Quote from: Mike Stefanik on October 09, 2013, 07:42:56 AMI was thinking about PowerBasic earlier today, and the issue really isn't the core language itself. It has pretty much everything that's needed aside from 64-bit support. What the stock product lacks is a comprehensive set of headers for current versions of Windows, and it has an IDE that's straight out of 1993. There's a lot of work they could do "around the edges" to make it a better product over the short term and not even have to worry about touching the compiler itself for the time being.That said, I was thinking that the thing for PowerBasic to do would be to license José's headers and make them standard, and license Paul's Firefly as the default IDE for the language. If they could reach some kind of agreement there, I think it would be a way to bring new developers, make an easier transition for the VB6 folks who are steering clear of .NET and bring in those upgrade dollars.
