The Wikibook project supports the development of the FutureBASIC programming language. FutureBASIC, also known as FB, is a compiled procedural BASIC dialect used to develop applications for Apple Macintosh family of computers.
If you would like to contribute energy to the FB Documentation Project, please read our Style Guide for FB Documentation.
Language Reference and Programming Guide
The Language Reference focuses on the FutureBASIC language and syntax. While programming is discussed, this is primarily to demonstrate the language syntax. The Programming Guide offers far more detail on accomplishing specific tasks. The Beginner's Guide is primarily concerned with how to use the FB IDE and compiling programs. It exists to explain the process of compiling applications, not as a replacement for the Programming Guide.
