I Recommend Purebasic programming language based on established BASIC rules

Recommended Posts


I have been using PureBasic for about a year now i have really enjoyed it!

Here is a little description about it:

PureBasic is a programming language based on established BASIC rules. The key features of PureBasic are portability (Windows, AmigaOS and Linux are currently fully supported), the production of very fast and highly optimized executables and, of course, the very simple BASIC syntax. PureBasic has been created for the beginner and expert alike. We have put a lot of effort into its realization to produce a fast, reliable and system friendly language.
In spite of its beginner-friendly syntax, the possibilities are endless with PureBasic's advanced features such as pointers, structures, procedures, dynamically linked lists and much more. Experienced coders will have no problem gaining access to any of the legal OS structures or API objects and PureBasic even allows inline ASM.

The main features of PureBasic

- Huge set of internal commands (800+) to quickly and easily build any application or game
- All BASIC keywords are supported
- Very fast compiler which creates highly optimized executables
- No external DLLs, runtime interpreter or anything else required when creating executables
- Procedure support for structured programming with local and global variables
- Access to full OS API for advanced programmers
- Easy but very fast 2D game support trough dedicated libraries (DirectX, SDL, ...)
- Easy and high quality 3D support based on OGRE
- Optimal use of the available hardware by using highly optimized (assembly) commands
- Source code is portable between AmigaOS, Windows, MacOS X and Linux, for games and applications
- Dedicated editor and development environment
- Integrated debugger to easily trace programming bugs.

Has anyone here also is or has used it?

I remember, when I was using Amiga, even though I still have it and it works, I rarely turn it on, I used to have it installed, but I wasn't into programming with such languages to much and wasn't interested doing something with it as its apps wasn't fast and didn't have the right knowledge to so something myself, before that I only played with Blitz Basic on an older Amiga, as I remember it was A500+ and simple C on Amiga 1200. <_< I never even tried it on Linux or Windows. :P
