Re: OpenSSL? Making an e-mail client

Thanks, guys. Well... I really want to build my own. I would like to have total control of how it looks, so I wouldn't want to use a widget and I wouldn't want to make a mod for an existing one because I like programming. There are several e-mail clients that I like enough and are acceptable for me....

Release date metacommand?

Not sure if something like this already exists, so I am either asking if there's something to do this or otherwise, I'm making a feature suggestion. The thing is, it would be very useful if there were a metacommand or pre-processor macro that would return a string containing the date (and maybe the ...

Re: OpenSSL? Making an e-mail client

Hi! Thank you! This looks good. But this is C++ based, right. Is there more or less the same thing in C (non-OOP)? Anyway, this gives me a good place to start reading. Just for couriosity, which features do you miss in existing solutions? I want to do this mainly to acquire the knowledge and become ...

OpenSSL? Making an e-mail client

Hi! I would like to write my own e-mail client in FreeBasic. I've been reading and found that POP3, IMAP and SMTP seem to be pretty straightforward. If not encrypted, it's easy to do via Telnet, which, if I understand correctly, from a programmer's view, is simply sending the data packets via TCP ju...

ImageInfo parameter type mismatch in 32 bit. Not a bug

Hi! I can't be completely sure of what exactly is going on, as I've been compiling my programs on a 64 bit Linux only, but other people compiling my source are reporting an issue that I did have some time ago, when I was using a 32 bit Linux. It appears that while ImageInfo is documented as having a...

Re: WTF Inkey???

Oh! Your original post brings me memories! I remember when I had that same problem when I started with QuickBasic back then. You'll discover many similar things with time. There's tons of these! Back then, I didn't have a forum where I could ask questions so I kept trying things for a couple of days...

Re: Read and write clipboard (Linux and Windows)

I found what I was doing wrong. Yes, I was sure your code was perfectly fine and that I had done something wrong, but I didn't imagine my mistake was so, so stupid. I was using "#ifdef __FB_WINDOWS__" instead of "#ifdef __FB_WIN32__", so of course, nothing would happen. In the ca...

Re: Read and write clipboard (Linux and Windows)

Congratulations. You now have a third party library in your project that [...] To this comment, the only adequate reply I could make is not allowed or correct in this forum, I suppose. To the folks discussing about whether the Windows API should be considered a "third-party library", I pr...

Re: Read and write clipboard (Linux and Windows)

Thank you so much! Yes, I've seen that, indeed, according to this source, it's super simple to implement clipboard read and write for text, which would be enough for FB, I think. In GNU/Linux X11, I managed to more or less easily read the clipboard. Writing to the clipboard is more complicated becau...

Re: Read and write clipboard (Linux and Windows)

Thanks.... but it really is a shame that people have gotten used to immediately rely on third-party software as soon as a difficulty comes up. In the end, this results in nobody really knowing how things work and possibly thousands of projects having a bug because it's in the library. In this case, ...

Read and write clipboard (Linux and Windows)

I've been having problems with this for a long time. I remember in the past, I managed to read and write the Windows clipboard and recently, I've been able to read, but not write, X clipboard in GNU/Linux. I find examples online, but they are not at all easy to translate to FreeBasic. What I need is...

Re: Tetris, but with hexagons

Hey! This looks super neat! I love this idea! In my opinion, you shouldn't allow for moving up-left or up-right, since this would make it possible to keep a piece floating indefinitely, but if you can find a very imaginative way of allowing it without this happening, it could be interesting. In my m...
