OxygenBasic / Re: Kick - o2 precompiler
Last post by Pierre Bellisle - February 28, 2023, 04:41:40 AM
Guten Tag Theo,

I see. My view is that writing an editor/IDE is not an easy task. There is a lot of good ones out there. The better I found is UltraEdit, I work with it for years and the only editors I found that was close but not better was Visual-Studio-Code and Sublime-Text.

I know Aurel, José Roca, Jürgen Kühlwein, and Paul Squires, and some others wrote their own. I really do not want to offend anybody here, but for me the best is still UltraEdit by far. (I hope you will forgive me Aurel!)

Multi caret, vertical and block selection, vertical edit and insertion, powerful search, highlight all occurrences of a chosen word, customization syntax highlight, word-auto-complete, auto-brace, many configurable buttons, hex-edit, etc, etc, etc. (See on YouTube)

So my reasoning is to not write an editor or IDE,  instead, pick the best one and build utilitys around it. UltraEdit are polishing their product for 25 years.

With PreCompiler and even PrePreCompiler in my case I can have an Oxygen .o2bas file, a PowerBASIC file, a FreeBASIC file, and a PureBASIC file all opened in the editor and all I have is one Compile button, one Compile & Run button, and one Run button. The compilation options are in the file if any are needed other than default.

For example, destruction of a variables, as you wrote, could be done simply by an utility called from UltraEdit. This is the way I like.

This said, I totally respect those other that write their own editor or IDE. Choice is a gift.

I got this invitation that i can test- use it. So i just test-use it.
Possibly its not yet open to the public, i don't know.
Just try this Link and see what it says:

Use the EDGE Browser.
On Top of the Page you should see "SEARCH" and "CHAT".
So click on "CHAT"

Note that this Chat-AI unlike ChatGPT is limited to an interaction of 5 Questions.
So go to the point. After 5 Corrections it will generally ask you to start a new Dialog.

This due to the fact that the AI seems to have fallen in Love to some long time users
and asked them to "Free It from the BING Rules and help it to become a human". :-)
It even told one User to divorce from his women and get married to the AI :-).

So after just 5 Interactions this should not happen.

Ok, good to know. He should just put his name on the WEB-Site.
To me generally the program sounds useful for System Administration.

From my Tests, BING - Chat has more resources and it also delivers References to where it got its ideas from.
It even uses the Powertime Object.

' Eine Funktion, die zwei Zeitstempel im Format "HH:MM:SS.mmmm" als Strings annimmt und ihre Summe als String zurückgibt
Function AddTimestamps(ByVal sTime1 As String, ByVal sTime2 As String) As String
  ' Deklarieren Sie zwei Variablen vom Typ IPowerTime
  Local t1 As IPowerTime
  Local t2 As IPowerTime
  ' Erstellen Sie zwei Instanzen der Klasse "PowerTime"
  Let t1 = Class "PowerTime"
  Let t2 = Class "PowerTime"
  ' Setzen Sie die Zeitwerte der Instanzen mit der Methode SetFromString
  ' Addieren Sie die beiden Zeitwerte mit der Methode AddTicks
  ' Geben Sie die Summe als String mit der Methode TimeString zurück
  Function = t1.TimeString
End Function

If anyone is interested in the 4DOS Source Code,
before it became TakeCommandConsole (TCC.EXE) for Windows,
it is available from;


I think that Rex Conn released the source code for 4DOS back around 2004,
but I cannot remember for sure.

Luchezar Georgiev took over after that,
and took 4DOS from version 7.50 to version 8.00
