Re: C Coding Basics

QuickBasic seems to have exactly what corresponds to C structures: this is called a "record type" : http://wjesus.org/EQbasic_9.htm Almost all modern BASICs support compound data types such as variants, structures, unions, etc. A C-language "structure" (a.k.a. "struct") is what BASIC would normally...

Re: EPIC WIN!

... So far Avast, Firefox all detect a threat when FBSL site is visited or downloaded. ... Not for me though, as seen from the screenshot below. http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg490/FbslGeek/FBSL.png Are you sure your AV software isn't playing dirty tricks, as it usually would, on you and indi...

Re: EPIC WIN!

Re: FBSL The site is currently absolutely clean from virii for me and my peers in the Opera, Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers though it did get infected one or two times in the past, over a decade that the site is up. Please try cleaning your browser caches first -- it often helps. You can th...

Re: Linus Torvalds he gave his opinion on assembly

I never quite got why that language of finicky loops and pointer nonsense is so overhyped. That Heartbleed desaster recently was due to using C. Maybe because it is so unbearably hard to achieve in C WHATSOVER, so when you say, "I wrote it in C" your chest can swell with pride as if you were saying...

Re: Linus Torvalds he gave his opinion on assembly

That's his opinion on C, not assembly. And there is a basic difference between the words "need to", "have to", "should", and "must" that the Google Translator fails to convey for non-English speakers. You don't "need to" know assembly to be able to scratch a few lines in C but you'd better do. You d...

It's rather a saga to the living. The patient looks more alive than dead despite the hosts of mourners around. In fact, that's exactly what ROS itself is all about, in its own peculiar way. :)

Re: For most programmers, it is foolish currently develop in

Whether or not the OP is a troll, he started a thread that caused some good responses. Actually he did, which however doesn't justify such massive broadcasts unless those were, hehe, the S.O.S.'s of a sinking Titanic. Were they really, do you think? Quickbasic 64 has a QB 4.5-cloned IDE and emits C...

Re: For most programmers, it is foolish currently develop in

FYI: The topic starter is a troll that's known to have been polluting other programming sites with irrelevant if not senseless messages similar to what you have just read at the top of this page. His other known nicks are français , monsieur , and Jorge Monsieur . The sooner this entity goes to ban...

Re: Release testing for 0.3.16

...That sounds like ReactOS has Windows NT kernel source code in their possession, which would be illegal. ReactOS is cleanroom reverse engineered, which is 100% legal. I could've accepted your criticism unequivocally but just for one thing: reverse engineering with a view to making the sources pub...

Re: Release testing for 0.3.16

Hello community, I'm new here and I'm not perfectly sure if the following will pass for a comprehensive report but anyways, here it goes. 1. I didn't have the nerve to test v0.3.16 on my HW so I decided to try it in a VMware Workstation or Player (v8.0.1/v4.0.1, respectively) under my XP first. Any ...
