Thanks a lot to Paul Squires for his fantastic Firefly RAD Tool .
And also for his permission to share my personal contributions ...
Here is what I have done to expand the possibilities to the Firefly FreeBasic +
Compile to Exe or Dll;
Compile with or without console;
more menus and options...
Several modifications directly on the firefly.exe file using reshacker and hex editor
to modify and add menus items
to make 1correction ($crlf from PowerBasic syntax) in the messagebox tool
to modify the included template code to allow dll creation and ztrace possibility ...
I renamed the file : FireFlyMP.exe (MP > More Possibilities)
I've also created 5 extra files :
to hook the firefly exe menu : FB_FF3MP.Dll
to realize all the extended compilation options : FF3_CompFBMP.EXE
to give a "trace window" to help debugging : zTraceFB.dll
a Chm+ file for the extra features : FireFly+.chm
and Finally a launcher to organize everything : FireFly3_FB.exe
All works fine, and I always use it for my own tools, plus the Editor companion you can use with : CSED_FB
Here the link for CSED_FB:
