LB Booster version 1.84 released
Post by Richard Russell on Jun 7th, 2012, 10:01pm

I'm pleased to announce the release of LB Booster version 1.84; it may be downloaded from here: (IDE/compiler) (optional runtime engine)

This new version addresses a few issues which have been identified since the last release, including:

  1. The DATE$ function has improved compatibility with LB4, in particular it will accept many more (undocumented) input formats such as DATE$("Feb/29/2012"). DATE$ may also be used for validation, so for example DATE$("Feb/29/2011") returns zero because 2011 was not a leap year.

  2. INPUT# and INPUTTO$() have improved compatibility with LB4 when the file being read has non-standard line terminations (for example LFCR rather than CRLF).

  3. LBB is no longer confused by a variable called Tab or Tab$ appearing in a PRINT statement.

  4. TRAPCLOSE now works correctly when the destination is a 'numeric' label, such as "trapclose [700]".

  5. File specifications may now contain spaces following a directory delimiter, for example "C:\ path\ filename" (where there is a space after the backslash).

  6. LBB will now accept assigning a numeric variable to a structure, without reporting a 'Type mismatch' error, for example 'numvar = mystruct.struct'.

  7. AS STRUCT is now treated identically to AS PTR, and the two may be used interchangeably. This appears to be the case in LB4.

  8. AS HANDLE is now accepted in structure declarations and CALLDLL.

  9. A bug which sometimes affected the use of BYREF parameters has been fixed.
