Re: Sample programs

It is a strange phenomenon that newcomers to FreeBASIC, on arriving at the swimming pool, have a tendency to jump into the deep end. I did and I got involved in stuff which I am not entirely comfortable with now one year after joining. <smile> It does not help when the first folder in the examples f...

Re: WinFBE FreeBASIC Editor for Windows (Updated September 27, 2017)

Is the compiler choking on the statement length? ( I meant editor not compiler )

Introduce a continuation character somewhere in the middle of S and try the edit again.

Re: 3D Sine Wave [Windows only]

@UEZ

Dump all the labels and replace with local/temporary labels that we discussed the other day. -02 to -0fast gives me an increase in fps of about 25%.

Nice one. <smile>

I got my MSc at Dundee University, way back in '73, so drank their water for a year. However, I didn't drink much of it - my diet was Haggis suppers and Guinness.

Re: I'm shuffling off now - well, not quite.

even if it seems you are 'talking to yourself' Actually, there is a little more to it than that. I described something to two members on different occasions. Both of them fell foul sometime later on the same issue in a new thread. This happened on the same day that I was reflecting on the previous ...

Re: I'm shuffling off now - well, not quite.

I have an idea which some of you may like. I should be able to post it this coming Sunday - the weather forcast here in London is 'Cloudy with Drizzle'. <smile> For CPRING, you should have kept your first post up to date so we know exactly where to pick up the latest I know.

Re: fast sin compare

Is this faster than the original code? It is infinitely faster because the original code will not compile with optimisation levels -03 and -0fast. Under certain circumstances, GCC may duplicate (or remove duplicates of) your assembly code when optimizing. This can lead to unexpected duplicate symbo...

Put srvadez's and mine side by side and ponder. You will only get half way through a cup of tea and the penny will drop - trust me. <smile>

Re: I'm shuffling off now - well, not quite.

@Munair Thank you. Here is a photo' of a photo' I took some time ago so it is a bit 'ropey'. It was pouring down with rain at the time. I was aiming to get a balance between the chimneys and the house in the background but I was bit concerned that the two sets of lines would take the viewer out of t...

I'm shuffling off now - well, not quite.

Last April I became fully retired after the previous year working only two days a week. Thirty five years ago my main hobby was photography and I then got into 'home computing'. Coding started to take over and my photographic interest dwindled. A couple of years ago I got a digital SLR, a Nikon 5300...

Re: Part 3 Action "the GUI library"

One day somebody may start a project to write a #####Basic-ish, non-OO, small, multi-platform GUI library for FB, but it may take time.. Dragging on a bit, isn't it? In the meantime, Windows members are churning out shed loads of GUI code. Oh wait, maybe not. That will change with a 'multi-platform...

Re: Part 3 Action "the GUI library"

Linux is superior in many ways. I am a Windows guy but I won't bother to dispute that because it is probably true. However, this thread is not about Windows versus Linux. But trying to develop a cross-platform programming solution will inevitably raise the size of executables. Me: Doctor, it hurts ...

Re: Part 3 Action "the GUI library"

In the WinFBE package, by Paul Squires, are some examples using José's WinFBX framework. Here is a Frame example with a few controls inside it. All I did was add a manifest. http://deltarho.org.uk/Downloads/FrameExample.png I ripped out the comments from the source code to see what it would reduce t...
