The FreeBASIC Archive


Hello, and welcome to the FreeBASIC wiki.


FreeBASIC is free, open source and in active development.

This wiki is updated whenever possible to document the latest version of FreeBASIC available. Some features documented here might not be available yet in the latest official FreeBASIC release, and may only be available when building the FreeBASIC compiler and/or runtime libraries from sources, or downloading a compiled SVN version.

From time to time, an offline version of this wiki is compiled and made available for download. A list of the wiki compilations is also available at the FBWikiDownloads Wiki downloads page.

More on the FreeBASIC project
For advanced users and developers
Improving FreeBASIC
Getting involved in FreeBASIC's development isn't hard. You can provide feedback, help improving this wiki or help developing FreeBASIC-related projects. Of course you can also contribute to the FreeBASIC compiler, by reporting bugs or submitting patches.

How to improve this Wiki
Have you found an error or omission on one of our pages? Please register on our forum at to get edit access to our wiki. Let us know about the error or omission by adding a comment to the page, or edit the content yourself and help contribute to the wiki. Have a look at the FBWikiHelp FB Wiki - Help page to get started.
Compiler development
A good way to get started is to write small patches and submitting them via the patch tracker on SourceForge, or posting them on the forum. Besides the compiler (written in FreeBASIC itself), there is the run-time librariy aswell as the graphics library (both written in C). Feel free to contact other developers via the forum, the ##freebasic IRC channel on freenode, the trackers on SourceForge, or personally by email etc.
