Or RHIDE: http://www.rhide.com/download/rhide15b.zip

It has syntax-highlight for BASIC too, but IDE uses TurboPascal style -- what i used to like more than QB's split windows. You can even debug the apps, but FB's debug support for GDB is incomplete at the moment.

While I agree with the fact that an IDE is a very difficult piece of software to write, I definately think  it is a bad decision to put that second.  A project manager, advanced editing features and other stuff that you have said FIDO is going to have is all that is keeping me from doing bigger things with FB.  I think a GUI editor is not and should not be priority over an IDE that could become the standard.

I'd like to code FIDO in FB, but right now that's not practical. VB has quickly shown its limitations while coding it, which was another major problem...limitations we don't have in FB. And don't anyone get started on the "then you should do it in C++" BS, coz that would take 10x as long. FBXL would be the perfect environment to code FIDO in. However, if there's enough demand for it, I'll reopen the VB version project and keep at it, although I can't make any promises on results. :-?

No you should focus on FBXL FIDO would be nice but FBXL should come first the faster we have this tool the better it will be for the community because we can start hijacking VB programmers and bringing them into the fold.

I've downloaded SETEdit ( http://setedit.sourceforge.net/ ). It's the editor which is included on Rhide, only that more updated. I'm using it right now at work in a Linux box to do my coding, but as soon as I get home I'll install the WIndows and MSDOS versions to test them.

If I manage to configure it to compile with freeBASIC for DOS, complete with projects support, I'll write a short tut on how to do it.

I'm very used to Rhide. In fact it is my favourite IDE, that's why I'm loving SETEdit... it's pretty fast and has ... EVERYTHING Shocked

Fancy using SVGA textmodes in MSDOS? No more 80x25! Wink
