xBLiteXBLite is an offspring of xBasic for Windows started in 2001 by David Szafranski. 99% of the non-gui xBasic code is compatible with XBLite. XBLite can run in a console mode, GUI mode, or in a hidden, console-less mode. XBLite has been enhanced for use under Windows, it takes advantage of the built-in common controls GUI inherent in Windows. XBlite may create true command line Win32 console programs, use the windows common controls for creating GUI applications. All of the windows common controls and common dialogs are now available to create win32 native graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Inside the source code the programmer may use inline assembly language. The user may modify and extend the XBasic language. It has a comprehensive Help file and demo programs with over 400 topics and over 200 demo programs. The IDE code editor is a good working environment, it is based on Scintilla code editing component. XBLite EXEs are small (aprox. 16Kb) and fast.
