Screenblanker

Here is a simple screenblanker program. It creates a moving pattern of symmetrical lines on the screen. It is set to save a screen image and end after 10000 cycles. If you comment out those lines, it will run forever. 8A2D527E-E8F8-4F42-96ED-0300C8BB43C8.jpeg t = 0 inc = 0.5 NUM_LINES = 40 GRAPHICS ...

Re: Copy files between BASIC v6 and other apps

I wondered why you had to go to dropbox.com to download a folder. It seemed it would be faster exporting the folder directly from the Dropbox app. I found the answer today in a 2 1/2 year old post on a Dropbox help page. It seems Dropbox iOS wasn't provided a function to export folders. The answer f...

Re: Copy files between BASIC v6 and other apps

Once I move a folder from Smart Basic 5.8 to Dropbox, when I try to Export the folder from Dropbox to Downloads, the Export button is ghosted! This happens on both my iPhone 11 Pro Max and my iPad Pro 11. I haven't been able to figure out a workaround. Next I decided I would go into the folder, sele...

Re: Name of this Forum section

OK, I will try again. Maybe I was unclear. I suggest that the Smart Basic Forum's Other Topics section be used for discussion of other topics related to Smart Basic. I suggest that a new Future Basic Forum should be established with its own Other Topics section. I base my suggestion on the way you o...

Name of this Forum section

This section of the Forum named Smart Basic is now being employed primarily for discussion and information about Future Basic.

A new section should be started for It, as was done for SPL.

Re: IBM mainframe 360/30 vs. iPad 2019

You are running on an iPad Pro, I believe. That accounts for being able to increase the font size. Your speeds are quite a bit faster than mine and Henk's. I'm not sure how to account for the improved accuracy. Is there better math processing on the Pro?

Re: IBM mainframe 360/30 vs. iPad 2019

I ran the program multiple times and checked accuracy each time. It seemed that some of the zero results were larger than 1.E-13. However the way DEBUG PAUSE displays the matrices makes it difficult to be sure. So I made some code modifications to print the results to the screen. I added this line a...
