fonts are all about kerning and white space and a whole lot more so i'm finding out.

Re: FBTrueType static Win/Lin 32/64-bit

i see it is not necessary to copy fonts to the folder of the source code.
specifying the path is possible.
font = FontLoad("c:\windows\fonts\" & fontfilename)

Re: FBTrueType static Win/Lin 32/64-bit

Thanks Joshy for this contribution. I want to experiment with this a bit. How can i re-use the available ttf files i have on my laptop? Say for example the ttf files that comes with win10. My goal is to avoid having to include ttf files along with my source code files. I suppose the solution is that...

Re: my best effort

Although Sir Emerson is unfamiliar with freeBASIC (for the moment), he is a good candidate for understanding freeBASIC. However he works a full time job and his contribution to the project may better serve as a math teacher and other things for example, he will soon be helping them build the frame t...

Re: my best effort

The fbcadcam Philippines project is about freeBASIC but also much more.
We are fortunate indeed that Sir Emerson (an engineer who works in a pudding factory) is part of this project.

Re: my best effort

Now on to the beef (heart) of the matter: Are they learning how to program in FreeBASIC? Well yes and no. No, because they have a long way to go. Yes, because they are almost at that Tipping Point. UC to me the idea of learning how to program starts off at a Tipping Point. They are very very close ....

Re: my best effort

I thought to share with this community that last post because I find it to be fitting. Perhaps it would be better to say I find it to be an idea worth sharing. freeBASIC has matured over the years through the effort of a few generous people ie. FB DEV in which their effort is so easily blemished via...

Re: my best effort

It's been awhile since I have updated this community with what's going on in the Philippines. They are taking things in stride if you will. They mentioned in a recent post on there Facebook page that some of the new programmers are curious to know what this is all about. So I replied with a message ...
