If you see all the code that goes into simply making a window, let alone handling controls, you can clearly see why such an editor has never been made. It is a massive undertaking. Microsoft spends millions of dollars and several years with dozens of coders to produce marginally-working GUI editors....

Writing text to the console when a graphics window is open?

Can this be done with FBGFX active? PRINT directs to the gc when FBGFX is active, so that's out. The win32 API is probably the only way to do it. Does anyone have a working example?

This is what we were talking about on IRC. Version control when it comes to libraries can be a real pain in the tail. Some libraries' headers do not get along with each other, as noted in the bass.bi/freeimage.bi conflict, as one example. It would be much better to have individual maintainers for th...

OK minor update...it seems that the original freeimage header is the actual culprit. It cannot coexist with with wingdi due to name collision. It was clearly not written for win32 in mind and blatantly violates the system namespace. Was this on purpose? Who knows...but wouldn't put it past the minds...

I found that bass.bi includes wtypes, which creates a conflict. I've since then gone on to rewrite the freeimage header. Now I just have to find the dll that corresponds with the import library. Version control, as we've been speaking about on the IRC channel, is a huge issue that needs to be resolv...

FreeBSD, sh (user) and csh (root). So it's not too far removed from OS X. Some Linux distros come with bash as default though.

i don't use OS X so I have no idea, but it's certainly not default here. It would have been much less foolish to just make it an ordinary application than to go the "l33t h4x0r" route and make it in shell script. Not everyone uses bash, and even fewer use korn. I don't know about the poor Mac users ...

I said it on another forum and got the admin all Π$/- off, but I'll say it here too...BaCon is lame. It requires that you have a specific shell on your system (Korn or Bash). That is the epitome of suck. if not for that one little detail (details are EVERYTHING), then this would most likely rule.

If it takes 10 minutes to compile your FB program, you're doing something horribly wrong. 10 minutes for something coded using gcc is not uncommon, but FB? Come on.
