    Is it possible, were there three columns of data rather than 2, that the third column could somehow be imported and interpreted as blanking information?

    That's what you already have.

    X Y color

    color is either a hex 0xRRGGBB or -1.

    If it's -1 it's blank which is not the same as 0x000000 (black).

    Ah, that's clear now. Thanks!

    I haven't asked this for quite a while.....

    Is there anyone here who owns a current Mac that would kindly compile LaserBoy for me to share with my FB Mac using vector art explorers?

    It uses SDL2 and Boost C++.

    I'm interested in compiling my own unreleased development version which will be available as just the source and the txt example files it reads, plus whatever documentation I have done thus far.

    The current public version of the zip in my signature has everything it needs to work, including the src.

    If that compiles and runs, then the bleeding edge version will too.

    Thanks in advance!

    I managed to work with a few different people on this issue and I can now confirm that LaserBoy compiles and runs very well in MacOS.

    I wrote a how-to and included it in the distribution zip.

    It's really quite easy to do using homebrew.

    So if anyone on here has a Mac and would like to try LaserBoy, have at it!

    Enjoy.

    Regarding getting started with a pre-release version of LiquidMath, I have made it to the the following step of MSYS2 installation on a 64 bit Win10 machine:

    $ pacman -Su
    warning: database file for 'ucrt64' does not exist (use '-Sy' to download)
    :: Starting core system upgrade...
    there is nothing to do
    :: Starting full system upgrade...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not find database)


    Please advise what to do next.

    Copy and paste these commands one at a time into the MSYS terminal.

    The second one is all of those lines.

    Code:
    pacman -Syuu
    
    pacman -S --needed  base-devel \
                        mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain \
                        git subversion mercurial \
                        mingw-w64-x86_64-cmake \
                        mingw-w64-x86_64-boost \
                        mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-SDL2 \
                        mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-SDL
    Let me know what happens.

    If you get through that, then open the Mingw64 shell and cd to the new src directory you copied from the dev zip. If you don't have a directory called build inside of the LaserBoy folder, make one. That's where the Makefile tells the compiler to save the object files before linking.

    Then issue this:

    Code:
    time make -f Makefile.w64
    This will tell you how long it took to compile nearly 94 thousand lines of active code.

    If you want to wipe it all out and do it again fresh do this first:

    Code:
    make -f Makefile.w64 clean

    I think you can just hit return to accept the default values rather than typing them.
