BASIC for Linux(R), Mac(R) OS X and Windows(R)KBasic is a powerful programming language, which is simply intuitive and easy to learn. It is a new programming language, a further BASIC dialect and is related to VB.NET(R), Visual Basic(R), Visual Basic for Application(R) and Java(R). It combines the best features of those tools and comes with built-in backward support for those tools and QBasic(R) as it is 100% syntax compatible to VB6, VBA and QBasic(R).
Additionally, it comes with support for VB.NET(R) syntax, functions and similar objects and classes.
Create modern applications in zero timeBut this is NOT a VB.NET(R) or VB6 clone! It is a full featured object-oriented language, which supports the best modern programming techniches known with well designed objects, events and plenty of documentation.
KBasic is an open source, easy-usable, object-oriented, interpreted, stable, platform-independent, fast and modern programming language. More exactly said KBasic is an event-controlled programming language. KBasic is a multiplatform programming language, so almost the entire API is the same on all platforms and window systems.
Together with KBasic you are able to create modern object oriented applications, e. g. for tasks such as GUI, SQL and more.
KBasic is available in English and German. Other languages such as French, Chinese and Spanish are in preparation.
Cross-PlatformKBasic uses Qt(R) as its toolkit to provide cross-platform abilities. Qt(R) is the best C++ cross-platform toolkit available and KBasic is the easiest way to get cross-platform development without the needs to learn C++ as it combines the expressive power of C++ with the familiarity and ease of use of VB6. The Qt(R) API and tools are consistent across all supported platforms, enabling platform independent application development and deployment. Windows(R), Linux(R) and Mac(R) OS X are supported platforms.

Since its commercial introduction in early 1996, Qt(R) has formed the basis of many thousands of successful applications worldwide. Qt(R) is also the basis of the popular KDE(R) Linux(R) desktop environment, a standard component of all major Linux(R) distributions. Read more at KDE(R)’s website . That means that the internal functions of KBasic use the high-quality Qt(R) library functions, which are the top of the art: fast, stable, bug-free and tested and used worldwide!
What does the name KBasic mean?KBasic means QtBASIC, but QBasic is used as most people know and QtBasic isn’t allowed at all, so KBasic is the best choice. Other possibilities could be KoolBasic or even KDEBasic. It’s your choice!
