SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


QB2C is a package which makes possible execution of BASIC programs under most of the UNIX systems provided that a C compiler is available on the system. It essentially consists of the BASIC-to-C translator (qb2c) which translates BASIC code into C code, graphics included. The BASIC syntax largely follows Microsoft's (R) QuickBASIC (C) syntax. Normal BASIC graphics is now output to X11 console, therefore X11 is also required. Additional possibility to mix BASIC and C code within the single program file makes QB2C more than just a translator: it can serve as a tool for easy C programming, especially of small programs and compiled substitutes for shell scripts.
