By the way, I've used all the languages named above. :)


I used RPGIV in college as well as COBOL. I still have a pad of those Layout sheets somewhere in a closet. That was wild stuff. Thanks for bringing back those memories!

Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Oct 2018 – Jan 2019), 250 $ 1st prize

I am going to try to participate here. I have never managed to finish any game I started working on but I want to try this. FB has been part of my life for a long time now, and I would love do this. I even have a simple idea that I think I can do. Always wanted to participate in previous compos but ...

Re: Would anyone find a FreeBASIC vs JavaScript side-by-side series useful (+is it allowed here)?

I am of the same opinion as StW on this one. I feel like it could be good because having multiple tools in your toolbox makes you a better programmer in general. I know JS pretty well as I use it extensively with my current job, so I would be less interested in that exact language, but something on ...

Re: Rect_t - optimized type definition

I can see the benefit in both ways of doing this. It really does depend on the purpose of the code. If it is for YOUR USE ONLY, then do it however you are most comfortable. If you need something for others, like in a group programming situation, then it might be better to work with what would be sim...

Re: Rect_t - optimized type definition

I also do like the "memory is cheap" argument. This is actually an interesting way to do this task. I think this technique could be applied to lots of things. It makes the code simpler and makes the USING the code a bit clearer as it does not hide everything directly inside the object. Tha...

Re: programming for fun

For some, FreeBASIC is a paint brush; for others, it is simply a spanner. The spanner has no desire to be faced with a blank canvas; it just wants to strip an engine down. Some paint brushes look down on spanners; I think that they should mind their own bloody business. <smile> That is quite good. ...

Re: Program crashes when not using -exx

ON ERROR GOTO only works in -ex or -exx mode. Otherwise it will crash as you noted because the error is not being handled:

Re: Next generation name is FB++ ?

...I just see a propensity for some on this list to roll their own ad-hoc algorithms when a standard algorithm is often simpler and faster. Even If one is a low-level enthusiast then using existing such things should be appealing because they are so efficient. On the other hand if one just wants to...

Re: 52 card shuffle

Thanks, Imortis. I may be wrong but it looks like your code is falling fall of a random number generator's inability to provide us with all the possible permutations of shuffling a deck of 52 cards. FB's implementation of Mersenne Twister does not pass muster. See my ramblings above following "...

Re: Help in return for a donation

Oh my God! Did you read the description? I read this post and the other where you started asking about this. You refused to say what this was for there and here. The actions you are attempting to take can be used for nefarious purposes. Not saying there is no benevolent use for this code, but the s...
