I wonder who these trolls really are? It's probably someone Pete has pissed off in the past. "They" being just one person (or the equivalent). Someone check their isp. It's a pretty common tactic they're using. The second account plays the level headed guy giving credence to the first post...

Thanks for the reply coderjeff. At a glance it may seem silly to have three different dialects, but in the end I think it will only increase fb's appeal. The oop stuff will inevitably make fb more complicated (nothing wrong with that) and fblite will be a good jumping on point for new users used to ...

That's really cool. Will all the new non-oop stuff be available? Also, will variables outside of procedures be considered global? Give me an example of what you meant by initializers working like assignments. I'm not sure I follow you. And thanks, you really put a lot of work into freebasic, and I f...

I think you should show what kind of file the tutorial is in, i.e. text, html, pdf, zip, etc., or make them all a single standardized format.

Please do! Even if you can't include everything you'd like try to finish it in some way. It looks really cool. Anyway, what's the theme of the game? Are you exploring an old mine, hunting for treasure?

I once bought a dianetics book out of curiosity. After struggling to figure out what the hell I was reading for about a third of the way through I finally realized it was propaganda to get me to buy about fifty more books. I was like "???? You mean I've got to buy and READ fifty more books to l...

LOL. You guys all make this place so much fun. I've been reading too much of the freebasic forums lately and was actually getting depressed, but this still feels like a place you can come and just be crazy.

What you do with it is entirely up to you Pete. Personally, I love your site and your magazine. These are the main reasons I've kept coming back to this scene, but if your heart isn't in it anymore I think most of us will understand. As long as you keep making issues, though, I'll keep reading them....

Hey thanks, that's just what I'm looking for. You make my version look so convoluted and sloppy. Must be because the first language I learned was C.




BTW I'm stealing your code. (most of it anyway ;p )

I decided to post this here since there both related to what I'm working on. Anyway, what's the best way to 'erase' the last character in a string that you typed? I'm allocating a zstring for the thing I'm working on and I would like the last character I typed to be removed when I hit the backspace ...

lynn's legacy

Does anyone remember what the password was for the computer terminal in the technology level of LL? I tried back tracking to that first terminal, but it doesn't work anymore. It seems like it was something like FerUs or FarUS or something like that.

It's for text highlighting in the editor. If something new is added to the language you can add the keyword for it to FBide and it will be highlighted when you type it.

You can add keywords in the settings menu. Go to View->Settings then click on the keywords tab. Really the only thing FBide can't do is projects, but you can create batch files for that.

finding out the size of text

I'm trying to make a simple text editor for some projects I have in mind and I'm trying to figure out how big the character bitmaps are for text so I can allocate my line list strings to be the same width as the viewing area. The chart in the manual (I'm using gfxlib) lists two different character s...

If he's using -lang depreciated he shouldn't have to worry about name spaces.

Nodtveidt, that's cool. As for making "-lang deprecated" a supported dialect, there's not much enthusiasm for it from the other FB developers but they are not flat-out saying no either. I don't want to create any false hopes by promising something that can't be delivered, but I think we a...

I would love to see -lang depreciated changed to something like an extended qb dialect. Allowing pointers and 32bit stuff etc., but more procedural than oop. I'm just a hobbiest programmer, and don't really have any use for oop (I definitely don't have a coder's mentality) which is the main reason I...

I use FB instead of C because it brings everything together in a nice and neat little package. For some reason once you get out of ANSI C everything wants to become complicated and convoluted. I also like being able to, quickly, get something on the screen to play around with like I can with FB. Tha...
