vdecampo, that was probably one of the most insulting posts I've ever read on the forum. Honestly.
You obviously didn't read the rest of my post, or care to understand it. But no, I don't have a big #%$@ developer text under my name, do I? Hah, hahahah.
I appreciate your opinion, but that is all it is, your opinion.
No. I'm right, and you're Π$/- me off.
link any library explicitely
In fact, you've never linked to FBgfx in any of your code, have you? Course, FBgfx.bi includes libfbgfx, but I already told you to look in fbgfx.bi to see if it did that.
Here's an idea. Compile a program with a screen/screenres call. Okay? Asshole. (Just putting emphasis on what a prick you are). Look at the size of the exe. Then compile the same program without a screen/screenres call. Oh wow. Lot smaller, no? Must've not included something bulky this time...
The implicitness is due to you not ever having to include FBgfx yourself. By using the functionality of the graphics library, FreeBASIC knows to include it.
I am looking for definitive answers from developers authorized to speak on this issue, or someone who can point me in the proper direction to find the information myself.
Developers authorized to speak on the issue? You're not asking anything only a developer would know, bud. I'm as authorized to speak on this as they are. Want to be pointed in the right direction? Okay: 1) Get some common sense. 2) You can always look at the source. 3) Stop being an bright.
