C++ If this or that?

If the range of case values is limited, using an array lookup may be faster than a switch statement.

Using Cobra

15th June 2018

I bought it but didn't get much use out of it. I found it a bit buggy. Compared to BMax the Pascal language was limited (no OOP) as was Windows only support. The .EXE generated was a bit hefty too.

GamePascal

3rd December 2013

Still in alpha, so risk of becoming vaporware. Not sure why anyone would pay for yet another Pascal when mature & stable FreePascal is already out there, with SDL binding. Now also supports Android.

I don't get why they want you to know Python for introductory AI. Learning Lisp or Prolog would make more sense.

Unlikely. The library functions would be C/C++ not BlitzBasic.

array Problem

Can't you just use the Replace$ function?

[code]

Function CHECK(E$[16])
For X = 1 To 16
E[X] = Replace(E[X],"B","*")
Print E[X]
Next
End Function[/code]

array Problem

10th January 2012

I guess if you use that method, you may as well not use an array at all.
i.e. just use the built-in type iterators. They're stored in a linked-list, so effectively you'd have a dynamic array.

array Problem

9th January 2012

I'm no Blitz expert, so apologies if this is utter crap.

It seems to me you could wrap the string array in a custom type.
This would be passed by reference, e.g.

[code]
Const Max = 5

Type StringArray
Field s$[Max]
End Type

If you're seeking to illustrate the use of references, it's a bad example.

Not wanting to appear too critical... but the return statement in your increment() function is completely redundant.

Actually, the function itself is inefficient and would pro*snip*
