Re: GOTO statement considered harmful
Hi Richardtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In my case, although I keep my head below the parapet most of the time, I still write new programs in BB4W for Windows-friendly apps for radio amateurs, like this one:
Yes, it is more fiddly to get the format and positioning of the boxes exactly right, but what I like is the very compact runtime code that BB4W produces. (This "requirement" goes back to my very early days of coding, in the 1960s. I was writing machine code for process control systems, where every byte of expensive memory really counted. I graduated after a few years to assembler coding, but always thought it was quite inefficient!) I did start learning Visual Basic at one time, but found it very much an overkill.
Now that I've written several apps like Audio590 in BB4W, it's like falling off a log when writing a new one.
At the age of 76 I'm no chicken, but I see myself using BB4W for a long time to come!
