FutureBasic 5 builds Mac OS X Carbon applications (32-bit only) and command-line tools (32- and 64-bit). The FutureBasic 5 IDE consists of a syntax-aware editor, and a translator (FBtoC) that converts FB code into C code. The translation is then compiled with the clang system compilers.
Beginners can use a simplified run-time, ConsoleWindow, to write programs while not having to worry about things such as a graphical user interface (GUI) or printing. Experts can build standard Mac applications using both FB source, C and Objective-C
