Sdl Basic - History

History

SdlBasic development started at December 2002, when its author, Vroby (Roberto Viola), got an idea on using SDL libraries on wxBasic core, instead of wxWidgets libraries. There were major releases in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2012. Prior to 2005 any text editor was used to write program code. In 2005 an IDE was added. In 2012 the package was split into the IDE and the interpreter, although the IDE could be used to run code. Main download site is Sourceforge. The support site (online documentation and forum) has moved and has changed maintainer. Now to be found at the link added below, on altervista.org. The original author still contributes to the forum.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Perhaps universal history is the history of the diverse intonation of some metaphors.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    The history of work has been, in part, the history of the worker’s body. Production depended on what the body could accomplish with strength and skill. Techniques that improve output have been driven by a general desire to decrease the pain of labor as well as by employers’ intentions to escape dependency upon that knowledge which only the sentient laboring body could provide.
    Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)

    Most events recorded in history are more remarkable than important, like eclipses of the sun and moon, by which all are attracted, but whose effects no one takes the trouble to calculate.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
