there seems ^^^ to be a typo

And could you please look into the compatibility (CPU, Win32 version) of the "win32-mingworg" packages.

Re: Issues in real DOS on a 486

Re: [BUG] FBC 1.01.0 misevaluation (addition+wrap+compare)

I see - yes, the result is as expected. Most operations will have a return type at least as big as the operands passed to it. All operands in my code are UINT8, so I expected 8-bit processing. Besides, the '1' in 'KK8+1' is an Integer Then the documentation http://www.freebasic.net/wiki/wikka.php?w...

Just to be sure, does this FB code have the problem? var f = freefile() if open("C:\texte.txt", for binary, access read, as #f) <> 0 then print "FB open() failed" end 1 end if close #f NO. It works (compiled by FBC 1.01.1) perfectly in EDR-DOS and FreeDOS.
