FreeBASIC Library Submissions
Posted by Jofers on Saturday July 30th, 2005 @ 21:15:28
      There are hundreds of libraries for Windows packaged in "DLL"s, or "Dynamic Link Libraries". These libraries may be used with FreeBASIC, but they still require a header (a file containing declarations, structures, macros, and constants used in the library). Also, a GCC-compatible static link library should accompany it, unless you wish to use the Windows API to dynamically load it (a somewhat tedious task).

FreeBASIC includes headers and static files for a number of popular libraries, such as SDL and GTK. However, we here at QB45 would like to provide other libraries and headers not included with FreeBASIC. For instance, in the most recent update, we have self-submitted InpOut32, a popular library to access ports under Windows NT/2K/XP.

If there are any libraries or library headers you wish to be hosted here on QB45, which was not included with FreeBASIC, please pipe up in the comments here and specify.

It would be ├╝ber-sweet if you got AALib working. :) I could never get it to build correctly on Windoze or DoS, but maybe I'm just in too much of a hurry...

Oh, and I can port the headers, if you'd like.
int main(){while(1)fork();}

I'll certainly take a crack at it. If you had the headers already ported that'd be great (I'm still having trouble with swig interfaces, and all their wierdness).

of course it'd be even cooler if you could port (basically aalib + colours)

*cough* already ported *cough* ;)
