Re: FreeBASIC Discussion December 2017

Well known, easy to use and free : up to me the 3 mandatory reasons : 1- Coming from Lotus Notes/Domino world, FB seems to me close to LotusScript (structured basic), and before from family computers. You know the old ones you could program (c64 Ti99.., nowadays you would use a Raspi). Basic is the ...

Re: What to do about a lack of developers for the compiler?

Hi everybody ! Some very good questions are interesting me : How do we move forward? Has the design philosophy of freeBASIC changed? Are we willing/able to put in the effort to learn the current code so we can change it and if so, how do we even get started? I agree speedfixer opinion : be persisten...

Re: Currently inactive

I fell sad you leave, maybe I understand the reasons you mention, hard to accept it. I'm sure everyone will seek to compensate for your departure, its own way. With all my respect. Yours Zerglingly.

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

Doing some tests on my side as well, but I need to manage first of all with 100% ascending compatibility and new user's documentation this explaining why some new features are so poorly tested. Thanks for questions about 'Placement New' and UDT deallocations. LzLists code belongs to me (because LsLi...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

Added somes corrections in ZlistsEngine code :
this.BlindTag(LIST_DEL) in NewRoot (critical)
Deallocate( New(@this) List ) in destructor (flaged for freeing memory just before exiting instance, don't know if working)

Re: Static vectors hash list with user friendly easy syntax

Hello, Some corrections in code : Property List.NewRoot() As uByte pNode = AllowCake() : pFirstNode = pNode : pLastNode = pNode : bSeekMethod = 1 : uCount = 0 : uTag = 0 pFirstFIRSTNode = pNode : pLastLASTNode = pNode : pNode->Tag(uTag) = LIST_RES : pNode->ListData.sData = "": Return 1 End...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

I'm afraid I can't give an opinion on this code, the memory management I'm using seems to me very simplist compare to yours. I didn't expect to manage something like 'retro flat list' ! My idea about flat lists just was choosing the best moment. I may add a correction /precision to my previous post ...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

Well, I think we're doing our best considering the problem we're facing, so solution, of course,is not unique, you're right. In the code I post recently, there is only one flat list, I mean the computer doesn't see a hash list but a flat list that is made of all the cAllocate calls in chronological ...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

Moreover (last but not least), my point of view for a good optimization considering this specific problematic, should be to delay as long as possible memory fragmentation, because the number of implicit contiguous nodes is limited and should be used as much as possible to maximise fast parse on flat...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

Hi. Up to my opinion, the problem you meet with Redim Preserve deadly slow is very same the one you encounter with placement new when trying to have advantages of arrays and lists in same time and it is what I call "low-level fragmentation" : memory controler is executing something like a ...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

fxm, this doc by Parker is a very good starting point and I used this tuto for learning, for sure. List is flat, does not store datas just pointers (that's ok), works fine and you have to manage it C like. First looking forward for something simultaneously very rad, basic style, versatile and end-us...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

I can imagine many ideas but I don't know if one of these is good or not. I have seen some very good hints with hashtables and asm on the forum (I don't retrieve the post), but you are looking for array values not for hashtables as list items,... Perhaps you will have to define your own array UDT, s...

Re: Static vectors hash list with user friendly easy syntax

Thank you so much for have testing it :-) This code is 60%-120% slower compare to Python 2.7 with best tk libs. It is using at least 2-3 times more memor y.. This just a single test. No key compression algo here. Not so bad considering the perf of Python. But it is very versatile and is fully integr...

Re: Initatizing linked-list with array data looks bad

Hi Tourist Trap, This is just a "basic" opinion (you're welcome), not sure about the answer, I don't know how the compiler is doing the job, I think you know it far much better than I do. All you describe looks like as if arrays where managed as object's instances : when you redim or erase...
