  • Found some Tips and tricks on PB

    Hi All

    I have found a website that details some some Tips and tricks on PB , http://www.fredshack.com/docs/powerbasic.html

    fairly useful as you go down this page and see the Tips and tricks subtopic

    OK - if you want to ignore everything that's happened in the last 17 years and limit yourself to PB/DLL6 compatible code (or in a few places PBWIN 7) and have the API include files that came with thoset versions
    (Even ths simple SDK version Hello World demo will cause you all sorts of problems if you try to compile it with PBWin10/CC6)

    And almost all of the links are dead. Either to the old PB Forum format or to abandoneware.

      Please pardon me, I'm don't know much histrory about PB , but that page was stated to have been updated on 16-06-2020 on its top right corner, i w'd thought
      that this w'd be the latest, I never knew that its stuff on this website is so old? 17 years ago?

        As this is the HOME for PowerBASIC this should be the place to share and find info. Posting elsewhere fragments the knowledge.

          It might have been updated in 2020, the question is how much was updated and how much is still 2003 content

          A couple of clues;

          I need to write a COM server
          (From Lance Edmonds, sept 2002) PowerBASIC does not natively support the creation of COM components (yet?!), but you might be able to do it using some of the tools available from

          PB has had COM support for many years.

          Remember, PB/DLL is a 16-bit compiler,

          It's been a 32bit compiler for a long time
