Default Basic Programming under OpenBSD?

The "thread" does include "you name it"

Yes I know Basic - "Beginners all purpose programming language" is "NOT" a real
programming language.
It should not be mentioned in the same sentence with giants like C, java, pearl,
python, php, and almost all others.

Really, with the goto's, lack of cross platform compatibility,
lack of powerful modern features festering poor programming habits, etc etc etc.
Why would anyone?????

Well, "I use it" for personal reasons and find it quick and easy.

So,

Has anyone been able to get X11basic or FreeBasic compiler/interpreter
to work on OpenBSD?

links: ????

That is not true. There has been commercial software for general ledgers, payroll, accounts receivable, utilities industry, beverage industry, shipping, you name it and it probably has been programmed in BASIC.

I also wouldn't categorize it as "dead" as a lot of people like to say, because that would mean it doesn't have any life. Just because it is the in vogue language today like Javascript, Python, Java, doesn't qualify it as not relevant. As long as one person still uses BASIC, then it has life and a purpose, and it is relevant to you.

The operating systems I still use today are OS/2 and Plan 9, and I still use REXX as language. Others consider them dead, but they are useful to me.

Default basic

You misread the post !
I am a serious Basic programmer, with respect for the language..
But, most professional programmers knock the language with language
(no-pun intended) as i used in the first few lines of the post.

################################################## #####################
The post was asking if anyone has installed X11Basic or Freebasic compiler / interpreter
on OpenBSD and maybe supply a link.or any info they may have.

It was not intended to "Troll" .or. start a programmers range war, even though.
it might be capable.

I'm not aware of any BASIC ports/packages. But I discovered lang/bacon while looking into it. This port is relatively new, and available for -current users.
