The great Gambas and its windows version

Post by Snake Plissken » Friday 01st June 2018 2:45pm

Dear Gambas Team,

i'm a 40 year old c++ developper and i'm very interested in the great Gambas basic dialect.

I found your great oop basic in the net. And i recognized that there is a windows version out. But sadly the news about the windows version are from 27 Oct 2016 :!:

These are very old news.

My questions are now:
-Are you still working on a windows version?
-Are there plans for further windows versions in the future?

Best regards,
Plissken

Hi, and welcome to the forum :)

Where did you read about a Windows version? The only one I know of is the Cygwin port. My experience with it is that it crashes quite frequently, except if you stick with a certain version of .... can't remember QT or GTK.

For Windows perhaps B4J is an option? It needs Java, but it is pretty cool too. And you can easily re-use code between Windows, Android, iOS and even SOCs.

For Linux - Gambas is #1 BASIC dialect 8-)

Hi Jornmo,

B4J seems to be pretty cool but it is commercial not fee :-(( !
You are right the only Windows Gambas is the cygwin Version. I thought there are plans to port it to Windows.
Gambas is really Numero Uno ;-)!

Best regards,
