  • You can generate a WINDOWS 3.x or Windows95 application using just GFA-BASIC.

  • Commands and Functions for matrix mathematics, statistics and trigonometry makes GFA-BASIC for Windows ideal for numeric work!

  • GFA-BASIC for Windows will also support a math co-processor if present.

  • Although GFA-BASIC for Windows is an interpreter it is extremely fast

  • GFA-BASIC for Windows has combined the best features of the Basic, C and Pascal languages.

  • As easy to use as any other Basic, but far more powerful, as structured as Pascal, as fast as C.

Create .EXE Programs:

  • You can also create .EXE files, which can be distributed free of any run time license.

  • A full Compiler and Linker to create totally independent .EXE programs is available.

  • The GFA-BASIC editor is fast and will accept abbreviated commands, allowing fast code generation:

  • The editor will also identify syntax errors at time of input, and will also query new variable names, just in case an old variable has simply been mistyped.

  • The GFA-BASIC for Windows editor also auto indents the code as it is entered.

  • Procedures and Functions can be folded down to a single line, thus improving the clarity and ease of documentation of your code.

  • The editor will also support various WINDOWS fonts, including True Type fonts.

  • The documentation is supplied in three volumes, with each command explained and documented with an example.

  • The printed documentation is over 1850 pages, most of which contains reference information to the GFA-BASIC and Windows commands.

  • Searching through so much documentation for a specific command syntax would take a long time, so GFA has provided all the command reference documentation into a on line help file.

  • Should you forget the parameters of a specific command, half way through typing the command, simply pressing Shift F1, will display the commands explanation and syntax, exactly as found within the printed documentation.

  • GFA-BASIC for Windows now has a built in resource editor capable of drawing your Dialog boxes and creating the Basic code automatically.

Library Capibilities:

  • GFA-BASIC for Windows also has a built in debugger, allowing you to single step or walk through your program, displaying selected variables.

  • With the debugger, you can now explore in detail how a Windows program works, (or doesn't work)

  • GFA-BASIC for Windows can also access dBase lll, lV and V (Windows) files with the GFA-BASIC dBASE Interface extension.

  • GFA-BASIC WINDOWS 3.x is syntax compatible with GFA-BASIC for MS-DOS, Atari TOS and Amiga OS.

  • The optional GFA-BASIC Compiler (V1.07) for Windows has been released. The compiler will enable you to produce very fast stand alone .EXE programs.

  • GFA-BASIC interpreter programs are faster than other compiled programs, but our compiled version is even faster!

  • The advanced feature of the true compiler is the ability to create DLLs for other programming languages (VB, C, PASCAL, macro...) as well as VBXs

  • A GFA-BASIC for Windows compiler to create stand alone .EXE files and .DLL's is available also as an optional product.

  • The GFA-BASIC for Windows Compiler is supplied with Optlink, possibly the fastest and most efficient linker on the market. The GFA-BASIC Compiler for Windows is powerful but still very easy to use.

  • You simply select your .GFA file that you wish to compile, then select the optimization you require and then press Compile! Your program is compiled and linked very quickly to produce a very fast stand alone .EXE program file. The GFA-BASIC Compiler for Windows can also create a .DLL and .VBX from a GFA-BASIC program.

  • You can put your own GFA-BASIC functions into a DLL which is then callable by your other programs. It is also easy to link together with C and assembler code..
