    >Not having a PBDOS licence, I can't even look at the PBDOS online manual

    AFAIK, the 30-day money-back no-questions-asked policy applies to ALL PowerBASIC compiler products.

    Surely you can decide in 30 days if you can accomplish your task using the PB/DOS compiler.

    You can confirm current sales policies by writing mailto:[email protected][email protected]</A>

      I believe you should check first. I thought that electronic downloads of PowerBasic software were not refundable. You have to receive the product by snail mail to qualify.

      regards, Ian.

        PowerBASIC 3.5 For DOS is a supported product and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

          The compiler is really cheap, if I thought that the it would still be around in a couple of years I would buy it just to evaluate, but Steve Rossell's reply avoids making any tangible committment to it. Maybe no other vendor offers a comparable supported product, I should really check this first!

            You have quite an imagination, Chris. Best of luck finding what you want.

              I believe the PB/DOS compiler is "inexpensive", not "cheap."

                This language which divides us. To me, "cheap" means inexpensive, with no pejorative overtone. But then, I have a great imagination.

                  I don't think it is a question of if the compiler will be around in a
                  coupld of years, but if the current OS will support DOS in a couple
                  of years.

                    And?

                    See if you can get that same deal on Microsoft Office.

                    And it's not like this 'need' came up just this past Thursday and the finished application has to ship this week.

                    And as long as I am posting.....

                    I thought of an alternate solution: engage a consultant to advise and/or design the software and recommend a program development product. This is why consultants exist.
