Re: C-like for() statement using macros

Excuse the formatting. I'm using https://www.jdoodle.com/execute-freebasic-online to write and test this with. I'd consider 6 levels deep sufficient for most programs. If you're using this to assist with automated conversions, I would consider it... #macro CFOR(start,cond,step) #ifndef CNEXT_ #macro...

Re: Compiled reality

Compilers are best at optimizing individual functions, and sometimes good at optimizing their immediate context. Compiler authors aim to make optimizations that are as close as possible to theoretically, deterministically proven not to cause harm. They don't always succeed. Sometimes, compilers will...

Re: Compiled reality

Yes, warnings... compiler flags can actually alter behavior of code. Very frustrating for professional developers. I know very good programmers who write very large programs and run into this sort of issue in production environments. I am of the belief that a compiler should never alter the results ...

Re: What is machine learning?

Our team just won a local civic hackathon for the government using machine learning. Microsoft has some good chatbot technologies that have pre-loaded with algorithms and data sets and can train against your conversational workflows. It's pretty cool stuff. As far as I'm aware, it's really fancy sta...

Re: FreeBasic Discord Server (Alternative to IRC)

Re: How is everyone

If I was to contribute to FB at this point, it would probably be to make some cross-platform tool and to add some much-needed utilities useful for real-world applications & game development. Although, what's the difference these days between doing that and just writing a game in Unity or a web o...

Re: Essentially, Leaving the Community.

I'm reaching the point (I'm still in my 20's) where my pursuit of happiness (ie. programming) is making me unhappy, because I worry about how I might better spend my time/use my skills while I'm doing this. Of course, you are right that only I can make that determination, and I just did. I just ans...

Re: Apple emoji typeface: legal concern

EDIT: Nevermind me. I thought you were talking about the forum. Yes, you would need to know the terms and conditions of using Apple's emojis (or the typeface containing them) for your own product - whether or not you can use them at all. If you contact Apple's legal department, they are likely going...
