Re: Help Files

Would some kind soul tell me again how to convert a HLP file to CHM. I'm not sure that you can, easily. Google finds some info, but it's not something I have ever tried. What has been discussed before is converting the LB help files (which are in HTML format, not HLP ) to CHM. The procedure for tha...

Re: LB5 emulation?

Carl Gundel is promising alpha testing of LB5 by January. LB5 alpha testing began a long time ago, I think. A few people here (Anatoly?, Rod?) are probably amongst the select few who have had the opportunity to try it in its early incarnations. LB5 was first announced by Carl in around 2006 with a ...

Re: Calculation discrepancies

Usually, a slight modification to the above algorithm... As you say, "usually". But it's risky, because you are not determining precisely whether a value is an integer but only that it is very close to an integer, and that might not always be good enough. It's far better, when possible, to devise a...

Is there a way that let me know Dose my program Run under LB OR LBB? It's in the Help manual, at the end of the Compatibility section. There it says: " If, exceptionally, the only way to achieve compatibility is to use different code for LB4 and LBB you can test which platform your program is runni...

It was a lot of fun to program with LBB. I was focused on LBB right from the start. Compatibility with Liberty Basic was not my goal. That's why I've used some BBC-Basic functions that made it easier.
Thanks for sharing.

Re: math range errors in EVAL not raised/bogus results

But it seems LBB has problems reporting such errors from EVAL This issue arises from the fact that BBC BASIC's EVAL can return either a number or a string, whereas LB's EVAL has two different forms: EVAL() to return a number and EVAL$() to return a string. The way LBB deals with this difference is ...

Misleading comment at LB forum

I don't read the Liberty BASIC or Just BASIC forums any more (and haven't done for several months) but a kind person alerted me to this comment recently posted at the LB forum: " The .tkn is your .bas program compiled to Smalltalk ". This was posted by somebody who knows perfectly well that it isn't...

Re: Executable !

next time we run the program, we will find it updated Yes, when you next run the program it will replace the file with the original embedded version, and any changes will be thrown away! The best thing to do is to embed an 'initial' ('default') data file, then when the program runs it can check whe...

Would you believe that my membership of the Just BASIC forum has been disabled, and all my posts there deleted, for the (apparently) heinous crime of pointing out that JB behaves untypically (in a specific, highly technical, respect) compared with every other dialect of BASIC and every other program...

Re: Name of the day by LBB date function

One of the good features that we can display the name of the day simply by using date$() under LBB, more work and calculation should be done under LB. The full set of formatting options for DATE$() is here . However I still think it is a serious limitation of LBB (and LB) that you only have those o...
