An interesting idea that works out strangely well, using with . Plus it seems like it might be possible to use it with C++, based on how it generates the code for user-defined types.

@SuperFloppies I wonder how much of basic you could implement with macros.

@gudenau Probably a good chunk of it. However, the really nice thing is that FreeBASIC essentially just compiles to C anyway. It has a static support runtime that is included in the final program output, so the only dynamic linker dependencies are those for a standard C++ program, plus curses.

@SuperFloppies I'm not saying that's a replacement or anything, just a tangent. :-P

The errors wouldn't be of any help thougt.
