gfxlib2 licence

Good news:

on fbc:master :: race6e24 / (readme.txt src/gfxlib2/license.txt): (link)
(counting_pine) Change gfxlib2 license to LGPL with special exception, same as rtlib license


Has this been mentioned elsewhere? I cant find it in searching.

Re: Anti Virus Opinions Please

On a new computer with Win7 I use the Microsoft Security Essentials. It provides virus , spyware and unwanted software protection. It gets updated with system updates, it's free, reliable, has a good reputation and stays out of the way. I have used the free version of AVG for years on an older compu...

Re: Reading a Windows format ".ini" file

I thought it would be useful to have a function to do this for one of my programs, so I just made one now. It is only tested on a single example, so it may still have problems. Garvan #include "vbcompat.bi" const FALSE = 0 const TRUE = NOT FALSE '' '' File not found return -1 '' Section no...

In my sudoku solver I take a completed puzzle and remove random numbers one by one to see if it is solvable, and grade the results by degree of difficulty in solving. All valid puzzles are solvable quickly easily by brute force, so you need to program human methods to grade a puzzle. This is the sam...

I would wait 24 hours or so to see if anybody figures out what is going wrong. Then there might be a better bug report.

I quickly tested your code by putting it in a small code block, and it gave buggy results, just like you explained. I need to look at this again to see if I am missing something stupid.

Stick with BASIC, if that is the language you know, and concentrate instead on getting each individual kid to think about the maths.

You are enclosing a rectangle in a circle. This circle exists. There is a limit to the precision at which you can write down its radius in decimal format, but the circle itself exists, as does it radius. I don't understand the reasoning for restricting your integers to even numbers. A rectangle of s...
