GNU Liberty Basic

Windows, Linux


GNU Liberty BasicThe GNU/Liberty Basic Compiler Collection (GLBCC) is a suite of free libraries to compile Liberty Basic code to a small and fast stand-alone application. GLBCC originally started as a single utility to convert Liberty Basic code to C but quickly became an integrated compiler system. Normally, a compiler consists of a pre-processor, a language compiler that generates assembly code, an assembler that generates object files, and a linker that actually generates an executable. GLBCC works by adding another tool (LBPP) that allows Liberty Basic code to be compiled by GCC. There is also a runtime library called libLB that provides all the necessary run time functionality. Another tool included acts as a front end to allow for a user friendly development environment.

It's a sourceforge download, and you don't need yahoo at all, so basically you are getting spam because something else. BTW, this compiler works with earlier versions of Liberty BASIC. I think that GLBCC is an abandoned project.

I could never get this to work, even with the simplest 'hello world' program! And what's worse, ever since I downloaded it I've been plagued with spam emails from a glbcc yahoo.groups source, none of which have anything to do with the program. People should try Emergence Basic instead, a far better and more reliable environment.

Nice, I used to use liberty BASIC when I first started out, but now ived moved on butthis seem's to be a very handy little tool given liberty BASIC simplicty, and now cross-platformynessss.
