Re: GCC compile delay on large projects?

My somewhat bigger projects assemble at more than 10k lines per second, on an old Core i5. You must be mad waiting 2 minutes for a compile...

Re: RGB and RGBA

Intel Core i5: With Gas, no difference With Gcc32, ulong is 5% slower With Gcc64, ulong is 30% slower But I wonder what you are measuring here... t=timer for x as long=0 to w-1 for y as long=0 to h-1 pd=point(x,y) next next t2=timer accd+=(t2-t) t=timer for x as long=0 to w-1 for y as long=0 to h-1 ...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

It took nearly ten years for the logic choice, lazarus, to become the actual default choice for users What is Lazarus? The problem is that the console vs gui is not a black-white difference. Even on Windows GUI apps can open consoles. Yes. Most of my GUI apps use -subsystem:console until they have ...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

It was always fb's intent to work on multiple platforms. So, yes, if interested in a particular target only, this looks like madness. This is indeed a challenge, I understand that. Windows is difficult enough, Linux with its multiple flavours must be worse (I've never tried "it" seriously...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I can't figure out your objective presenting it this way. Jeff, I do not have any stakes here. I have my own Basic dialect, definitely not meant for public use (it's assembler), and I don't need FB. But I have a lot of sympathy for FreeBasic. There is a lot of goodwill here, and a lot of enthusiasm...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

Misquoted or not, Dykstra's comments means no BASIC will ever be a language taught in mainstream education, however powerful it is, unless a VERY complete package can be brought to the table. I love misquoting Dykstra's comment using C++ instead of Basic. IMHO FB's problem is not that it's BASIC bu...

Re: YouTube increases FreeBASIC performance

Certain browsers allow YouTube to set the internal resolution of the timer to a lower value, as discussed here . See also this FB thread : jj: some applications, notably Firefox, have the bad habit to set 1 ms resolution when playing videos on YouTube etc, and that's a system-wide setting dodicat: G...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

Funny! Are you sure you googled for "asynchronous primitives?" Yes. I even corrected your spelling error - but I used quotes, i.e. I did a phrase search using "intrinsic asynchronous primitives" Those that need those things are already using them in other languages, and have no ...

No results found for "intrinsic asynchronous primitives"

Are you sure a BASIC dialect needs a C/C++ feature that is unknown to Google?

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

The issues raised are all beyond me and my needs. Hi Dinosaur, Your rant is perfectly understandable. What I am more worried about, however, is that FB goes into the direction of a BASIC caricature of C++. Nonetheless, keep in mind that this thread is about the development of the next FB version, s...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

Real FORs only evaluate the bounds once to calculate a number of iterations Right, with my own FOR...NEXT construct I do that for integers, singles and doubles alike. It's by far the simplest and fastest solution. In particular, with non-integer counters you save a float-to-float comparison, which ...

Re: Controlling the window size of a compiled program?

In essence they would be tweaking the system registry each time to run a console program, which is a bit heavy IMHO Not that heavy, actually. But today I tinkered with a console application that should save its settings to something like HKCU\Console\C:_SomeFolder_SomeApp.exe, and guess what? It do...

Re: freebasic on win32s

Hi MySoft, that's a great project! I am still running a big 16-bit application that uses lots of 32-bit stuff through thunking, it runs fine in XP but I doubt it would run in a Win 3.1 plus Win32s environment. May I ask what is your motivation to do this? Even finding the hardware must be non-trivia...
