Re: Dream of sugar

@oyster. As you are looking for a "ForEach" like feature, I suggest you have a look to lzle project on wich I may do some support and evolutions. About multi dimensional operators on arrays, lzae project (wip) is targeting instructions to help users designing their own routines between arr...

Re: Gas64 (no more use of gcc, only gas) WDS / LNX

Hello SARG, I did some tests because the project seemed really interesting to me. As because of my way of programming I use the lists a lot (this allows me to save time on management applications), the idea of ​​doing without gcc is nice. If I may, I will have a few comments: No significant speed di...

Re: Installing FreeBasic with Scoop on Windows

There were historical issues of contention between GPLV2 and V3 (https://lwn.net/Articles/343608/), what about? Issues solved? There are really "weird" things in V3 : as I see it the author seems to give up the right to freely distribute his own code himself. Thus, the code can be distribu...

Re: Very different result

@Nov79 (ps a little philosophy instead coding). "I admit that I feel really lost when I come to Free Basic and I want to limit myself to a small subset only." But that's how most people who use FB do! The important thing is not to learn everything, but to have varied opportunities later wh...

Re: Very different result

Hello Nov79. What I like about FB is its versatility in terms of syntax and programming style. You have the possibility of a syntax close to c, directly c, integrate an assembler syntax, prefer an object style, make macros, or try to define your own keywords (an approach that I tried with lzle) . Wi...

Re: Ptr to an array? (Was: Possible to ReDim with only a ptr?)

@mrToad. I thank you for your appreciation. Probing for practicality seems to me a funny but pretty good description for some of my way. I m sure there is not a single way for doing code you expect. Till you are friendly with pointers, 1.08 might be of help. For personnal and prof reasons I have few...

Re: Ptr to an array? (Was: Possible to ReDim with only a ptr?)

@mrToad. I understand it is just curiosity, but I don t understand precisely what could be a goal doing this. More speed ? Simpler syntax ? Different feature ? The meaning or purpose of the suggested syntax, even though invalid, is unclear to me. (addendum : if your goal is to parse an array with fo...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I think it might be possible to implement a specific prefix for features that use preprocessor specifications, which from the user's point of view could be manipulated a bit like a global object (pp_ARRAY, pp_VIDEO, and so on, a syntax close to pp.ARRAY, and so on). This would perhaps bring a dimens...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I m just watching around the ideas. Considering the idea seeing the preprocessor as an object. Considering the idea the linker could be seen as a conceptual layer in its own rights... I see these as possibilities. My idea the linker layer outside the Fb core, nevertheless inside the ecosystem.

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I think fxm's solution shall be seen as strictly technical meaning not conceptual nor standing for or against JK proposal. I just see it as a technical opening. @Mr Swiss : indeed I agree your point of view about implementation.

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

I suppose anyone could use the preprocessor to define new keywords extensions this way. If so, perhaps should be used a common naming convention using aliases, ex : pp_ARRAY (or anything else standing for every pre-processor overrides) ? Because these will actually behaves differently and have diffe...

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

@andy. Sorry about my epidermic reaction.. As I said previously UDK should be a true conceptual advance. I shortly went to your link. I m not sure gforth stands out from object programming. Till you can program a kwd using oop, you still fall back into oop and you just dedigned an extension using a ...

Re: How to add new features? (syntax, user API)

I m a genious I know, my ideas whenever not formulated in my mind were already covered by GPL V3 , how could I imagine it ? Seriously again, probably not the same UDKs I had in mind whenever this idea was not yet fixed. This reminds me on the "round corners" on smartphones. How about my li...
