Re: Wiki improvements

Yes, it seems interesting as an article on FreeBasic, especially if the proposed code is multi-platform and fully written in FB. Can you output something? My idea was something like that: https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=24907&p=222768&hilit=drag#p222768 Not the same ...

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

this maxima is heavy version of wxPython..right? Hi aurelVZAB, the Maxima engine itself is something very solid. The front-end maybe is related to wxPython, so the name of wxMaxima for the version with the GUI. I don't use any other versions anyway. But you are right, wxMaxima can feel slow, and ma...

Re: Wiki improvements

I am still waiting for any article proposed by users: - either provided already written (perhaps only a final formatting to be done for a better integration with the existing articles), - or provided in the form of a list of references to posts/topics with enough material to be able, after synthesi...

Re: When will we have a new challenge :)

Hello Tourist Trap. I want to enjoy a little time to share my feelings. I am not a c developer, and coding time is a little behind me (at the professional level). But from my past experience in IT service company, I kept the taste for design. At that time, creating an index was a right click on the...

Re: Weird error messages when macros/defines in namespace

- Error: error 120 - Proposal: Expected period ('.') Ok. That makes sense. It can be confusing until we know it. For example in this case: namespace V '... end namespace '... #define V ' error 120: Expected period ('.') 'we may not see that a namespace had been defined previously Anyway, for me it'...

Re: Weird error messages when macros/defines in namespace

Everything is in the documentation: ... So your example above is preprocessed as following: namespace H end namespace ? ? H. ? H. ? Oh thanks. I thought that Namespaces were scoping things. But for that one the message doesn't make too much sense: namespace V #define V ' error 120: Expected period ...

Weird error messages when macros/defines in namespace

Hello, I really tried to figure out how we are supposed to interpret this: namespace H #define V ? #macro U V #endMacro #macro H 'error 120: Expected period ('.') in '#macro H' '... #endMacro end namespace U 'ok V 'ok H.U 'error 14: Expected identifier, found '?' in 'H.U' H.V 'error 14: Expected ide...

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

gnuplot does quite well in choosing default values like x and y range and other options to make it easy to use, what I would like to have is the plot functionality of Mathematica in a library, where you can can make a 3d-plot with a simple command like Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2],{x,-3,3}, {y,-2,2}] I use ...

Re: fawlty/idl programming language

my only complaint is that you can't just embed the functionality into a FB program, if only there were a static library that one could use in ones programs. Scilab has good capabilities for being controled from the command line it seems. Maybe worth a try. I wonder if we could get XCAS do (and retu...

As far as I know there is plenty of good features that are empowering freebasic on the option 1 basis (simple include file). For example we can take DJ.Peters top quality optional additions like SNC (for networking), and many others as we know. For what I know, it never required a pull request in th...

Re: How FB supports Sub-Type Polymorphism, demonstrated by Emulation very Close to Real Operating

Thanks fxm!

It reminds me of the tutorial by rdc or maybe someone else that was precisely introducing OOP by emulation from a procedural code (in the documentation's tutorials). I used to love this approach. I will try to run your examples and study this great work you did.
