Re: 'include filename.bas

I right-clicked the link on Alyce's Restaurant website and then copy link. Pasted this link in the Firefox browser and this brought up the link for download. Extremely strange. I have never encountered that behaviour on any other website. I have no idea what causes it, but it must result in many pe...

Re: 'include filename.bas

So I clicked on Help in the LBB IDE and here is the result... Precisely! This is where we came in. Repeating yourself isn't going to make any difference to my answers. :roll: (which I use rarely - I use LB Workshop) The LBB manual should be accessible from LBW too, if you've set it up correctly. I ...

Re: 'include filename.bas

Are you saying that we should ignore the manual and use the Programmer's Reference? Not at all, and hopefully they don't contradict each other (if they do I'd like to know). All I'm saying is that the great majority of LBB users who want to consult the manual will do so by opening the local copy th...

Re: 'include filename.bas

I accessed it from the link to the Manual The manual on the website is indeed out of date, but because it's far more likely that an LBB user will be using the built-in version (accessed from the Help menu), which of course I cannot change without a new release, it seems to me largely pointless to c...

Re: 'include filename.bas

The reason I referred to the Wiki was because there is a link to it on three LB Booster page, which is dead. I don't know where you're looking: the link to the WIki on the LBB page is not dead, it is very much alive! If you can find any broken links at the LBB website please let me know, but that i...

I think that covers the ground that there Wiki would have done.
It is the Wiki: nothing was lost when Conforums and Wikispaces closed, the content was all safely moved to new homes.

Re: 'include filename.bas

LBB allows the use of INCLUDE files with 'include filename.bas at the very end of the file. RTR's description of LBB includes a reference to a Wiki article about include files. Of course, Wiki no longer exists. Does anybody have a copy of this Wiki article that they could post a link to? Do you mea...

Re: Difference in httpget$()

Later I found that it is posible to use httpget$() without cache. You are correct that there are two approaches: either the sending end can can specify that the data should not be cached, or the receiving end can specify that the cache is bypassed and the data fetched direct from the source. But al...

Re: Bookmark Manager - Line Too Long

I was surprised to find this. What is the limitation on line length in LBB? The same as it is in BBC BASIC (251 tokenized bytes), since LBB works by translating the Liberty BASIC code to BBC BASIC code! The translator will try to split lines that exceed that limit into multiple, shorter, lines, but...

Re: Not seeing red.

this should work? No. I would again refer you to the LB Help manual: ' print #handle, "backcolor COLOR": This command sets the color used when drawn figures are filled with a color '. The command doesn't do any drawing itself, as you seem to expect, it sets the fill colour of a subsequently drawn f...
