Is FreeBasic An IDE?

Postby alejandro_62 » Dec 12, 2016 18:01

Hi everyone, I'm from Mexico and I'm completely new to this, yes, completely new to this.
Also, excuse my English.
I have a question
Is FreeBasic just a compiler or is it also an IDE?

If FreeBasic is not in IDE then what IDE can I use to create programs?

Thank you very much for your answers.

Hi alejandro_62,

welcome! FreeBasic is only a compiler. There are different IDEs. These are the most commonly used:

1. FBIDE: Simple editor for Windows with syntax highlighting etc., easy to use. Download: https://www.freebasic-portal.de/downloads/ides-fuer-freebasic/fbide-046-fuer-windows-patched-195.html. Have a look here how to configure FBIDE: http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19950.

2. FBEdit: IDE with many features for Windows, including also a GUI designer which generates Windows 32 API code. Download: https://www.freebasic-portal.de/downloads/ides-fuer-freebasic/fbedit-ide-30.html.

3. Geany: Very comfortable editor for Windows and Linux for a lot of programming languages, including FreeBasic. Download: http://www.geany.org/.

And you will also need the FreeBasic Manual (FB-manual-1.05.0-chm.zip), Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbc/files/Documentation/
