an interpreter isn't really need though a good Debuger and a  good ide all that need and it looks pretty much the same to the user write program compile if there a problem compiler spits out error then you go fix it.  

all the interputer was good for was steping though code and you can do somthing simler with a debuger.  

anyways if somone wanted a interputer some could writte one for it the compiler does have a intermedia lang right so you could interputed that but i have no clue how you would handle DLL/LIB calls though.

I don't know about Von's IDE...I'm kind of shaking in my seat for Neks...from the screens he's shown me and what I hear, it's going to be drooltastic.

Yeah, but what's in it for Microsoft?


Well, here's what I'm thinking....First off, that source code for QBasic 1.1 which was "leaked out" is strategy for the other DOSes out there to be tempted to use it, incorporate it into their OS projects and then poof, along comes M$ and sticks a stick in the wheel.

2. In a way they could definitaly want to see theyr code out there for the sake of mere recognition if not anything else.  But Point number 1 here might give them a 2nd reason to do so ;-).

I think that for the same 2 reasons, any MS compiler should be released even in public domain (especially with the now bigger influence of OpenSource software, would give then incentive to let it go)

hen they say it can't be done, THAT's when they call me ;-).

Hey, come on guys. I don't know about you, but newbie-friendliness is how I became a part of the QB community.

The QB community was something wonderful and unique in many ways. I'd like to see hundreds of amateur FreeBASIC sites hosting tons of programs and tutorials, with 2 to 5 major FreeBASIC sites (both the quality-over-quantity and quantity-over-quality kinds), with active forums, eZines, competitions, etc. A new incomplete yet promising RPG every few months. Ah the good old days!

And while some people may find them annoying, I for one enjoy answering newbie's questions every now and then.

I think there's something to be said for "hold-your-hand coding" if it helps nurture a community, as long as there aren't any real compromises to speed/power/flexibility. The more VonGidric's IDE matures, and the sooner adosorken's GUI Compiler is released and some documentation/tutorials are finished, the better.


Oh no!  I joined because people flamed me on every post i made, I was scoffed at and constantly accused of spamming up the forums!

i'll also sign. i think it's a good idea to give the public access to the old languages, i also support it of being free, also maybe suggest a way of making it work on all platforms ie(under xp)

An idea I had a long time ago, what was no good.  It's 10 months now, and not even 500 people...the response I got when I decided to do this was overwhelming...and with a few thousand people who use the language and interpreter on solely this forum, I thought the chances were good.  Once I hit thousand, I was going to submit it.

Didn't work.

This was a nice idea 10 months ago. Taking 10 months for 368 people to sign really doesn't mean much.
