Title: keyword : ANY
Post by: Nexinarus on May 24, 2005, 09:50:30 AM
I'd like to point out that the wiki information on the keyword 'any' (at http://www.freebasic.net/wiki/wikka.php?wakka=KeyPgAny) is incorrect (and also written by me a while ago). I had (and still have) little idea what it actually does. Someone who knows anything please re-write its page, and/or tell me what it does.

Sorry for providing false information! I cant figure out exactly what 'as any ptr' really does. Anyone?

Bye the way, I really like the wiki idea! Seems to be going great.

You're correct, there is no any type.  If I remember straight, Zire had suggested one and then argued it for quite some time, to no avail.

I think you can safely delete the page.

What Zire was arguing for was little different I thought. To my understanding, Any is still a keyword and is used in calling typeless pointers (please correct me if I'm wrong). Checkout this article by Von
