wth -- Thread time .vs Subroutine time

The initial thought: threads should run faster than the main program with no system interrupts. The routine runs through about 10 million calcs in two versions. There should be several processor cycles difference in the for/next loops. Thus I expected about half a millisecond (0.5) difference in the...

Re: Pentacles

@BasicCoder2 very nice drawing :-) could you post your latest tracer code ? @BasicCoder2 Was your generator tool used to draw an outline of the FreeBasic icon horse? I would like to see the code or an explanation of how the algorithm incremented to the next pixel, especially tracing curves of degre...

Re: Rule 30

r30(1,1,1)=0 'Rule 30 matrix
r30(1,1,0)=0 <-- r30(1,1,0) = 1
r30(1,0,1)=0
r30(1,0,0)=1
r30(0,1,1)=1
r30(0,1,0)=1 <-- r30(0,1,0) = 0
r30(0,0,1)=1
r30(0,0,0)=0

using the rule 30 spec my values differ.

Re: Duplicates

Hey all, I have a very large text file (near 1 TB) and on each line there is some text with a minimum length of twenty bytes and a maximum length of perhaps thousands of bytes. From this file I want to remove the duplicates entries. How would one approach this in FreeBASIC? Thanks @Provoni Thank yo...

Re: prime numbers searcher in QB

If you step n by 2 (as usual for primes by division), then it is slower for some strange reason, and of course misses out 2. If it steps by two, there is no call/return to the function -- it should be faster. But it is not. Over here, we have a bunch of donkeys and mules, who have no class what so ...

Re: prime numbers searcher in QB

Welcome to the site. I do not recall seeing the double divide before: the floating point & whole number division. That is a different approach. Most would use the shorter (quicker) mod instruction. Nice attempt. Keep up the good work. If speed is what you would like to see, several members have ...
