Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

The build machine is working again and new builds were already uploaded containing the latest changes in fbc by coderJeff and in the documentation (mostly) by fxm. As usual, find them at http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/builds/

Re: After Ctl+Alt+Delete is pressed, continous Alt key is sent

Probably because GDI is usually considerably slower than DirectX/OpenGL. I don't know however, how that influences the speed of FB's gfxlib2. Did anyone do some benchmarks of the different rendering backends?

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Maybe you noticed that my nightly builds weren't updated recently. I just wanted to note that the problem is known (broken internet connection) and I'm on it (but it will probably take a while). I'll update this post when the issue is resolved. Sorry for any inconvenienc...

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

Fullscreen mode is usually exclusive. Recommended approach is to create a borderless display-sized window. Note that your rendering code has to support different display resolutions in that case, but that should be the case anyway if its good code. Also note that you'll have to include a dpi manifes...

While X11 supports multiple monitors, FreeBasic unfortunately does not. You'll need some hacky solution to use multiple monitors with FB's gfxlib2.

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

The last version of the FB NPoS has almost all the same functions as the windows version (apart from the way it shows items on the screen) and a few modern functions that are yet to be implements. Ok, I didn't know that you have progressed on the FB implementation already that far, although I remem...

Re: Truncate a file

There's such a function in the CRT, which you can use (and is included in every FB binary anyway, so doesn't cause any bloat or additional dependencies). See ftruncate (or chsize on windows).

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

Adding abstraction layers (like Mono/.NET, or a web interface) would increase portability, but it would also bloat the software, and increase hardware requirements. The performance impact by .NET is usually neglectable - especially if a Windows + .NET version already exists and seems to be working ...

Re: Sourceforge vs. GetHub Hosting

I also Bitbucket, but the free version. A big advantage is that it allows to have private repositories, that only you (up to a few additional users, if you want) can see. If you want to make code public GitHub is usually better. As we're talking about alternatives: you might also consider GitLab. It...

I have looked at moving the .net app to Mono but becuase I use OPoS to communcate to the Printers, cash drawer and scanners Mono does not like it (last time I tried to port it over I had over 2,000 error messages) after looking on the Mono website they do not have full support for the VB language (...

Re: 32 bit TSR in FreeBasic (yes, it worked, in the end)

If your POS application is currently written in .NET haven't you tried to port it to Linux using Mono or .NET core? If you're using WinForms then you can even keep the UI code if you decide to go with Mono. Rewriting your whole application from scratch in FreeBasic/C/C++ doesn't really make sense IM...

Re: Sourceforge vs. GetHub Hosting

Mostly dependes on which VCS you want to use. If you are used to SVN and want to keep using it then you have to use SourceForge. If you want to use GIT you can use both, but GitHub is probably the more popuplar one for new projects. I like GitHub because it has a more leightweight interface and no a...

Re: Bug fix for debugging lines inside include files

btw, to create a similar diff to the one I created previously you just need to do these simple steps: 1. install git: https://git-scm.com/ 2. clone the FB repository; run "git clone https://github.com/freebasic/fbc.git" 3. <do your changes in the cloned repo> 4. create the diff with "...
