Re: Array Descriptor (split from Wiki Improvements)

I hope this will be an Integer (32/64 bits) like all other fields, so 32 bits useful? No, no, no --> anyting but Integer, in structs we should only consider fixed size variables as DWORD (aka: ULong). Otherwise, the struct-size is different, in the 32/64 compilers (a really bad idea, me thinks). Ad...

chmod (in 'ix systems, is: access control change) and: +x (means: add execute rights)
The same as: attr (command, in WIN/DOS)
This is OS stuff ... (nothing to do with programming itself)

Re: FreeBasic communication with Arduino logic error?

Anyway, I removed any communication back from the Arduino, and the lag has pretty much gone away. Have you tried with higher baudrate settings? (I never go below 19200, minimum) I've run my *very old Arduino* (pre Ono model) at speeds up to (and including) 115200 baud. The real HW communication is ...

Okay, first try FBC 64 results:

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

So, a function of the command shell in a 64 bit system can only handle 32 bit files. Strange? Well, I can't find "nm" in command-shell (cmd.exe) nor in C:\Windows\System32\... Seems to be a external utility ... (which can't be related directly to the shell itself). If you are running Linu...

Please people, stop hijacking this thread, for JK's array stuff (which has its own thread).

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

@dodicat,

seems to knock out the barrels bottom:
FBC 64 -gen gcc (no optimizer) = 1.25 Seconds
FBC 64 -gen gcc (-O 2) = 0.65 Seconds

No, nothing to do with memory, far more "going with the Time",
as opposed to "yesterday people" who are backwards oriented.

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

2.) I ran exhaustive tests on 32 bit (at least i hope so), there are still some problems with 64 bit code (e.g accessing passed z/wstring arrays in 64 bit still causes a GPF). So please compile for 32 bit when testing. This seems to me to indicate, that the priorities are "the wrong way around...

Re: namespace problem

The error message is not wrong, though some might split hairs over the difference between declaration versus definition. I think the term: definition , is ambiguous and better replaced with: implementation . (if in context with: declaration ) On definition : a #Define (comes to mind, straight away)...

Re: FreeBasic communication with Arduino logic error?

You can change the port any time you like, but the Arduino must be connected to the system (COM3 is default for Arduino, if not already used otherwise). I assume that you're using Windows (on Linux it would be a TTY device). "Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Device Manager" then open "...
