Re: PureBASIC internal encoding of unicode, UCS-2 or UTF-16?

For the record, PB uses UCS2 string encoding internally when unicode mode is ON (it doesn't support multibyte UTF16 encoding). Does this mean that if Windows passes back a UTF-16 string where one character actually uses two UTF-16 "characters" then PureBasic will treat them as if they whe...

Re: Unicode and PureBasic

From wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-16 UTF-16 developed from an earlier fixed-width 16-bit encoding known as UCS-2 (for 2-byte Universal Character Set) once it became clear that a fixed-width 2-byte encoding could not encode enough characters to be truly universal. UTF-16 is used for te...

Re: RemoveKeyboardShortcut(#PB_Shortcut_Revert)

It might "look" better if it's called RemoveKeyboardShortcut(#PB_Default) instead of revert.


Alternatively allow #PB_Default to be used with AddKeyboardShortcut() provided the constant do not clash with any existing keyboard shortcuts that is (I haven't checked).

Re: Trojan detected

In compiler options under "Compile/Run" there is a option "Create temporary executable in the source directory", enable that, compile and find the exe in the directory of your source file.

Re: Sticky post needed that discusses Unicode vs Ascii

This is not a migration issue. The hash functions always operated on memory, none of them operate on strings the are binary only. The fact that MD5FingerPrint returns a hex string might make people assume it's for getting the hash of a string, but it's not. This "issue" dates back to Windo...

Re: Protection process

FIY, for those curious it should be possible to achieve the same using Windows permissions, that way a system admin can prevent users from killing programs. I can't recall exactly where you set these permissions but some else here might now. Then again, if you make sure a user is a regular user (i.e...

Re: RemoveKeyboardShortcut with #PB_Shortcut_All kills tab

If I recall correctly, the reason why RemoveKeyboardShortcut() and #PB_Shortcut_All removes the TAB as well, was that some developers wanted/needed to re-purpose the TAB key or "disable" it, and this is the only way to do that (IIRC).

Re: How can I obtain my internet address?

Do note that the IP may not be guaranteed. For example your LAN may use 192.168.x.x and then your WAN and ISP may use 172.x.x.x and so on, depending on the ISP you may actually be behind a ISP NAT, and I think (my router knowledge is limited when it comes to NAT) it is possible that two machines (or...

For those interested, this might be worth looking at http://www.purebasic.fr/english/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=61273 The source there behaves as expected and shows how to do unbuffered reads of individual files (on Windows only, sorry, no idea on how to do that on Linux) so one won't end up like me a...

Readspeed Test v3.0 HD/OS buffered and unbuffered speeds.

This is based on the code from here v2.x but v3 is Windows only, sorry about that. The issue with measuring read speed from HDD/SSD/SATA/USB devices is that Windows has a very aggressive cache. From that thread Fred says "IIRC Windows uses its whole free memory as disk cache. It's shadow mem, w...
