You could always use my trusty Got Here! debugger.  ;D

This is what cint reports when I load the Test.c program from within cint. This tells me that it's not an execution issue but a syntactical problem cint is having with the code. My guess is that your doing something beyond the capabilities of the interpreter.

I agree that we should put CINT aside and revisit it as an option when time permits. My conCERNs are that cint is being phased out for a C++ only solution. (CLING) As much as I would like to have an interpreter/debugger to compliment the C BASIC offering, it's taking too much time from more important aspects of this project.

C Basic Class Library - BASIC string functions
« Reply #47 on: November 13, 2013, 11:14:15 AM »
Charles,

Can you post a few examples of #define(s) that I can use in my keyword table?

DIM AS STRING w;

#define UCASE
#define MID
#define LEFT
#define INSTR

This will help me understand how strings are created and manipulated with string functions.

Hi John,

Bypassing OOP function tables, where A is the target StringObject, and B is the source. (A and B can be the same)

#define UCASE(A,B) StringUcase(&A,B)

similar here

#define MID(A,B,C,D) StringGetMid(&A,B,C,D)


I am embroiled in further strictures to make the library compile with VC10.

I'm assuming this will work like the object version I did before?

#define UCASE(x) StringUcase(&x, x)

How do I emulate a DIM AS STRING like #define. Is there only one kind of string in C BASIC?

yes you can UCASE to self, as with most of the other string functions.



    dim as StringObject  wo=NewString(100);

    #define STRING StringObject

  DIM AS STRING wo=NewString(100) //suitable approx buffer size

I have downgraded the code to make it compatible with VC10, as well as GCC 6.7. It might be more palatable for other compilers too, since it is very plain C, with all variables declared first, no scopes, and no case ranges.

To put that in terms I can understand, are you saying that your code is being seen by Cling as C with C++ attributes?

Since Cling thinks it's a hotshot C++ interpreter now, I thought I would test your current code on the old CINT standard.

Dynamic Strings in C

What is the downside of using a dynamic string scheme like THIS?

<string.h> seems to have most of the string manipulation routines in its library.

String.h is okay for null terminated ascii strings.

The string object defined in StringClass.h has length and char width attributes, and automatic buffering. - more like a Basic string

When I concatenate a string with the new library, do I have to worry about string lengths? Keep in mind I have been spoiled by SB so it's going to be weird having to deal with this again.

No, the only thing left to do is free the strings before they go out of scope. There isn't an automatic garbage collector. (Yet)
