  • Porting C to PB Helpfile

    A suggestion: How about compiling all of the various tips seen
    here for porting C code to PB code into a single file/web site
    section, like you do for using PB with VB?

    I'm trying to port some C headers to PB and I'm buried underneath
    the many "features" of the C language. I've been able to find
    some of the answers to my porting questions by searching here, but
    I'm sure I'm missing a lot of information.

    This helpfile would cover simple variable type translations,
    structs-to-UDTs, function declares, pointers, dealing with ENUMS,
    etc.

    Just a thought!

    Mark,

    do a search on POFFS on this forum to find what you are looking for.

      I have POFFS (quite nice) on my system and I've used it to find
      answers to some of my porting questions.

      I was just thinking that a "How To"-type document that pulled all
      the various porting tips & such would be helpful.

        Infinite perfection would be welcome, and we're working on it. In the meantime,
        it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on other functional solutions!

          Hmm.. I thought PB policy prohibited advance notice of new products or features.....

            Personally, I'm really looking forward to the release Infinite Perfection 1.00.

            Hmmm... Would there ever be a need for version 1.01?

              Probably just to add support for Object Orientated Perfection... although Infinite Perfection may not require it.

                Wow, imagine being able to create an instance of perfection any time you wanted, with a single line of code.

                Of course, a GPF could destroy the universe...

                      I maintain a helpfile on my site.
                      At start i placed all neat code in this database wich generates the helpfile.
                      I didn't dare to make this public.

                      And... why should I decide what's get's in and not?

                      Difficult.

                      I think Poffs is more than sufficient

                        Gee, I'm surprised nobody made a Bill Gates joke here Thanks
                        for the humor, it was a nice way to start a Monday morning!
