Re: building fbc for Windows - for beginners by a beginner

hello integer
I am interested whether you succeeded or not.
note also that you could use another mingw distribution with different gcc-toolchain version, but I recommend that you use the /threads-win32/sjlj/ branch, as that is what coderJeff uses.

Re: FBC's Cairo clock example error

@dodicat nice clock, tested on macOS but I had to change #include once "cairo.bi" to #include once "cairo/cairo.bi" also, the fps and the pendulum behave strangely, the fps started at about 24 but after a while it got up to 40 to 60, however, if I click on the clock and keep the ...

Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions can be built. The resulting cairo.dll file is fully self-contained and does not d...

building fbc for Windows - for beginners by a beginner

Download a mingw distribution and setting up a bash shell The only solution that I found is by using msys2, note that in this example, we copy a mingw distribution that's not part of msys2, therefore, it's not intended to be updated by using pacman. I am assuming that msys2 will be installed in C:\...

Re: FreeBASIC-1.06.0-Win gcc-9.1

@coderJeff
thank you for taking the time for addressing this, I have the impression that it would take an awful lot of work to get the FB codebase to be complaint with the current gcc syntax and semantics, like they say, "the devil is in the details"

Re: FreeBASIC-1.06.0-Win gcc-9.1

yes, unfortunately, a compiler is very complicated and changing core compatibility issues could be very time consuming.

Re: FreeBASIC-1.06.0-Win gcc-9.1

What you have shown, srvaldez, is pushing the 'boat out' has not brought the roof down and the question must be asked why does gcc 5.2 seem to be carved in stone, the fbc 1.06 release was a golden opportunity to 'up the stakes'; not to version 9 but something greater than version 5. I don't know th...

Re: Creating (scientific) plots via gnuplot

impressive dodicat :-)
however, if you zoom in with the scroll button, there places where the image flickers a lot, like it flips from one size to the other without deciding what size to settle on.
btw, 60 fps on my 10 year ol Mac :-)

-strip used to be called by default, but for some reason, something changed in the recent Git repo.
you can of course see all the command options with: fbc -h

@deltarho[1859]
the strip command is not needed, however, for some reason it's not stripped automatically, but you can pass -strip on the compile command and it will strip the exe.

Re: FreeBASIC-1.06.0-Win gcc-9.1

@developers
in this build, the executables are not stripped automatically, even if the strip command is added to the bin directory, is there a solution?

Re: FreeBASIC-1.06.0-Win gcc-9.1

@deltarho[1859]
please add the strip command into the respective win32 and win64 folder in the bin directory, hopefully that will work.
if fbc does not invoke the strip command automatically, then do it manually and see if it works, e.g. strip myprogram.exe

Re: FreeBASIC-1.06.0-Win gcc-9.1

@marcov
believe it or not, I was wondering whether or not the strip command should be included in the standalone distribution, it's possible that the absence of the strip command is the culprit.
@deltarho[1859]
let me check the dependencies of the strip command so I can post a link to it for you.
