... and that's been the case for at least as long as I've been using PureBasic (15+ years).

Re: Revised Chr() & Asc() for UTF-16 surrogate pairs

Oh, yes. I had forgotten that PeekS() requires the number of characters rather than the number of bytes. Thanks!

Sharing code in the body of an e-mail actually is not a good idea.
Better attach your .pb file(s) to the mail.

Re: Revised Chr() & Asc() for UTF-16 surrogate pairs

The code in the first post here works fine e.g. with PB 5.73 LTS. Many thanks again to Demivec! However, when trying to run the code e.g. with PB 6.04 (x64) or PB 6.10 (x64) on Windows, an error is raised. I didn't test with other PB versions, though. The following snippet Procedure.s _Chr(v.i) ;ret...

Re: ResizeWindow not working with DPI aware

Can someone with a 4k high DPI monitor check this out and confirm? If I run the following code the Window starts at position 0,0 and when I press the button to move the window to 0,0 using ResizeWindow, the Window ends up at -6,0 if DPI aware is enabled on a 4K monitor with scaling set to 175% It's...

Re: Solve 1 Equation with 2 Unknowns

X = (653184000 / (499 * Y)) 1) This equation also can be written like this: Y = 653184000 / (X * 499)   2) For a long time X was unknown, so that people all over the world had to calculate its value over and over again. Fortunately, about 10 years ago the world-renowned Max Planck Institute for Mat...

Re: NaN() and if compare problem

; ASM OK, C-Backend Bug? Number = Sqr(-1) If Number = NaN() [...] Wrong code. In order to check for NaN, only use PB's IsNaN() function. NaN is a special value. Testing for it should not be done using normal comparisons because there are actually many different values for NaN and whether or not NaN...
