    Online Help

    Hi,

    there is a link which leads to an error page:

    here https://www.thinbasic.com/public/pro...chine_code.htm

    and here too : https://www.thinbasic.com/public/pro...tml?oxygen.htm

    also, here https://www.thinbasic.com/public/pro...thinbundle.htm it is said that : "After execution, all extracted files will be deleted." Do the files remain on the disk if there is an execution error or if the program is terminated by the user ?

    and this page and following are blank : https://www.thinbasic.com/public/pro..._class_add.htm
    I landed on this last page from here:https://www.thinbasic.com/public/pro...ml?classes.htm and wanted to know if it's still thinBasic script and what use one may do of it.

    and, for reference, there is no entry in the manual for the 'TO' keyword

    '---Load Console Module
    Uses "Console"
    
    dim myString as String
    
    myString = chr$(ASC("A") to asc("Z"))
    
    PrintL ("Displaying characters from A to Z...")
    PrintL (myString)
    
    Printl("")
    PrintL "Press a key to end program"
    
    '---Wait for a key press
    WaitKey

    Feedback

    Hi,

    more feedback:
    here https://www.thinbasic.com/public/products/thinBasic/help/html/numericvariables.htm
    line named "3" : it seems that in place of the not-keyword NUMERIC it has to be the NUMBER keyword

    by the way, what to use for unsigned quad (uint64) ? https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc230387.aspx

    The files extracted temporarily from the bundle are stored alongside the program (bundle) file but are marked with a "hidden" attribute. Thus they won't be normally visible to the user unless the Windows Explorer is set to display hidden files.

    On normal termination the extracted files are deleted from the disk and release the disk space until the next program invocation.

    On abnormal termination the extracted files will however reside on the disk until the next program invocation when they are overwritten with fresher copies. If then the program terminates normally, the files will be deleted completely in a usual way.

    unless I am mistaken,in this case, this does not behave like this to me: a new unique folder is created each time, so it remains until manually deleted.

    about this I posted this today : https://www.thinbasic.com/community/...hp?issueid=547
