Hi owen!

You don't need php to call your FB executable (on the shell), and bypass the output.

The direct way is to compile your code against the fcgi library and let the web server directly call your binary.

that would really be something if i could learn how to do that and be done with php entirely.

i just took a peek to find out what fcgi is: guess it stands for fast cgi ... i will look into this idea thanks TJF

at the moment i am working on my little interpreter so i can use more then 9 1d arrays so i can do stuff like this

Code: Select all

Declare Sub init(document_title As String, doc_type() As String, document_type As UByte, html() As String, head() As String, title() As String, body() As String)
Declare Function build_html(doc_type() As String, html() As String, head() As String, title() As String, body() As String) As String

Dim As String html_document
Dim As UByte document_type
Dim As String document_title
Dim As String document_content
Dim As String doc_type(2)
Dim As String html(1)
Dim As String head(1)
Dim As String title(2)
Dim As String body(2)

document_type=0 'default value is zero for html5 and 1 to 7 for other html doc types
document_title="My web page"

init(document_title,doc_type(), document_type, html(), head(), title(), body())

'enter your web page content here
document_content="<h1> My first web page built using fbs</h1>"
document_content+="<p>This is a test</p>"
body(1)=document_content

html_document = build_html(doc_type(), html(), head(), title(), body())

Print html_document
Sleep



Sub init(document_title As String, doc_type() As String, document_type As UByte, html() As String, head() As String, title() As String, body() As String)

Re: Is it possible to Hello world on a server

my interpreter was poorly designed and it only supported up to 9 1d, 9 2d and 9 3d arrays of all standard fb types ie. byte, ubyte, integer, uinteger, string etc...

i wrote this little interpreter before i really know anything about udt's and thanks to paul and fxm i now know a bit more
so now i am adding support for upto N 1d, N 2d, N 3d and N 4d arrays of all standard fb types

here's a peek at my use of udt's with this idea and i appoligize this shouldn't be posted in this subtopic but just wanted to share with u all what i'm upto and reason for delay to look into TJF's fcgi suggestion for now.

Code: Select all

Type fbs_boolean_array_1d
   variable(Any) As boolean
   Declare Sub dim_standard(ByVal n as Integer)

Re: Is it possible to Hello world on a server

of course the idea of figuring out how to hello world on a server (for me) is all about figuring out how to run a server side script engine (that interprets fb code...) and it is working (kinda) but i have a long long way to go with my fbs project

It's the binary to connect a solar system controller to a html site, providing the current system state to a html mask shown in a JavaScript supported browser page (command ?CSS). Or providing the log data (command ?LOG).

Data is coming by shared memory from the controller software (#INCLUDE "solar-regler.bi", "solar-output.bi"), which is running as a separate executable. (The commented lines are used when the code runs without the controller executable, on a test system.)

I use lighttpd for the web server.

#INCLUDE ONCE "fastcgi/fcgi_stdio.bi"

fastcgi is a library included with freeBASIC?

The headers are included in FB. You've to install the binaries on your box.

by box u mean for example on my laptop so i can dev and test...
and i guess also i would need to install the library on the server or maybe it's already on the server... something like that.

I don't know the OS on your development environment. Ie. for debian based LINUX systems execute sudo apt install libfcgi-dev

The server needs the run-time library sudo apt install libfcgi. And it needs a html webserver demon, that listens on port 80 for http, and on port 443 for https requests, and responses to that request. As already said I use lighttpd for that purpose. In that webserver application you can configure one (or more) fcgi executables for serving data for certain requirements.

here is a link to my latest
https://www.fbcadcam.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=426

i decided to use cgi perl to shell out to the interpreter (instead of php)

i don't think i'm smart enough to experiment with fastcgi on my rented bluehost server without totally messing things up.
