  •   Rapid-Q overview

    Rapid-Q is a cross platform BASIC programming language capable of generating GUI and CONSOLE applications (including CGI applications). It directly supports MySQL, DirectX, a bit of Direct3D, Sockets, a bit of COM, component/object programming, and many other nice features. Rapid-Q is currently available for Windows 95/98/NT/2000, Linux/i386, Solaris/Sparc, and HP-UX. Although Rapid-Q is still in Beta (for over a year already), it is fully functional and FREE!

    August 27, 2000   New Linux & Solaris version
      Sorry it took so long to update the Solaris version, it should be up to date with the Linux version except for a few things. INP and OUT aren't supported, and of course, no GTK support for the Solaris version.
    August 20, 2000   Page Update
