ScriptBasic 64 Bit Linux

(1/7) > >>

I recently completed a project that needed to run on a 64 bit version of Ubuntu. Armando came to the rescue and was able to get scriba, the webserver, mysql and curl running under 64 bit. I tested it with the application I wrote that updates a MySQL database by accessing a webservice for new or changed activity within a specific time frame. Getting SB to run under 64 bit is nothing more than a few changes to the make file compiler options.

I created a Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit instance on Amazon EC2 and ran the Bible word count script on both my local laptop (2.8 ghz) and the Amazon instance (processor info unknown).

Amazon EC2 - Ubuntu 64

real   0m39.131s
user   0m29.620s
sys   0m9.250s

HP laptop - Ubuntu 32

real   1m2.556s
user   0m27.514s
sys   0m23.629s

Attached is the beginning of a complete Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit version of ScriptBasic. I will post the source when I can use setup again to build everything. The mysql, curl and libxml2 extension module shared objects have to be built by hand at the moment. The following files are included.

/etc/scriba/basic.conf.txt  ' configuration file to edit

/usr/share/scriba/include/cgi.bas  ' CGI helper functions interface module
/usr/share/scriba/include/curl.bas  ' cURL interface module

/usr/bin/sbhttpd  ' Multi-threaded web server with in-memory session support
/usr/bin/scriba  ' command line & CGI script interpreter

The basic.conf.txt file is a minimal configuration to make including/importing extension modules easier. Use the scriba -k basic.conf.txt to generate the binary format ScriptBasic reads.

The above should allow you to write network, database, cron and text processing utilities. The web server is included if you want to do your server side scripting in Basic. (or use scriba as your CGI scripting language if session support and multi-threading isn't required)

ScriptBasic Documentation (user & developer guide and extension module documentation)

I would like to thank Armando Rivera for his help and mentoring to get this platform release built.

This is an example of using the mysql extension module.


--- Code: ---' MySQL Test Program

INCLUDE mysql.bas

dbh = mysql::RealConnect("localhost","USER","PSWD","sbdb")

mysql::query(dbh,"SELECT * FROM test")

WHILE mysql::FetchHash(dbh,column)

PRINT column{"ID"},"\n"
PRINT column{"NAME"},"\n"


PRINT "The database handle is: ",dbh,"\n"
PRINT "Affected rows by SELECT: ",mysql::AffectedRows(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Character set name is: ",mysql::CharacterSetName(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Last error is: ",mysql::ErrorMessage(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Client info is: ",mysql::GetClientInfo(),"\n"
PRINT "Host info is: ",mysql::GetHostInfo(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Proto info is: ",mysql::GetProtoInfo(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Server info is: ",mysql::GetServerInfo(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "PING result: ",mysql::Ping(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Thread ID: ",mysql::ThreadId(dbh),"\n"
PRINT "Status is: ",mysql::Stat(dbh),"\n"



--- End code ---

This cURL extension module example downloads the ScriptBasic logo from it's project site.

ch = curl::init()
