PerfectPaint & MagicSpray : Comment 3 of 15ANN.lu

I take it that since Perfect paint works on a GFX card, it is fully AmigaOS friendly in that it should run on OS4 when it arrives?
And that a PPC version is being done as we speek since it would be a shame to loose such a wonderful app.

a) Working a GFX-card doesn't mean 100% "clean". I'm not saying it ain't, we just don't know.

b) AFAIR, it is written in BlitzBasic, not the perfect starting-point for an OS4-port.

As it works fine on Amithlon, it should work fine under OS 4. That being so, you are not going to "lose" it. If it works, it works.

works okay so far. no nasty issues have raised their heads. Of course, if
it did go PPC native then some operations would be a lot faster!! :-)

BB2 will never go ppc native .. it's development has ceased AGES ago .. besides, why not use a real gfx app like FX-Paint, where a PPC-native version already exists?

No, PerfectPaint is a free, stand-alone paint program, somewhere between Personal Paint and TVPaint.
I'm astounded to hear that it is made in Blitz. While I'm aware that Blitz isn't your father's BASIC, I had no idea that it coul realistically be delopyed to make such a modern-looking, splendid program as PerfectPaint.

About twice as fast, assuming the JIT emulator is working properly.

So long as a language is compiled and has full access to the Amiga libraries, the choice of language should have very little effect on the final program. It could affect how long it takes to code and debug the program.

Well Blitz Basic where one of my ferrite basic programs,
after I stop using system unfriendly AMOS,
BlitzBasic has tow mode one BlitzMode (hardware hacking mode for speed),
and AmigaMode (System friendly for every thing else),
BlitzBasic has support for tow types of gadgetes, and you can
write inn assembler 68000 intermixed with the source code,
the compiler do NOT optimize the code the asm code
and there are no support for 68020 etc. instructions.
the debugger uses emmu and crashes on Amiga500
when trying debug asm code written with inn the source code,
(you can disable the debugger) not all commands are system friendly
and you must pick the commands with care, cpu registers are used to
pass agreements between functions and you can define data structures with
"type define" or some thing similar don't remember.

Blitz Basic looks like basic butt it has more in common with Pascal and C++,
program code is NOT inteprented etc.

TED the text editor is the worst type of pace of shit ever used, even less system friendly then the
AMOS EDITOR, just try run TED on UAE i'm not kidding, and it's a trick to get it working on
Amiga 500,

BlitzBasic programs shooed be easier to port the AMOS programs to C++.

If you go to http://www.blitz-2000.co.uk you will find that BB2 is still in development as AmiBlitz

And if you look at the introduction page, it also says PPC is possible:
http://blitz-2000.david-mcminn.co.uk/introduction/
"If you use the newly released AmiBlitz2, you can have optimised code, support for all 68k processors (including FPU) and also use PPC assembly language in your programs."
