BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.06a released

Copied from Richard's post on the Stardot forum: https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&p=246899 I have released version 1.06a of BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0, the cross-platform programming language for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Raspbian, Android and iOS. The changes in this version are as follows:...

Re: New anti-aliased graphics library for BBCSDL

Interesting. Yes, it looks as though you could increase the miter limit if you really wanted that exaggerated point. I'd probably go for a rounded join, as a good compromise, but that's always going to be a personal choice. Thanks for the kind comments on the celtic knot program. it's quite useful f...

Re: New anti-aliased graphics library for BBCSDL

Here's a cut-down version of a little ditty I did with GDIP some time ago, if anyone is interested... If anyone wants the full version, let me know, and I'll find a way...

Re: New anti-aliased graphics library for BBCSDL

Thanks for posting that, David, and please pass on my congratulations to Richard. It looks very nice. Certainly the step-up in quality with GDIPLib is quite substantial, and I imagine this is the same for SDL. The only difference I can spot is at the base of the heart, where GDIP gives a fine, exten...

Re: Loading a shared object/library into BBCSDL (Linux)

Hi David,

Richard suggests that SDL_LoadObject should do it?

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

Hi Edja, Interesting! Yes, it turns out the XLSX files are zip-compressed, so it's not surprising they are junk if you read them directly. It's probably just going to be easiest to save the file as CSV, which should also load into Excel, as long as you don't need to preserve fancy stuff (like formul...

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

Hi Edja, I think it should be possible to read the whole file in as a single string in BB4W6 (memory permitting!), and then just process with the standard string handling routines. I think that will probably be the best solution. The routines provided in HUGESLIB largely mirror the standard ones, pl...

Re: Closure of this forum

Update:

We're still here...

I understand that RIchard and one of the users here are in negotiations about a possible replacement forum. If/when this is up and running, I'll post another update.

Best wishes,

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

Hi Edja, I don't, but do you need it any more? BB4W 6 and (I think) BBC-SDL now natively support huge strings. Edit: actually I found a copy. I'm not sure what its status is (i.e. whether it would work with recent versions of BBC BASIC). It's not on the list of libraries in the "help", so I presume ...
