Sorry, I may have given wrong information somewhere, I've lost track...

The "flags" field is only available in fbc/master (currently version 1.08). The 1.07.1 does not have a flags field available. If you edit your post to remove the flags field and the FBARRAY_FLAGS_* constants, then it should be OK for 1.07.1. Sorry for any misinformation.

@coderJeff,

About the packages with different GCC versions. I see that you still default to GCC 5.2.0. Why is that? I am not sure what GCC my project needs. While it seems that higher may be better I prefer my project to be save. Won't it be a hassle to compile all these different packages every time?

Thanks for 1.07.1!

Default is still gcc-5.2.0 for fbc-1.07.1, correct; same as fbc-1.07.0 and several earlier versions of fbc. Intent is to provide a few new options for gcc version. And with the efforts from srvaldez, deltatho, and PaulSquires, they are providing additional options for gcc version as well. For now keeping the reasonably stable and well known base of gcc-5.2.0, and my hope is that we can select and move to a newer gcc version for the 1.08.0 release.

If you don't know or don't care about gcc version, then sticking with default gcc-5.2.0 is fine. When we move to a new default version, then I would recommend that one. True, it is a bit of a hassle to package for so many tool chains. The benefit though is that we are checking that fbc works with so many tool chains.

An unbelievably flawless, absolutely perfect install of FreeBASIC-1.07.1-ubuntu-18.04-x86_64.tar.xz on EasyOS Buster 2.1.6 with the corresponding devx installed.

EasyOS Buster is a Debian based Linux by Barry Kauler, the primary developer of the PuppyLinux OS. For details see
