Stages 67-69

Post by frank »

In the last two weeks I've added basic :? string handling up to the point where strings can be declared, assigned, passed as parameters and even returned from functions. String functions can also pass their result directly to the result of another function. See screenshot below. At the end of this stage I added the built-in string function left as a first step to handling string expressions, which will be the next stage.

That's right. In the documentation the is..end and do..end blocks are explained. These blocks are used consistently in SharpBASIC syntax. C and other languages have curly brackets {..}, which I dislike for multiple reasons. Pascal actually preceded the curly brackets with begin..end. Much better, but just a bit too verbose for my taste.
