Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

This weekend I took the time to update a few bindings (headers for 3rd party libraries) shipped with FreeBasic. Luckily dkl has provided us a great tool which drastically simplifies binding creation called "fbfrog" (https://github.com/dkl/fbfrog). Beside that there's a repository with fbfr...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

re TDM: build works again, thank you.

re new file functions: any reason why the function is called fileTruncate in the changelog and fileSetEOF in the wiki?

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I don't know if it's of any importance, but some recent commit on master broke the TDM-GCC build. CC src/rtlib/obj/win32/file_htruncate.o In file included from src/rtlib/win32/file_htruncate.c:4:0: d:\tdm-gcc-32\include\unistd.h:41:20: error: unknown type name 'off_t' int ftruncate(int, off_t);

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

wow, what a lot of different packages for various platforms. Thanks a lot coderJeff for all the effort you put into this.

There are now some dedicated packages for certain Ubuntu LTS versions - what system are the default (generic) linux binary packages built on?

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

Thanks for your detailed answers. [...]The manual part is that I have a VM for each system that I boot and refresh the build scripts from a LAN based repo, then run the build process on each system. I can recommend Jenkins with the VirtualBox pugin to automate that. That's the environment I'm using ...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

How does your build pipeline look like? A current 64-bit FreeBSD fbc build can be found here, in case you want to avoid bootstrapping manually: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/builds/freebsd64/ Older 32-bit FreeBSD builds can also be found there (the cross-build is currently broken), should als...

Re: St_W builds

The GNU tools binaries (as, ld, gcc) usually don't change for a long period of time,thus you could simply copy over the new FreeBasic build into your existing fbc-nightly installation folder (overwriting existing files) if you have set it up once. What I thought I could be doing to improve the situa...

Re: St_W builds

You're right. GCC is not included in the win32 builds, only in the win64 ones (because win32 defaults to gen gas while win64 defaults to gen gcc). No change here in recent months. The main reason for not including GCC is its size, which increases the size of the ZIP und thus the storage space needed...

Re: fb 1.07 tests

Therefore, it seems that only the passing of: ENABLE_STRIPALL=1 was omitted building 1.07.0 DEV. I'm pretty certain that St_W could fix that quickly, for future builds (which restores "old" defaults). That's correct, I didn't add that setting, but I could easily. The question is what will...

What is the process to get this example (and maybe many more) fixed? Create a GitHub account? I have not worked with GitHub before. ⋅ Prerequisites: - a GitHub account and - a Git client installed on your PC ⋅ Fork the official FreeBasic repository https://github.com/freebasic/f...

Re: How can I add auto-completion in fbedit?

There's a tool "MakeApi" that comes with FreeBasic and is intended to generate ".api" files from FreeBasic source code/headers. However tended to be a bit unstable or broken for certain source files, so you may need to tweak it (and/or your input files) a bit.

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Previously dkl prepared the build information and related things right after the release for the next one. See e.g.: https://github.com/freebasic/fbc/commit/cf5119532ed35edf77cfc7f6da1570aeeeae58e3 counting_pine (or other FB devs) didn't do that after the 1.06 release, that's why it still shows 1.06...

Re: HTTPS Requests in FreeBasic

There's also a library-version of curl, libcurl, which provides an API that you can use directly in your application instead of running external applications. Dealing with SSL yourself can get quite complicated, so I strongly advice to use some library that handles this for you (like the one I menti...

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Status update: The automatic package upload was broken, thus no new builds were uploaded recently. I fixed the problem today, so the latest builds should be uploaded this night. Additionally the FreeBSD 32-bit build is broken currently and also the 64-bit tests on Windows, will have a look at these ...
