Gee, I'm not used to developers delivering products on time.
These are significant improvements, indeed.

About downloading and installing: should I remove v2.80 before downloading 3.0, or will 3.0 overlay 2.80?

You're pretty much just downloading an executable, so you can rename your previous version and dump the new one in the same place. I haven't found any significant bugs in 3.0 yet, but I'm hanging onto 2.8 just in case.

Richard, this is superb - but those of us who are also BBC BASIC for Windows users have come to expect no less. This new version also allows me the chance to experiment with OOP using BASIC, which is brilliant and the syntax colouring means even less need to revert back to the original LB IDE. Congratulations and many thanks for your continued efforts on this.

What about something like this (reminiscent of VB)?
Code:
function myFunction(parameter as MyObject) 

What do you expect to be able to do with the object once you've got it into the function? Given the OOP model I've adopted for LBB all you could do is call its methods:

Code:
call parameter::method
lvar = parameter::method() 

Can you give an example of how you think such a facility might actually be used in practice?

Richard,
what a star you are. This new release runs me short on superlatives. I love the IDE colouring and the OOP is sending shivers down me timbers....

Now if someone would come up with include files with some good old fashioned SQLITE and JSON handling we could set the PC world alight with this 'new' BASIC.

Well done, and I am very glad that you didn't feel the need to set aside your keyboard and abandon LBB as it looked like you might last year. The coding world would have been much the poorer had that happened.

"Now if someone would come up with include files ..."

Did you miss the include statement:

!include fileName$

User 'michael' has posted at the LB Community forum: "I like Liberty Basic and would like to push its limits. The one thing I am working on is making special functions that would make liberty basic have Object Orientated abilities". Will somebody kindly reply with a link to this thread, or alternatively a link to the LBB help here (as permitted by Alyce):

Please don't fret over it.
The reason stated was along lines "LBB is great, LBB having OOP is great, but mentioning LBB in the "Liberty Basic Testimonials" is wrong place".

Yes. Being banned from the LB Community Forum was the final straw. I've now removed LBB from my products page and announced that it's discontinued.

Having said that, I don't intend to take down the LBB webpage or download, and I expect this forum to remain, at least while there are still a few users out there.

Since I am no longer monitoring this forum regularly I would welcome volunteers to be moderators, to look after day-to-day admin such as deleting spam posts or moving threads to a more appropriate place. If anybody is interested, email me.
