New release of PortablE aimed at beginnersPosted by ChrisH at 20110207 17:33
I am releasing a "full preview" of the next version of the PortablE programming language. It is now aimed at beginners & those new to the E language.

Previous releases of PortablE were aimed at existing AmigaE users, and those familiar with AmigaOS programming. But after more than a year of development, PortablE is much easier for beginners to pick-up & play with:

I have now released an UPDATED preview of PortablE. You can download it from PortablE's homepage. The changes include:

1. Fixed MakeFractalBitmap() to handle red colours above $7F (such as RGB_RED & RGB_ORANGE).

2. Fixed the graphics module to not crash on MorphOS when you change screens.

3. Updated the installer for AmigaOS4, so that it (offers to) install the necessary GCC includes.

4. Minor changes to the documentation.

I have now released an UPDATED preview of PortablE. You can download it from PortablE's homepage.

The only change is that PEGCC should no-longer fail with the error message "Failed to strip executable" on AmigaOS4 when you have the source code folder open in Filer, DOpus4, etc. (If a similar problem exists on other OSes, then this will fix it too.)
