QB64 world
« on: February 15, 2018, 03:50:56 pm »
I don't know if we ever talked about QB64 here?

For me it is like SmallBASIC's big brother but Compiled and with typed variables (many!) and many new features that are incompatible with old QBasic or QB45 or ... these keywords are all marked with a beginning underline _newKeyword  so old QB usually mostly works.

There is the official QB64.net
http://www.qb64.net/forum/
currently (2018-02-15) down

There is a newer OB64.org that takes over when .net is down (down allot) and as of today will stay up and co-exist with the official .net site.
http://qb64.org (important downloads and sources)
http://qb64.org/forum/

Walter Whitman's site: The Joyful Programmer (where I hang out too much and might find a couple golden oldies from BP.org)
http://qb64.thejoyfulprogrammer.com/?rndtime=1514578291164454855

There are many enthusiast sites, I will share one, Steve McNeil's because he has the Basic spirit of being teacher to beginners:
http://qb64.freeforums.net
(though ProBoards is NOT my favorite forum host environment) Steve has this forum as backup to his code but it is regular forum where the code could be discussed in advertised space.

So JJ, you don't have to just hang out at FB  8)
And Galileo, there are guys at .net that speak your language, I think.

Oh very important! Don't forget about the Wiki:
http://www.qb64.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
(but today is experiencing technical difficulties because QB64.net is down and Wiki is tied in with it. We gotta fix that because using help from IDE is as primitive as using the IDE's file LOAD Dialog.)

New wiki for QB64 since .net is down:
https://www.qb64.org/wiki/Main_Page

I am opening a discussion at org about BOTifying your code.

I don't know dukey aBOuT  it but am fascinated by subject of accessing and interacting with Internet stuff through code.

IRC #QB64 have bots going in chatroom, I think they might be improved, more conversational, more sensational...

If anyone has problems signing up or logging in at QB64.org send me PM and I will pass along message.

I am wondering if there is a snag with gate keeper.

Speaking of dead or alive, QB64.net is dead, the plug has been pulled.

QB64.org, the QB64 Team, has picked up the ball, including on-line Wiki, Beta Testing, Bug removal, Linux usage and GUI version called InForm. Forum is pretty active with IRC chat as well with some classic QB veterans.

Hey Mark, don't forget about Mac and Chrome OS: https://www.qb64.org

The QB Network 54 link might be dead since it's been down for months.
