A belated Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2017!
This site and news have been neglected for much of 2016, this year’s resolution will be to try and revive it a bit.
In particular announcements and articles have fallen way behind the code as far as DWScript is concerned. So I will start the year by attempting to rectify that.
DWScript now has support for the BigInteger type, which supports numbers with as many decimals as the memory allows.
This support comes in two flavors, either through a MPIR dll (a GMP fork) or through Rudy Velthui’s BigIntegers unit.
PhantomJS is a “headless Webkit” browser which can be used for various automation tasks, among which is the generation of thumbnails for BeginEnd.net 🙂
This article is a quick illustration of how it can be controlled from a DWScript WebServer.
Associate Arrays (aka dictionary) are now in experimental form in the DWScript repository.
Support for floating point modulus has been added to DWScript, it extends the “mod” operator to accept floats.
Last week www.beginend.net was launched with the goal of aggregating Pascal and Delphi blogs in a mobile-friendly, secure website with a minimalist UI.
Support for ?? (double question mark) as the coalesce operator has been added to DWScript.
The coalesce operator is a binary operator, which looks at its left operand, and if not “falsey”, returns it, otherwise returns its right operand.
A new version 2014.10.15 of the DWS Web Server is available.
This version contains a variety of improvements and fixes, along with a new sample for JS libraries.
The pre-compiled 2014.10.13 version of the DWScript WebServer is now available!
Below is a quick summary of changes in the SVN since the last post.
There is also a mini-sneak peek of things to come!
