You may think "Ho god, another set of libraries for my poor little blitz"...
But what a set.. ;-)
This new set of libraries has been designed to definitively erradicate old,
big and slow other libraries (pretentious isn't it ?).
Well, the fact is that since I made them I nearly never use the old
especially WindowsLib, ScreensLib, MemAccLib, PrintLib... and nearly
every others... ;-)
What's cool ?
All libs are really small. You can expect about 3 Ko for a program witch
open fancy screen and some windows.
Libraries are really oriented... for exemple Screen and Window related
function are in the same library...
Well I am very proud of most of the functions as they are smaller and
really more powerful than the old (and some of the new) ones.
For exemple the function StrRight (or StrLeft) replaces Right$, RSet$
and UnRight$ in a very easy and compact way... adding, more over, some
features as Pading with a special char...
Is you have ever try ARexx (like me ;-) you have been certainely
disapointed by Blitz functions (like me ;-), and particuliarly
string related functions, convertion functions... This set is for you...
Libraries and functions are totaly independent... you can use them as
C/C++ functions... You will also probably notice some similitudes
with AmigaE (LotanIntuition, LotanSystem...) and ARexx (LotanConvert,
That's why libraries are sooooooo small, if a function already
exists in AmigaOS, I don't rethink the wheel... For example you won't
in LotanIntution as the AmigaOS function already exists and is very
simple to use...
You will quickly notice that I don't speak about objects... The fact is
that I don't use them... because yeuuuuuurk... ;-) It's the first reason
This is probably a new universe to you if you are a beginner or if you
have never try anything different... But trust me you will love pointers.
In this brand new world forget Addr Screen(0)... now you must use logical
names : *MyScreen... see examples... you will quicly understand.
Really sure... if you don't do stupid things like closing a screen with
windows on it, draw on file... or cooking your cat with mustard.
All functions are totaly OS friendly (100% Garanty HardWare hiting free
vitamins and iron).
And as usual all resources used are freed : windows, screens and files
are closed, allocated memory freed... the haven for you ;-)
