  • Asciiz ptr in Type

    Hi, folks !

    Try --
    Code:
    #Compile Exe
    
    Type uAdr
       anything As Dword
       szPtr    As Asciiz Ptr
    End Type
    
    
    Function PbMain()
    
    Local szString As Asciiz * 80
    Local u        As uAdr
    
      u.szPtr = VarPtr(szString)
      [email protected] = "powerbasic"
      MsgBox szString
    
    End Function
    Then comment anything. Pretty ?

    Semen,

    This is a known problem that was confirmed a month ago. As soon as a fix is available, we'll post a note.

      sometimes developers are not able to fix bugs quickly.
      As I understand, it was not any patch since appearance PB/DLL6 in July.
      Before patching, is it possible to view a list of all confirmed problems and official workarounds ?

      PS. To avoid confusing of future customers, you can close this information, for example, by serial no.

        An official list of known problems and their workaround would generate a lot less questions. Now the same bug is reported over and over again. I myself have reported the dr Watson (scrollbar/pageup)for 3 times (started in pbcc1.0/pbdll5.0; never heard a thing about it.....) It's helpful to know a bug is noticed and listed to be solved. I don't want to critisize, but it's just helpful to have such a list...

        Peter.
        Regards,
        Peter

          I would love to post a list, however, I don't have one. Or at least, not a complete one. We've got several people still working on it.

          As soon as we confirm and create such a list, I'll post it. It may take a few more weeks, however.

            Dave, has PowerBASIC considered setting up its own Knowledge Base which would contain, amongst other things, known issues with the compilers? Perhaps somewhat similar to the MS KB.
            If you try to make something idiot-proof, someone will invent a better idiot.

              Matthew,

              We've considered lots of things.

              Right now, we feel that our engineers time is best served working on the compilers themselves (and other projects under development).

              Lance and I are working diligently on the web site, but we've also got other duties to perform, so it's moving a little slow at the moment. What's mostly needed is patience.
