I have been learning various programming languages, however the ease of use that QBASIC gives is still very appealing. I hate what programming has become, full of class and sytem calls; the environment is a clouded mess of system variables that really serve no purpose in actual application.
I guess my question is what is the de facto today? I want a parser that follows you while you write, and catches syntax errors in the API, not at run-time. Is there a newer version of BASIC out there that makes windows programming simple?? I am willing to go back to line numbers if I have to. If I have to continue, I will not take a break, until I have an environment that IS simple to program. I mean come on, simple selection box, yes it is part of my window, why should i name it? it's just a box. I would rather draw my own... and make it a selection sphere, then put my event handle inside the sphere function.
thank you for your comments
