Hello,

A few questions:
I am still having trouble getting the auto indentation to behave properly.
I have set the TAB width to 4 and left auto indent on.

nested if, else .... select, case statements jump all over the place in the editor after hitting enter on the previous line.
I have also noticed that the the result looks fine in the editor (after correction) but looks like scrambled eggs :-) in the final .bas file.
Another perculiar thing is that back-spacing a full TAB does not always work. Often I have to backspace 4 spaces (even if I am sure the the previous character is a TAB)

I never had these issues with FBIde and I have not changed my workflow in any way.
I am not trying to sound negative as I am very pleased with the overall product, but how can I let it behave properly?

A few examples:

Hi Paul. I don't want to be a nuisance but I cannot help it. <smile> gcc 8.3 (regression fixes & docs only) hit the streets on 22 Feb 2019 and the 8.2 stable came out 26 July 2018. With 8.1 I have code which compiles but does not work, so I am having to fall back on 5.2 used in FB's 1.06 release. I have no idea where to find an 8.2 that can be used in WinFBE.

hello deltarho[1859]
I built fb with gcc-9.1 and it works ok when used within the gcc-toolchain, but the standalone version gives undefined symbols, I hacked the 32-bit standalone version by replacing init.o in libfb.a with the same object from the latest build by StW and also using StW's libmingw32.a, the few tests that I did worked ok, if you are interested I can upload it for you.
forget about the 64-bit standalone version, too many undefined symbols, however when used within the gcc-toolchain everything works ok.

Hi srvaldez

I am not that au fait with compiler terminology, what do you mean by "when used within the gcc-toolchain"?

@deltarho[1859]
in the new release page on this forum, you have standalone versions for Windows and also a version that you install in a mingw toolchain
it makes it very handy to have FB in the gcc-toolchain to build new FB releases.
I am almost finished with the win64 build with gcc-8.3, but got distracted looking for a VM with 686-gcc-8.3, sadly only have gcc-7.4
and then this offer to upgrade to Windows 1903 showed on my updates, so I am upgrading.
the win64 build looks promising, no undefined symbols, just need to finish updating some more libraries and then, if all looks good I will post a download link for you, but right now I am waiting on the updates to finish.

@srvaldez

Thanks for the explanation.

I got your pm about 8.3 but accidentally deleted it - pressed the wrong key - senile decay setting in. <smile>

"if all looks good I will post a download link for you"

That would be great!
