Re: wishlist for NXC

Although I stand with Matt, let's just wait for John to answer and not pollute this thread when neither sides are willing to give ground. ;)

Re: Number indexing of structs

For example, a simple implementation (bad coding style, and probably buggy, but I don't care) in C++ would be: struct C { int a, b, c; size_t s = {0, sizeof(a), sizeof(b), sizeof(c)}; void* index(int i) { void* r = this; while(i--) r += s[i]; return r; } }; Not sure about more complex and flexible i...

And Ellipses. Which is weird, since I can't do ellipses with a diameter of an even number.

Re: RectOut

Well, not unless you frequently put in negative values for the width and height. ;)

Re: Preemptive scheduling?

The FW processes 20 opcodes by default before switching to the next task, and earlier if a Wait() or Yield() is called. (The opcodes can vary based on the assigned task priority.) John Hansen has written some posts about it somewhere on this forum and other places . Maybe try and sea...

Re: RIC file format

I don't know much about RICs either, but this post explains some. RIC Revealed NXT graphic files are often used to spice up a robotics program. The Alpha Rex robot uses two heart pictures to display something like a beating heart on the LCD while the robot moves about. Ross Crawford’s mini chess p...

Re: string size limit

Then is there a way to release variable space for variables I am done with? The NBC code uses temporary variables, but IIRC, it doesn't clean them up after use. The only way to guarantee no extra memory is being used is to write the critical parts of your code in NBC. I suppose we could feature req...

Re: string size limit

Using the first post method might actually be slower than simply writing data to a preallocated file one number at a time. ( write 41, write 42, write 43, etc ) This is because each time you add text to Message , it must be reallocated. That's a hundred unnecessary allocations of large amounts of da...
