Wow guys, really?  Please keep in mind that Galleon has final say of any mods that happen to QB64. Saying that this is better, that is better, is fine.  But I believe Galleon made his point pretty clear.

Let's play nice :)

I also want OPTION EXPLICIT.  This option has caught many-a-typo in VisualBasic.


In addition ...
An option to save source code when "RUN".
An option to have source code name have an extension other than .BAS  (BAS should be the default, but other extensions should be allowed)
An option to name the EXE module to something other than the same name as the source code.
An option to put the EXE module in a directory other than the current directory.

STOP and SYSTEM close the window immediately which prevents me from reading any output that was recently placed on the screen.  I substituted END, which works fine except that END sits in a CPU loop waiting for the user to strike a key.  The CPU should be relinquished to other tasks. (Note: I circumvented this issue with "CLOSE:SLEEP:SYSTEM", but a simple "END" would have been easier to type.)

A Secretary would be kinda expensive...How about an OPTION to TYPE the code FOR you?  ::)

Like usual, Galleon has suggested a very good idea. The only problem is that this means you have to use the IDE to take advantage of this, so it should only be implemented after the IDE is fixed.

I still say we should have OPTION EXPLICIT_LANGUAGE... whenever you mistype something, have it say something vulgar and profane to you.  It would be just like having an ex (or Clippy!) over your shoulder as you code!

Code: [Select]
Error: It's "PRINT" not "rpint", @#%^&$$!

HEY GOOD IDEA!

Galleon ADD CLIPPY to the IDE! People will use it just to swear at me every day! GREAT IDEA!

If you need a better picture, I have more!  ;D ADD ME TO THE HELP SYSTEM!

The heck with Bill Gates! I have bigger things in my future!  ;)

    I dont think I could have Clippy in the IDE.  At first it'd be all like "You DUMB@$$!  WHY are you still TYPing!" and the classic "THAT IS STUPID!  Do you want some one to TYPE your code FOR YOU!?!"....
    eventually it would be: *Turn computer on.  Start QB64.* and get  "Unexpected Error.  Clippy says you are an UNHANDLED EXCEPTION!  You are not allowed to report this error."  :-\

Anyway I guess if you think about it Galleons solution, while not OPTION EXPLICIT, is close enough.  I'll take something over nothing any day. *mumbles* still wish we had option explicit.

Don't worry. You (we) will have OPTION EXPLICIT.
If others choose to not use it, that's their loss.

As for Clippy, his bullshit is not cute or funny anymore.
It never was, but it has gotten way beyond being old.

One of my first posts here was a comment about the way
he was posting, something along the lines of,
"Why is he allowed to post here like that?"

And then people started making excuses for his behavior.

I thought he must be some immature, infantile, juvenile,
prepubescent, petulant child with temper tantrum issues,
if not emotional and/or mental issues.

Unfortunately, it's actually much worse than that.

It will be a good day when people finally tire enough of
his extreme asininity and start demanding that he either
be censured or banned.

What we need is an Occupy QB64 Movement where we 99%
decide we're not going to put up with Ted's 1% status.

I'm going to step up here and say something, because this has gone too far and gotten out of hand.

I do not, in any way, support all of the things Clippy says or does.  There have even been a few occasions where he has lashed out at me, and I have had to defend myself.  But here is the thing: I am an adult.  I do not presume that everyone else here is, though by some of the things that are said, I am going to assume that MOST of us ARE in fact, adults.

Whether we like it or not, we should be acting like it.  Sure -- it's easy to say "f*ck you!" or "go to hell!", but what we should be doing is actually coming to a solution... peacefully.

We ARE a community, dammit!  To the best of my knowledge, there are no other QB64 forums or sites out there!  We are IT!  How would something like this look to an outsider?  What would even make them want to come in and make a post, if they see assinine bullshit like this going on?

I'm not taking sides on this.  All I'm saying is that it needs to stop.  Let's do something important.  Like write a friggin' program.

And that's all I have to say about that.
