Re: How to make glitter paint

GIF used to be copy protected format that required payment to include in your program. The payment aspect ended (check this for yourself as I am not at all certain) although the copyright is still claimed. (To the best of my knowledge) Quoted from wikipedia: "By 2004 all the relevant patents ha...

Re: FreeBasic IDE-poseidonFB(Update 2018.08.21)

I am using Ubuntu 64 as well and the manual is working using F1. What happens when you select the chm file? Does it not show the full path in the preference window? Did you select "use help manual"? (I'm sure you did). You can try entering the entire path. Maybe you have re-assigned key F1...

Re: A simple RPG Engine with Charakters, buyable Items, Inventory and a simple Fightsystem, written by me

This should not work. In fact it doesn't on my system Linux. The first problem encountered is that you use the line dim Items(0) as Item This creates a fixed length array. A fixed length array cannot be resized. You then send that array to: sub add_item_to_table (ItemName as String,ItemTable() as It...

Re: GIT help

Thanks for the reply and good info. Git-Cola is not at all intuitive and it is frustrating. I only went with it because it was the only one that showed up in the software center when I searched "git gui". Git-Cola documentation seems to assume that the user is very familiar with the Git co...

GIT help

Hello: I am using Git_Cola on Ubuntu and would like to know how to do some things with it. I have a repository and have files in it. I change a file and it shows up in cola that the file is changed. I stage the file and drag it to the commit window. I title the commit and press commit. The file disa...

Re: FreeBasic IDE-poseidonFB(Update 2018.08.21)

HI Kuan: 1. I noticed an issue with the IDE. Selecting a block of code and then selecting CTRL + SHIFT + R (to un-comment the code) only un-comments code that has a comment character in the first column. The code should un-comment any line that begins with the comment character in any column. 2. I t...

Re: Union

A priori" is also much used in Spanish (at least in Spain). Fantastic. Therefore this is a great line to use in the Spanish language version of the FreeBASIC documentation. Thanks for pointing out that in my examples there are only two types in the unions. I see that it is not exactly breaking...

Re: Union

I am perplexed by this most recent edit. ' One field set a priori. Did you mean 'priority''? Are we really saving anything by not finishing 2 letters in the spelling? In any case how about examples that break that rule? I see no reason not to set multiple union members at the same time in the follow...

Re: Union

Ok Example 0 is good. Example 2 is now proven to be terrible. How you describe it now is what proves it. In the code comment the text says: "Can only..." That is completely different to: "Its only relevant to..." This example still demonstrates nothing and worse it probably confu...

@Pritchard:
What is your JavaScript development environment?
Do you use an IDE and if so which one?
Thanks.

Union

Lets look at the Union help page . In particular the example set. First we have an example that sets bit fields. Nowhere on that page are bit fields talked about or explained. The bitfields are talked about in the type page linked at the bottom, but a user has no indication that is where it is talke...

Re: Where have I gone wrong

Fair enough but at some point you are going to want to write back to that file (in theory). I took a look at what you are doing in your code. Isn't this a bit over done? Surely that file could be read with a simple structure of fixed length strings and a single get. Essentially you are doing the sam...

Re: Where have I gone wrong

I have not taken a close look at this but it would seem to me that Field = 1 should be added to the type to prevent padding issues.

Re: type with constructor in namespace issue

So then this is not a bug but just a behavior that is dependent on a setting deeper in the OS.
It may be worthy of mention in docs.
I have already worked around it in any case.
Thanks for looking at it.
