Re: Squares

@albert,

seems, you are looking for a BCD encoder (binary coded decimal).
You may want to look at: Union as 'own' data-type which is only at byte level currently,
but can be extended by yourself, if needed/wanted ...

Re: Substitute text into a string

AFAIK, compiling with -pp tells the preprocessor to expand the #Define (#Macro)
into a string, which whould then be printable ... (no direct method I know of).

Re: windows message & dialog boxes

OK, you've got it, I'll report it, in future.
I've actually thought up to this day, that you're preferring "self regulation", in the forum.

Re: windows message & dialog boxes

MrSwiss, please don't take it upon yourself to admonish new forum users. Well, just to give you something to consider too: New user: TheRaven, on the 9th in this section alone, did it 8 times, the same day ... I just think, that such must be acted upon, in a very timely manner, otherwise people bec...

Re: Getting blocked by Immunify360 while accessing the forum

If your cpanel shows it disabled, then I'm guessing the hosting provider is running it at a higher level. Considering what caseih noted: you just might gain some finer-grained control, if you actually "enable" it, in the CPanel (just assuming, here). Some options might pop up, currently h...

Re: Getting blocked by Immunify360 while accessing the forum

Just happened again, while uploading "using ENUM" (Tips & Tricks) ... I've done a few "preview's" and edits, then "submit" which failed. A second try succeeded (after dealing with Immunify360). Btw. the graphics in the "captcha", have a rather abysmal qual...

using ENUM

This shows the use of ENUM's in order to simplify e.g. command line processing. Assume: you want to read a simple to use command-line-switches, which in fact, would require a rather complex evaluation in your code ... The example chosen is a FBC compiler call (programmatically), which we know to hav...

Re: createprocess

This is a way late to the gate reply, I found this post very helpful, thank you.
Why, then do it, in the first place?

Btw. overwriting/renaming a threads title is: 'bad news' ! (related to forum-search)
Apart from the fact, that 'bumping' old threads, is discouraged (plse. stop doing it).

Its of no use to do it, if the people in question, have left the forum, long ago.

Therefore, 'bumping' old threads is discuraged (plse. stop doing it).

Re: Inline assembler

Very late response ....
And long, after the issue (and more) had been solved.
Its considered 'a bad habit' to 'bump' old threads (aka: rewarm the dead).

Re: Difficulties in DOS on real hardware

Company IT differs from Home PC's in that way, that before a new OS is deployed, many, many tests are performed (e.g. HW as well as SW compatibility tests) and, only if the Standards have been redefined/rewritten and approved by management, HW as well as SW procured then ... deployment is planned, t...

Trust me. -- Maybe you are mixing periods. I was only stating the HW we've had in the company, of course "loaded up" during rollout. (What could not be upgraded, was simply replaced.) ... we had REAL problems ... We've just solved those (with the rollout). ;-) Strange for a person advocat...
