Re: [Linux] Try/Catch

The trick of try catch and try finally is nested use. This is where macro based workarounds usually fail.

Re: [offtopic]my girls

For alcoholic poison, I usually go with Tripels in winter time.

As girl duets go, I'm more a Floor (Jansen) & Simone (Simons)kind.

But Ann and Nancy Wilson will do just fine too.

Re: CRC16 specific: exactly the same as in XMODEM

I used this for CCITT (XModem) crc16. It also lists initial value and polynomal. function CRC16CCITT(p:pbyte;len:integer;initial:word=$1D0F): Word; const polynomial = $1021; // 0001 0000 0010 0001 (0, 5, 12) var crc: Word; I, J: Integer; b: Byte; bit, c15: Boolean; begin crc := initial; // initial v...

Re: Issue with RUN command?

Thanks for the tipp! I never used strace yet. It'll take some time to find out if it helps. (on *BSD often called ktrace/kdump (ktrace is about the same a strace but outputs to a binary file, kdump dumps the file, and on Solaris and Darwin something similar is called "truss". BTW: The tic...

Re: Issue with RUN command?

Look with strace to see what is passed to execve. Then you can see what goes wrong breaking up the argument line in its components. Unix/execve demands an array of parameters, in this case two (1) -c and (2) 'cmd-1 ; cmd-2' (without ticks maybe?) this should be visible with strace. if the FB helper ...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

Do you take into account the varying ABIs between win64 and *nix? (Different parameter regs). I'm aware of the differences and for procedure calls I could estimate it's ready at about 90%. Look at the code by searching #ifdef __fb_linux__ but don't hope to easily understand what is done ;-) Ok. Do ...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

Do you take into account the varying ABIs between win64 and *nix? (Different parameter regs). Do you use SSE or fpu for floating point support on win64 ? Register parameter save area, red zone support ?

Re: Suddenly FB executables are detected as Trojans

It is possible to turn of most of the privacy-invading features of Windows 10. What is essentially advertising in the start menu really bugs me though. Luckily I already mostly unlearned using the start menu for routine tasks, relying on windows-R invocations, windows-I shortcut to control panel an...

Re: Suddenly FB executables are detected as Trojans

Question: If you use the GCC backend do you see the same problems with FB executables, and differences with various optimization levels? I don't use fb much, and the few times that I do, I use the asm backend. I had problems with mingw in the past (I used mingw to build binutils and gdb for FPC), b...

Re: Suddenly FB executables are detected as Trojans

And it is exactly that "my way or the highway" mentality that is considered viral, forcing to build parallel codebases since GPL and nearly every non GPL license doesn't mix. Sure but that's just whining, especially when it comes from proprietary companies. As said the view came from the ...

Re: Suddenly FB executables are detected as Trojans

Viral (GPL) by nature. Lacking humor cues, I will take the comment at face value. It's absolutely false. Let's stop spreading this kind of FUD. The GPL cannot magically infect proprietary source code. If you use GPL code without complying with the GPL term, and distribute the resulting derivative c...

Re: Suddenly FB executables are detected as Trojans

Other way around; heuristic scanning is inheritly patchy, so this is simply the default. The popular compilers have submitted enough false positives to get the AV to tweak their algorithms around them. I'm not sure I buy that 100%. Did FreePascal have false positive issues and submitted samples? No...
