APImathDLL - math functions for API calls

This is a small dll which helps you with math functions needed while calling API functions that are not available in Visual Dialogscript 5.x.

It can also be used for other purposes like fast encryption and to increase the security of shareware app/DSU.


Functions:


Code:
You should load the library as follows:
LOADLIB APImathDLL
Make sure that the dll is in the right path                                                                                                                                             

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csLOWORD,INT:,%U)

Returns LOWORD of %U (return value is contained in %A)

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csHIWORD,INT:,%U)

Returns HIWORD of %U

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csHIBYTE,INT:,%U)

Returns HIBYTE of %U

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csLOBYTE,INT:,%U)

Returns LOBYTE of %U

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csAND,INT:,%U,%Z)

Returns AND of %U and %Z

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csOR,INT:,%U,%Z)

Returns OR (Bitwise inclusive OR) of %U and %Z

%A = @LIB(APImathDLL,csXOR,INT:,%U,%Z)

Returns XOR (Bitwise Exclusive OR) of %U and %Z

And before you quit your application unload the dll.

FREELIB APImathDLL


The dll is frreware to use in VDS and is unsuported.

get the dll here :

Enjoy !

If this is not the right place to post this moderators please move it. Smile

CodeScript,

Would it at all be possible to share the source code of this DLL to further
support VDS users? Smile

Thanks. I'd like to learn a little more about making DLLs and so I was just wondering.

This is a handy utility for making this type of math calcs. Could prove to come in very useful Yes

Could you perhaps expand a little on these two further uses? No info about it in the documentation. Perhaps
a couple of examples Wink

For basic encryption you can loop through a key/password and XOR each character of the key/password with each character of the string you want to encrypt.

Although I think this is a good DLL and it will help, I really think these functions should be built into VDS. I also think there should be an easier built in way to define structs and arrays. These things are all needed now that you can access the API.

I agree SnarlingSheep, these should have been built into VDS but for now I think this will do the job. Also for some API finctions containg array in a structure thing seem difficult. I have no success as yet in VDS though it seems easy on VB. May be a dll that passes the parameters in a friendly way helps ?

Moderator's note: CodeScript, please do not use an abbreviation for SnarlingSheep's particular name

I'm not the one who put that there but I think that it's more of a personal
preference than a rule.

Personally I like my nickname "FF" so everybody can continue to call me
that. Smile

In SnarlingSheep's case it's really up to him as to what he wants to be
called.

Embarassed Embarassed Sorry very much I saw others using it (even for SnarlingSheep ) so I too did. I will not do that again.
SnarlingSheep please don't mind.

Who actually did that and why?
I don't remember what you called me CodeScript but I'm sure I read it and didn't catch my eye, so I don't think it was bad..

I used "SS" - may be then it conflicted with someone else's name and he/she complained.
BTW it's nice to avoid shortcuts -- but reflex you see. Sorry If it hurt someone. Embarassed

I notice that even SnarlingSheep himself has been doing that at times, but indeed the
point is avoiding to hurt anyone. I expected it wouldn't have needed any further explanation,
however the abbreviation had a bad meaning in World War II.

Still of course there's no problem with using abbreviations in general.

I really doubt that anyone associated SS with anything but SnarlingSheep around here Tommy.
I could think of alot of bad things that FF could stand for too, no need to stop anyone from using that abbreviation.

Seriously, I'm glad we got things explained here. I think it should be
personal preference, unless people are being offended by it. If you're
being offended by a name just say so. Smile

thanks for the feedback...as for snarlingsheep's abbreviation, i would never have associated it with ww2...but then i live far away from europe ...i can understand how our vds friends in europe would feel seeing that abbreviation...i just wasn't sure as to why the moderator's message had been added...i too don't want to hurt anyone and i was seeking clarification so that i could understand why snarling's abbreviation should be avoided...now i understand Smile

thanks ff and snarlingsheep for explaining your position Smile
