Watcom debugger with FBC?

I'm try to find a way to move from MS-BASIC/MASM to FreeBASIC on DOS. Later, I would like to move again to non-X-Window Linux. Can the DOS version of Watcom Debugger be made to work with debug output from FreeBASIC? If so, what options are needed on FBC command-line and what options must be included...

Re: Full Screen w/multiple monitors in Ubuntu

Hi speedfixer, Thank you for your example. I looked over it (and ran it) today, and I see that it allows me to determine the size of my desktop which expands onto two screens. However, my problem is that I want to develop a fullscreen FreeBASIC program on one screen, and use the debugger (Insight) o...

Full Screen mouse cursor Ubuntu

Using FreeBASIC under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (64 bit): (1) Is there a way to disable (hide) the mouse cursor in a full-screen graphics FreeBASIC program? (2) Is there a way to alter the mouse cursor? I'm used to handling the mouse cursor myself via callback in DOS. I am testing this with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS ...

Full Screen w/multiple monitors in Ubuntu

I'm new to Linux and FreeBASIC. My past experience is with DOS and BASIC 7.1 (and assembler). I am evaluating the feasibility of moving a digital signage application from BASIC 7/MASM on DOS to FreeBASIC on Linux. I might even keep a DOS version based on FreeBASIC. This test was to see what happens ...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS -- cannot run fbc

You were correct -- I downloaded using the green button on the FB website which looked ok to me but was apparently 32-bit.
After installing the 64-bit version, I am now able to compile.
Additionally, I got Geany installed and working.
I'm looking at debuggers now.

Thanks for your help.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS -- cannot run fbc

I recently tried to install FreeBASIC on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I am totally new to Linux and FreeBASIC. I am an experienced DOS, QBASIC, MASM programmer. I read the forum thread on installing on Ubuntu -- I installed all of the recommended packages. I extracted the tarball for FreeBASIC into /home/danie...
