The work on the next major version has started.
As most of the advanced features are addressed with libraries, the next version focus is on optimizing the Basic4ppc engine.
Another important improvement will be a far better syntax checker.
This will allow finding more bugs before running the code.
An optional variable initialized check is added.
Structure variables (example: point.X, point.Y) will also be supported on the next version.
Many more features will be added.

Super news !

Hi again.

Erel ... I'm very pleased that version 5 of B4PPC will be much much faster.
That's very important especially for applications running on Pocket PC.
It would be also very nice to add the possibility of using brackets in logic of IF statement.

For instance:

IF ((a=5) and (b=9)) or (c=2) then ....do something....

similar to VB or VB.NET.

Greetings,

Will multiple textline selection as remark be possible? I find this very useful when adding original codes or text (in other languages) at the end of the program. Now I have to begin every line with a '.
Also the use of a toggle wordwrap would be useful. On the PPC text and its buildup is much better to judge without the wordwrap, also shorter.
Thanks in advance and good luck with the next versions!

The next version will not support VGA (640 * 480).
As with the current version, you will be able to run Basic4ppc applications but not use the higher resolution (double pixeling).

Hi Erel,

it would be good if a searching function existed in the PPC version, because I mostly program on the PPC.

Thank you for helping,

Ciao

I second Filippo's request as I too program mostly on the device :)

Filippo, it is usaully best to place requests into the B4PPC Wishlist folder with each request added as a new topic.
