Just a thought regarding programming in Gambas 2
I've been fiddling around with Gambas2 lately and it strikes me that if the runtime were included in Puppy, any apps developed in it (as small as Genie/Vala) would be a boon. The runtime package is roughly 150k so it would not overburden Puppy.
Just a thought...I'm sure all the refugee VB programmers would be thrilled. _________________ Dpup Home

back in the days when we had no pets, pups or SFS
Barry very kindly compiled Gambas for me to look at.
I was able to come up with nothing. (fish have better
programming skills than me)
MU brought his own language WXbasic - which eventually evolved into
PuppyBasic and wrote many programs which ended up in Muppy.
Freebasic was for a long while part of the devx - it is qbasic compatible
Did we have loads of programs to show for the inclusion? (not one that I am aware of)
I have no doubt that programs will be written in Genie and Vala because MU and
Barry are interested and already doing so.
I may well look at Gambas again - if I write anything - the run time can be added.
If several people start writing in Gambas it begins to develop momentum . . . _________________ Raspup for Raspberry Pi In Alpha Puppi testing NOW NEW Slackware Current ScPup 32 and 64bit Last edited by Lobster on Thu 26 Nov 2009, 14:41; edited 1 time in total
