I have the core compiler working for the most part.
Now writing the lib code for IWB.

LarryMc sent me some code - now taking a step back to figure out some of it.

Anyway - still working on it almost everyday for a couple of hours. Rest of my time
goes to work around the farm.

Exciting. Is that still 32-bit, or a new 64-bit version?

Sounds great!

What new features are we going to get?

64 bit - total re-write of the compiler - still a bit to go.
Seems every time I change something I break two other things.

Yes Larry,

I wish I had a pound / dollar for every time it's happened to me.

Keep going!

If you are only breaking 2 more things then you are doing better than a lot of us.  Most of us fix one bug to create 5 more.

Keep on trucking.....

When all else fails, get a bigger hammer.

The "code" that I sent Larry was for him to test his new compiler. In order to give it as good a test as possible at this stage it needed to test as much functionality as possible without the code itself  being so complicated as to be overwhelming in size.
In the last 10 years I haven't written any "little" programs when you consider the IDE, IWB+, and my other offerings. When I looked through everything I had done I chose to give him the source code to the IWGrid program. Here's what it has in it:

1. It's a project; multiple source files
2. It has a resource file
3. It uses the "stdafx.inc" include file arrangement
4. It uses user defined parameter types
5. It uses the "windowssdk.inc" include file
6. It contains control sub-classing
7. It contains extensive drawing commands in a custom .lib file
8. It contains an .o object file.


I figure if the new compiler can compile that program it will handle the vast majority of the programs the current users are writing. What I can't address is graphic library and I don't have a good dbase program to test.
