Why do you think I'm messing with Visual Studio ? I'm messing with 17 year old DOS stuff, I like it so much because it does this nice syntax checking and is very user friendly (well, maybe not for people who have never seen DOS software in action).

I do know QBasic, I started "programming" 10 years ago with QBasic ;)
The IDE was simple but very well suited Basic programming. Then i used Turbo Pascal and Turbo C with the same sort of DOS style IDE.
DevCPP and Codeblock offers a different approch since they separate the IDE editor from the compiler. Even if they has been designed for C development mainly, you can use them for HTML, PHP, Basic, Pascal... as you can configure almost all.

Official FreeBASIC IDE (made by vongodric) is similiar to things you use according to you, anyway, people do crazy stuff in QB/FB now, FB is as fast as C, while it is simple as BASIC. I'm moving to FB but first I'll use DOS version then later WIN.

It's surprising to see a basic compiler as fast than C compiler... anyway, why not ? But the main problem of basic language is the "non portability". You can find a C compiler for almost all target CPU which is not the base with basic.

BASIC is like one of those languages, that nobody (except BASIC freaks like me) wants to use, and because of its slowness in the past (now its fast) nobody even thought of having a BASIC compiler for their CPU.
And actually I don't care about portability, I use too much ASM so it will ruin every chance of easy porting (note: I prefer to use my code, other's code is last resort).

hmm...you can change the compiler,... used by VS6 ?!!!
I like it a lot ( I cost me a lot to say that...but MS did great work here) so I can dev MD on it...wow!!!!!

Yep. Check out the Frog Feast Sega CD source code. http://frogfeast.rastersoft.net/SegaCDSrc.html

It uses an nmake compatible makefile, and a utility from Loser (PSX hacker) to translate the GCC error message to VS format.
