F2Bin

I've made an X# function VOBin2F which converts VO's F2Bin() result to a float (see the attachment). As for now I'll try to avoid making a reverse function. Let it be as it is.

F2Bin

Robert, thank you!
Now I see why there is a 15-bit exponent and not a 11-bit one. I'll try to think something out :)
There are algorythms to convert 80-bit float to 64-bit one. Will try to emulate something like 64 -> 80 also.
I still would like to try.

F2Bin

<t>F2Bin function in VO saves float in a somehow wierd format. It is mentioned that value part of the float is saved as REAL8, that should be IEEE754, but it is not. The order of bytes differs. In X# F2Bin complies with IEEE754, but not in VO. So there is a problem if you want to unpack binary value...

New feature

Sure, the feature is nice! And definitely before the XML comments as those are part of function definition.

cavowed.inf and /vo15 option being OFF (treat missing types as usual)

<r>I'd like to switch off /vo15 option (treat missing types as usual) so that it would be an error if there is a local variable without strictly defined type. I found that this option demands clipper functions to have CLIPPER calling convention to be defined explicitly and return-type is obligative,...

How to get raw byte array or Binary{} from a memo-field?

Thanks a lot for this suggestion!
Haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it will work.

How to get raw byte array or Binary{} from a memo-field?

DBFCDX (with FPT support). How to get/put memo-field as a raw value - BYTE[] (if possible without first 8 bytes of a header) ? BlobGet, as far as I see, returns a string, which is grinded with encoding.

regards,

Navigation through the project

<r>Something has to be done with it. Couldn't imagine I would ever write it, but I seem to miss the simple VO-like Repository explorer in VS2019. I just cannot navigate through my projects fast enough, do not have that fast overview of all the functions in a module which I had in VO.<br/> The Visual...

Show X# VO-style window from WinForms project

<r>After spending quite a long time I've found the reason why VO-windows refused to work properly when being shown from a C# WinForms application. The reason is in _INIT1 and _INIT3 procedures of VOGUIClasses.dll which have to be called. And if your main application is written in C#, which doesn't h...
