Re: END/STOP and destructors

Hi, With Windows: Question: Why put a END/STOP/SYSTEM at the end of the code ? It is best not to put anything at all ! Maybe to explicitly pass the returncode / errorcode to the OS? :) BTW: System, Stop and End produce all the same code (FBCx64 /WIN): mov ecx, 0 ' the "0" can be set by (re...

Re: how to set the dates?

hi. @Badidea: "Sunday-08-April-2018 22-14-36 "-" for time is a bit weird." Not, if you want the output as part of a file name :) @mr Swiss Speed might be an issue if you ask maybe 100 times per second for the current DateTime. As soon as you write to Screen or a file, the writing...

Re: How can I return a value using a MACRO?

Hi, Thank you all for the answers. But I think my question was too less precise. My "function-macro" (let us call it "change_it()" would consist of a couple of lines, with IFs and ELSEs (NOT #if !) and a call to a real function, so that one-liners won´t work. The result can not b...

How can I return a value using a MACRO?

Hi, I didn´t find a way to make a MACRO call to look/work like a function. The idea is from the CHM reference for va_arg: *** variable =va_arg ( argument_list, datatype ) Description The va_arg MACRO allows the use of a variable number of arguments within a function. va_arg returns the current argum...

Re: Implementing a simple plug-in architecture

Hi Paul, well done. Don´t bother about LUA etc.; this wasn´t your aim, I think. The code is easily readable, and your comments simply are excellent. For those who are a bit afraid of handling DLLs, a few lines of code which transform your DLL-Sources into testable EXEs. Just append the code to your ...

Re: 32/64 bit compiler issue

Hi, no idea about the reason, but: On my PC prog#2 crashes with x32 as well as with x64, both FB 1.05/Win But: I found a "magic number", so others don´t need to try out: 26170 (last good one), 26171 (and above: crash) And: it is NO matter of memory; tried in VM with 2 to 8 GB, and even exp...

Hi Gablea, At first glance, I thought you only have 512 KILO bytes. No chance, I thought. But then I re-read your post. 512 MB / machine. Fine. The Best Solution: try to install OS/2 32 Bit. It runs several DOS instances with really good performance, and: stable. but... where to get it these days? A...

Hi Chung, I like your approach to simplify GUI programming. If you agree, I (or others) will use your code, modify and maybe in some years re-publish it :) Question: Is there any _easy to understand_ DLL / LIB for displaying pictures with win64 that could be used instead of the "old" JPG D...
