Re: New array features

FB doesn´t allow for an array to be returned by a function, but you can pass an array to a function and modify it in this function. Having an array descriptor you could manipulate, doesn´t mean you could return an array! Yes, I thought a couple of minutes that you changed this facts. Appart sorting...

Re: New array features

Ok, next try... array(sort, a, up, 1, 5) As usual, comments, critics, bug reports and ideas for possible improvements are welcome! Hi JK, I don't feel at ease at this point with this. Just in case you didn't already put this form away for any reasons, I would ideally return to this: array2 = array_...

Big work for all this!

If it takes long it doesn't matter since it's better to have something rather than nothing at the end :)

Re: Wiki improvements

Yes, it seems interesting as an article on FreeBasic, especially if the proposed code is multi-platform and fully written in FB. Can you output something? My idea was something like that: https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=24907&p=222768&hilit=drag#p222768 Not the same ...

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

this maxima is heavy version of wxPython..right? Hi aurelVZAB, the Maxima engine itself is something very solid. The front-end maybe is related to wxPython, so the name of wxMaxima for the version with the GUI. I don't use any other versions anyway. But you are right, wxMaxima can feel slow, and ma...

Re: Wiki improvements

I am still waiting for any article proposed by users: - either provided already written (perhaps only a final formatting to be done for a better integration with the existing articles), - or provided in the form of a list of references to posts/topics with enough material to be able, after synthesi...

Re: When will we have a new challenge :)

Hello Tourist Trap. I want to enjoy a little time to share my feelings. I am not a c developer, and coding time is a little behind me (at the professional level). But from my past experience in IT service company, I kept the taste for design. At that time, creating an index was a right click on the...

Re: Weird error messages when macros/defines in namespace

- Error: error 120 - Proposal: Expected period ('.') Ok. That makes sense. It can be confusing until we know it. For example in this case: namespace V '... end namespace '... #define V ' error 120: Expected period ('.') 'we may not see that a namespace had been defined previously Anyway, for me it'...

Re: Weird error messages when macros/defines in namespace

Everything is in the documentation: ... So your example above is preprocessed as following: namespace H end namespace ? ? H. ? H. ? Oh thanks. I thought that Namespaces were scoping things. But for that one the message doesn't make too much sense: namespace V #define V ' error 120: Expected period ...

Weird error messages when macros/defines in namespace

Hello, I really tried to figure out how we are supposed to interpret this: namespace H #define V ? #macro U V #endMacro #macro H 'error 120: Expected period ('.') in '#macro H' '... #endMacro end namespace U 'ok V 'ok H.U 'error 14: Expected identifier, found '?' in 'H.U' H.V 'error 14: Expected ide...

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

gnuplot does quite well in choosing default values like x and y range and other options to make it easy to use, what I would like to have is the plot functionality of Mathematica in a library, where you can can make a 3d-plot with a simple command like Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2],{x,-3,3}, {y,-2,2}] I use ...

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

my only complaint is that you can't just embed the functionality into a FB program, if only there were a static library that one could use in ones programs. Scilab has good capabilities for being controled from the command line it seems. Maybe worth a try. I wonder if we could get XCAS do (and retu...

Re: New array features

Example: ARRAY_SORT or ARRAY.SORT (a namespace is excellent for isolating keywords) (arrayvar) -> sort everything ascending (arrayvar, down) -> sort everything descending (arrayvar, up, 4, 7) -> sort 7 elements ascending, starting at element 4 (arrayvar, @customsortproc, 5) -> sort using a customso...
