Re: Is possible to get rid of the entire GCC thing?

I perfectly understand your thoughts. It would indeed be a good idea to reduce the confusion, and concentrate on one installation that really works. The question is: which one? C compilers tend to be big behemoths nowadays. Should we pick one that is relatively small, but is very slow? Or the other ...

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

For me, the forum was down the last 2 or 3 days. Now I get a 503 every now and then. Users browsing this forum: badidea, jj2007 and 35 guests looks almost normal. I've always wondered who these "guests" are - real persons or bots?

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

The array.insert() syntax looks oop, while array(insert, args) looks odd. What about
ArrayInsert()
AudioOpen()
AudioPlay()
NetConnect()
NetTransmit()
etc? I would not be worried about namespace problems as long as it is consistent and Google doesn't find hits for FreeBasic ArrayInsert etc...

Re: CGUI function

What about posting a complete source, so that we can actually see (in the just-in-time debugger) where it segfaults, and why?

Use a bitmap of about 800 X 600, 32 or 24 bits depth
With a 800x600 full colour bitmap, it takes a few seconds with Gas but ages with Gcc. The resulting exe is 7.46 MB for Gas but only 1.37MB for Gcc. Can it be that Gcc optimises for size?

It took nearly ten years for the logic choice, lazarus, to become the actual default choice for users What is Lazarus? The problem is that the console vs gui is not a black-white difference. Even on Windows GUI apps can open consoles. Yes. Most of my GUI apps use -subsystem:console until they have ...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

It was always fb's intent to work on multiple platforms. So, yes, if interested in a particular target only, this looks like madness. This is indeed a challenge, I understand that. Windows is difficult enough, Linux with its multiple flavours must be worse (I've never tried "it" seriously...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I can't figure out your objective presenting it this way. Jeff, I do not have any stakes here. I have my own Basic dialect, definitely not meant for public use (it's assembler), and I don't need FB. But I have a lot of sympathy for FreeBasic. There is a lot of goodwill here, and a lot of enthusiasm...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

Misquoted or not, Dykstra's comments means no BASIC will ever be a language taught in mainstream education, however powerful it is, unless a VERY complete package can be brought to the table. I love misquoting Dykstra's comment using C++ instead of Basic. IMHO FB's problem is not that it's BASIC bu...

Re: YouTube increases FreeBASIC performance

Certain browsers allow YouTube to set the internal resolution of the timer to a lower value, as discussed here .

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

Funny! Are you sure you googled for "asynchronous primitives?" Yes. I even corrected your spelling error - but I used quotes, i.e. I did a phrase search using "intrinsic asynchronous primitives" Those that need those things are already using them in other languages, and have no ...
