 I went ahead and added an Oxigen basic compiler configuration tab. It seems to work fine.

PluriBASIC is now generating the basic if/then for/next macros and other stuff. According to the online reference, PluriBASIC seems to be generating code that can already be compiled (as soon as i find information on how to invoke the compiler DLL).



STDOUT "Hello world"


Other stuff like variable declarations should also be easy to generate. Two nights was an over estimate. I added the basics in 3 hours. Now off to sleep. :)

Looking good.

It is OxygenBasic, not Oxigen, Brian.

Hello Brian

to invoke the O2 compiler use shellexecute the  gxo2.exe  in the format below

  C:\OxygenBasicProgress >  gxo2.exe     < filename.o2bas >

or run the batch file as below  ( please change the file name from FindEd.o2bas to your own filename )

::@echo off

::Set the Oxygenbasic compiler path
set o2dir=C:\OxygenBasicProgress

%o2dir%\gxo2.exe FindEd.o2bas

echo done

Note that the C:\OxygenBasicProgress  is the folder containing the downloaded
and unzipped contents from

and the given file name is FindEd.o2bas  in this example
use your own filename

Thanks mike, i will fix it. :)

In spanish and other languages its "Oxige...", thats why it is easy to mix words. :)

Thanks chris, i will try it later today. :)

Brian Alvarez

Ok i will try it now. Should be easy to do if everything is in place.

Charles, is there a way to omit the Messageboxes with syntax errors and instead get the message via STDIN so i can parse the line with the error and highlight it? the -m switch doesnt seem to work for that...

I would lke to be able to either do that, or make a direct call to the DLL that doesnt pop up messageboxes. Are the DLL declarations available?

  In the tools subdirectory is exo2.bas that needs to be compiled with FreeBasic for console output.
It is attached here.
exo2 -c <filename>

Thanks James, i made a version of the Exodus file that doesnt display popup messageboxes. It now works fine and
compiles OxygenBasic applications fine too. Next step is expanding the variety of statements supported by the engine.

Yaay! :)

Hi Brian,

You can now make your own fully customised compiler, using Oxygen.dll directly. My favourite is co2, as it is written in O2. Use o2_mode 9 for oleString i/o, like PB.

Brian Alvarez

Charles Pegge

These are the i/o modes specified in oxygen.bas: ( bits 1,2 and 8 )

'specify string mode for various o2 API functions
'0 ascii char*
'1 ascii char*
'2 unicode wchar*
'8 ole bstring ascii
'9 ole bstring ascii
'10 ole bstring unicode
sub o2_mode alias "o2_mode" (byval m as sys) export
End Sub

Hello Brian
long time no hear

any progress status on your project ?

Brian Alvarez

Hello Chris.

The project is pretty advanced. In fact i already use it for my own purposes. Unfortunately the market is not very profittable and i need to focus in other things.

I wish to return to daily progress on it like before but since it is taking too long to generate profit i cant afford it. Thats why i wanted Adam to purchase the project, I believe he is more able to work on it and at the same time pay the bills.

Brian. :)
