Re: FreeBasic communication with Arduino logic error?

Hi paul doe, my apologies. I've tried my best with Mr Swiss and I've asked a lot from many members, so I appreciate you hanging in there. Nothing wrong with the concept, however, the code is "disinformation". Reason: no Arduino can deal with Double (data-type) since, Single is the only sup...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

I tried registering over at MASM forums hopefully to be of direct assistance. The MASM forum registration asks 7 questions. I do believe it took me at least 10 attempts to pass the Q&A. Not too bright I am, I guess. We'll see. I haven't actually received the confirmation email yet to login and p...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

Hi SARG, Nice! You using git to track your changes is super easy for me to work with. If you want to make it really easy for me and other git users, just push your active branch to public. Very easy if you register on github. For example, assuming that you have set up a github account with your remo...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

Yeah, I don't think that's it. The Q&A was/is set up to accept several variations with or without spaces and mixed case. "free basic "..., "FreeBASIC "..., "Free Basic "... and so on, would all be valid. There is an option under the Q&A named "Strict Check:...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

From 2019-12-29 to 2020-01-08 we had 300+ new users registered. And then about 100+ cases of spam posts, that Imortis cleaned-up. I changed the Q&A question to avoid the spam bots from registering. I was concerned the question might be too hard, and apparently it is. The question is: "What ...

Re: Pull Requests

fxm, about './fbc-int/memory.bi': for now, documentation should probably only exist in developer pages. There's a couple of experiments here. In hindsight, I should have added a big EXPERIMENTAL tag to the include file from the beginning (can still do that). Based on your break down, there's 2 thing...

Re: Pull Requests

fxm, thanks for the breakdown. 'fb_MemCopy' & 'fb_MemMove' should get their own wiki pages with descriptions and examples. Goal of 'fb_MemCopy' & 'fb_MemMove' is to have a general purpose 'copy-memory' and 'move-memory' statement be available in fbc. These low level bulk memory copy/move sta...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

@coderJeff Is the release date for 1.08 already planned ? "planned" is a strong word. I have in my mind to aim for 2020-March, no promises. So far this winter, work has been busy. If obligations at work slow down a bit, it's more likely to happen when I want it to happen, otherwise later.

Re: Need new gfxlib driver for Windows 7, 8, 10

Recently, adeyblue has been submitting patches for fbgfx bugs plus writing a brand new Direct2D windows driver for fbgfx. It looks pretty good to me. It also makes some changes in how the internals work (and/or used) and I can see some possibilities for tweaking the existing DirectX, GDI, OpenGL dri...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

SARG, correct. fbc and run time do not support var-len wstrings (yet). Already answered with a work-around at viewtopic.php?f=17&t=27814&p=266589#p266127

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

hi SARG, I posted your code on top of current fbc/master (1.08.0) plus my changes at SARG-gas64 . There are some compiler warnings (if using -w pedantic), and at least one error when building a release version of fbc because internal typeDumpToStr() is only available when building the debug version ...

Re: Pull Requests

hi JK, I am currently working on your pr206 (POKE ANY to invoke memmove). I'm OK with the concept, not the implementation. I'm working on it because having a built-in way access low level memmove (and memcpy) is generally helpful. Based on many user codes seems like this capability is missing from f...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) :-)

@coderjeff Could you please try on your side the test suite. By the way, very impressive. Hi, SARG. Looking pretty good. I missed the part about based on 1.07, and I have tested on most recent fbc/master. I made some changes to run the fbc test suite to completion (using the normal makefile process...
