Re: Console qustions.

For reference, you can also get it to beep using ncurses. Screen.Beep As for colour, it can be done rather simply. Window.Print("String ", X, Y, Attr.Normal, Pair[Color.Red, Color.Green]) Where the first of the pair is foreground and the second is background. The whole window can be done using the f...

Re: Gambas on top ten programming languages

Lack of cross platform has always been the biggest con yes, though it is certainly true that WSL on Windows 10 is making it rather moot. Otherwise I certainly think it is highly under-rated. The only comparable IDE to me is Lazarus, and it is far less polished.

Re: Did you know?

I agree up to a point Serban, but I do think there are times when shorthand is easier to read. For example, I use Var += 1 instead of Var = Var + 1 because, also being the lazy kind, it takes less time to read and decode. It depends on the context. My biggest beef is code that just doesn't load any ...

What I love here:
The "Project Showcase".
Brilliant idea! We can talk, exchange ideas, find solutions over a project that is already here, a working sample of what might be achieved using Gambas.
Why thank you. :D

I got the idea from the FreeGameDev forums.

Re: B4A will soon be free and partially open source

Interesting. I had toyed around a little with RFO BASIC a little on my old Samsung Galaxy A5.

Re: Post a screenshot

Toying with adapting my old game Windys as a true terminal application using ncurses. https://static.miraheze.org/pigalorewiki/e/e5/Windys-ncurses.png Screen size is limited, so my old levels need to be trimmed down (from 12 floors per level to 10 shorter ones), but otherwise it is looking good.

ncurses examples

Hello, I wanted to try poking around with the ncurses component to toy with making some pseudo-graphical terminal applications, but all the example code that was created for it seems to have vanished into the ether after the Software Farm came about. First, there is the dead link on this page: http:...
