    Objects in PB/DOS? Hmmm...

    Anyway, thanks! I'll see these get placed on the wish list.

    Oh...and a BOOL type that returns a hardcoded TRUE or FALSE so I don't need to do Equates for them anymore...

    I have a few things I would like to see in the next PB/DOS version....
    nothing too spectacular, but useful none the less.

    Adding the ability to build objects/classes would be nice...
    even if it's just adding the ability to link a regular function
    to a TYPE's member...so objects can be faked.

    EX:

    TYPE myClassObject
    Data1 AS INTEGER
    data2 AS WORD
    data3 AS INTERNAL FUNCTION
    data4 AS EXTERNAL FUNCTION
    END TYPE

    Furthermore, I would like to be able to return functions as my
    own data type.

    EX: DECLARE foo(bar) AS myDataType

    FUNCTION foo(bar) AS myDataType
    END FUNCTION

    Like I said...nothing too fancy, just some things to make it
    easier to associate a set of functions and variables.

    Right now I use a method like this:

    TYPE mouseType
    X AS INTEGER
    Y AS INTEGER
    LeftButton AS BYTE
    MiddleButton AS BYTE
    RightButton AS BYTE
    END TYPE

    DIM Mouse as PUBLIC mouseType

    SUB MousePop
    ...Initialize and show mouse...
    END SUB

    SUB MouseHide
    ...Hide Mouse Cursor...
    END SUB

    SUB MouseFill
    ...fill in MOUSE [see above] with all mouse data...
    END SUB

    Hi Javier,

    Are you planning to release a new version of PB/DOS.
    Yes.
    When is it expected?
    PowerBASIC operates a "no-vaporware" policy that prevents us from disclosing any details of products that are not yeat ready to begin shipping.
    Are you recruting beta testers?
    Not right at this time.
    Will it be a minor upgrade like 3.51 or 3.60 or a major release like 4.0?
    Could you give some information about its new planned features?
    Please see my comments above.

    I'm sorry that we cannot give you any real information, but I can tell you that a major release is expected to be available at some time in the future. PowerBASIC is commited to supporting PB/DOS for the foreseeable future!

    Thanks for asking!
