1. Yes 2. FBIDE (personal preference) 3. At last check, FB doesn't support BIOS (protected mode calls / functions) 4. Sometimes When you are doing your programming, you can use any IDE, editor or ASCII capable app that you like. I use everything from Notepad to the DOS Edit.com. (text editor), PFE32...

CPU clock speeds are simple. Every processor has a base run speed, and the active clock is afunction of the multipliers that it accepts. For example. If you have a 1.00 GHz CPU. It can be clocked there, by several ways. 500 MHz x 2, 333 MHz x 3, 250 MHz x 4 or 1 GHz x 1. Every processor is unique. T...

Along the same sort of line...

Is there a lib or kit, or does anyone know how to do some PCI handling via FB? I've not seen any, and the web is thin on the topic...

My humble thanx and appreciations, in advance...

FBCompiler .vs. WindowsUpdates...

Has anyone else, noticed, that your compiler either won't compile, or if it manages to do it, the .exe won't run? And, NO I don't have a virus or spyware. My FB machine is a standalone, and was freshly loaded a short time ago. I think, MS has changed the API call path or header pass struct, so thing...

SB In DOS mode

This is for the Sound Blaster output thread... I messed up. Oops... :p A couple of things to know.... First, KNOW your sound card. Which one is it? You will (in some cases) need a BLASTER environment variable. Where - BLASTER = Annn Inn Dnn Hnn Pnnn Tn Ennn A = Base IO address (usually 0x0220) I = I...

INPUT / LINE INPUT - Max Number of Variables?

With an INPUT statement, or LINE INPUT, even when used with the #{filenumber} format, how many variables can be used at a given time to read input form the console or a file?

If the input list is LONG... Can the variables be shown as var1..., _ var20...?

OR is this not possible?

The Elusive 'File.Bi'...

The FreeBASIC Wiki mentions, that a file called 'File.Bi' is somehow needed to use the 'File' commands?

Is that no longer true? Or did someone, forget to include it in the \inc folder? Or is there more to this story?...

When dealing with the ENVIRONment, you have to remember. A program, even when running under MS-DOS, PC-DOS, DR-DOS, FreeDOS, etc. is, still a child process. Whether or not, the program (child process) is NOT able to make a PERMANENT change. Becasue when the program opens a 'DOS Command Shell" the pr...
