Re: Which to download?

Try with this item (for an old Win32):
FreeBASIC-1.07.2-win32-mingworg.zip | .7z archive - alternative to the normal FB-win32 package, may work better for older Win32 systems

You can add:
gcc-5.2.0-for-FB-win32-gengcc.zip - 32bit gcc for the FB-win32 package, in case you want to use -gen gcc.

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Has anyone news from St_W ?
His tech site (FB daily builds) 'http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/builds/' has been down since about February 13, the same day as his last post.

Yes, dereferencing. It's a slip of the tongue on my part.

Re: Moderators, FB community

david, I blocked the "String index doc" topic for a night to get some users to think about what a "reference" is (I had already offered good reads), rather than claiming the same untruths in successive posts for a full day. But I now consider that this was not the right solution....

Re: Weird problem: CreateFile seems to return equal handles for different files

If 'CreateFile()' fails, the return value is 'INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE', value corresponding to '-1', i.e.: '&hFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF' in your 64-bit case (18446744073709551615).

Re: String index doc

4 operators which return by reference have in their documentation page a single syntax of 'Usage', which can be misleading for a novice (suggesting the only feature "get"). Example for the Operator [] (String index): Usage: result = lhs [ rhs ] I propose to add a second syntax also sugges...

Re: String index doc

Otherwise, I think the example I complemented in the docs is pretty straightforward: Dim a As String = "Hello, world!" Dim i As Integer For i = 0 To Len(a) - 1 Print Chr(a[i]) & " "; Next i Print Print For i = 1 To 4 a[i] = a[i] - 32 ' converting lowercase alphabetic characte...

Re: String index doc

The problem here is that the operator [] can work, in get mode, in two different ways , and the only apparent difference lies in the Dim ByRef: Dim a As String = "Hello world" Dim ByRef As ubyte r=a[6] ' the operator [] returns a REFERENCE, which can be used e.g. as r=123 Dim As ubyte...

Re: Moderators, FB community

It seems to me that by unlocking this thread, I thus apologized for having locked it.
But what untruths I read there for 2 days.

Re: String index doc

With everything I added in this doc page, I think I'm listening a bit to comments and suggestions, even a little to the detriment of concision.

Re: Moderators, FB community

I do not see the problem.

I moved your post (viewtopic.php?p=280820#p280820) to the thread you wanted to reply to, but which I had temporarily locked for about 10 hours.

On the other hand, please stop the insults.
