Morning All,

[citation needed]


I had a search last night (in bed - how sad am I?) and found a thread started by Marq (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=446) whi hasn't been seen since 2014. However, the thread is this one: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=306 ( Vbcc (C compiler) proof-of-concept). Looks like it started, then finished after getting "something working".

He has a blog entry on his blog (no! Really! On his blog???? ;-) ) at http://www.kameli.net/marq/?p=1251 with a brief description and a download link for his code, http://www.kameli.net/~marq/kode/vbcc-qdos-poc.zip, which needs to be extracted over the vbcc code and compiled.

A project for another day perhaps!


Cheers,
Norm.

More progress.

As of lunchine today, I have a working C[68] system that emulates the SuperBASIC features of LOCal variables. Currently for floats, integers and strings only. It's tested and works fine.

Next step is to figure out multi-dimensional arrays of float, integer and strings - but I have a few thought going around in my head on the matter.

Once I'm done, I'll put the two files and a demo up on github, and some docs too, just in case there is any interest. (Even if not, it serves as an off-site backup!)

If I can get all this figured out, a C68Port is a step closer - at least I'll know how to handle LOCals anyway!


Cheers,
Norm.
