Re: New here: Should I start with freebasic?

Of course one can accomplish that with FreeBasic. running on every Windows machine (no .NET dependency or...) Every supported Windows version has .NET pre-installed. So You can use .NET just like you use the Win32 API. And btw the Windows Command Prompt (cmd.exe) does support Unicode. To be honest y...

Sounds quite heavyweight (at least compared to the existing gfxlib backends), yet would allow easy/easier portability, also to new systems like OSX or Android.

Re: Darkreader

It's true that it is a shame that we not only hurt our eyes by over consumption of hot white blank screens, but also simply over consume energy. I mean collectively. There should be a black screen day in the world, just to get a measure of what difference it makes on any of those 2 domains. Ok... n...

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

Also note that "fast-math" has some negative implications on floating-point calculation accuracy, so you probably do not want to enable it in various situations.

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

Just as a matter of interest did it take long to do your custom builds. The reason I ask is that I am mindful of the contribution you, fxm and others make for the benefit of the community. I duplicated the existing build job and then adapted several configuration files to use the new compiler inste...

@deltarho[1859] and others: after your suggestion to update the gcc version (see https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=248038#p248038) I've installed a current version of gcc, version 8.1.0 from the mingw-w64 project and build a custom FreeBasic package for both win32 and win64 for testing pur...

Re: WinFBE Editor and FreeBASIC Compiler (All-in-One Package) (Updated June 3, 2018)

The default backend for FB32 is still GAS, that's why my 32-bit builds don't contain gcc (just like the official 32-bit FB 1.05 package, which doesn't contain gcc neither). However, an official gcc "add-on" package is provided: "gcc-5.2.0-for-FB-win32-gengcc.zip" https://sourcefo...

Re: New website

Who is maintaining FBEDIT? Is there an official package? FBedit is unmaintained since years and the official homepage is not available anymore. The fbedit SVN repo on freebasic-portal.de, which badidea referred to, is actually a fork of the original fbedit after a few years of inactivity, but that ...

Re: FreeBASIC development environment on Tiny Core LInux

It would be interesting to see if a build for it could be automated. The package dependencies are at least a bit simpler now. In case there's any interest in it I could try to add a build configuration for my CI server to create nightly builds. (However, up to now the interest in non-Windows builds...

Re: Problem with GTK and new machine

Do you still have the DLLs you used on your old machine? This would probably be the easiest solution :-) e.g. when the Linker gives the following error message: C:\FB\FreeBASIC\bin\win32\ld.exe: cannot find -lgtk-3 the dll has to be named "libgtk-3.dll". Also make sure that the architectur...

Re: Full Screen w/multiple monitors in Ubuntu

re (4): FreeBasic supports multiple graphics backends, including the good old framebuffer device (fbdev). So you don't need X11 or any other display server if your Linux Distro provides a framebuffer device. If you are running x11 you're probably using the X11 (or openGL, which builds upon x11) driv...
