Re: WaitTimer

Well, the RDX stuff, isn't needed at all (only EDX, in 32-bit), in 64-bit: Private Function ReadTSC() As LongInt asm RDTSC asm mov [function], rax End Function Dim As LongInt ct = ReadTSC, tt = 0 Print "Time: "; Str(ct) tt = ct + 1000 While ReadTSC < tt : Wend Print : Print "Time: &qu...

Re: fbSound for Linux x86 Win32 (wav mp3 ogg mod it xm s3m)

The issue isn't really new, it has been discussed in the past ...
In the case linked below, it's about reposting (translated) code,
from this forum and, asking for permission, to do so.
just about a year ago ...
Even that, is actually covered by copyright law (for those, not
yet aware of it).

Re: Compound conditional in IF statement

Yes, I'd actually prefer a closing statement char Well, this is BASIC, which never had such a thing. You'll have to use C or Pascal, if you're insisting on a closing statement. How about a question mark or ... No go, the question mark is a synonym for 'Print' statement, in FB. See FB-Manual, for mo...

Have a look at: HxD, the one I'm using, to figure out requirements ...
You'll probably have to use a "fixed" font, to get there.

Re: Data Analysis tools

paul doe is correct, like I've told her/him, quite some time ago, in this tread.
Especially the attitude expressed, is intresting, to say the least.
She/he obviosly wants, that others do the "coding" for her/him,
later on, claiming the code to be: my code (worst of all!).

Re: Cannot compile fbfrog

C:\Program Files (x86)\FreeBASIC \\ fbc -s console "fbfrog.bas" I've just spotted (above in red), which may give all sorts of hassles. Another thing, putting FBC in: C:\Program Files (x86)\ is, generally a bad idea. (You can't run examples, for instance ...) The availlable Installer for W...

Re: LeapYear Function (Boolean eval.)

@jj2007,

I think that, to suppress "framing" you'll have to use the "naked" key-word in the Function.

Re: Cannot find libgtksourceview-3.0.so (but is installed)

THAT WORKS! Why can FB not find the lib by default? That's done for compatibility, with different OS's. The leading "lib" and the extension .so/.dll/.a -- are always clipped off, when stating the library name, to be loaded. E.g. libmylib.dll is loaded: #inclib "mylib" Is there a...

Re: 32 to 64

@Joshy,

thanks for fixing the .bi/.dll for 64bit, great job (as always).

<off topic>
@St_W,
you've finally made it to my ignore-list. (I won't call you a foe because you lack the format for that.)
Your snotty, smart-ass comments, aren't worth reading, anyway.

Well, Windows9's drawback is: 32bit, only (not a bright future, therefore).

Re: virus?

I've also had crashes, with older versions of FBEdit, but not with:
FBEdit version: 1.0.7.6c (check: Help/About, "Title-Bar" description)

However, it was never related, to a power-outage (I only use laptop's).

Re: 32 to 64

@opicard, you've at least twice stated "Escapi Dll", which I assume to be 32bit, this then means: the "Escapi Dll" would have to be converted and re-compiled to 64bit, before anything else is looked at ... (if the source is still available). or a different library (64bit), with s...
