Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. FutureBasic is a free BASIC compiler for Apple Inc.'s Macintosh. It consists of an integrated development environment, editor, project manager, etc. for both PowerPC and Intel microprocessors. Since 1 January 2008, the package contains a translator, FBtoC, that converts the FutureBasic syntax to C and automatically calls Apple's GNU Compiler Collection. No knowledge of C is required. FutureBasic supports access to Mac OS library calls. FB began life in the mid-1980s as ZBasic, which was created by Andrew Gariepy and envisioned as a cross-platform development system. Before long, the cross-platform aspects were dropped in favor of focusing on Macintosh development. ZBasic acquired a devoted following of developers who praised its ease of use and the tight, fast code produced by the compiler. In 1992 and as the next major step after ZBasic version 5, Zedcor Inc., the company of the Gariepy brothers Andy, Mike, Peter and friends based in Tucson, Arizona presented FutureBASIC.show more
