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()

Sure, it's doable. And already realized.


I meant to say it is also possible for general (not developed for a single target) to do this. We are working on it too.

Re: How to translate C headers contain gcc __attribute__?

I have an ESP8266; I should try. I thought about that, but dropped that idea. FB is a language with more than 400 keywords. Far too much for a 256 kB setting (ESP8266-1, half of the memory left for the user). Ie. you'll have to drop all grafic features. But you've to add WiFi features. You'll end u...

Re: Why did you choose FreeBASIC?

I'm not going to say much about the subject, but as something to think about: would we really have had this discussion if I had used C/C++ as example language? The problem however with C as example for language development is that it stopped evolving in the late seventies on the state of development...
