FBSL – Freestyle Basic Script Language

I met Gerôme Guillemin at work (well yes his personal page is totally outdated, he now has long hairs). He invented and supported FBSL, its surrounding development tools and some sample programs.

What is quite amazing with this script language is that it only requires a simple 450 KB exe file to run the FSBL scripts and all scripts perform very well (even with the OpenGL samples). The executed programs look like they are some native Win32 applications. I’d say it’s the perfect language for basic style languages addicted programmers.

You can get the latest version here.

The program is closed source but he’s ok to give the sources to people ready to get involved in the project.

By the way, Gerôme Guillemin is the first person I know to have played with the TI-74. I’ve spent a lot of time with this amazing single line calculator that my father owns.

Just a little sample code he sent me and I frapsed, encoded and uploaded on DL :

  1. Hello Florichette !

    Thanks a lot for this nice description ! 🙂
    I’ve seen the capture and the video you’ve made, my Yoda friend aka Mike LOBANOVSKY will be very happy to see this vid 😉

  2. Hi Florent,

    Thank you for this nice presentation. Yoda is my favorite avatar so I couldn’t resist the temptation to use it in this little demo. FBSL is quite capable of doing much trickier and more serious OpenGL and GDI things in an intelligent way like other well-developed high-level languages do. This simple one was published at the FBSL forum just as my small joker gift to my francophone friends, and I am glad to count you in as a new one! 😀
