    I was far better with B4PPC than I am with B4A!

    Very interesting. Especially for those, like me, who are too young to know these things :D

    Geotrail was the user that first started a Basic4ppc forum, lodging it on his own server...
    Basic4ppc.geotrail.no is no longer accessible but never will it be forgotten

    And how did you exchange before to have been provided a forum ? Was it a mailinglist ?

    Basic4ppc version 3.0 new features (August 2006):

    This was the first version that created executables. Previous versions required a "runner" program to start the actual program.
    It was still an interpreter but the interpreter engine together with the "compiled code" were embedded in the executable.

    Libraries were not supported at that time.

    i wonder how the list's for b4a/b4i look like ... i believe 5 times longer...
    ***********

    when i have an app idea or want to imporve (fix bugs) on my running app i also write down on a paper and then i mark those features i have done... i always asked my self why i dont make a simple app that will do it now i see i am not the only one that use the old antic tools like a pencil and a piece of paper :D

    BTW: your writing is much clearer then mine, sometimes i really need to guess what i have wrote down...

    Do you keep all your notes erel?

    Or you prepare the book that will summarize the history of a success story for the next few years ;-)
