Top community discussions about FutureBASIC

FutureBasic 5 builds Mac OS X Carbon 32-bit and Cocoa 64-bit applications. The FutureBasic 5 IDE consists of a syntax-aware editor, and a translator (FBtoC) that converts FB code into C/Objective-C code. The translation is then compiled with the clang 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 build standard Mac applications using both FB source, C and Objective-C

What's New in FutureBASIC

Version 5.7.113:
  • CocoaUI allows users to build 64-bit Cocoa user interfaces while still using standard basic statements.
  • CocoaUI is still being developed and has added several hundred new features over the past twelve FB versions.

Requirements for FutureBASIC

  • OS X 10.6 or later
  • Xcode must be installed for access to the clang compiler; Xcode itself is not launched and not used while using FB.
    • It is possible to install clang without installing Xcode but installing Xcode is going to be much easier, though Xcode use is not required.
