Gambas (Computer)     zurück

aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie kopiert und verändert

Gambas ist eine Programmiersprache zur Softwareentwicklung.

Es bezeichnet eine visuelle Open Source Programmierumgebung (IDE) für Basic unter Linux. Sie soll die Vorteile von Visual Basic auch unter Linux KDE verfügbar machen. Es gibt eine Windows Version, die im Gegensatz zu Visual Basic lizenzrechtlich frei ist.

Gambas wird von Benoît Minisini entwickelt, der in der Nähe von Paris wohnt. Man kann ihm nur dankbar sein und allen Respekt zollen. Gambas wird immer besser und ausgefeilter.

Die derzeitig (Dezember 2003) aktuelle Version ist gambas 0.80. Die 0.63 Version wird beispielsweise mit der Linux Professional Distribution 9.0 von Suse ausgeliefert und automatisch installiert.

Mit Gambas kann man sehr leicht

Gambas befindet sich noch in der Entwicklungsphase, es ist jedoch für kleinere Projekte schon recht brauchbar. Die IDE-Oberfläche ist selber in Gambas-BASIC geschrieben.



The IDE itself is written in Gambas-BASIC. The source can be reviewed as an example application in the

/usr/share/doc/packages/gambas directory.
