If I understand correct, you are the commander of this forum.

I'm a project member just like you. I happen to have more experience than most with managing and moving open source projects along. Hence my statement of being a project facilitator. This project/forum is owned and operated by Charles. (check the WHOIS) I help out on the hosting/Linux side so Charles can focus on the compiler.

We are all old enough.

The petty name calling and disrespect for obviously seasoned members is appalling and my efforts are focused to make it stop. I'm tired of having to be a shrink for forum misfits with anger management issues that don't know when to stop.

Charles has put countless hours of effort into O2 maturing the compiler to provide us with a BASIC compiler that isn't based on QB or other outdated concepts of the past. If your interested in helping this open source project along then ask Charles what can you do based on your skill level to help. If your looking for free help and advice to move your personal projects along, don't get upset if O2 business takes precedence.

Aurel can do what he wants!

All is bit unfriendly here. Stay a little bit in the background with your commands.

Yes Peter that is true.
My work on awinh.inc is my own work and contribution to Oxygen Basic as almost
only GUI win32 wrapper for creating standard windows controls .
There is some work from Frank in that area .
Same as Peter great contribution in game and graphics includes.

So when I or anyone else  want to create game i will suggest Peter sw.inc
which is great for that type of programs.
And if someone want on easy way create GUI programs i will suggest awinh.inc.
So i don't see what is wrong with my contribution here. ???
By the way i think that Charles add awinh.inc in Oxygen package .

You must have been off on one of your forum pillages and missed that I have thanked Peter numerous times for his examples showing how to use O2 with his closed source library.

As far as your contributions go I hope for the best that you can stay positive and focus on one direction for more than a few days. Due to you poor English, anger issues, and insistence on using methods that have no current day relevance, I don't give your contributions a lot of thought.

Ok
So from your super-ultra point of view my incudes are crap and
and IUP is something spectacular- infact is just another crap to.
fine...

 :D

o2 is a business? I didn't know that I am employee of this forum.
As I said. very unfriendly at time.  I quit my job!

Management is intolerant and arrogant. I hate these branch of industries.

Peter,

If you don't understand how an open source project works then spend the time looking at other successful projects. (Linux, SQLite, cURL, BaCon, ...)  The other option is to go the commercial route and pay someone to take abuse and listen to your problems. With the commercial offering the concept is to make a profit and if they are large enough satisfy investors/stock holders. The open source movement isn't about the competitive side of business. It's about everyone doing their part for a common goal where everyone benefits from the results.

It's really that simple!

Joe (BigBass) from the BaCon forum has been documenting his efforts on SourceForge. I just revisited SourceForge's current tools since the last major upgrade. Joe's docs look GREAT!. Is this something that might work for O2?

He did a nice job that is for sure.

Until Oxygen is out of alpha and Charles says the internals are locked and ready to go, I don't see the point of documenting at this point.
Since it could mean a lot of refactoring.

On a side note, I have been on a mission collecting keywords from various projects to help visualize a complete language in my mind.
The main categories, sub categories within that. I have yet to nail down a complete list organized the way I want yet.

I thought I would submit that when the time is right and then we all give it a finished outline of what stays and what goes.
And then we could fill in the details.

I am still thinking of keeping all the data in a sql database and have it generate html files styled with a master css sheet.

Looks like a mix of all the alien species putting the people together, does this mean Oxygen will have mixins? I could never wrap my head around how they pull that out!
