Re: Freebasic v's C# code execution speed ?

Id like to know how fast the for next loops are and other simple commands like Print "hello" What does that have to do with language? That just jumps directly to the system console output routine? Which in 9 out of 10 languages/platforms will lead to you to the same C run time library.

Re: OO in FB

@1000101 This issue came to mind: http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18879&hilit=memory+leak It involved the use of allocate and deallocate to manage an array of strings. I've been in the habit of explicitly setting strings to null in destructors as well. I've found that expl...

Re: OffsetOf request

I see. But is the double cast needed?

Code: Select all

#Define OFFSET_T(typename, fieldname) Cast(GLvoid Ptr, OffsetOf(typename, fieldname))

Re: BFD cache lookup

I am not entirely sure what you are trying to accomplish here. This looks like it will evaluate to a pointer to what is probably an invalid memory address.

Re: OO in FB

Newbie Question! 1000101, what do you mean by "in both the gcc and gas backends." Does FB .24 not compile directly to native and support these OO features. .24 supports MORE object oriented features. Inheritance has been added. Fbc has never compiled directly to machine code. It has alway...

Re: four-in-a-row, minimax, some advice would be helpful...

Since your look ahead routine is recursive, it searches depth first, which is how it gets distracted by future moves and will favor future wins that result from early moves on the left to current moves on the right. I took the same approach to scoring moves, but used a breadth first search in order ...

Re: Back2BASIC #6

I see no problem with the text size. Most browsers implement simple size adjustment anyways.

Scrolling code boxes wouldn't hurt, and they are pretty simple to implement, but since I enjoyed reading the code, it never occurred to me.

I will never understand why the Linux community did not revolt against the GCC crowd's decision to stick with the AT&T syntax as a default.
