    Hm, since I heared it many times: would a builtin editor be a pro or a con? I always thought, that external editors are better because they have really good fetures which are specialized on editing which one could never build oneself.

    I may be a bit biased, but I can of course comment on some of your remarks: Encryption: X11-Basic supports encryption but you would need to compile it youself, because a law (the patriot act) forbits to export software which does (strong) encryption from USA. And since the google playstore is on USA terretory.... So Encryption is not compiled in by default. There is an interface to SQL databases (see sqlite3). It comes with the apk for Anroid. Zip and 7z access is not supported. However there is...

    Well, a well performing implementation would be very(!) difficult. All other implementation would slow down X11-Basic a lot, thats why I hesitate. In my opinion the usefullness of these data types is some how limited and more a matter of convinience. If your project really needs this, maybe python would be a better language.

    Hi Elmar, Ok, maybe we can find a way to represent everything in Strings. At the moment this already works als for arrays (MKA$() CVA()) So all the memory allocation stuff is there. Just the syntay would be a major problem, because the parser and compiler etc. needed to be changed (a lot). As a first step, I would like to implement it "sort of" in native X11-basic functions, which is maybe slow, but would not need add-ons to the syntax. Like t$=@store_value("Tag","value") val$=@get_value(t$,"Tag")...

    Hi Elmar, no, it is currently not planned to extend the language in that direction. But if you need to use structs, you can pack values together into a string (with MKI$() etc.). Array indicies with strings, Hm.... Maybe in future, but if one needs a database mechanism, I always recommend mysql. This can be accessed via X11-Basic and the sqlite3 binary. Sorry. But: Do you have a suggestion for the syntax of such an implementation?

    I am struggling to install on MAC Have MacPorts gcc5 and also X11 Quartz also run latest xcode 8.3.2 with command line installed when I run ./configure Configuring X11-Basic with following features: Install prefix: /usr/local Cryptographic features = no Small RAM version = no German version = no Produce only static libraries = no Use X Window system = yes Use SDL library = no Use framebuffer = no Use readline library = yes Support USB = yes Support bluetooth = yes checking for xbasic... no checking...

    If you encounter segfaults with some examples this most likely come from the 64 bit architecture. Any example using PEEK, POKE, VARPTR() can not work because the variables are only 32 bit integers and the do not convert to 64 bit memory adresses. This problem has nothing to to with the OS-X but with adaption to 64 bit operating systems in general. There is also a paragraph on this topic in the manual. I have no solution to this so far. btw: many example programs use pointers to memory... but when...

    Hi, I have worked a little bit on the 64bit specific errors. You can checkout this version with: git fetch origin 64bit git checkout 64bit Some more example programs should work now. You can now make limited use of PEEK/POKE/VARPTR etc. Update 2017-04: I have merged the 64bit stuff to the main branch now. Do bot use the branches apple and 64bit anymore.
