Hey @jsalai, glad you found us.

Any updates on the file manager program you had going?

Hi, B+,
nothing like that...
recently busy, in this idiotic lockdown times, with my granddaughter mechatronics-college education...
writing programs for statics, beam equilibrium, body/shape/line centroids, momenta of inertia (all complicated calculations) etc, physics and math, and searching and finding some new "bugs" in this, otherwise fantastic SmallBASIC.
Of course those programs have to run on android-phone, where this BASIC is non-plus-ultra, and so being a great help for the kid.
Fortunately all this "bugs" have their workarounds so it is nothing serious.

Hope you are well, I see you publish your masterpieces regularly in this Forum.
Take care,

I've created another open test version of Android SmallBASIC. Here's the list of changes:
- Fixed 'Socket Client doesn't receive byte with value 13' #112
- Fixed RGB handling with IMAGEs
- Fixed TSAVE of arrays includes extra null character. #119
- Fixed array access regression
- Implemented image.draw(), fix image.save in andoid #115
- Removed "requestLegacyExternalStorage" for AppStore compliance
- Removed path navigation to show unified view of available folders
- Removed samsung keypad warning


The 'requestLegacyExternalStorage' item is from something that google are enforcing.
Basically it means that navigating around the file system is no longer supported.


image.draw() is similar to the existing image.save() function. but instead of adding it to a draw stack, it just draws directly onto the screen.
The arguments are x,y and opacity.


It would be good to get some feedback about the navigation changes.

Hi @chris,
glad to meet you again...
thanks for your wonderful work...

I wonder, if ALL those extensions you added were in the spirit of  [Small]BASIC, but...

Wish you good health, and take care....

On the other side I assumed, the "junior member" 'chrisws', is the real "administrator" of this small section dedicated to SmallBASIC, so I quoted his message.


Hello, 'chrisws' is the author of SmallBASIC. 'chrisws' always tries to make SmallBASIC better and is hardworking. By the way, several experienced users are frequent visitors to the forum. They are bplus, Aurel and lettersquash.

Hi, thanks for the explanation...

Don't take my comments too seriously. I just hate to use smileys... my avatar explains my nature

btw in illo tempore, somwhere else, I had contacts both with chris and b+, and, maybe, somehow, with all my humbleness, I could be counted into this "experienced users" group, though not very active in discussions recently.

cheers! and take care...

Hi jsalai!
...and, in all honesty, I should probably be counted out of both "experienced users" and "frequent visitors to the forum". I've dabbled with a few things, but haven't a clue about all these more advanced issues about stand-alone programs, "wrappers", DLLs and the like.
I'll have you know, I'm coding all the right commands, just not necessarily in the right order.

Hi, LS,
I don't even try them. Being "experienced" means: Never use anything until it gets obsolete!

If I could find a kind soul to recode and recompile win98se to 64-bit OS, I would never leave it.
It was the ONLY thing ever M$ did right!
