    Re: twinBASIC Programming Features documentation

    I really need to get on finishing that... everything is listed (that I know of, I just found another new feature left off the list last week after starting that like 6mo ago-- binary literals, &B010101)... but down by the bottom it's still just the list without lengthier explanation.

    If anyone wants to write the sections on generics and Implements Via, those are incomplete because I don't really understand the syntax and usage enough to write a good explanation and I've been hoping someone else would at least pick those two up. If you do you can send it to me to post; I have write access.

    Re: twinBASIC Programming Features documentation

    I've read the documentation several times now and each time I become increasingly excited about the prospects of TwinB as a replacement for VB6. Looking forward to using it in anger.

    This reads fantastic, all these are not just like features of VB7 but something out of VB8 and beyond! :-))

    Btw, this topic could be split up into several sub-pages. Currently it starts with hot advanced topics du jour and laters returns to more basic ones which is anti-climatic and counterintuitive somehow IMO.

    cheers,

    Re: twinBASIC Programming Features documentation

    It absolutely feels like that to be sure, but the '424' is referring to the new features introduced by Beta 424, the first release after the dark days of the 2 month refactor

    The sort order I was going for was to list the big-ticket items first in each section, the things that are a huge deal. Binary literals and /* */ comments are nice, but they're not the headliners that make people think "omg I've got to get tB NOW!" like 64bit, multithreading, etc.

    Re: twinBASIC Programming Features documentation

    Keep in mind that I do not do any twinBasic development, but I think the reasoning behind Microsoft's XML documentation and Java's JavaDoc documentation is two-fold:
    1. Using attributes (aka decorators) could lead to a potential code conflict
    2. Using comments means that the documentation would not be compiled


    I would suggest considering these points if that's in fact what you're trying to build here, of course I could be completely misunderstanding what you're trying to do.
