07-06-2001 FutureBASIC-Europe Mailinglist restarted: bytesatwork writes "Due to the technical problems with the original FutureBASIC-Europe mailinglist (that is not the original FutureBASIC-mailinglist!) a new system has been installed on a Mac OS-only basis.
You can subscribe to the FutureBASIC-Europe mailinglist by sending mail to listserv@bytesatwork.net with the following in the body of your mail: subscribe FutureBASIC-Europe your name, where your name should be replaced with your name :o)".

24-05-2001 Spying on the new Euro-FB-site... bytesatwork writes "...well, a couple of days ago I was 'elected' to preview the new FutureBASIC-Europe website - and while I am not allowed to go into details, I can promise that Jonathan, the gnome from The Powerfactory is doing a great job to make the site again more informative, enjoying and surfable.
While I am sure that you are visiting the euro.FutureBASIC.com website regularly anyway, I just want to make sure you check the site with increased frequency so you dont miss the rollout.".
27-01-2001 FutureBASIC in Italy. There is a new site for FutureBASIC in Italy. FutureBASIC in Italy wants to be the point of meeting of all the Italian programmers (professionals and hobbist) that use the environment of development by StazSoftware for the Macintosh. You can find there all the news, the links and the articles related to FB in Italy. There are also freeware applications written with FB available for download (Plug-ins for the FB^3 Editor, ...).
Click here for a visit.
26-01-2001 How FB^3 saved us $$$. From Bill Michael - listmom of the FutureBASIC-mailinglist. Some of you know that my "day job" is at a Fortune 500 company, programming "big systems" (Compaq Alphas) in Cognos' PowerHouse 4GL. Using a Windows box as a terminal emulator. No Macs allowed.
I doubt it'll _really_ change management's minds on Macs, but here's one little story of a peon with an iBook and FutureBasic^3. :-)

24-01-2001 C2FB3-development - update: CtoFB3 is a FutureBASIC^3 Application that translates "C-Language" functions into FutureBASIC^3 LOCAL FNs requiring minimal editing.
CtoFB3 is in the final stages of development and has been released as an aid for translating C code. Almost all C statements and operators are currently handled. Code fragments and entire programs can be translated, including those containing multiple nested include statements.
This Application allows FutureBasic^3 programmers who have, or have access to, substantial C Libraries, the ability to integrate that C code into their FutureBASIC Applications much more easily.
CtoFB3 is being released as freeware for FB programmers, however, if you use CtoFB3 in a project please credit this program, CtoFB3, and the author, Michael Kluskens, in your program's About Box.
Commericial distribution of CtoFB3 is prohibited without written permission from the author.

23-01-2001 Sorry for the downtime... The Basic-Central website was down for much longer than the 2 or 3 hours we anticipated.
We are awfully sorry that we could not inform you earlier about the downtime, which was planned for administrative duties like upgrading the system to PHP4 and PHPNuke 4.3.
We will inform you well in advance next time.
08-12-2000 Positioning - we need both FB & RB! Following I quote from Alains comment in reply to Romans comment on our 'Appearance Manager Demonstration' to give you all the possibility to read it :o)
"FB and RB are really different in the way you write code. Moreover, I believe that RB allows not as much different ways of coding than FB.
From what I've seen, like HyperCard, with RB you place ready-made items onto a window giving them properties and coding handlers for them. That sounds fine at first glance, but what if you miss some items or worse if there is a bug in the environment itself?
I read posts some time ago on a REALbasic mailing list where contributors were waiting for bugs...

07-12-2000 Warthog Systems -- freeware for data acquisition and analysis on the Mac. "Warthog Systems" is a set of programs for acquiring, manipulating, and analyzing data from laboratory instruments.

LabHelper is a versatile data acquisition program that uses either National Instruments hardware or several external (serial) analog-to-digital converters.  Sampling rates are much faster and the range of acceptable input voltages is much larger if you use the National Instruments cards.  The program will record up to 12 channels of data, with up to 32K samples per channel.

LabAnalyst is a powerful, versatile,..."

02-12-2000 Add your banner to the basic-central: You are the author of a program written with BASIC on the Macintosh?
- then, why not add your banner to the basic-central!
This is how it works: ...that's it. :o)
...and at this time it's free for at least 6 months...

02-12-2000 YSpeak is a free computer program for speech-and motor-disabled users. It is designed to assist in communicating in a variety of ways, reducing the input from the user to the minimum.
YSpeak is designed to run on the Apple iBook laptop, which is both inexpensive and ideally suited for the task. YSpeak will also run on any Macintosh Laptop, iMac, or Desktop computer with a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 600 pixels.
In January 2000, the author of YSpeak, Phil Yates, was diagnosed as having Motor Neurone Disease (also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Lou Gehrig's Disease, and Maladie de Charcot) Phil had the Bulbar-onset version of the condition, which meant that his speech was affected first.
YSpeak does not run on a PC-Compatible, or under any variant of Microsoft Windows, and will not be converted to do so.

13-11-2000 CtoFB3 0.4.0d release! CtoFB3 is a FutureBASIC^3 Application that translates "C-Language" functions into FutureBASIC^3 LOCAL FNs requiring minimal editing (when CtoFB3 reaches final release status).
CtoFB3 is still in the developmental stage and has been released as an aid for translating C code. Most common C statements and operators are currently handled. Code fragments and entire programs can be translated, including those containing multiple nested include statements.
This Application allows FutureBasic^3 programmers who have, or have access to, substantial C Libraries, the ability to integrate that C code into their FutureBASIC Applications much more easily.
CtoFB3 is being released as freeware for FB programmers, however, if you use CtoFB3 in a project please credit this program, CtoFB3, and the author, Michael Kluskens, in your program's About Box.
Commericial distribution of CtoFB3 prohibited without written premission from the author.
