You've asked : "So I'd be interested to know ..............why you are sticking with BB4W rather than branching out into cross-platform BBC BASIC programming" I need the COMLIB library that comes with BB4W to be able to interact with Excel. My understanding is that BBCSDL doesn't support COMLIB. For...

Hi Mike, I've just tried it out and it works nicely. And simple to use. I have no immediate use for it right now but I've saved it. It may come in handy sooner or later. Also your use of SYS "DragQueryFile",@wparam%,0,B%,260 and SYS "DragFinish",@wparam% is useful to me. It seems I always find somet...

David, Richard, All, I have NEVER considered Richard's comments as abrasive. To the contrary I have always enjoyed his answers for their precision and, yes, also for the style. But if this is the way to get Richard back on board then let's do this. I look forward to see the forum come back to live a...
Hi to all, I'm not sure where to post this ... I just want to let people know that I finally did the effort to use structures in my programs and that this was a revelation. Big words but justified. I know Richard has made the effort to implement structures already some years ago. And, at the time, I...

Hi D. , On 22 Mar 2019 you 've posted some prototype code that deals with the FileAttributes. I think you were still trying to solve a few details. I 've just tried the code you 've posted and it runs but doesn't produce any correct data. Did you follow through on this ? If yes, would you be prepare...
Hi D , You wrote: as long as you don't need to preserve fancy stuff well yes, it so happens that I do need some fancy stuff. The xlsx file is the result of an Excel webdata query The query starts on opening the xlsx file. I then close the file and launch my BB4W program to crunch the downloaded data...
Hi DDRM and Mike, According to your advice I coded the following as a proof of concept: tijd=TIME Myfile$="H:\Testfile.csv" A=OPENIN(Myfile$) File$=GET$#A BY EXT#A occur=FN_Count_Occurrences(File$,"Toevoegen") PRINT TIME-tijd END DEF FN_Count_Occurrences(a$,o$) LOCAL c,i REPEAT i=INSTR(a$,o$,i) IF i...
Mike, Very usefull considerations. Thank you! I guess I can claim more workspace by raising HIMEM. I've never had a need for that before, so I'll read some more about it before doing so. I'm a complete illiterate in assembly language. So I'll have to do with the classic string operations plus the ST...
Hi D., what I 'd like to do is: read a xls-file with a size close to 1 MB (is that even considered huge?), then treat it as a string to count the number of occurrences of a substring. Maybe other operations later on too. I found a partial description of HUGESLIB on email@example.com but was unable to r...
