A few questions...

Post by eriksiers »

1. Any downloads available?
2. What language(s)/dev system(s)/compiler(s)/etc. are you developing in?
3. Not a question as such, but I'm curious about some of the choices you've made regarding the language -- specifically the more-than-a-little-bit-like Pascal syntax. I'm interested in the "why," not the "how."
Any errors are my own. Accuracy is attempted but NOT guaranteed!
"Good" and "good enough" are not the same thing.
http://eriksiers.altervista.org/ -- good things coming at some point. Eventually.

1. No, unfortunately due to lack of time the first beta of the compiler has been delayed.
2. The compiler is currently being developed in FreeBASIC/C and NASM. But eventually SB should become a self-hosting compiler.
3. Pascal is a very structured language, but somewhat verbose and inconsistent at the same time. BASIC traditionally lacks structure. SharpBASIC attempts to be the best of both worlds.
