Re: Cute little HexDump tool

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...

Re: FOR lists

Richard,

Iterating through an array closely fits the functionality.
With that alternative in mind, I see little value in implementing this as part of the language.

Re: Request by Richard to return

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...

Structures are great

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...

Re: Getting file information

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...

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

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...

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

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...

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

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 bb4w@groups.io but was unable to r...

HUGESLIB.BBC

I'm trying to find HUGESLIB.BBC. I think I have a use for it .
It was once available via
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/bb4w ... GESLIB.BBC

But this download link doesn' function anymore.
Can someone send me the latest version of the library or a functioning link ?

regards,
Edja
