Re: How many people actually use FreeBasic?

Addendum. ForEach is an iterator, a syntax implementation wich is dedicated to multi-values, wich means mainly arrays and lists. ps : I'm not sure that a generic, global-oriented iterator would be the best choice now because lists and tables may have their own unique characteristics at a functional ...

Re: How many people actually use FreeBasic?

@oyster. It was not my goal! On the contrary, go to the link (viewtopic.php? F = 8 & t = 26533) and create a lzle.bi file by copy-pasting in the 3 parts of the source code. Then in your source code add an #Include once "PathName \ LZLE.bi". Instead of using the following syntax: ForEac...

Re: How many people actually use FreeBasic?

@oyster "there are "for each" in vb, I don't know when it will be in fb". Yes indeed. You can, however, work around the problem using lzle (https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26533): iterators are fast and versatile enought for most purposes but it requires you t...

Re: TinyDialog a simple Windows and Linux user interface.

You may use fbc64 for main application, save default values in a file, use Chain to transfert control to a 32 bit interface program dedicated to Tiny Dialog which is loading file and saving new values, then exiting the 32 bit program interface. As chain resume control to 64 bits application, just lo...

Re: Get String Characters 4x Faster than Mid()

@fxm. Simple at first sight, not so easy to understand, it's more clear for me now. Thank you for the technical precisions.

Re: Get String Characters 4x Faster than Mid()

"you can not reason as a name permutation because it was as if the other alias names were also implicitly permuted:" I missed the point. I thought it nevertheless interesting (or easiest) to reason as a "name"(*) permutation (* :high level not low level) till I do not forget the ...

Re: Get String Characters 4x Faster than Mid()

@fxm. I actually made a confusion: I assimilated the name of the variable as it is identified by the programmer to the address of the variable. From the programmer's point of view, everything happens as if var1 becomes var2 and vice versa but and as you pointed out, the addresses of var1 and var2 ar...

Re: Get String Characters 4x Faster than Mid()

I think values are exchanged byref , perhaps like a resident (?) translation. This allow to swap zstrings of different size neither than getting an horrible crash nor than getting a slowdown as if values had to be reallocated. When using Mid, memory managment is embedded. Swap look likes a pretty ea...

@ Mr Swiss "Swap just does, what it is expected to do (no more, no less):" => Yes thrue Swap var_type1, var_type2 (var_type(n) means: any FB intrinsic data-type) => Yes thrue the values held by any var_type(n) are simply exchanged ... => Fake ! this is just what it look likes but compiler ...

A related post here : https://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26616 and fxm's explanations. I discovered there were different assignment level and how to access them. dodicat wrote "looks like the sub keeps the literal addresses on the stack ... Which probably means that you can onl...

Re: Nominations for Forum Moderators

My favourites choices would be : St_W (for the frankness of the remarks), fxm (for didactical precision), and.. coderJeff (for common sense and FreeBASIC Discussion December 2017). My respectful greetings to everyone here. I do not wish to apply despite the immense hopes it could arouse.
