Re: How to define the size of an array during runtime?

For many years the Gardens Point implementation of Component Pascal has had a language extension for extensible array types. These are called vectors : Values of these vector types are dynamically allocated, and automatically extend their capacity when an append operation is performed on an array th...

Re: Team development

There was an extensive discussion on the use of Git for Oberon-based systems back in 2020 on the ETH Oberon Mailing list. It was titled [Oberon] all in one git tree and it starts here: https://lists.inf.ethz.ch/pipermail/oberon/2020/015285.html I only ever consider using a system like Git when worki...

Re: Dedicated Applications (was: 64 bit?)

While I'm here, I have another question. For future reference: If it's a different subject create a new topic. If I want to use BB for a dedicated application or distribute it, I would remove the subsystems and modules I don't need, but what is the absolute minimum necessary for a functioning BB? Y...

Re: Computing Fundamentals -- Errors in module

I tried compiling your unmodified Pbox12B module using v1.6 of BlackBox and the version of PBoxFormatters included with the PBox modules uploaded by Stan Warford to Helmut Zinn's Component Pascal Resources site:

http://www.zinnamturm.eu/downloadsOS.htm#Pbox

and it compiled without a problem.

Re: Sets with more than 32 elements?

There's an example of how to define a class for sets of arbitrary integers in Section 4.3 of the book Object-Oriented Programming in Oberon-2 by Hanspeter Mössenböck. The Component Pascal solution would be very similar. You can download a copy of the book from: http://ssw.jku.at/Research/Books/Obero...

Re: Oberon & writing files

You are correct. The Files module is used for reading / writing binary data from / to a file. Oberon systems often have a Texts module for writing text to a file. These usually have a WriteLn procedure for writing the newline character(s) relevant for the system it is running on. The Oakwood Out mod...

Re: Study of the BlackBox Component Builder

As well as Warford's book I recommend you read: Object-Oriented Programming in Oberon-2 Hanspeter Mössenböck https://ssw.jku.at/Research/Books/Oberon2.pdf In this book, O-O terminology like Classes, Objects, Messages, Methods etc. are correlated with the conventional programming terms. The author no...

Re: Stack Commit Size, Stack Reserve Size

A bit hard to give an example module. To have an idea about what our models look like have a quick look at this video: https://www.mobatec.nl/web/videos/Mobatec_Modeller.webm Hmm, impressive application. Strange, it looks like only mobatec saw the potential 23 years ago of BlackBox Component Pascal...
