Re: [Done] Need ClearArray() command

That does not handle string arrays and C optimizer performance is what counts.

Re: Help me: Convert C++ to PB. Thanks for help <3

Are you sure Bool = byte?
Always compare sizeof(struct) in both languages.

Re: Run second sqlite query before finishing the previous query?

As mentioned, you can do a lot with better SQL logic. You could create temp tables in memory from sequential queries and then make your final select. Or massage your original table design to support your most frequent queries. Example, you always add col a,b,c, then make a sumcol. Extreme data norma...

Re: PureBasic 6.00 Alpha 5 released !

Given optimization with gcc and other compilers outperform PB's asm, this is not a high priority for me.
The non-x86 platforms are upon us now. RaspberryPI and many flavored ARM based mini-computers open up a large market and low cost deployment for ioT. :idea:

Re: PureBasic 6.00 Alpha 5 released !

We do have to back out any ASM code before selecting the C compiler.
Are there any other big syntax changes?

Re: PureBasic vs B4J

RAD means Rapid Application Development. VB6 was considered RAD because its form editor and IDE produced live code and "edit and continue" if making changes on the fly. I would put PB in the DRA, Develop Rapid Applications, bucket. The PB form editor is not as fluid as VB6 but is also not ...

Re: PureBasic business applications

Buy both :mrgreen:
Look through the canvasgadget examples in the forum. Else, the gui elements are cut and dry.
The business app world is wide open so not sure where to direct.
Database access is quite smooth in PB.

Re: Then statement for ONLY single line IFs

It is best to pick a boring way to code and stick with it.
This means never multiple lines on 1 line.
No multiple ways of creating and closing conditionals.

Forget about convenience and think of debugging errors and automated code.
Simplifying syntax improves automation and reduces errors.

Fred, using desktop browser like Chrome, the banner is in the footer and like before.
But on mobile phone, the ads are very dominant and in your face. :shock:

Re: PureBasic 6.00 Alpha 3 released !

Yes, but Pelles is limited to x86_x64.
The reason for transpile to C is to support ARM and other uprocessors.

Re: Very important!

The common cold and various influenzas are also with us until we perfect immediate antibody stimulation/creation.
I am more concerned with ticks and mosquitoes than sniffles.
