Hi profis!
After 20 years back to Basic and 10 years break of programming at all (except HTML, Javascript etc): I'm wondering how I can import a lot of data into big arrays in AppGameKit. The old (and still actual, see FreeBasic) Operator 'data' to read a long list of data (which I can scrap from some of my old Basic projects) did not exist, isn't it?
When I export the integer data with FreeBasic, it seems there is a problem to read them with AppGameKit (4 vs 8 bit long). Currently trying to do it as string files.
Additionally, I can't find any build in solution to extract and use them from XML data files. Is there any?
Thanks to bring me back on the right path!

i'm glad fubarkpk got you going. if it works for you out of the box, great.

but, you might consider parsing/converting your data to native .JSON handling (see the bottom of the page here).

depends on what you're doing with the data but i know the .json stuff is lightning fast on mobile (tons faster than reading line by line, etc)
