It seems all you guys want to do is fight rather then help the FreeBASIC project.

I have better things to do then try to help a project that's stalled.

Is this now the second or third time you've left??? Seems you leave, sneak back in to snipe and disrupt, and then leave again. Have you tried posting on the PureBasic forum yet... maybe they could use help.

Back on topic:

Thanks I already read most of the stuff you mentioned (google is your friend) but reading it, somewhat understanding it, or reading it, understanding it in a way that starting to write a compiler from scratch or poking around in 4mb of code is not a problem, are 2 different things.

I looked at the wiki but didn't find any help (hope didn't overlook it) how to attack the source code (something like the explanation in your post).

Maybe your post (and more) could be added to the wiki as a reference.

Thanks again

If you want to work with the compiler code, I find FbEdit to be good for that. It can show all the functions from every file in the sidebar, and if you come across a function call in the code, you can call up the code for that function by pressing F2.
