Re: Useful defines

Hi Rick - haven't seen you for a while. Been traveling, tying fishing flies, and of course, fishing. I'll be up in Alaska in Aug chasing those pretty arctic grayling with my son. Now, I'm a bit behind on my FB efforts. We'll get cCalendar done with the addition of an IANA based time zone class and ...

Re: Calendar Calculations Class for Windows

The next logical step with the cCalendar class is to add time zone support using the IANA source at https://www.iana.org/time-zones . I'm thinking of having the parser I am working on emit DATA statements that can be pulled into a class via includes. Updates would be just downloading the latest IANA...

Re: A question of efficiency

I spend most of my time in SQL world and 'CAST' is frequently in my vernacular. I have functions that are common and called by many other functions that accept byval DOUBLE values. I have determined that this class spends about 45% of its time in these common functions and was looking for ways to tw...

A question of efficiency

If I have a function:

myFunc (byval a as double) as double

Is it faster to call myFunc(1.0) vs myFunc(1) and avoid a casting to double?

Re: Calendar Calculations Class for Windows

There were still parameters without an explicit BYVAL/BYREF and there were mixed operands not supported by version 1.05 (fixed in version 1.06) which have been addressed via CLNG. Compiled with 32/64 FB versions 1.05 and 1.06. I also noted I labeled the class as for WIndows. Since I only develop for...
