Core

Fix

Fixed an abnormal memory consumption when using string expressions. A temporary buffer used during string assignments was not cleared at the end of the operation doubling memory needed to perform the last operation



Core

Improve

Removed thinDict.dll library.

thinDict.dll was responsible for allocation/deallocation of all internal data (hash tables, data dictionaries, local and global variables, keywords, data types, ...). We have completely rewrite this code and incorporated directly inside thinCore.dll.



Core

Improve

Improved parsing compatibility: now SUB/END SUB are handled inside scripts. In reality all SUBs are considered internally as functions returning LONGs


2006.08.23

Core

Improve

Script execution speed increased by 5% to 15% especially for numeric expressions



Core

Fix

In some cases memory allocated for function local variable was not released


2006.08.22

Fix

Fixed GL include file plus some script examples

Psch


Core

Fix

Unary operation + not handled correctly



Core

Improve

DECLARE statement improved. thiNbasic now check presence of external library and function inside external library immediately before start parsing parameters. This will ensure function is ok before calling it. Also debug message box removed and a more clear runtime error will be generated.

Fix

Some keywords syntax colored by mistake due to error in APP_ListEquates function.

Psch


Core

Fix

APP_ListEquates function was also listing script variables and not only equates



Core

Improve

When declaring variables using DIM or LOCAL or GLOBAL, data type can be omitted (AS clause). If no data type specified, VARIANT will be assumed. So:

 

Dim V1, V2, V(10)

 

is now a valid statement to be used to declare 3 VARIANT variables.



Core

Fix

Fixed execution of obfuscated scripts not working when thinBasic changes version.
