Will it be implemented a free VB clone in the future?

Use the real visual basic, free basic etc, or learn one of the other hundreds of languages....

Learn C. If you are good at programming in VB, you should be able to learn C too. :)

Is VB a programming language ?

Check out Python instead. :wink:

I studied it in school and in univercity and I hate it. Besides there is no C for applications or C-script.

This is where learning APIs come into play, specifically, the win32 API in ROS' case.

FreeBasic is rather good with the added bonus of doing C as well as backward compatibility with even QB! :)

I have been meaning to test how the programs I have written in it work on ROS for a while now... however given they are all console applications I doubt there will be any problems. I will report back once I have had a tinker.

If you like pascal, you can use FPC (a turbo Pascal clone).
