Hi dkl, Yes, I am using version 0.21.0 as Standalone (win32). I am using a version that I compiled yesterday. Therefore, I think that the ENVIRON check is done regardless of standalone or not. Here is the version information of the fbc I have. fbc -version FreeBASIC Compiler - Version 0.21.0 (11-11-...

Bypass compiler ENVIRON() check for fbFindBinFile()

Here is the situation: I use various compilers via a USB hard drive. At work the computers are locked down pretty good so you need administrative rights to install software, blah blah blah, so if my compiler doesn't run from the USB hard drive then I'm out of luck. I have always had trouble running ...

Looks like all that I needed to do was:

#include once "\crt\wchar.bi" ' wchar_t

This way I can keep the code using wchar_t. I am amazed at how easy it is to convert C code to FB. Much easier than any other BASIC that I've used.

Am I correct in assuming that the C construct "wchar_t" is the same as the built in FB datatype "wstring" ????

Yeah, I guess it will first come back to the primary discussion about whether the legacy QB syntax should be maintained or not. Personally, I agree with a previous poster who said that the QB features should be frozen now as a version 1.0 snapshot and then move ahead with FB only features from there...

The compiler source code is complex and unless the user has a very good grasp of compiler construction theory then it is very easy to get lost in it. The lack of comments and documentation certainly doesn't help. The casual programmer who wants to help by finding bugs in the compiler or implement ne...

...there should be a better documentation of the compilers inside workings, i couldn't make heads or tails from the code because i couldn't get the idea behind it. I could get the idea when i make the source a bedtime reading for the next three week, but that wont work for me and most people out th...
