Re: How to use C/C++'s main function on FreeBASIC?

As miilvyxg I declared I will not use this language. But I don't want to end my adventure with this language this way. So I created operator+. Finally I realize I have to admit defeated and give up. FreeBasic is definitely not for everyone and every purpose. There are so many languages out there, I...

No. The only thing I see is stupid languages trying to wrap around C/C++ concept of the main function as the program's entry point via hackish and absurb syntax. Return like C/C++ is enough. Why have to invent neither Exit nor End?

Re: Using a static library: linker problems

A DLL could be loaded by Java's JNA and C#'s P/Invoke. A static library can't. This is the different. I want my stuffs to be able to be used from Java and C#. So I prefer DLL. This is about interpreted language. Yes, I know Java and C# are not interpreted language the same sense as Python. But just ...

Yes. Your language is not a good deal for me either. So I don't use your language.

Re: How to use WinMain with FreeBASIC?

Well, the End used here is a function:

https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/KeyPgEnd

The End used to end a block of code is another End:

https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/KeyPgEndblock

The former End is just like Free Pascal's Exit:

@operator+, why don't you start using the forum's search engine and the documentation for a change? Want to be spoonfed? On Java world if you searched for a problem on Google most of the time you will just have to copy code from someone's site or stackoverflow, paste into your IDE and et Voila! p/s...

Try searching the forum for "hinstance" and you get over a thousand results! What kind of syntax is this? declare function WinMain ( byval hInstance as HINSTANCE, _ byval hPrevInstance as HINSTANCE, _ byval szCmdLine as zstring ptr, _ byval iCmdShow as integer ) as integer end WinMain( Ge...

Any usage I find for FB is fail for me. The language is simply not suitable for me which being a Java guy from the beginning.

There's also a library-version of curl, libcurl, which provides an API that you can use directly in your application instead of running external applications. Dealing with SSL yourself can get quite complicated, so I strongly advice to use some library that handles this for you (like the one I ment...
