Re: FreeBASIC Discussion December 2017

Hi, I have been using FreeBASIC for years. FreeBASIC is one of the best BASIC compilers ever. Compatible, portable, open source and free. Fast compiling and smooth running. Easy to learn and fits for every age. Abilities to use old libraries and / or source codes. Easy to translate from/to other lan...

Re: Currently inactive

I don't understand what you're suggesting. There already is an emscripten port of FB; no need to rewrite anything or switch to an interpreter. (Emscripten has a builtin interpreter to allow async processing) I mean we need an freebasic interpreter for portable usage, such as html5 and/or ARM/andori...

Re: Currently inactive

Easy to port<>portable.
Why not consider a script interpreter system under html5 with javascript or node?
Maybe we can extend fbrt to a nodejs addin, and use fbgfx2 emcripten to form GUI.
But that'll be a big project, and not so easy.
Many will come to fb if she has android/iOS ports.

Re: Currently inactive

Sad to hear that after long time waiting.
Thanks for the great works, FreeBASIC team.
FreeBASIC has been good, yet lacks supports for modern mobile systems.
Look forward to new progress.

Re: Freebasic to everything

Hello again. Kotlin has become an official android programming language at Google I/O 2017. How about FreeBasic's next step? Compiling to LLVM has been good, how about more choices? Kotlin is similar to Swift and BASIC, with new features. As FreeBASIC supports a collection of BASIC languages, why no...

Re: What can't be written in FreeBASIC?

There're things can't be written in FreeBASIC, at present. Those things will be less, and more will appear. VR, Robots, etc. many things driven by even Go lang. But FreeBASIC is too **free** to be accepted by huge companies e.g. google. So it'll be far and difficult to see everything written in Free...

Re: Do you mind if ignoring ";"?

You can already do that: http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=203981#p203981 Thanks for the url. Yes I knew that can be done for long. And I found a "void" bug when cross compiling long time ago, which has been fixed. I meant if we can do this: int i,j; --> dim as integer i,j(;)...

Re: Do you mind if ignoring ";"?

Seems simple. c programmers often are used to add a ";" in the end of a line, basics' not. Just ignore the ";" ending a line, except the line begins with "print" or "?". Then it'll be more easy for us to translate c to basic, and basic to c. If you like classi...

I just want to use the c and/or other libs along with freebasic instead of reinventing them, am I silly?
