FBC ver 1.06.0 DOS

I was just looking through the distribution, and I found it a little confusing to identify what is valid for DOS in the examples dir. In the main thread for the DOS distribution, it was mentioned that there is some experimental multitasking, but I do not see anything in the DOS examples dir that wou...

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

I am more interested in FreeDOS and FBC, if I have a copy of MS-DOS, I have not used it in a very long time. I just noticed a new version of FBC is available, and I also noticed that it has some "experimental" multithreading for DOS. Now, I am wondering if that could be used in a manner th...

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

...8-bit should provide a full 256-colour palette (although I think the last 8 or so colours are black). Does anybody have a chart listing for the color palette that FBC supports? I have the standard listing of 0 - 15, with zero being black, and …, etc. Since it seems that FreeDOS and FBC handle co...

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

Just to see how FreeDOS handles GUI, I created the program below. A couple of things I did notice with the FBC DOS version, only 16 colors to work with? The other thing is, for some reason the "time' display does not look right, not sure how to fix that. I am sure that there are other things th...

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

In these kind of messages there is always so much hope, but after 40 years of dos, there should be more than hope to show for. Yea, I totally agree, but it is what it is. What would I like to see? Maybe a freeDOS kernel that has multitasking and of course 32 bit protected mode. Have the kernel be a...

FreeDOS 21st century?

As I was doing some electronics clean up I came across a couple of items that maybe could work with FreeDOS. That led me to go to the FreeDOS site, where I noticed they just released FreeDOS 1.3 RC1, that got me curious. I also noticed some coverage of something called the NightKernel, more curiosit...

Re: SQLite 3. Any update since 1.05 release 3 years ago?

I just installed FreeBASIC for Linux, and I was trying to play around with sqlite, but when I compile my test program, it comes back with ld: cannot find -lsqlite3. Did the Linux version forget to include "sqlite3.bi"? I checked some of the directories for sqlit3.bi, but I could not find i...

Re: MyTerminal prog

I just came across this thread, and I noticed that it is a ten year old thread. Wow, how time flies … I also noticed, that the thread has a few views, which makes me think, did anybody get anything out of reading the whole thread. I would like to thank, phishguy, again, for all the help that he had ...

Re: Resignation

Well, it looks like mrswiss won the battle and the war. The reason I do not post any more code is because of mrswiss. I am still interested in FreeBASIC, but I just look at what is posted these days. I guess mrswiss has free reign to find somebody else to bring to submission, by whatever means are n...

CAM - Computer Aided Manufacturing I am not a real big fan of CAD, I am an old flatus, that still prefers a couple of triangles, pencils, dividers, drawing paper, and all the other hand held tools to get the job done. I still think that the design aspect is still an art form that provides for the ex...

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

After doing some more Freebasic 32bit and 64bit, on a fresh install of the Raspberry Pi Desktop (PC), FreeBasic does not like the Raspberry Pi Desktop (PC) OS. I am not sure why FreeBasic is not installing correctly, some Freebasic install guru will have to figure that one out. Time to move on.

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

After doing a few more test compiles, something is still wrong. Sometimes I get an error free compile, and at other times, it shows that I am missing some libs, which I know I installed. I guess it is time to re-install the OS, and start from scratch. Propbably get back to this tomorow.

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

So, I went ahead and did a 'sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib', and now it is compiling without any errors. Now the question is, since I have both 32bit and 64bit installed, which one is being compiled, 32 or 64. The gcc-multilib is for the 32bit version, I guess I am now getting 32bit compiles, I t...

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

Before this gets to be very confusing, an explanation. Raspberry Pi has two OSs, one for the small board, which runs on an ARM, and the Raspberry Pi Desktop, which runs on a PC or a MAC computer. I am having the problem with the PC Desktop version. The Raspberry Pi Desktop version was just upgraded,...
