  1. Re: [RESOLVED] Can VB simulate all pointer operations in C language?

    Because it didn't fit their strategies and the direction they intended for the languages yet to come.

    Agreed, but surely they should also be intelligent enough to know when to argue or when it is just not acceptable to do so? By now, they should really know when to stop. Otherwise they have just...

    NO Olaf, YOU are doing it again! Arguing the wrong argument on the wrong part of the forum.

    This thread is about doing the opposite of that and here you are doing it AGAIN.

    That's a bit deep... are you saying that they come here due to an inherent lack of self-belief or a lack of belief in their chosen technology?

    The .NET/VB6 argument should NEVER be argued on any thread in the VB6 forum unless .NET is the only solution. Niya might argue that is always the case but that is obviously just utter bollox and no...

    Well, this is DEFINITELY not a web app so these additions are as off-topic as the Mercedes 190 timing chain drive.

    Good car, chain timing I believe. No rubbish belts there. I was fond of the 190, compact and reliable.

    Agreed, completely. VB is extremely stable isn't it?
  33. Re: [RESOLVED] VB6: Question - Databases, where do I start?

    Precisely! That is why I think that remaining with a flatfile DB (Bag o'crap) for the present may be a good idea as it will work almost anywhere as long as TB's RB's VB6 i/o functions are replicated....
