Want to buy software converter from PB to FB
« on: March 11, 2017, 05:27:34 PM »

Hello folks

i want to buy a software converter that can convert or translate from Powerbasic code to Freebasic code
bcos PB doesn't look like going to have a 64bit compiler within the next couple of years????

If you really want to work with Free Basic (and I say really because you have been asking for converters to other languages) I will advice you to start to learn the language and don't wait for a converter. I don't think that nobody will be interested in writing such a tool, and if somebody tries he will fall miserably, as it happened with an attempt to transtale VB  to PB.

Thanxx Jose for yer advice.

i only program part time, my needs i think can be satisfied by FB or PB,  i started a bit
on PB and would like to do it with 64bit and may want to experiment with multi platform
which i think FB is adapted to them.
