Core

Change

FUNCTION returning parameter is now optional. If omitted a LONG value will be assumed.


2006.01.05

Core

Improve

thinBasic passes parameters to functions as BYVAL. It means that a copy of the variable or expression is allocated inside the function. Changes to this copy will not effect any data outside the function.

Now you can pass variables to functions by reference using BYREF just in front of parameter declaration. In this way, the address of the variable is passed. Any change to the variable passed BYREF will also effect passed variable outside the function.

You can pass BYREF any numeric or string variable. Full arrays passed BYREF are not still supported but single array elements are OK.


2006.01.04

BIFF

Fix

.XLS files created with BIFF module were not compatible with OpenOffice due to incorrect file type marker
