Re: The worst insult ever?

Not sure how you quote within quotes.... So pretend I did. Top right hand corner of the post is a button with quote marks. Tools > Preferences > Projects Dang, there it is. I turned it off first time, forgot where it was, forgot I did it. Reflexes sometimes get the better of me. Wonder why it is un...

The worst insult ever?

"Your momma uses tabs in her source code." It means: "You are so stupid, you must have been born that way." The obvious inference is that using tabs in your source code is stupid, really really stupid. Is that true? Well, yes. There are two possible reasons for wanting to use tabs in your source cod...

The True True

Here is something to try: Print CByte(True) Print CByte(False) Print Print CByte(Not True) Print CByte(Not False) Print Print CByte(Not Not True) Print CByte(Not Not False) Dim b As Byte b = 1 ' C's "True" Print Print CByte(b) Print CByte(Not b) Print CByte(Not Not b) Your output should look like th...

What's the story about gambasmag.com

Gambas Magazine

http://www.gambasmag.com/

Looks like a good idea that failed to reach critical mass. No activity for several years, yet the site is still up.

Re: What about Inc, Dec?

Yes, welcome to what is officially the friendliest forum on the internet. Okay, I gotta say: Where is it written? And who enforces it? In the early days, when the first task of the morning was to clean the pterodactyl poop off the porch, I wrote my own little assembler. My thought was if I could ma...

Re: What about Inc, Dec?

Old farts club. :-) I should have looked at your profile before I posted my previous reply. Yes, I have a copy of that too. Out of date, and not useful. I've been deep diving into Gambas.h, and studying the architecture. I'm getting quite knowledgeable. There are two flavors of components. Gambas an...

Re: What about Inc, Dec?

Hi Quin, Thank you for your kind words and welcoming attitude. I'm actually a very long time programmer. Let me give you a clue, my first language was VSBASIC on an IBM 360, on a genuine Teletype terminal. If you can type fast on that, you can type fast on anything. Program storage was done with a p...

What about Inc, Dec?

First time poster here. I've been playing around with Gambas quite a lot for the last few weeks. One of the improvements over any flavor of BASIC is the inclusion of the combined operation/assignments: "x += 1" is so much nicer than having to "x = x + 1" Particularly when you use long descriptive va...
