Re: Tabulator in IDE

And simply because of duckduckgo's advertises with "We don’t store your personal information. Ever." you believe them? Well, yes, I know it is off topic but just saying.....

Re: Tabulator in IDE

To do what exactly?
Lines of code can't contain tabs (ASCII 09) and in string literals it is awkward to have CTRL code's inserted like this.

Re: Compare struct speed vs array - is it a fair way to compare?

You are absolutely correct Richard. I forgot that raising HIMEM is for the entire IDE session and not every time for the program that is about to run. My apologies. And you are also correct that when adding one single character after a REM there is the same speed increase. So in addition this also i...

Re: Compare struct speed vs array - is it a fair way to compare?

Yes, very obvious speed difference. Nice example Richard!
What puzzles me however is why array version speed increases by almost 30% when I REM out the very first line?

Thanks

Re: BBC BASIC for Windows v6.13 release candidate

As far as I know, product quality has always been on top of your priority list. Let it be no different this time. Also I think absolutely no one expressed any concern or complaint over the delay. Correct me when I'm wrong please. So take your time even if that time is longer as it used to be. Regard...

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

The MENU.BBC and MENU2.BBC sources that come with BB4W (in the EXAMPLES>WINDOWS directory) are excellent for learning how to setup and use Menu's. If you are an expert, it should be a walk in the park for you to understand these two small example sources.

Re: custom pin control for my solar water heater

Nice little sample. However personally I find the "ON" / "OFF" approach very limited. First with a misspell like "On", " ON", "on", "on " the procedure fails. Second, for a programmer it is highly impractical when using calculating in the parameters, e.g. PROC_pin(24, Status% MOD 2) . Third, it is v...

Re: BBC BASIC for Windows v6.13 release candidate

No concern whatsoever Richard. Is there a dedicated section on your site listing the version numbers of the most recent available libraries? I checked: http://www.bbcbasic.co.uk/bbcwin/updates.html but that isn't it. It is not a complaint but rather my failure to locate updated material outside of t...

Re: BBC BASIC for Windows v6.13 release candidate

Will it include an updated Box2D lib in order to run the latest BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 examples?

Re: Nearly identical copies

There you go.
It appears strange to me that after 40000+ lines of code, one is unaware of BB4W capabilities. :?
