Re: Cr '\r' with no Lf' '\n' ?

The CR - LF thing is something that can trip-up anyone from time to time. I'm very used to the ASCII character set and viewing text files in a Hex editor (currently use the Bless Hex Editor) and I recommend anyone interested in software to play around with text files in this kind of editor, where LF...

Re: Cr '\r' with no Lf' '\n' ?

Its a bit of a Unix oddity in some ways. CR = "\r" = carriage return, and should return the carriage on a typewriter back to the beginning of the current line. LF = line feed, and strictly speaking should move on to the next line, but not return to the beginning of a new line. CrLf makes sense becau...

Hi Peter, I'm wondering what the output from your Geiger counter looks like. I assume its a series of random pulses. If th...

Would you Like a Like button?

A couple of years ago I was quite 'sniffy' about "Like" buttons, as per FaceAche, where everyone appears to like just about everything. However, it seems to work well on certain forums that I frequent (such as ww2talk.com). Users don't just like a post because they know the author. Its more a way of...

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, Could you try running get-iplayer in Terminal? I must confess that I have not been following this thread at all, but just noticed you were asking Charlie to run get-iplayer. If its of any help, I just ran it from the terminal and it lists lots of programs as expected (actually, 8556 progra...

Re: Multiline strings

...and you can naturally do stuff like this:- Public Sub Button1_Click() Dim CatStevens As String CatStevens = "It's not time to make a change" & gb.CrLf & "Just relax, take it easy" & gb.CrLf & "You're still young, that's your fault" & gb.CrLf & "There's so much you have to know" & gb.CrLf TextArea...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 B from scratch...

... I thought I'd ask: 1. Which distribution to install and where do I get it? 2. Where to get Gambas (At least 13.3.0)? I don't want to have to compile my own. I am used to synaptic package manager using a PPA. Go to: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ and download Raspbian. I suggest you inst...
