Hey Guys

It's been a while since I've been on, as I've been very very busy lately. I'm not really making a return, but I am curious as to what I've been missing. Any new big projects? Major changes to development on FreeBASIC? I use FreeBASIC for things now and then still, and perhaps I'll post something int...

Swarm

Hey there, back from the dead - at least for a little bit. It's finals week, I just got sick and tired of studying and decided to troll around the forums, read some of the topics I've missed, and post a program I wrote a while ago. This is a simulation of a "flock" or "swarm" of individuals which al...

After reading cha0s' post as well, I've revised my ideas. I think for the most part what anonymous1337 says is a good idea. I have arguments for and against various points, but I guess ultimately, not being a developer, I have to concede that this might really be the best way to proceed - if possible.

Floating point numbers are capable of storing +/- infinity, and of course the only way to get that is division by 0. Instead of causing a processor fault or error like the old processors, the FPU simply sets a special bit pattern to indicate the invalidity of the variable. Then, when you try to disp...

Right. The point is that people's passwords are safe, even if their accounts aren't. So he can steal their accounts and post stuff as if it's from them, but he can't figure out what their passwords are to use them (in case they use the same password elsewhere... not that that's a particularly wise i...

This came as quite a shock, especially because of your plans for rapid prototyping and the like (I was looking forward to that). You'll be greatly missed, as any very active member of the community would be. I also looked up to you as a mentor in some respects, so for that reason alone I'll miss you...

Well, that's right. Vic's Tutorials were hosted on AOL for a long time. Vic's email address was also an AOL email address.


Embarrassing, yes, but factual.

These things should, if possible, be preserved for the community. They are a reminder of our heritage. All-Basic might be good, or ask Plasma for a Phatcode.net/Freebasic.net subdomain. Until then, everyone who can should download it and save it on their computer, so we have backups.

The point is that programmers not ready or willing to make the change to OOP will not have huge problems when OOP is fully implemented. Those of us who do make the change will, of course, but it won't change anything for those who don't want to change. Old code will still compile, etc. OOP is just a...

I'm not at home so I can't check now, but if the installer doesn't create an environment variable it probably should. I know some people like the installer not to mess with their system settings, but really, environment variables are such a small change and it could be really helpful. Anyways, it ca...

Re: example???

I realize I am (shudder) offering anonymous1337 an opportunity to point out how stupid I am for not RTM XD Yeah, it's wherever you installed your FreeBASIC installation, which is usually C:\Program Files\FreeBASIC\ (on Windows) and /usr/local/bin/fbc (on linux - although I assume you wouldn't be us...

This is the case, as far as I know, which is why I say with certainty that OOP will not change the language - we already have the framework, and it hasn't made any huge changes. FreeBASIC is still BASIC, albeit a modern one. And yeah, the C/C++ analogy was my thought also. C++ is still C, it's just ...

Good to know that you're using the latest version of fbc.


Of course, if it had been otherwise, anonymous1337 would have tracked you down and beat you to death with a six-foot metal rod. Or maybe just told you to start using 0.20.0. One or the other, no doubt.
