    Re: Gen X: The new punching bag?

    It's not an exact science. It's sort of like a "feel it out" kinda thing. GenX typically refer to those born in the 70s and 80s and Boomers precede that I believe. The Vietnam war, Malcolm X, Martin...

    If this is about your transpiler and you want to transpile similar behavior to VB6 from your language. It's actually not that difficult. VB6 modules provide most of what you need already. Lets go...

    Int is a function. Fully qualified it's actually VBA.Int. It takes a Variant and returns a Variant. TypeName cannot distinguish between type T and a Variant of type T.

    Well when you think about it, a jump is defined in terms of the program counter. A statement like jump to address 0x56fcab10 is exactly the same as saying set the program counter to 0x56fcab10.
