I found FreeBasic on Scoop, and it's up to date.
This was me installing it:
Code: Select all
c:\arp>scoop info freebasic
Description: BASIC compiler for Microsoft Windows, DOS and Linux.
License: GPL-2.0-or-later (https://spdx.org/licenses/GPL-2.0-or-later.html)
c:\arp>scoop install freebasic

Creating shim for 'fbc'.
'freebasic' (1.07.1) was installed successfully!
I wonder how it got on there?
Did someone add it to their site, or did the developers of scoop do it themselves?
Anyway, I thought some folks might like to have this option.
There's an update command, so installing and updating are one-liners now.
According to the Scoop Docs,
you can change the install directory, and you can choose a version to install.
