FreeBASIC is an implementation of BASIC. Other implementations of BASIC.
FreeBASIC is a free/open source (GPL), 32-bit BASIC compiler for Microsoft Windows, protected-mode DOS (via a DOS extender), and Linux, with unofficial ports to Mac OS and FreeBSD. An experimental Xbox version is no longer maintained.


FreeBASIC makes use of the GNU Binutils programming tools as backends, and can produce console, QuickBASIC-compatible graphical and GUI executables, along with dynamic and static libraries. A GCC frontend is under development, which will enable compilation for many more operating systems than currently supported.

Currently, software libraries like GTK+, GSL, SDL, Allegro, Lua and OpenGL can be used directly (no wrappers, only function and structure prototypes), and more are being added on every new release. A complete set of the Windows API headers is also included.

The compiler, and its nearly 90,000 lines of code, was, and still is, compiled by itself (in other words, FreeBASIC is a self-hosting compiler). The first version of FreeBASIC was written in Visual Basic for DOS for that purpose.
