Re: Integers print with leading space?

We get a leading space with signed integers, but not unsigned integers.

Re: download Windows 10 for restore

rsync is similar to Microsoft's SyncToy which I use to keep a backup of both my PowerBASIC and FreeBASIC development folders. PowerBASIC is on my SSD C: and that gets backed up to an internal 1TB HDD. FreeBASIC is on the internal 1TB HDD and that gets backed up to the external SSD where the ToDo bac...

Re: download Windows 10 for restore

I am not a fan of IObit products in general but their Driver Booster is very good and is cited as the best in many reviews. It backs up current drivers before installing updates, so we can 'roll back' but I have never had to do that in all the years that I have used it. Malwarebytes and IObit had a ...

Re: download Windows 10 for restore

I suppose we could but my system is woken up every morning at 04:00 and a full system backup done. If anything untoward occurs I just power down, put in a flash drive and boot. The last backup is got from an external SSD, and I am back at the desktop in no time. I also run Driver Booster now and the...

Re: Encrypternet on the Web

Someone contacted me the other day and referred to my Seattle scenario on the website and asked what other uses Encrypternet may have. Well, a lot of folks are now working from home nowadays rather than an office. We could have, say, a dozen employees working from home and live hundreds of miles fro...

Re: Encrypternet on the Web

If we click on the deltarho icon at the bottom left of the Encrypternet form we see "Special thanks to José Roca (WinFBX Framework)". If we Google 'WinFBX' the first entry is 'GitHub - JoseRoca/WinFBX: Windows Framework for FreeBASIC'. Not everyone will do that but it is the sort of thing ...

No. I didn't have a particular reason for not doing so nor with Encrypternet.

The language used for an application published on the web is not normally mentioned.

If anyone contacted me and asked what I used I would be happy to tell them.

Encrypternet on the Web

There have been some changes to the version developed here and much of the Help file has been rewritten. There are two versions: 32-bit and 64-bit. The 64-bit version is a little faster on decryption. I have held off changing the 'engine' but did so making the random 'password' generation more effic...

Re: Alternative for Randomize Timer

but is it really necessary to have good randomness of the seed? I decided to search the Internet for confirmation of my response and found a consensus of comments to the contrary saying that a random seed is not necessary - uniqueness is though. Using a cryptographic seed is OK as it satisfies the ...

Re: Code size

Hi jj. I also looked at gcc using -Wc -O3. Your post has had 64 views but no response. I wonder if others are struggling as I am in that the knowledge gained by your code has little, if any use, in practice. I am reminded of the last few lines of the opening to 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' by Oscar ...

Re: how can you separate this string please

And I know you will all be splitting your sides chuckling at my tribulations. I'm not. Anyway, great excuse for a brand new box from Ebay. With a system backup, you would not have to do that. These are my backups, on an external SSD. I use a slight compression on a full backup in the early hours of...

Re: PCG32II Help file

Very minor update. If we do not use GetSnapShot before using a SetSnapShot then we will not get a sequence repeat. Fairly obvious really but although we can invoke GetSnapShot at any point in our code it will probably be used before we start to request any random numbers so that we can return to the...

Re: Alternative for Randomize Timer

but is it really necessary to have good randomness of the seed? I imagine the period of a PRNG to be a circle comprising a sequence. Randomize n, where n is fixed, gives us one entry point to the circle and the random numbers generated will be the same for each invocation of Randomize n. n as a var...
