Hello, and welcome to the ""FreeBASIC"" wiki. ""FreeBASIC"" is free, open source and in active development.

[[CompilerAbout|About]] | [[CompilerFeatures|Main Features]] | [[CompilerHistory|Project history]] | [[CompilerCredits|Credits]] | [[GnuLicenses|Licenses]]
This wiki contains the [[DocToc|FreeBASIC Manual]]. The manual 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 development version. The content on this wiki is created and updated by users and developers of ""FreeBASIC"". Here is a list of people who spent a lot of time getting this wiki up and running:

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

==How to get involved in FB development==

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. 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 runtime library as well as the graphics library (both written in C). Feel free to contact other developers via the forum, the ""##freebasic"" IRC channel on freenode, or the trackers on ""SourceForge"". [[|Join the discussion on Discord]]
