I'll take that as just another sour comment from the few bitter forum members that are too scared of their spouses to abuse them.

Jim, The idea is to use the best of the three working translators coding concepts and adapt it to ANSI C. Portability of Basic code is the primary focus of this generic Basic translator project. The second most important goal is the ability to expand on the base translator and take it in whatever di...

OT - generic Basic to C translator

If you have some spare time on your hands and would like to help out with a generic Basic to C translator created by Basic programmers for Basic programmers, your contribution would be welcome. We are using ScriptBasic to prototype the initial translator with a goal of self translation when it's sta...

For the process of GUI coding GTK+ offers a lot of advantages compared to win API.


Not having to deal with Windows messages, better multi-window support and resize-able controls within a container based layout scheme makes GUI programming much easier for me.

ScriptBasic scripts don't compile to byte code either. It's PCODE with a interface wrapper to a shared object API/runtime. Both ScriptBasic and Gambas have much in common at the core language level. Gambas is a Basic development environment supporting the Basic programming language with object exten...

I like Gambas a lot. Getting it install and working can be as difficult as VB. It's nice to see Ubuntu offering it as a installable application. I still have to start the IDE as root or many of the files show as READONLY. http://files.allbasic.info/AllBasic/GambasGears.png http://files.allbasic.info...

VB Linux

I'm sure there are still VB6 users out there that miss the old interface and ease of use. It seems that VB.NET became it's own variation of the language. I'm one of those nostalgic VB users but put it behind me when I made Linux my primary desktop. (story continues but side tracked for a moment) I w...

I remember a client of mine that was running a DOS Paradox custom application that went down on a daily basis due to file corruption over a Windows 2003 server network. Paradox copies the whole file to the users workstation. I ended up moving their system to Linux running DOSEMU and it was like runn...

But would it be possible to add this header file to the freebasic distribution? I am mostly worried about license/copyright issues. Wouldn't that be like Ford saying that nothing other than a Ford make vehicle may park on their grounds and it's not permit-able to show the facility exists on any map?

Probably, but where is the universal API you are talking about? My first post on the topic. look for the link to gtk-server.cfg I really don't see this going anywhere other than another opportunity to give me crap for try to contribute.

Strange? I thought gtkserver was some service that you can send ascii datagrams? Or isthe universal format that you used inside GTKserver, e.g. to bind the gtkserver to the real lib? GTK-Server is a wrapper for a DynaCall or FFI interface to dynamic link libraries (shred objects) using a space deli...

From Galeon's post preceding mine.

Sorry, I didn't find it because I searched for 'separate' and the original text is 'seperate'.


I didn't mean to quote Galeon out of context, I only quoted the highlight of his point.
