I am not defying FBSL, in fact I know very little about it. I glanced briefly at the "home page" of it which is just a forum and did not have the time to dig very deeply into it. From what little I know, it seems to have a fairly small following and thus I doubt if anyone here, aside from Gerome himself of course, would be able to code this app using FBSL. It also seems to be a high-level language similar to VBscript, which leads me to believe it might be slower than compiled C code as well. I would be more than happy to be proven wrong of course!
No defy please
FBSL is 5 years old, and is capable of manipulating :
-1- 5 variables types : 32bits integers, 32bits floats, 64bits doubles, strings and pointers.
-2- has several native layers : COM, API, CLIPBOARD, STRING, MATHS, REGEX, COLLECTIONS, MMF, LZO COMPRESSION, SOCKETS, THREADS and CONSOLE.
-3- is able to 'self compile' into an EXEcutable that is 100% autonomous ( no extra runtime to run the code)
-4- is able to 'self decompile' an EXE into an .fbs script file/buffer
-5- has a 3rd part Stdcall flat model DLL to make C, VB, Delphi developpers using this dll to use some FBSL code through their applications.
-6- a 500 pages CHM help file that comes with grammar documentation + samples, several tutorials, macro files, declare files, constants files and more!
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is 20x faster than those scripting languages.
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is capable of beeing compiled as autonaumous EXEcutables.
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is able to call API functions from ANY kinda DLL ( C,C++,Delphi,.NET,... )
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is capable of executing VBS & JS
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is capable of GUI.
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is capable of Callbacks.
Compared to VBScript & JScript, FBSL is capable of natively Compressing Data.
Compared to C compiled code, FBSL is about 10% slower.
But FBSL remains a script language, onto its category, FBSL is placed amongst the fastest scripting languages
Yes my site is focused onto Fbsl forum, BUT don't forget that FBSL is a language, so i can guess a forum is more oriented to my language than to our personal lifes
At last, i'm not here to decorate, not making vaporware/deadware like tons of'em one can easily find over the internet... and amongst'em tons of started projects...
BTW, if you need help, i ust can invite you to my Forum, it's free and open minded
Have a good day!
PS : to reply to the question, YES, FBSL is capable of treating the kinda GUI software you want to have...
