Source Code From The Book
PureBasic - A Beginners Guide Source Code.zip (4Mb)

A couple of days ago I assigned my daughter her first reading lesson in this book starting at the end of page 22...

"Everyone has his/her own style with how to do things, but some styles
are based more on being different than being clear. If you ever have
the notion to allow other developers to use/modify your code and/or
work on a team with you, I would highly recommend that you adopt a
style that is accessible.

Commenting code is the most important, yet most overlooked, aspect of
development. I can think of nothing worse than seeing pages and pages
of code without a single comment as to what the code does. This makes
for a seriously difficult time in maintaining or upgrading and should be
avoided at all costs. I’ve fallen for this trap and have found myself
confused at my own code after not seeing it for months.

To make matters worse, commenting is EASY. All you have to do is
write a quick line that describes what a section of code is for."


... finishing at the end of page 41.

She is a sharp cookie, maintains a 101 average in the 6th grade, and needs the challenge.

At the link above is the book author's page and it seems to link you to what are looking for, although it is now listed as 5MB.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/ac345 ... source.zip
If you go to the first link you would be the first to actually download it from there!
So there may actually be a problem with the download, I don't know.
I downloaded it from awhile back.

Good luck.

Just in case anyone is looking for the source for Kale's book, the mediafire links (and the quote) above are not for this book, but rather for Programming 2D Scrolling Games by John Logsdon found here:

dito to blueb :wink:

Hi, I just had the idea it might be interesting to some to also get the 'updated' examples from Kale's book.

With the translation to german some years ago, these codes had been checked and updated to PB 4.51.
You can find the link on BI's thread: Einsteiger Buch: PureBasic ...

in case this direct link changes somehow: PureBasicBuchSource.zip

greets ~ Vera

Maybe I'm missing something or not looking at the right place but I was told that there's an updated version (4.51) of the book. Every download I've tried mentions "updated to v4" (2006).

Can you point me to the right download link? Thx.

NB: Although I can speak and read a (tiny) bit of German, I want an English version.
