Neat idea. I've often thought that the biggest downfall of Minecraft is that it's written in Java. Who the hell tries to write a 3d game in Java? It runs ridiculously slow on any computer that isn't a speed demon computer, and considering that the graphics are retro-style (read: crap, but we don't c...

FreeBASIC doesn't support inheritance at any rate so it probably doesn't matter too much. Many of the other features of OOP are available however, and I'd recommend learning them as programming with encapsulation makes a lot of things much, much easier. But it's your choice. I'm trying to figure out...

Me likey, but I must admit that I rather miss when it was all on one page. I was able to save it for offline reading later on when that was the case. Perhaps you could put a ZIP downloadable form? Not all of us have reliable internet available 24/7, i.e. some of us live in Nowhereville, USA :(

I doubt there will be any new compiler releases very soon; most of the devs are on hiatus because of real life things. It might not be as hard to convert the headers as you think. There's a program called SWIG used to do most of the work for you; you can find out more about libraries in this thread:...

Ah, I see. Remember FreeSound? I was wondering if you had ever done anything more with it, since it was a pretty useful library a while back. I need some way to mix some sounds and then output to WAV files. Since you're probably not programming any more nowadays, I'll probably try to figure out how ...

I love Lua, but I'll certainly take a look at this.

Basic syntax is always a nice thing, and being able to embed it in FreeBASIC is extremely helpful.

Replies: 9
Views: 1602

Though they are generally stored the same way (to a computer, NULL == 0), it's good to keep the distinction in mind. NULL literally means nothing; whereas 0 signifies the number 0. NULL may have different equivalents in different types; it means no number at all (rather than 0), or no characters at ...

If you want a preferences settings, you need to store them as variables, not constants. I'd recommend using a UDT, as jevans suggested. This also allows you to pass them about to various parts of the program, instead of using global variables, which are usually considered poor practice. For storing ...

I was always interested in contributing to the compiler, but two things conspire against me: -My lack of knowledge about the way the compiler works, or how to add things to it or fix things in it. Hell, I don't even know how to compile it from the SVN, though I suspect that would be the easiest part...

Cool. I wonder if this is the first time anyone's ever used FreeBASIC to try to cheat in an MMORPG ?

Small feature request: I often put FBEdit on a flash drive so I can program on computers where I can't install FreeBASIC. The problem is that different computers have different drive setups. So I'll set the paths in FBEdit to go to the G:\ drive (e.g., G:\Program Files\FBEdit) but later I'll go to a...
