My suggestion was to allow to use unicode string literals with FreeBasic. It won't work with PowerBasic because it only supports ansi source code files.

As far as I know the Source-Code for Freebasic is available for download - not?
Also from what i saw on the WEB-Site the programmers run away from it already.
So if there are problems, why not make an own version?

Currently i am still fine with PB as it hast the best andeasiest Strings of all type.

Which problems? The problem is with PowerBasic.

The same that run away from other sites. Low-level compilers are not for everybody.

Free Basic strings are much faster that PB strings. The problem is that it does not support dynamic unicode strings natively, but my class adds support for them and are faster than the PB ones.

Anyway, the main purpose of using Free Basic by some PB programmers has been because it supports 64 bit. Now that I have mastered it, I don't miss PB at all.

With my framework, there is nothing that you can do with PB that you can't do with FB.

He he, that's almost the same for all those who made the effort to go outside of their comfort zone.
