Call to BASIC Developers to unite
« on: March 26, 2018, 11:16:24 AM »
We are at a crossroad with BASIC and have chance to recover the lost momentum when Microsoft abandoned its most successful language. If the remaining BASIC developers unite and circle wagons around OxygenBasic to save the language, we have a chance at pulling BASIC out of its tailspin.

Unite around what?

I avoid like the plague all proprietary syntax, i cast my choice around the strict observance of the core API's, without any decoration or obscurification. The only exception is when there is not already an existing API.

This has been my moto for years...
And accessory the way i have been able to port most of my code from one language to another, using the only esperanto understood by all the Windows compilers i am working with.

Charles didn't write OxygenBasic to attract C++ programmers and suggest they use O2.
