Re: Essentially, Leaving the Community.

I'd probably revise the reason that I'm inactive. Now, it's more that I'm less interested in BASIC and more interested in general types of problem solving, particularly in business. I still don't know what to do as an outlet for art and expression. Not much time for that anymore :( I'm doing well en...

Re: Java & FreeBasic

There is Rust if you want something low-level, Python if you want support on pretty much every embedded device these days (used to be C, but Python seems to be most popular now). Java is used at the enterprise scale by plenty of organizations. It gets the job done. I very highly doubt Oracle would e...

Re: BASIC was meant to be easy to learn, read and understand

My personal take is that the principles of "object-oriented design" are cooler than "object-oriented programming". By that, I mean I care about things like SOLID more than I do the semantics of OOP languages.

Re: Can Python be written in FreeBASIC?

Yes visual studio does have a very powerful debugger and you can recompile sections of code while it's still running. Replace running code. I don't know of any other debugger that can do that. But a debugger isn't what I was talking about with qb. Intermediate mode is not just about inspecting vari...

Re: Can Python be written in FreeBASIC?

QuickBasic and QBasic have an interactive mode that's very powerful, and you could even stop a program's execution and then go inspect variables by running commands in that window. A neat concept. Interpreters do have their place. You can do this in pretty much any language with a decent debugger, ...

Re: Can Python be written in FreeBASIC?

Isn't that illegal? This is a terrible way to phrase it. No it is not illegal. Nowhere is it illegal. Does it violate the PB EULA, possibly. But that does not make it "illegal". I am sorry to have used this phrase: I'm not all too educated in that area (I didn't know that most copyright l...

Re: How to 'shade' a pixel FAST?

All I can think of is pre-computing the shade value and the RGB bytes each change as opposed to computing them constantly. Everything I've come up with that's fast either requires this or will only work on inputs that are powers of two or shades of gray... Once you get into the realm of pre-caching ...

Re: What can't be written in FreeBASIC?

If you have a basic class in systems and microprocessors first, then BASIC makes very little sense and you generally won't prefer it over other languages. Interesting view. I myself did start with the simple old microprocessors and always saw BASIC as a natural direct extension of Assembler languag...

Re: What can't be written in FreeBASIC?

If you find C, C++, Java, Python, Haskell, Scala, LISP, etc. more difficult than FreeBASIC, that might reflect your own personal attributes as a programmer. It reflects my attributes as an old time self taught part time hobby programmer. I would love to have the skills of a professional C++ program...

Re: What can't be written in FreeBASIC?

All that being said, I'd like to write a web browser and HTML, CSS and JS compilers in FreeBASIC and then re-implement them in various other languages to compare. That would be fun.

Re: What can't be written in FreeBASIC?

Some thoughts after spying on this thread for a bit: If your programming language supports basic constructs from Turing computation or lambda calculus, it is able to compute any computable function. So when someone asks "Why would you use another programming language? This one can do everything...

Re: Interfacing to Tumblr

I don't understand. Do you want to do this using FreeBASIC? Get a decent browser like Google Chrome. Go to your resources panel. You'll be able to find the image as a resource on the page and save it someplace then set it as your desktop background manually.

Re: FreeBASIC.net forum CSS (Last Updated 1/16)

... it's going to take me a little playing around to find a color scheme that works better for this forum)... Hello anonymous1337, thanks for feedback. Why not having many themes avaiable, and so testable, as was the case in the past if I'm not wrong? I'm not a forum admin. I just hack at the site ...
