Re: Has anyone looked into Jai?

Of particular interest, I'm thinking of times where the FBC devs have said certain features would require multi-pass or updating the compilation process. JAI seems to accomplish a lot while breaking traditional assumptions about what a compiler would require to support those features. I wish there ...

Re: Has anyone looked into Jai?

Jonathan Blow (renowned game developer and critic) is developing a programming language called Jai that seems to be doing some pretty neat stuff.

Re: VisualFBEditor - IDE for FreeBasic

Also, you say you want help with the library. What kind of help do you need?

Re: Can not find SDL, or any graphic libraries, when attempting to compile?

@f0rgotten: You might also get some use out of FreeBASIC's built in graphics library. It requires no extra libraries to be installed.

Here is a link to all the available keywords.

Re: Pure FB Runtime Library (in progress)

In a related note: one of the things this brings up is that FB itself uses variadic functions in many places inside the RTLib, but the C Emitter (which is needed for 64bit compilation) does not support variadic functions. Either, the C Emitter needs to fix this (difficult as FB and C handle that in...
