Re: Writing a 'Short' using QB mode

In FreeBASIC's QB dialect (#lang "qb" or -lang qb), Integer is only 2 bytes, for QB-compatibility. So in that case it's the same as __Short. Ah, so when I read in the data from a binary file, it will read in both bytes? I'm still too used to using GFA BASIC on the Atari ST, which allowed ...

Re: Recommended settings for FBIde users

Is there a way to define which compiler each project will use? I want to create some DOS apps, and then move onto Windows apps. Currently FBIDE only points to the one existence of FBC.EXE - do I have to point it to the one I require every time? You can duplicate your FBIDE directory to have many in...

Writing a 'Short' using QB mode

I've been working on a simple shell piece of code to update my 22-year old DOS-game saved game hacks. The days of people knowing how to use Norton's Disk Editor is probably a lot slimmer these days compared to 1994 when I was writing these quick hacks. I never did send them in to PC Format, hence wh...

Re: Word helper (Microsoft Word automation wrapper)

Apologies for digging up an old thread, but is Wordhelper still being updated? I ask because I'd like to convert a really slow part of my Word Add-In into a separate program via FreeBASIC so that it speeds it up a lot. My Word Add-In: http://mikestoolbox.weebly.com The function I'd like to convert i...

Simple saved-game editor shell

It's been a while since I used QuickBASIC - too many years of GFA on the Atari ST and this also evolved into buying PureBASIC but it was never used (to my shame). What I had planned for it was to convert my old Atari ST-based saved game editing programs from the early 90's into Windows-based tools b...
