BlitzMax 1.5 Commands
« on: August 05, 2021, 19:17:31 »
BlitzMax 1.5 Commands.

Is there a book or site that lists every command and actually gives an Example to demonstrate it's use!?

The Help in Blitzmax dosent do this! If one dosent know all the commands available or even understand how to use them. It makes programming and learning very difficult! Even guesswork!

More and more languages seem to be doing this  :-X

I miss the old computer manuals that came with the computer every command listed and examples to understand the concept of using it!  :D

No, lots of BRL commands went without examples and often had no description. There was a great language reference but the module reference for BRL and PUB were largely unfinished, MaxGui had complete help section though. I wrote docs updates for a few modules (math, linkedlist, map, bank) but they were never included with BRL Blitzmax. The good news is that the module reference for NG Blitzmax has fixed this including examples. Thanks Brucey!

Are you sure Baggey? With the cursor inside the command and then pressing F1 gives you nothing?
