gambas  3.15.2
About: Gambas is a graphical development environment based on a Basic interpreter with object extensions, a bit like Visual Basic (requires Qt).
  Fossies Dox: gambas-3.15.2.tar.bz2  ("unofficial" and yet experimental doxygen-generated source code documentation)  

gambas Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies gambas-3.15.2.tar.bz2 contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Gambas Almost Means BASIC

GAMBAS is a free implementation of a graphical development environment based on a BASIC interpreter and a full development platform. It is very inspired by Visual Basic and Java.

Go to for the language documentation.

The following pieces of code were borrowed and adapted:

  • The natural string comparison algorithme was adapted from the algorithm made by Martin Pol. See for more details.

  • The hash table implementation was adapted from the glib one.

  • The HTML entities parsing in gb.gtk comes from KHTML sources.

  • The gb.image.effect sources are adapted from KDE 3 image effect routines.

  • The gb.clipper library embeds the Clipper library. See for mode details.

  • The function that computes the easter day of a specific year uses an algorithm made by Aloysius Lilius And Christophorus Clavius.

  • The blurring algoritm is based on the 'StackBlur' algorithm made by Mario Klingemann. See for more details.

If I forget some borrowed code in the list above, just tell me.

Enjoy Gambas!
