Open-source, free, multi-platform BASIC compiler, with syntax similar MS-QuickBASIC (including the GFX statements), that adds new features such as pointers, unsigned data types, inline assembly, a pre-processor and many others.
I decided to try the DOS version first since I've written many programs in GW-Basic. Even for DOS the down-load is huge - close to 20 meg. Then I tried to compile their simple "Hello.BAS" program: FBC /examples/hello.bas. The program response was: Load error: NO DPMI - Get csdpmi*b.zip. No thanks. I'm insufficiently motivated at this point to try the windows version. Perhaps other reviewers will change my mind.
The instalation is a pain in the but. I spent so much time trying to install it. Just didn't work at all. Tried again and again for now its a bad review somebody help me and it might be a better review.
