Re: INSIDE ACTIVEX WITH FREEBASIC

None of the links to 2shared are anymore working.
That's the problem when using general sharing sites :(

Re: Own IDE and Freebasic license

Thanks a lot. Reading from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_General_Public_License at chapter "Communicating and bundling with non-GPL programs" the mere bundling and communication between separated GPL software with non-GPL software via pipes or command line execution seems possible. Any...

Own IDE and Freebasic license

Hi all, I have an IDE (editor + some other tools) for a source code editor. My IDE is freeware but not open source. Question : is it possible to pack inside my own IDE distribution (a <Setup>.exe progam that install the IDE) a copy of FreeBasic compiler (not Freebasic sources) in order to distribute...

I use PB on a daily basis and FB every now and than. Both are good (it would be quite impossible to list pro/cons of both compared to each other) but I personally prefer PB mainly because: - quite hard to find a bug - what is documented is what it does (as stated before) and it does a lot - new vers...

thinBasic has no Flash layout at all but only pure CSS formatting. Flash is only used for home page image scrolling (the center box near "About programming passion") I'm a great fan of FreeBasic. Even if I do not post very often, I'm quite often here in search of help in forum posts. If someone is i...

I'm sorry, I cannot contribute.
I know how to write interpreters ( http://www.thinbasic.com ) but I have no clue on how to write compilers.

Extended data type

Are extended floating point numbers (10 bytes, 80 bits, 18 digits of precision) supported by FreeBasic ?
I'm interfacing some DLL developed with Power Basic that have EXT parameters passed BYREF.

Thanks a lot

I can get your point and to be honest I've been in similar situations few times. What I've learned too is that going with Windows API is the best way to have full control over applications. Maybe a bit long at first but with some good books and the help of the many examples that can be found, hardly...

LoneWolf, agree, FreeBasic is really a fantastic language full of nice surprise at every corner. I'm still learning it but quite sure about that. But in your search of the perfect language, you mix a lot of different languages each with its specific properties and targets. You also mixed compiled la...
