Re: Absent admin

Hi Richard, I'm still alive! Just drowning under a sea of coursework deadlines: COVID means exams have basically been replaced by several bits of coursework, so I have 7 to get done by the end of this week... As a conseqeunce, I don't often look at my "old" work email - you are better to use my new ...

Re: Adding new graphic modes

Hi Repton, If you refer to the manual, you will see that BBC BASIC for Windows/SDL offers a multitude of pre-defined modes (34, I think!), as well as the ability to define your own using VDU 23,22.

Re: VDU 24?

Hi Richard,

I didn't see a reply from you, and I certainly didn't delete it! There's no record of it in the moderator's log, so nor did anyone else, as far as I can see. Please feel free to re-post what was clearly a more accurate post than mine!

Best wishes,

Hi Tom, and welcome.

Can I just point out that this is a BBC BASIC forum, so please keep the discussion relevant to that topic: your request is appropriate if you are looking to develop your app in BBC BASIC, but not otherwise.

Best wishes,

David

Re: Should TIME be signed or unsigned?

... the possibility of TIME causing a 'Number too big' error only happened when 64-bit integers were introduced in version 6.00a of BBC BASIC for Windows in 2015. ... the status quo must be the default option... Hi Richard, two fair points: I can see that consistency of behaviour is a strong argume...
