I agree GLBasic is alot of fun. I can why it would have a bad reputation with features such as GOTO. Most languages adapt but BASIC seems to remain static in design. Removing GOTO and updating types to work similar to c++ structs would increase program design while keeping its simplicity.

Yes, GLBasic is great! The reason the big guys don't use BASIC as a language is largely because of the (undeservedly) bad reputation it has.

I'm not a pro, but i have read a few books.
And to give credit where it's due, Gernot was a huge influence on my thirst for math.
I'm looking forward to more entries!

About the program, it was simply really.
It was a benchtest program to show what the function DrawStar() could do.
DrawStar was a brainstorm, as you can see in the remarks of the function showing a progression of the idea.
All the effects, are a result of using several combinations and configurations of this function:
Code: GLBasic [Select]
DrawStar(x%, y%, Color#, NumberOfPoints%, TextureID%, Rotate#, Depth#)

Hemlos is a very very good programmer.

A professional level.

Yes, It's became my main language.
For windows, there is no real limit

I just started a DirectX wrapper for an old (but awesome) 3D engine, the interaction between GLB and C is totally awesome.
I feel like I can do what I want, it's exhilarating.

I'm using the same version with no problems at all.

Your not just copying/pasting from another editor, then doing a direct compile? GLBasic changes the case of key words as you type.

Also try this option on and off...

"Reformat code only when compiling"

...in the "Tools", "Options" menu(Usually off). To see if it makes a difference.

Last case scenario, ZIP up the project and allow me to try it to see how it runs on my setup, in case you project is corrupt in some way.

It was the "Reformat code only when compiling" option causing the problem. I don't remember checking this but at least it is working now.

Thanks

Yup, totally agree! I'm continuously reminded how well GLBasic syntax has been designed. Its as complex as you want, yet simple enough for first time coders. Optional inline C, is such a valuable feature too, I am amazed that none of the big-boys (Unity etc.) have it as a feature!  :happy:

This is an experimental piece i tinkered with a few years ago, hardly worth being called art.

I disagree, very much art!  ;)

I take a moment to thank Gernot, I'm testing a lot right now the INLINE function, DLL and the interaction between the GLBasic and the C, and that's great.
All functions and variables of GLBasic can be used directly in C (I already knew it but I had never really tested it, it's amazing of ease).

I even wonder if a version of Basic reserved for Windows (using DirectX) would not be a good idea.
A future DXBasic?

You did an amazing job Gernot, I congratulate you  :good:

Sorry if my English is not perfect, it's hard for me, a lover of the Basic and the C since a long time (a little less for the C++ it's right  =D) to explain that with the good words in english.

Saw this the other day, this looks like another cool option using a virtual machine this time...
