    Why to install a new version, I need to remove the old?

  2. Dantv says:

    Windows 7 is not listed as a supported operating on the smallbasic site? Is this correct or an oversight?

  3. vijayeg says:

    Just an oversight, Dantv.  We’ll fix that.

    Wow, in 30 min I make nice things using the tutorial. More easy to make than VB.net Express. 🙂

    And Thanks to translation to pt_BR, and I loved the vb.express export and Silverlight. 🙂

    Questions:

    1) Any chance to support animated gifs?

    2) When I draw lines, squares etc, They are all antialias, Its is strange of my part, but are possibility to draw simple lines without AA?

    Having played with SB for a few days I created a half finished project, then dont you know i closed the code window and didnt save it first 🙁 .

    Any chance SB saves a back-up copy somewhere ? .

    If not maybe a new feature "Auto Save" could be added ? .

    Maybe using a "date/time" name format and confuation options like "number of save files to allow" & "time interval to save" ? .

    Sure would have saved me some re-coding a large part of my work

    I like how when you goto a published sb program I dont have to download the progam to use it.

  8. I am an old qb-4.5 programmer who would like to use the graphing capabilities of small-basic.  Would you have some code that would allow me to plot 3 or 4 curves, with their own ordinate scaling, on one graph?  If so, what extra "boiler plate" would I need (including the names of input files) to succesfully produce a plot.
