Re: native At&t Assembly emitter

The world of the barebones is very diverse If i understand you correctly, you want to work and compile on an embedded system or a thin client. But why dont you use a normal workstation/notebook to do that? To test the program you can use than your embedded system. You also could use a VM with the l...

Re: File generation and writing, very slow

And never use position arguments if the writes are sequential. Besides the write() that every put does, that adds a lseek.

Re: List of FreeBASIC GUI libraries/frameworks

Freepascal (and Lazarus) uses register; calling convention by default, not cdecl, but the GO guys could have hacked their copy of course.

Re: GW-BASIC is open source now

Yeah today folks use javascript frameworks to crank out apps for phones and tablets and also desktops. Things like Electron have become the modern equivalent of VB6. Everyone shudders a bit at the thought of writing all the logic in javascript and shipping the complete Chrome OS--I mean browser-- w...

Re: FreeBASIC vs QB64

I don't see any problems with anything systemctl has posted here. This forum is pretty quiet, so traffic is welcome. It's not like it's off topic really. IMHO offtopicness or not is not dependent on forum busy-ness. I don't mind comparisons questions myself, but not if they are very open, extremely...

Re: FreeBASIC vs QB64

"compile to C(++)" is not a magic incantation. It matters what C++ you generate.

To get speed you really need to generate fairly lowlevel C++.

Re: FreeBasic IDE-poseidonFB(Update 2020.05.27)

Indeed, so I need rip the hhk or hhc from the CHM and check the if keyword is existed in them, then use HtmlHelp function. Yes. Currently we (as in Lazarus and Free Pascal's textmode IDE) also emulate the viewer (for cross platform reasons), but IMHO the quality is bad. I rather use the windows vie...

Re: 15 years of freeBASIC forum?

My first programming language was C=64, an early Micro Soft Basic (V2) interpreter. It is also not a language that I would use now, but it helped me grow through my first stages of being a programmer. Even if I had heavier tools, that wouldn't have made much of a difference. After a while you just r...

Re: FreeBasic IDE-poseidonFB(Update 2020.05.27)

All I done was looking for the example code about HtmlHelp, and turn it to D code and using in poseidonFB, basically I think the MSDN tell me: "NULL indicates that the help window has not yet been created.", so if the return value is null, try searching other paths...... But things aren't...

Re: Windows API: Open Dialog to Browse for a File

Just kidding - I'm not a Windows XP user any more. Unless I need to run an old 16-bit program in my VM for which I have the XP license only, of course. My main OS is Win7-64, my kids are using Win10 and I see lots of good reasons to stay away from that crap. No offense taken, I'm not always subtle ...

Re: FreeBasic IDE-poseidonFB(Update 2020.05.27)

I'm interested how you do this, at least if you search multiple CHMs via winapi calls. Do you search index or fulltext search? I've studied on this in the past, and the only solution I found was to generate a master CHM that refers all slave CHMs (the chms you have registered), and then open that on...

Re: Windows API: Open Dialog to Browse for a File

Note that the comdlg way is deprecated, and the current recommended way is over IFileDialog. Yes, that's a way to force Windows XP users to upgrade their OS. The old version will work another century, though. Not necessarily. If you wrap functions like the example shows you can actually do a window...

The note is visible e.g. if you pull up MSDN for getopenfilename()
