Re: Binary data visualization with OpenGL

Great original concept and nifty OpenGL implementation! I added the following after: #include once "GL/glu.bi" to load different files more conveniently. DIM AS STRING filename DIM AS INTEGER ff = FreeFile() SCREENRES 300, 100, 32,, &h04 PRINT INPUT " filename? ", filename IF...

Re: Porting Fractal program to FB

I expect some readers may have already recognized the patterns generated by ganache's and BasicCoder2's programs. The equation generates a Gumowski-Mira 'fractal', which was developed at CERN in 1980 to calculate the trajectories of sub-atomic particles. A long time ago I used FreeBASIC to generate ...

Re: AES Encryption/Decryption Algorithm

csde_rats is right. I think Zamaster created this example as a prototype / proof-of-concept. IMHO, I think what he coded in 2007 is excellent - as a concept. Implementing an encryption cipher is not trivial, even when meticulously following the official specs. However, this code example is dangerous...

Re: flow of fluid solver and volumen rendering

Really good Joshy. The stirring smoothness and speed are impressive. OpenGL is a good move. (I believe Duke4e did a Jos Stam conversion in the forum a few years ago, which was good, but pixelated.) Processing, usually fast at graphics, can struggle with this sort of thing: http://www.openprocessing....

Re: Debian package FBC-1.01~debian7_armhf

Excellent work TJF.

Perhaps this is the first Linux FreeBASIC compiler that can be installed via a package manager?

Being ARMv7, I assume this package works well on a Raspberry Pi 2 ?
If so, it might be good to mention this in your English and German documentation?

Re: Tech Arena

Hello Jason,

Looks impressive in the video - fast, smooth, nice background. Just a bit dark in the foreground.

Very promising.

Did you create your data section in an ASCII art program, or do it from scratch?

Re: My Stream-Cipher Encryption Algorithm Project

Your site documentation is clear and neat.

The Standard Version's key size of 64-bits would bother me (re: DES cipher).
But looking at a contemporary stream cipher, Achterbahn, its lower version is only 80-bit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achterbahn).

@nymair Yes, I agree. On my CentOS 6.5 32-bit, the following enabled FBC, FBC-GCC, and GUI-executable creation: cd <extracted_directory> sudo ./install.sh -i sudo yum install gcc sudo yum install ncurses-devel.i686 libX11-devel.i686 libXext-devel.i686 libXpm-devel.i686 libXrandr-devel.i686

Re: Need help speeding up division

@rollie
Yes, SHR should be the fastest way to divide by powers of 2, without resorting to ASM.
Ages ago, when I compared in FBC 0.18b (?), SHR was ~15% faster than using the equivalent division operator.

Multiplying by the reciprocal of the divisor is another way to avoid slow division.
