@aha,

Hehe... that one came in earlier at my u-tube feed...

Be sure to check out the software and give the developer some feedback ... that's the only way that things are able to improve (if necessary).

Thanks for posting aha.

edit PS: don't miss the updated MUIPlot.

Interesting programs. Reminds me a little bit of school.

Wasn't alb42 around in Aros-Exec, in the past?

I have no clue whatsoever, so Your guess is as good as mine  :)

What i do know is that neither his usual handle or name is being listed as registered user on this new forum (you can check the memberlist yourself once logged in)

On the old forums, yes. Here on amigalife i haven't seen any sign of life of ALB42 so far.

It is heartwarming to see how you seem to miss ALB... and i can't blame you as he's a great person...  :D

You can always contact him either by using his website alb42.de or by using the freepascal.org (lazarus) forums (he does have an account overthere).

Is code page 437 (classic IBM) available as a font or does the IDE render gfx?

i'm sure it is...

... but i am assuming that you wish to use the box drawing characters in a shell window. If so then that is not a very good idea as a) the shell font is a system wide (user) setting and b) a shell window on amiga/amiga is (by comparison) dead slow. Amiga is originally a graphical OS... the shell is build on top of that.

or does the IDE render gfx?
FP ide does indeed render the graphics into a intuition Window. One of the amicommon include files contains a (open source) vga BIOS font.

FP IDE (on amiga and alike OS) uses a virtual textmode buffer (with dimensions the size of the intuition expressed in a number of horizontal/vertical character count) that gets (re)rendered to the graphical intuition window when required.
