  • PB9 / Unicode

    Dear Beta-Testers!

    I look forward to the new versions (pb9+cc5).
    Is the documentation already complete?

    Is there commands for file names in the
    unicode format type (OPEN_W, DIR_W)?

    As for documentation, see for yourself: http://www.powerbasic.com/support/

    Both help files can be viewed there.

      I heard that the final version is not yet available.
      I thought, maybe the documentation is too not completely ready.

        PB 9 is shipping. Many already have it. As a former beta tester I know that products are not announced prior to their released.

        Now that this is 9.0, we will probably see a minor bug fix for free to those who already purchased and receved 9.0

        (former via my own decision.)

          I posted something on this maybe six months ago, but it was not in Source Code Forum. IIRC I had some errors and someone else posted fixes to the original.

          Try a 'find' on "FindFirstFileW"

            The new compilers are released to the public (see PB's online shop and Bob's announcement here at the top of the forum).

            And as Barry said, "regular" users (i.e. non beta testers) have received their ordered copies meanwhile (that includes me *smile*).

              @Knuth Konrad
              I have my orders not yet received.
              I was told that there is still worked.
              Therefore my question.

              @Michael Mattias
              My program works with the PB commands (OPEN, DIR, etc.).
              For me it would be much easier if I could replace the commands
              (OPEN to OPEN_W, DIR to DIR_W, etc.).

              Unfortunately, there is in PB9/CC5 again not these commands.

                I did a forum search on "OPEN_W" and this was the only thread that was returned. Perhaps with the latest changes the need for it will grow. Best send in an NFS.

                  For me it would be much easier if I could replace the commands (OPEN to OPEN_W,
                  Start with this:

                  Create and use a file which will be deleted on close

                  Change references to "szFile" to a dynamic string (of unicode characters).

                  Change CreateFile to CreateFileW (requires NT4+; on Win9x may use MSLU) (Passing STRPTR BYVAL for name)

                  Drop the FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE attribute.

                  Done.
