Re: Nearly identical copies

If the 'code' you are referring to is BB4W code, then of course you use the 'Differences' tool from the BB4W Utilities menu for this........

Re: OSCLI("bbcwrun6 ..")

Most definitely I agree that this is entirely a Windows issue not a BBC BASIC issue. Also expanding the OSCLI to OSCLI("""C:\Program Files (x86)\BBC BASIC for Windows\bbcwrun6"" D:\prog.bbc;") works fantastic! The compiled program is not meant for distribution so this solution will be fine. I needed...

Re: OSCLI("bbcwrun6 ..")

Thanks for the replies. I indeed had @dir$ and @lib$ issues when I CHAINed a program from a compiled program which was fixed by setting @dir$ and @lib% just prior to the CHAIN. However, I would assume "bbcwrun6" would set those when it starts. Will do more tests after my little holiday. Have a nice ...

The following program works fine from the IDE but not when it is compiled : OSCLI("bbcwrun6 D:\prog.bbc;") QUIT From the IDE, the...

[quote]In your position I'd worry about the BIOS update failing though; what actually happens?[/quote] Don't worry Richard. I really don't care as the laptop isn't really used. Just wondered if it would upgrade to Win10. It did but for the rest I only use it sometimes to install or test software tha...

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.08a released

Actually CHAIN "opengl.bbc" works flawless, no crash.... But CHAIN "fern.bbc" keeps crashing ("not responding") , when I click Close button "BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 is not responding". Even though "fern.bbc" is a much simpler source as "opengl.bbc". The only driver after running the detection util fro...

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.08a released

"This app can't run on your PC" is what I get when I double click on Opengl95.exe that has been downloaded.

So, haha, I think that says it all. The DELL latitude e6400 hardware is too ancient (eventhough Win10 1903 runs rather OK on it).
Also couldn't find modern DELL drivers anymore.

Cheers

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.08a released

(Why don't I see the iconbar for adding BBCode when I reply messages in the Announcement forum??? Nevermind) OK, On the Win10 problem laptop I renamed bbcsdl.bbc and then double clicked bbcsdl.exe. The command line window appears. Statement execute OK but the typing itself alternates between the cha...

Re: Challenge: character extraction from screen capture

I could use a OCR tool to, for example, convert from a JPG image to text into a simple TXT format.
So I wait for your tool to be ready.

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.08a released

Hi Richard, Yes, I experienced that problem on a older Win10 laptop. On my Win10 desktop it works fine. Didn't do much yet to figure out why it doesn't work on the laptop but I'm happy to do some testing if you want me to. Oh wait........... I did try copying over C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\BBC...
