I would use BASE64 encoding for sending chunks of files. I'd agree, if we were living in 1980-something, and 7-bit machines hadn't been melted down to make Core 2 Duos. As it is, we live in an era where virtually everything uses 8-bit bytes and is binary-safe. Finally, why are you replying to a thr...

True, but libpcah is designed to by language-agnostic in it's interface, and the the lingua franca of compiled code is the C ABI, that's what I'm gunning for here. Note the included C header.

libpcah - A string-keyed array library.

libpcah is a library to allow you to use strings to address array elements instead of integer index. The name "pcah" no longer has any real meaning, the original meaning implies the library does something I just learned that it does not do. I was a little lacking in the programming concepts departme...

If someone ever decided to port to OS/2, you would also be best to have a "generic DOS" part of the RTL, since Windows, DOS, and OS/2 have a lot of common behaviours in e.g. filesystem design.

yetisoft pointed me to an implementation of the FBSTRING struct in C++ that would make a good starting point for this project. Check around for his 'tinybasic' project, it's on the forums somewhere. Specifically, this is the implementation in question: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=j5d3bHp7

. With some work, this can probably also be extended to Java code compiled by the GNU Compiler for Java. (one of the problems for that will probably be BY REF parameters of valuetypes ) This is mentioned mostly as a possibility, since gcj compiles to the same ABI as the g++, and allows intermixing ...

C++ FBSTRING implementation

I am working on a C++ implementation of FreeBASIC's first class String type. The FreeBASIC compiler, when using OOP features, mangles symbols to the Itanium C++ ABI, which is the same C++ ABI used by gcc 3.4 and later (on all architectures, not just Itanium), as well as Intel C++ Compiler on Linux (...

Re: I agree

And a newbie forum & website No. Just, no. Just don't deal with n00bs. PERIOD. Tell them to take a hike, for all it's worth. I'm not saying "n00bs to FB" but "n00bs to programming". It seems most of the n00bs here are both. "n00bs to FB" aren't n00bs at all if they've got a few year experience ...

Re: Updated and New Library Headers

I started this project awhile back after translating a couple headers for some people. I'm looking for help with the massive translation efforts. I have headers for several new libraries translated already and W.I.P. versions of some already existing headers (GTK, glib, pango, etc). I am going to b...

@McLovin That's not true. I've already delivered some contributions to FreeBasic (see some of my previous postings, e.g. bindings & examples for a PDF library, a plotting library and a glade converter for FreeBasic). What I want to make clear is the following: some people have already done the ...

I've managed dynamic arrays in UDTs by using properties. It doesn't need any pointer arithmetic for usage at all. As you can see here. That is not exactly this, and therefore doesn't count: Type Foo m_array() As Integer End Type And have that there do exactly what a dynamic array outside a ...
