I'm glad Script BASIC found a home in your toolbox of languages.

Keep us in the loop as your projects unfold.

I have been having fun ever since I first installed Script Basic (much more fun than VB6)

At the moment, most of my fun is involved with academic and outdoor pursuits rather than advancing any of my computer-related projects - indeed, the only programming I have done in 3 months is a couple of Windows Scripting Engine scripts and a change to one of my VB6 data-crunchers in order to fix a broken RTF file output routine (and even that was all trivial in nature).

How are things going in general with Script BASIC? Are you having fun yet?  :)

Brilliant, thanks.

Not that I'm actually using them at the moment.

I replaced the Script BASIC Windows 32 bit Inno install file in the first post with a new build that was missing the ODBC and MySQL extension module DLLs. I'll attach a zip of just those two files to put in your modules  Script BASIC sub-directory.

Hopefully others will give Script BASIC a try and share their experience. You can lead a horse to water ...

Most of what I do tends to be hardware and/or user constrained, so there is little advantage to compiling for me. My programs spent an inordinate amount of time waiting for disc accesses to complete.

The only heavyweight thunking I do is a program to calculate specific activity and dose from a chemical formula, but I do that in a mixture of batch and compiled VB6 - and a list of 1800 minerals takes less than 15 seconds to handle and output to CSV and rich text document files - so it probably wouldn't take much more using SB.

And yet SB is the only one of the lot that does what I want it to do in both a straightforward AND a timely manner.

There has been few if any projects I have done that required using a compiler rather than an interpreter. If I have a CPU intensive function, I just write a C extension module and use it seamlessly with SB.

Sadly, programming is something where the majority of people follow the trend of "what's bright, shiny and new" ... and older programming hacks like myself want to use a tool that does what is needed without a massive learning curve.

I installed Eclipse, a while back, and had to take it out - given that it took 20 minutes to load, and was unusably sluggish once loaded (and *that* is what people are using?). SB's lean profile is just the ticket.

Of course, knowing the way these things go, I'm just the only gobby one - the rest sit and nod while mumbling "yeah, yeah, yeah".  ;D

I do admit, though, that once my current systems give up the ghost, I'm more than likely to move to Linux - I just don't like the way Windows is headed.

I released Script BASIC for Windows 32 bit  on Valentines day. No one other than you showed any love. I think I'll focus my efforts on IoT and Linux instead. The problem when there are over 100 variations of BASIC.
