A reminder of who developed the greatest QBasic interpreter/compiler of all time:

Rob Galleon!

and i will tell you who created the best basic-interpreter/compiler
from the technical point of view - author of Creative Basic
on Windows - of course

and QBasic is product of Microsoft  - not Galeon

Let's also remember it (QB64) is a BASIC to C/C++ translator, not an interpreter and as far as the compiling part goes, it uses a third party compiler, I think it's  MinGW, to compile the code to an exe. It also requires another third party software, formerly SDL and now GL, to render the program window. Rob wanted to program that tool but didn't have the time. It was a bit of a rocky road going from SDL to GL but  I'll give him tons of credit for working out the problems in fairly short order.

It's been 10 years now since Rob first took his project public. Let's hope it can stay around for another 10, which would surpass the longevity of QBASIC.

I read the link, and saw the original article back in the day. Thanks for posting it. Oh, btw, I don't know what Rob's last name is, but I'll bet Galleon is just his nick. He would go by Galleon Dragon for some of his other ventures.

@pete: Technically, according to Wikipedia, QB64 as an "emitter" which "converts" BASIC code to 'C' which then "translates" the 'C' code to an .EXE or something like that!?

Erik.

(and Rob developed QB64, he did not invent BASIC, yes)
