FutureBASIC for Mac7.0.4

04 March 2021

Compile Intel Mac applications.

What is FutureBASIC for Mac

FutureBasic 7 builds macOS 64-bit applications for both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs. The FutureBasic 7 IDE consists of a syntax-aware editor, and a translator which seamlessly builds using the system compilers.

Beginners can use a simplified run-time to write programs while not having to worry about things such as a graphical user interface (GUI) or printing. Experts can combine FB source, C and Objective-C within an application.

What's new in FutureBASIC

Version 7.0.4:
Bug Fix
  • Labels ( as used in 'goto' ) failed to convert from C strings to CFStrings resulting in a nil pointer and crash when subsequent code tried to use it.
Errors file
  • Errors encountered during build are no longer saved to an Errors file. The Errors and Warnings window displays errors as before.
Menu
  • Clean Build Folder now closes the Build Log window, if it's showing
Errors window
  • Save button added to errors window bottom border

I have FutureBasic 1.0.3 from years ago when it was developed by Zedcore, and ran on 68k macs . I've tried futurebasic 5 but it feels so different. does any of the same environment from years ago still exist in the new version of it ?

Staz & co continues to provide excellent support to the feature rich, high speed BASIC compiler insulating us poor BASIC programmers from the dramatic changes in MacOS from 68K to PPC to MacOS X - some feat!

To whom it may concern: I highly recommend FutureBASIC (all versions). I've been using it for over ten years and am very impressed with both the nature of the language and the level of technical support -- which in my opinion are simply the best available. I've programmed in numerous other languages (including C, C++) and find that FB is the best supported, not only by its makers (i.e., Staz Software), but by other FB programmers via the FB list server. The list server has literally hundreds of FB programmers (including Staz) attending and answering all types of questions from newbie level to advanced leading-edge specifics. I find that the followers of FB are a religious cult of fine professional people passionately dedicated to supporting FB -- they are in affect a mirror of the product they support. So, in my opinion, if you want to do serious Mac development, or learn programming, then you can do no better than FutureBasic. tedd
