Redimensioning structures? Why?

I was checking the manual to better understand how to work with structures. Under keyword "DIM" I've read you can repeat a structure declaration so long as the format is identical to that specified when it was first declared. In this case the contents of the structure remain unchanged: they are not ...

Re: Self aware computers project - written in BBC Basic, help needed!

I'll try to make a point to mitigate all frustrations and irritations. ;) We have two chickens in the garden. They provide us with around 5 eggs per week. Not that much. My neighbour is convinced they could produce up to 10 eggs per week if I position the chicken coop elsewhere in the garden where t...

Re: Proposal for assigning an address to a structure

I don't think it would be too difficult to achieve, in BBCSDL at least (it could be considered for BB4W at a future date) This led me to conclude that at a later date the same solution for BB4W would also be implemented. Admittedly, you didn't say that. My wrong interpretation. But this unavoidable...

Re: Proposal for assigning an address to a structure

4 points : this irritates you you don't think it would be too difficult to implement your proposed solution there are no significant compatibility implications even though I'm the type of programmer that always struggles with pointers and fiddling with memory locations, I clearly see that the way yo...

Re: Breakpoint and selected variables ect.

So if it's good enough for C it should be good enough for BBC BASIC
I use this regularly in combination with a CASE statement. Very useful!

Re: Number of active BBC BASIC users

I know pretty much exactly how many people have purchased BB4W since its release in 2001 Would it be an intrusion on privacy if you would send a direct email to all who once have purchased your BB4W asking if they still use it? if they are aware of the existing sources of information ? As a user my...

Re: Hosting Annual Renewal

Death threats ? Really? How ridiculous (by lack of a stronger word)! Does changing to one of the alternatives you 've mentioned (Kendall Down's BBC BASIC forum, the StarDot forum, BBC BASIC DIscussion Group, Facebook page) will stop this kind of negative reactions? Can't they reach you there too? Edja
