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

Re: Closure of this forum

Without Richard - even with the highly appreciated (!) support of a number of other enthusiasts - the most valuable source of knowledge, information and support is missing. This is blatantly obvious. Elsewhere on the forum I read that everyone, including me, is eagerly awaiting Richard's return to t...

Re: DateAdd function to Convert to Future Date and Past Date

DATELIB already contains already the functionality you are looking for without having to use STRINGLIB. Is this an alternative ? A shorter one ? Or am I missing something ? (wouldn't be the first time) ;) Edja INSTALL @lib$+"DATELIB" REM Add Future Date date1$="01/01/2019" date2$=FN_DateAdd(date1$,1...
