Re: are memory streams impossible? (windows solved! needs li

In linux, can't you just fork() and just stream over the pipe from parent (data producer) to child (data consumer)? If not, angros's solutions should work on Linux with a little tweaking; you can create pipes and dupe file descriptors there too.

Re: are memory streams impossible?

It's really late at night, so what I'm saying may sound incredibly fantastic, but can't you map a desired memory buffer to a file descriptor with mmap, and then write to said descriptor like a stream? I know that's not how mmap is supposed to work, and I don't even know if mmap calls are available o...

Re: New FB game making competition - interested?

Every time I enter the competition, I end up over-engineering to the extreme and get stuck in a project that has no hopes of finishing. So if there is a new competition, I would just stick to making something very simple and dirty. Which is better than not finishing at all. :P And I'm still working ...

Re: Off Topic. Encrypting this forum

For an open source oriented community, seems awfully silly to hide perfectly innocuous discussions about code. And inconvenient to boot.

Re: Until the html entities in code is resolved

*cough*sed*cough*. :P Edit: I think I found the bug. "(" translates to "&#40;" and the old code is broken up into multiple html spans. One for "&#" with a green color, one for "40" with pink, and a standalone ";". code: <span style="colo...

Re: freebasic.lang for gedit?

I made one a while ago (without checking whether one already existed), just uploaded here: https://gist.github.com/dkl/8852322 I would have sent it upstream, but I couldn't get the preprocessor directive highlighting to work even though I was 100% sure to have used the same code as done in the lang...

freebasic.lang for gedit?

Has anybody attempted to send a freebasic language file upstream for GtkSourceView? I know there were some older files floating around on this board, but I don't know if anybody contacted the Gedit maintainers about it.

Re: FB for the Mac

I think there has been at least one experimental OS X port of fbc, but it was a long time ago. If you mean running freebasic on Linux atop Apple's hardware, yeah, it's possible just as with any normal PC. I ran Ubuntu on a macbook for a couple years, and all the normal programs (like freebasic) ran ...

Re: How many people actually use FreeBasic?

I've used to use FB a lot for academics and research. I still use it for writing some server tools and back-end software. Which, given my distaste for writing UI code, is the bulk of what I do :P

Seavax (WIP game)

Hi there. I'm currently making a multiplayer strategy game inspired by aspects of Globulation 2 , minecraft, and Freeciv . Pretty much the gist is that you control individual units on a turn-based map, build improvements, discover new tech, conquer enemy nations, the whole 9 yards. The server and cl...

Isn't the git repo ready? For reading at least.

I was asking about classes since that stood out the most, but I didn't realize the todo list was so old. I'm mostly looking to help and learn; it's not that I'm doing this because I want a particular feature in. :)

Status on classes in fbc

Hello, I was just wondering about the current status on classes, if work has actively started on them and if they need help. I guess some background is needed. Well, background shall be supplied. Recently I've been taking a major break from coding (school related reasons), so now I've come back and ...

Pretty. Anywho, I skimmed it and nothing looked wrong performance wise. Though the biggest processor hog seems to be just the sheer workload. Biggest problem is all the magic numbers flying about, it's very hard for me to edit and test the code when there are numbers sitting about and I have no idea...

Okay, problems solved, although something happened with src/rtlib/obj/Linux/mt. Problems as in I may have accidentally sent it to the bit bucket when compiling. Though it still seems to run; I managed to get a hello world program to run fine.
