Re: New array features

I did some very few test yesterday before posting with any Ptr and VarPtr and they were unsuccessful. I don't bother overloading or static (in the context). A way (faster) to get rid of theses ugly select in parsers avoiding macros would interest me. However, I did not go very far in my investigatio...

Re: New array features

Well, I'm going on something done quickly today, it's not functional, it's just a first translation in TypeDef what could give my way of seeing the thing, with my own technical limits of course. It's a little more concrete and it allows to clarify a little even if there is still a lot of technical w...

Re: Change string to ordered index ?

MrSwiss, 1. There was indeed a Beta 0.991 (not archived) (there is no Beta 1.00 yet, therefore there was an Alpha 1.00) 2. I do not pretend the SizeOf(Integer) is same in 32 & 64, just it is transparent to user in the intended use of the software The tool has been designed to prevent programmer ...

Re: Change string to ordered index ?

NOTE & precision : Till 0.991 release, the actual source of a bug that was incorrectly corrected by the change from Integer to uLong and that induces a different operation in 32 and 64 bits had been identified: it was actually an overrun on a zstring ptr . The move from Integer to uLong did not...

Re: Change string to ordered index ?

Almost all the features added so far were thought of at the design stage, which explains their integration. Neither the manipulation nor the complexity of the basic instruction set has been impacted. On the other hand, the more advanced functionalities add a complexity of use which is related to the...

Re: Change string to ordered index ?

Ok, got it. Tool originally designed to work with strings, not UDT as records and Integer were almost designed for internal countdown (or pointers casting,.., afterward) better than for datas. Indeed ,you're right till you consider udt as 'records', integer in types should be turned to uLong, (if so...

Re: New array features

@Tourist Trap. There are several severe technical difficulties to foresee: how to standardize the access to the data of the table? What syntax for functions? How to run the same syntax on different types of data without having to include a micro-runtime? And so on. In the case of an instruction set ...

Re: New array features

I will not rate an appreciation on the technical side. I think it is fine if we can have different functionality and logics because they will be complementary. A set of basic instructions provides a methodology while a function allows the execution speed and a dense coding. I do not know when or if ...

Re: Best Implementation for Set of Elements that I manually change

Hi JohnM This one is not the best implementation (your specifications does ot need keys, just indices) Much slower(*), consummes memory and requires a library (https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26533), BETA state. Depending on what you expect to do you might appreciate using it...

Re: When will we have a new challenge :)

Hello Tourist Trap. I want to enjoy a little time to share my feelings. I am not a c developer, and coding time is a little behind me (at the professional level). But from my past experience in IT service company, I kept the taste for design. At that time, creating an index was a right click on the ...

Re: New array features

@fxm : Thanks a lot . I now have a better idea of how I perhaps could proceed. I'll make some try using integer Ptr. @speedfixer : about implementation. You're right. For years, I rather tried to guess how the underlying treatments were organized rather than looking at the solutions. A huge waste of...
