Post by Richard Russell on Jun 15th, 2013, 8:20pm

I am pleased to announce the release of LB Booster version 2.00, the fastest and most compatible version yet! It may be downloaded from here: (IDE/compiler) (optional runtime engine)

Changes in this version include:

  1. AT LAST! support for huge strings (with up to millions of characters), greatly improving compatibility with LB4.

  2. Increased integer range, from -18,446,744,073,709,551,615 to +18,446,744,073,709,551,615 (>18 billion billion!).

  3. Increased floating-point range (from less than 1E-4900 to more than 1E+4900) and precision (about 19 decimal digits) which are both much better than those of LB4.

  4. The binary AND, OR and XOR operators now work on 64-bit integer values (previously only 32 bits were supported).

  5. A new 'include' directive supports modular programming and code libraries!

  6. The FILES statement puts the file's attributes in info$(n,3) (an undocumented feature of LB4).

  7. The TEXTEDITOR will accept Unix-style line endings (LF).

  8. The LOF function, the LOC function and the SEEK statement now support files longer than 4 Gbytes.
