it possible to Hello world on a server

7 = all rights
can't remember the other (numerical) details ... except ordering:
user -- group -- world
I think that world needs: read/execute (nothing else)
Reason user is usually: "anonymous" (the user with a browser, accessing web-server)

Re: Array Descriptor (split from Wiki Improvements)

I hope this will be an Integer (32/64 bits) like all other fields, so 32 bits useful? No, no, no --> anyting but Integer, in structs we should only consider fixed size variables as DWORD (aka: ULong). Otherwise, the struct-size is different, in the 32/64 compilers (a really bad idea, me thinks). Ad...

chmod (in 'ix systems, is: access control change) and: +x (means: add execute rights)
The same as: attr (command, in WIN/DOS)
This is OS stuff ... (nothing to do with programming itself)

Re: FreeBasic communication with Arduino logic error?

Anyway, I removed any communication back from the Arduino, and the lag has pretty much gone away. Have you tried with higher baudrate settings? (I never go below 19200, minimum) I've run my *very old Arduino* (pre Ono model) at speeds up to (and including) 115200 baud. The real HW communication is ...

Okay, first try FBC 64 results:

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

So, a function of the command shell in a 64 bit system can only handle 32 bit files. Strange? Well, I can't find "nm" in command-shell (cmd.exe) nor in C:\Windows\System32\... Seems to be a external utility ... (which can't be related directly to the shell itself). If you are running Linu...

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

@dodicat,

seems to knock out the barrels bottom:
FBC 64 -gen gcc (no optimizer) = 1.25 Seconds
FBC 64 -gen gcc (-O 2) = 0.65 Seconds

Win10, pro, 64
CPU i7 (7th gen. ultra low power) 2 cores (4 threads) base speed: 2.9 GHz (variable)
