QB64 uses C++ to compile a BAS program into an executable program. The following is a list of the C FUNCTIONs that can be used.

Note: C++ Header files should be placed in the QB64 folder and are not required after a program is compiled.


Note: QB64 requires all DLL files to either be with the program or in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder!

Example 1: How to use the SUB memmove to transfer TYPE data when using Libraries.

TYPE a 'Note: the TYPE must be placed before the DECLARE LIBRARY if used in it! b AS DOUBLE c AS LONG END TYPE DECLARE LIBRARY SUB memmove (Dest AS a, Source AS a, BYVAL bytesize AS LONG) END DECLARE DIM d(10) AS a d(0).b = 1.5 d(0).c = 99 memmove d(10), d(0), LEN(d()) 'LEN gives the total byte size of the TYPE PRINT d(10).b PRINT d(10).c

1.5 99

Explanation: When a TYPE variable is moved to another variable or array index, all TYPE dot values are moved with it.


Example 2: Creating different memset functions for each variable type to be used.

DECLARE LIBRARY FUNCTION memsetB& ALIAS memset (p AS _BYTE, BYVAL c AS _UNSIGNED LONG, BYVAL n AS _UNSIGNED LONG) FUNCTION memsetI& ALIAS memset (p AS INTEGER, BYVAL c AS _UNSIGNED LONG, BYVAL n AS _UNSIGNED LONG) FUNCTION memsetL& ALIAS memset (p AS LONG, BYVAL c AS _UNSIGNED LONG, BYVAL n AS _UNSIGNED LONG) END DECLARE DIM Barray(1 TO 10) AS _BYTE res& = memsetB(Barray(1), 65, 5) FOR i = 1 TO 10 PRINT Barray(i); 'display BYTE array decimal values NEXT PRINT: PRINT DIM Larray(1 TO 10) AS LONG res& = memsetL(Larray(1), 65, 5) FOR i = 1 TO 10 PRINT Larray(i); 'displays LONG array decimal values NEXT i PRINT FOR i = 1 TO 10 PRINT " " + HEX$(Larray(i)); 'displays each byte value &H41 = 65 NEXT i

Code example by stylin
Explanation: When 5 bytes are put into a 4 byte LONG array value, the fifth byte goes into the next array element.

Bit Shifting

Create the bitshift.h text file in the QB64 Folder. Use the LIBRARY Declarations in the code below it.

// bitshift.h unsigned int LBitShift (int Value, int ShiftValue) { return(Value << ShiftValue); } unsigned int RBitShift (int Value, int ShiftValue) { return(Value >> ShiftValue); }

Code by Unseen Machine

DECLARE LIBRARY "Bitshift" 'use first name of .h file FUNCTION RBitShift (BYVAL Value AS LONG, BYVAL ShiftValue AS LONG) FUNCTION LBitShift (BYVAL Value AS LONG, BYVAL ShiftValue AS LONG) END DECLARE n = 12 LS = 3 RS = 2 PRINT LBitShift(n, LS)' 'C code PRINT RBitShift(n, RS) LeftShift = INT(n * (2 ^ LS))' 'QB code by RThorpe RightShift = INT(n / (2 ^ RS)) PRINT LeftShift PRINT RightShift

Bit Casting

Header file: Cast.h

float bitcast(int t) { return *(float*)&t; } int swap_endian(unsigned int k) { return (k>>24)|((k<<8) & 0x00FF0000)|((k>>8) & 0x0000FF00)|(k<<24); }

Console Window

//Console.h #include <iostream> void ConsoleWindow() { bool x = AllocConsole(); freopen("CONOUT$", "wt", stdout); } void CloseConsole() { bool x = FreeConsole(); } void C_Print (const char* text) { std::cout << text << std::endl; }

ConsoleWindow C_Print "You can use this window to debug your code!" DO _LIMIT 10 IF i% < 50 THEN i% = i% + 1 ELSE i% = 0 C_Print STR$(i%) LOOP CloseConsole DECLARE LIBRARY "Console" SUB ConsoleWindow SUB CloseConsole SUB C_Print (Text$) END DECLARE

Note: The CPrint SUB must be created in the header file used! DECLARE LIBRARY can be placed anywhere in QB64 programs.


Using AllocConsole and SetCurrentDirectory to find the contents of the QB64 intenal\c folder without an H file in Windows only.

DECLARE LIBRARY SUB AllocConsole ' Windows specific command SUB SetCurrentDirectory (d$) 'Windows specific command SUB sys ALIAS system (s AS STRING) 'system cannot be used as the QB64 SUB name END DECLARE _DELAY 1 'focus on console window AllocConsole SetCurrentDirectory "internal\c" + CHR$(0) sys "dir"

Note: The _DELAY places console in front of QB64 window. Click it to close both. The console window file list can be scrolled.

Example 1: Using trailzcount to speed up the process of finding the prime factors of a number.

DECLARE LIBRARY "fastmath" FUNCTION TrailZCount% ALIAS Misc_TrailZCount (BYVAL vals AS LONG) END DECLARE INPUT "enter a number: ", xt& tabs = TrailZCount%(xt&) PRINT "the prime factors of"; xt&; " are:"; IF tabs THEN FOR i = 1 TO tabs PRINT 2; NEXT i END IF x& = xt& / (2 ^ tabs) c& = 3 WHILE c& <= x& WHILE x& MOD c& = 0 x& = x& / c& PRINT c&; WEND c& = c& + 1 WEND PRINT


Example 2: Using parity to detect single bit errors simulated using unsetrmbit.

'parity checking code which may be used in order to detect a download error: 'will also use the bitset function to simulate a download error .bitset unsets the lowest set bit 'parity checking code which may be used in order to detect a download error: 'will also use the bitset function to simulate a download error .bitset unsets the lowest set bit DECLARE LIBRARY "fastmath" FUNCTION parity& ALIAS Misc_Parity (BYVAL val AS LONG) FUNCTION unsetrmbit& ALIAS Misc_UnSetRMBit (BYVAL vals AS LONG) END DECLARE TYPE DLDATA par AS _BIT dataa AS LONG END TYPE DIM values(1) 'here is where the data is created g& = 8 h& = 9 values.par(0) = parity&(g&) values.dataa(0) = g& values.par(1) = parity&(h&) values.dataa(1) = h& 'transfer and error in values.dataa(1) values.dataa(1) = unsetrmbit&(values.dataa(1)) 'checking for single bit errors in download FOR i = 0 TO 1 IF values.par(i) = parity&(values.dataa(i)) THEN PRINT "no single bit errors detected in in data packet"; i ELSE PRINT "error found in data packet"; i END IF NEXT
