Description Michael Meeks 2014-09-19 13:50:55 UTC
Our internal StarBasic / VBA code has the ability to call native functions. Checkout:


Private Declare Function QueryPerformanceCounter Lib "kernel32" (lpPerformanceCount As LARGE_INTEGER) As Long

eg. The calling functionality (for windows only) is in:


It would be wonderful to have systematic tests here; create a new / test shared library / DLL on windows that exports a number of the native types, and then invoke those methods for each type from basic - and check the results =)

Thanks !

Re-evaluating the EasyHack in 2022

This issue is still relevant. I don't even see the proposed tests get merged into the code.
