In case i really want to do much FP or String stuff, i will avoid PureBasic.

hahahahaha!

Theo, you crack me up!

Do you really think that PureBasic would still be around if it couldn't handle these "basic" things.

I said this before... Give me a string (or floating point) example of something 'impossible' in PureBasic.

Here are examples of what's available (in the rare case you find PureBasic "inadequate")

User Libs available:

-------------------------------------------------------

aNuMet - A Lib for numerical calculations -

Implements 40+ Matrix functions, including Determinant, Inverse, Division, Trasposed.

Solves equation systems, calculate coefficients of polinomial curve, show matrix elements, etc.

Includes equation parser/solver/intergator/differentiation with variables and functions

and other functions.

See the sample code in PB for the list of functions.

Very fast code. Sample code available in PureBasic.

---------------------------------------------------------

GNU MP Lib: Is a portable library written in C for arbitrary precision arithmetic on integers, rational

numbers, and floating-point numbers.

If you need numbers like this:

---------------------------------------------------------

MPFR library - MPFR is based on the ABOVE GMP multiple-precision library.

The MPFR library is a C library for multiple-precision floating-point computations with correct rounding.

MPFR has continuously been supported by the INRIA and the current main authors come from the Caramba

and AriC project-teams at Loria (Nancy, France) and LIP (Lyon, France) respectively; see more on the credit

page.

The main goal of MPFR is to provide a library for multiple-precision floating-point computation which is both

efficient and has a well-defined semantics. It copies the good ideas from the ANSI/IEEE-754 standard for

double-precision floating-point arithmetic (53-bit significant).

Contains 260 commands

---------------------------------------------------------

I can give you many more (strings too!)... to help you with the inadequacies of PureBasic.
