Re: Loading a shared object/library into BBCSDL (Linux)

Hi David,

Richard suggests that SDL_LoadObject should do it?

Best wishes,

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

Hi Edja, Interesting! Yes, it turns out the XLSX files are zip-compressed, so it's not surprising they are junk if you read them directly. It's probably just going to be easiest to save the file as CSV, which should also load into Excel, as long as you don't need to preserve fancy stuff (like formul...

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

Hi Edja, I think it should be possible to read the whole file in as a single string in BB4W6 (memory permitting!), and then just process with the standard string handling routines. I think that will probably be the best solution. The routines provided in HUGESLIB largely mirror the standard ones, pl...

Re: Closure of this forum

Update:

We're still here...

I understand that RIchard and one of the users here are in negotiations about a possible replacement forum. If/when this is up and running, I'll post another update.

Best wishes,

Re: HUGESLIB.BBC

Hi Edja, I don't, but do you need it any more? BB4W 6 and (I think) BBC-SDL now natively support huge strings. Edit: actually I found a copy. I'm not sure what its status is (i.e. whether it would work with recent versions of BBC BASIC). It's not on the list of libraries in the "help", so I presume ...

BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.05a released

Copied from Richard's post on the Raspberry Pi forum, as noted by David Williams elsewhere, but included here for completeness. I have released version 1.05a of BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0, the cross-platform programming language for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Raspbian (Raspberry Pi), Android and iOS. The cha...

Re: keystroke detection

This seems to work fine: REPEAT WAIT 1 MOUSE x%,y%,z% PRINT x%,y% IF INKEY(-67) THEN PRINT "X down" UNTIL FALSE The x,y coordinates of the mouse seem to continue to change even while the X is pressed - so presumably I'm misunderstanding your problem. Can you post a brief example of your code, and ex...

David unavailable

Hi folks, Just to let you know that I will have little or no internet access over the next 2 weeks, so I won't be able to exercise my usual admin role. Hopefully that won't pose any problems. If there is a major problem, Richard still has admin rights: perhaps someone could contact him privately. Sh...

Re: 3D GUI

Hi Ric, Got it up and running: looks very impressive and professional, with all its tooltips etc! I've had only a quick go so far... ...BUT... Trying to load an object seemed to look (only) for BBC files in the "Graphics GUI 18.3.3" folder, which is an older version. Is that a flaw in your default p...
