    Stephane and Steve

    For sometime you have been asking Powerbasic to include a few hundred (or thousand!) new features
    in the next version. OOP, Properties, Methods, Classes, Events, GUI, Drag and Drop, Forms, etc.
    just like they have it in DELPHI and Visual Basic.

    All very good ideas.

    But here is a better idea:

    Microsoft and Borland are bigger than Powerbasic and have more money and lots of developers.
    They already have everything we want (GUI, Properties, Methods….). If we ask them to make their
    compiler better than PB so it can make faster and smaller EXE then it is easier for them to do it
    because they do not have to add thousands of new features. All they have to do is to make one
    thing better, the compiler.

    If the two of you go to Borland and Microsoft forums and ask for a better compiler and give everyone
    here the address of those forums then we will all come over and support both of you in those forums.
    When we get to Borland or Microsoft forums, we must keep repeating our wish list and not leave until
    they give us a compiler better than PB!

    You mean, stay there for the rest of our lives?

    People, please ease up a bit. While these constant whishes for PB to
    become Delphi is becoming a bit boring to see, everyone must have their
    full rights to post their whishes. Simply ignore what you don't like.

      Steven,

      Why do you posting QuickBasic sources ???????
      I very hate QuickBasic , I love PowerBasic and Borland
      I'm right for a better graphical user interface with components, forms, units
      that okay

      Greetings,
      Stephane

        Yes I agree.

        Post the same wish once or twice. Maybe three times. No more.

        Perhaps Powerbasic should introduce a new rule regarding repeat postings.
        The forum is rapidly loosing its value as a useful tool. It is now more like
        a religious discussion group. Next thing we will be arguing about how many
        angels would fit on the head of a pin.

          Single-precision angels or double-precision angels?
