Sisyphus

Postby ike » Jun 17, 2011 16:20

Sisyphus was punished by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this throughout eternity

There is not a 'oficial' GUI API, so we look like Sisyphus. Eodor roll it up half way to the top, stueber did so, and where is that now???

Or you just imagine Sisyphus is happy:
The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart.

LAISSEZ FAIR doesnot work here, some projects should be prop up
by government (core team)

Look at the Lazarus and pascal

Some roll it up half way, some reach the top.

What is a 'oficial' GUI API? In case of GTK the oficial API comes from www.gtk.org. For FB we need matching bindings to use the library and its RAD tools.

Currently there is no need for improvements in fbc to generate these bindings, so no support of the fbc developers is needed.

Bindings for GTK2 and GTK3 are available. What do you miss?

better handling of drawingarea
like in Gambas

Code: Select all

PUBLIC SUB Button1_Click()
Draw.Begin(DrawingArea1)
Draw.Line(1, 130, 500, 400)
Draw.End
END

Use GTK3 with full cairo support (hardware accelerated).

The critics are retared. DNF isnt as bad as they make it sound.

Before calling someone 'retared', it's advisable to learn how to correctly spell 'retarded'. (Just a friendly note. No offense meant. And you may be right on DNF.)

Nice necromancing there Oakleaf :).
I do know how to spell retarded, guess it was a case of butter-fingers. And I didn't call anyone on the board for a retard but the game critics in general.

@ Oakleaf.
Welcome to the FB forum.

There are spelling, grammatical and simple typing errors throughout this forum.
If you can work out what the misspelled word was intended to be, then it was probably close enough.

I thought the intended word was “retired” not “retarded”, lucky I didn't correct the original typo wasn't it.
