Re: ON MOUSE [LOCAL] (need help)

I'm not sure what you're trying to do or exactly what trouble you're having with ON MOUSE. The examples you posted are a bit unclear. If you're getting the "not in a subroutine" error, it might be that your ON MOUSE interrupt is being activated, and then you enter a procedure, and then you try to RE...

Richard Russell releases source code for BBCSDL

Hello, Richard Russell has released source code for BBCSDL. https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=15667 I'm very pleased about this and I'm optimistic for the future of BBC BASIC. I hope to be using BBCSDL for a very long time to come. I'm also very sad to hear about Richard's health co...

Re: My calculator program

Thanks for trying it out. Have you noticed that when you put in a number after an evaluation it tags it onto the previous result in the display? Yes. There are other similar problems as well. I'll definitely be improving on it. Your library must let you make the button color different from the backg...

Re: Calculator (group effort)

Hello, This calculator is certainly nice looking. I like the 3D effect on the calculator screen. Though I'm used to using a calculator program (gnome-calculator on linux) that can take expressions (I mean like 1+2*3/4^5) and also that can let you define variables. A calculator that lets you type exp...

Re: BBC on linux

I would recommend that you try both BBCSDL and Brandy and see which you prefer. As BBCSDL is a lot more powerful and more polished, I think it would be the best choice. Note, though, that BBCSDL under x86 Linux is only 32-bit. It no longer runs on my x86_64 Ubuntu machine, even after installing all...

I'm returning to the forum

Hello, I posted some inappropriate comments in the User Interface subforum. Having posted something that was inappropriate, I feel that it would be best if I left bbcbasic.co.uk. I will log out and not return to this forum or post here again. I apologise for the trouble caused. PM Edit: I've decided...

Re: How can other popular editors be used with BBCSDL? (eg Geany)

What I sometimes do is, write my program in a text editor, save as plaintext with .BAS as the filename extension, and then open with SDLIDE, which can then be used to run the program or save it as a tokenised .bbc file.
