Re: Programming is supposed to be fun

CoconutThrower-0.0.2.tar.gz Instructions: [Up], [Down], [Space], [Esc] This is going to take a bit of 'splaining, so if the band could throw down a few notes for some background music, that would be appreciated. Here is a next step towards learning how to program in Gambas, particularly aimed at th...

Programming is supposed to be fun

**So, I was out going for a walk, always a good thing to do, and a neigbor invited me in. He said, my boy just doesn't get programming. I said, hmmmm, has he tried Gambas? He said no, so I said let's try this. We went on the computer and installed Gambas. Created a project. I had him put a button on...

A reader writes....

I recently got a letter from a Dorothy in Kansas, she writes: Gosh, Mr. Dawg, why do you hate tabs so much? Well, Dottie, may I call you Dottie? First a shout out to farm country, you are feeding the world, and we appreciate you so much. Hug a farmer today. It's also in the middle of tornado alley, ...

Re: Let's make 'em Garish

You're welcome shordi, I actually made it for the system color names. It doesn't seem Gambas doesn't let you input system names, but no big deal, the hex codes work just as easily, if not more so, Colonel Sanders helped me with the sort recipe. ;-) Ced Here is the classification scheme for how the c...

Let's make 'em Garish

ColorTable.htm.zip Okay, let's not. But, hey, if you want to, you can. Attached to this post you should find a simple HTML document which is a display of all the standard system colors (as defined on my system: Linux Mint --shout out, it rocks) arranged in a table.

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.

Anybody know anything?
