Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

The compiler will not run without a floppy disk in A:.?? What shell are you running in?

On WinXPSp3 Home from cmd.exe shell. 'set PATH=' and just run fbc.exe:
FreeBASIC-1.06.0-win32.zip works OK for me
FreeBASIC-1.06.0-win32-mingworg.zip works OK for me

Not sure what to suggest next.

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

What gcc is used and is there a link that shows what compiler switches are available? Mainly need to know the CPU architectures the gcc supports. If you are using standalone version of fbc.exe you can find gcc in the bin/win64/gcc.exe which should be version 7.1.0. You can check by running 'gcc...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

You can use the ".zip" version which should give no issues with the anti-virus. We are using NSIS (nullsoft installer) to create our self extracting installer. I am thinking, it is most likely a false positive, which evidently, NSIS is known for. See https://nsis.sourceforge.io/NSIS_False_...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

It seems, it's related to the build process, after all ... Indeed, thanks. I see now: the build script gets a clean copy of GoRC.exe from the website, but then runs strip command on all exe's and GoRC.exe is getting modified. Don't think need to be alarmed about this, but also don't want this to ha...

Re: FreeBASIC Community produced game

I was thinking the same thing. And really that's fantastic. It was great to see Lachie organizing the competition, and all the enthusiasm for it, all the new stuff getting made. I have still have interest for this thing, some kind of community produced effort, maybe not in the leadership role. I thi...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

Last time IIRC, I've sent it to manufacturer, who confirmed "false positive" Thanks, I've submitted the file to Avira's website for false positive analysis. The direct download link is http://www.godevtool.com/Gorc.zip and in theory should give you the same issue, unless the file was comp...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

fbc 1.06.0 package includes GoRC.Exe v1.0.2.0 (2018).

fbc 1.00.0 through 1.05.0 packages include GoRC.Exe v1.0.1.0 (2013).

Does Avira remove it during a scan? Or just when it gets executed? I know it's been a few years, but did you have to add it as an exception to the anti-virus?

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

fbc: Symbol `ospeed' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking I am almost certain that this is due to libncurses/libtinfo library on my build system being different from the same named shared library on your system. I chose Ubuntu 14.04 as the build system because it's same as what ...

Re: Bit duplication

Yeah, don't trust that timing because gcc is optimizing the loop away. Even though the program says to loop 100000000 times, only the last result is actually used, and the procedure called has no side effects (and it's not asm), so gcc determines that it only really needs to call the procedure once....

Re: Bit duplication

Don't know if you would call it elegant, due the bit fiddling... and assuming input is only 8 bits at most. function dup8bits( byval x as ulong ) as ulong '' spread the bits out dim r as ulong = x and &h00ff r = (r or (r shl 4)) and &h0f0f r = (r or (r shl 2)) and &h3333 r = (r or (r shl...

Re: Our environnment

I like this idea. I would even take it further. Personally I would like to see one (1) sticky only in each sub-forum that serves as the index to the all the desirable topics for that forum, at least as a goal. But that's just a goal, and sometimes multiple stickies would still be needed, for example...

Re: Building FreeBASIC 1.06 Release

Thanks. I started trying out ReactOS, and looks promising. The application manager has options to download and install git, and FreeBASIC 1.05. So without much effort, can get a bootstrap fbc, and have git to access the repository. Ideally, if I can get shared drives working, it looks like it could ...
