QB legacy

Post by angros47 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 2:31 pm

QB64 is considered the heir of qbasic.

But there were other offrings: the most know is FreeBasic, but do you remember XBasic? Xbasic, like QB64 and FreeBasic, has been originally written in QB, then it became self-hosting; and, from it, originated XBlite.

And who recall less fortunate compilers written in QBasic? GaBasic, MoonRock, UltraBasic?

Do you recall them?
