REALbasic has been superseded by Xojo. This Wikibook is maintained for those seeking information on legacy systems and as a historical document.
Our Purpose[edit | edit source]
This project is not an effort to recreate existing REALbasic documentation. Instead, our goal is create materials that can be used to teach programming skills using REALbasic. We want contributors to assume the readers of these pages are new not only to REALbasic, but to programming in general. Our goal is a complete beginners' guide to programming, not a guide to advanced techniques in REALbasic.
Teachers and students are our primary audience. A secondary audience would be those individuals wanting to learn programming independently using REALbasic.
