The forums are back!

The forums are back after a long downtime following server transitions, with no time on my part to deal with the aftermath. Unfortunately, the latest version of the database was lost in the process. I am very sorry about this. Luckily, as the forums have been rather quiet in recent years, the loss i...

Re: Search field in api document browser

Yes, that is one of the things that was planned for a long while...
That and actually improving the contents of the documentation.

Sadly our time is quite limited, but we'll do our best to prioritize this!

Re: Can i run Ecere+Gui to Html5???

Yes, they do take a little while to load, as the entire Ecere library in JavaScript is being downloaded. WebAssembly will make this faster. It might already be possible to generate WebAssembly instead of JavaScript with Binaryem. Another thing that might speed things up a great deal is having the Ec...

Re: Can i run Ecere+Gui to Html5???

Dear Lestroso, It took a while to get everything working smoothly, but we now officially support deploying to the web through Emscripten and WebGL with version 0.44.15. Sorry for taking so long. I've put together detailed instructions for targeting the web at this address: http://ecere.org/web/. You...

Re: project settings

Hi there, To be able to directly compile for another platform, you first need to setup a cross-compiler. I have never set up such a cross-compiler targeting Linux from Windows myself, but I've done the opposite (Building for Windows from Linux). Setting up Cygwin ( http://www.cygwin.com/ ) seems to ...

Re: Lexing and Parsing

Hi Yves, This is one of these times again where the forums didn't notify me of a new message! Sorry to take so long to reply... When I started writing the compiler for eC, I went with what I believed was the sensible approach and used Bison and Flex. Years later I strongly regret this decision. The ...

Re: How to Create an Iterator

Hi Yves, Before going all out on eC containers, keep in mind that they do come with a little bit of a performance cost. They are mainly meant for convenience, elegance and for dynamic containers. C arrays should still be used if you have a fixed number of elements and are not in need of this generic...

Re: How to Create an Iterator

Hi Yves, Iterators can only be used on eC containers, not C arrays. Here is a slightly modified version more in line with eC style and which the compiler is happy with: // define some domain specific data types class Coordinate : int; class Name : String;   // describe a Planet struct Planet { const...

Re: IDE Font Settings

Well I can help you build from source and tweak the font at the meet-up next week if you're dropping by. For the ffi.h error, you just need to either use that PKGCONFIG line to locate the ffi headers, or do a symlink to it in the standard include path. We're really looking forward to have this edito...
