You have the possibility of a syntax close to c, directly c, integrate an assembler syntax, prefer an object style, make macros, or try to define your own keywords (an approach that I tried with lzle) . Without elegance and thoroughness, language can never do all that. Often, what may seem "weird" is related to some of the "spirit" of the language: ease, versatility, and creativity. Having been able to keep all of this while offering object or low level possibilities is a feat of the developers involved in the design, documentation, maintenance and development of that tool.
I admit I really feel lost when I come to Free Basic and I want to restrict myself to only a small subset of it.
Your language has so many keywords and so many overlapping functions. There are so many ways to do one thing. And I prefer only one and correct way to do something. It's very powerful but I think if I stop coding in it for a few months when I come back I will just forgot everything.
It's truly a very big language.
p/s: Just my own opinion with my limited knowledge when I first encounter Free Basic.
