Re: It's a long way

. BasicCoder2, how do we get a message to someone real at Google... "Hey Google! How about a translator for source code whose variable names, labels, and comments are written in a different language from our native language... (people languages)? You folks must already have an internal tool for...

Re: It's a long way

. Please, MrSwiss... it sounds to me like this is just a misunderstanding. I thought that Tourist Trap was only telling us that he would be of very little help if someone were to ask him to aid in documenting, a very technical project, where the discussion of the documentation was only in English. I...

Re: Treasures lost or sleeping in old discussions

. I'm with Roland on this one!!! I think we should probably start a new forum specifically for: "Does anyone have a copy of .... ?" Just starting at the very beginning of Tourist Trap's "the big review"... almost every post by 1000101 included a download link to his code - and th...

Re: Rewriting code from scratch

. It's just the same as everything else that has a creative process... it's a *process*... and the process gets in the way of the process itself. It follows the theory that every moment of decision is a *cusp* in time. If I choose left, the future is left-oriented. If I choose to use doubles in the ...

Re: Binary data visualization with OpenGL

. Interesting... I guess you inspected the binary files to figure out where the location of the data was that was being rendered, so that you could tell "what is what" in the image. Might be even more interesting to have the program inspect the data while it was reading it and create a key...

Re: WinFBE FreeBASIC Editor for Windows (Updated April 19, 2018)

.
Is there a way to get the actual fbc.exe compiler command line that WinFBE is generating to compile my program?

I don't think there is an existing option anywhere for that is there?

Thanks!

Re: WinFBE FreeBASIC Editor for Windows (Updated April 19, 2018)

. kcvinu, WinFBE's autocomplete is not intellisense... WinFBE will autocomplete a block structure for you... type: DO<enter> ...and an indented blank line and the closing "LOOP" gets entered automatically for you, etc. It will also show you a parameter list for built-in FB functions as you...

Re: TYPEs with nested arrays of TYPEs - size?

Aargh!!! I've been over-allocating every array I've ever defined in FB! I'd rather just learn everything I ever needed at once... instead of learning something new every day! [grin]
Thanks guys!

TYPEs with nested arrays of TYPEs - size?

. My first thought would be that the x2 TYPE would be twice as big as the abc TYPE... instead, there are an extra 48 bytes in the x2 array type. And the number of extra bytes grows with the size of the child array. Where is the overhead in the x2 TYPE coming from... array descriptors, padding, combi...
