From the 80s to eternity

How BASIC made its way into the 21st century

The BASIC language has been the front door into programming for countless people. That holds true for us. After having been exposed to it in the early contacts with computers, most people have developed a love for programming that not only goes on today but also extends to the language itself. Contrary to what some may say, having learned BASIC has given to many the basis for a long-standing career writing computer software.

An Australian guy once decided that using emulation to be able to run QuickBASIC/QBasic in modern systems was a drag and decided to change that, and thus QB64 was born (originally as QB32). What it does is translate BASIC code into C++, which then gets compiled into native binaries for Windows, Linux and macOS.

QB64 not only allows for older programs written in BASIC to run smoothly in today's modern systems but it also allows for modern software development as it extends the language to use advanced features available in operating systems nowadays as well as OpenGL, which is the library used for rendering across different platforms.

Need to share a code snippet but don't need all the fuss of traditional online tools?

BASBin is what you're after.

Just paste code, hit the button, and share the link away.

Files are wiped regularly, so treat it as the temporary storage it is, OK?

Or maybe you need to share an image, or other type of binary file. If that's the case, BINBin is for you.

Select the file to share, hit the button, and share the link.
