Re: Resignation

Well, it looks like mrswiss won the battle and the war. The reason I do not post any more code is because of mrswiss. I am still interested in FreeBASIC, but I just look at what is posted these days. I guess mrswiss has free reign to find somebody else to bring to submission, by whatever means are n...

Re: my best effort

CAM - Computer Aided Manufacturing I am not a real big fan of CAD, I am an old flatus, that still prefers a couple of triangles, pencils, dividers, drawing paper, and all the other hand held tools to get the job done. I still think that the design aspect is still an art form that provides for the ex...

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

After doing some more Freebasic 32bit and 64bit, on a fresh install of the Raspberry Pi Desktop (PC), FreeBasic does not like the Raspberry Pi Desktop (PC) OS. I am not sure why FreeBasic is not installing correctly, some Freebasic install guru will have to figure that one out. Time to move on.

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

After doing a few more test compiles, something is still wrong. Sometimes I get an error free compile, and at other times, it shows that I am missing some libs, which I know I installed. I guess it is time to re-install the OS, and start from scratch. Propbably get back to this tomorow.

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

So, I went ahead and did a 'sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib', and now it is compiling without any errors. Now the question is, since I have both 32bit and 64bit installed, which one is being compiled, 32 or 64. The gcc-multilib is for the 32bit version, I guess I am now getting 32bit compiles, I t...

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

Before this gets to be very confusing, an explanation. Raspberry Pi has two OSs, one for the small board, which runs on an ARM, and the Raspberry Pi Desktop, which runs on a PC or a MAC computer. I am having the problem with the PC Desktop version. The Raspberry Pi Desktop version was just upgraded,...

Re: Latest FBC install on Debian

I am using Geany as the IDE to work with FreeBasic. But, I do get the same results when I use the command line for implimenting FBC. I have never seen this problem before. One more note, I did install both the 32bit and the 64bit versions. I have done this before on another machine without any probl...

Latest FBC install on Debian

I just installed FreeBasic on my Raspberry Pi Desktop setup and FBC is having a problem finding -lgcc. Yes, the desktop has the latest gcc installed. About three months ago I had FreeBasic installed on another Raspberry Pi Desktop, and on that computer fbc seems to be running just fine. I wonder if ...

Re: 32bit TSR

For those of you who have not played with DOS recently, TSR - Terminate and Stay Resident. In order to have something running in the background, you would need a multitasking program.

Re: New version?

Although the Raspberry Pi can be used as a cheap computer I think a cheap laptop would be better value. I see the value of the Raspberry Pi in the ability to use it in simple hardware projects. What is your dollar value of a cheap laptop? I think that most every where else, you can pick up a Raspbe...

Re: FreeBASIC and the Raspberry Pi ?

@BasicCoder2 WOW, I am impressed, you are way more ambitious than I am. In your cart configuration, it seems that you could replace the lap top with an RPi, and run it headless. Also, did you ever think about adding an IR component, so you could use a TV remote control to conviently move your cart a...

Re: FreeBASIC and the Raspberry Pi ?

I was going to use the RPi to replace the Arduino controlling my robot with the idea of being able to do all the code in the one language, FreeBASIC. As you have found out, there is a very limited amount of people that are using freeBasic with the Raspberry Pi. The main push for the RPi is Python, ...

Re: FreeBASIC access to Rpi GPIO pins

What I'd suggest you do is get hold of my wiringPi librarys and look at the sources. It will have all you need - as well as an easy way to access the GPIO pins from a C program. Start here: https://projects.drogon.net/raspberry-pi/wiringpi/ Or fast forward to the code here: https://projects.drogon....

Re: FreeBASIC and the Raspberry Pi ?

When I use the screenres command what should type in the geany.conf file to prevent the terminal window also appearing?
I do the quick and dirty, add -s gui to the compile command.
