I've been searching for an IDE for FB or BASIC in general, and all that I could find so far are compatible with VB. I was wondering how different the syntax is, would that be good enough?
Took a while before i noticed this reply, sorry about that but it's better late than never :D
I dont know any good pure IDE for linux, except those wich comes with the compiler (such as FreePascal etc.). I like to use Gedit text editor and compile from terminal. If you want FB syntax colors for it, i did write an tutorial how to get them http://www.ascii-world.com/fb-to-gedit-howto
Also for Scite is possible to get FB syntax colors, and its pretty easy to set-up for compiling FB code with one button. Scite is like multilangiage IDE. It works ok but i ratherly use my way. There is tutorial how to get FB syntax colors for it somewhere at FB forums. Go there and use search, should not be hard to find.
just loaded FreeBasic onto Puppy Lnux, and the supplied editor, Geany, seems to provide syntax colors, and also compile and execute buttons on the toolbar.
