Who Uses PowerBASIC?

Wouldn't it be interesting to learn who's purchased PowerBASIC? Just to get an idea of how they might be using it? We thought so, too! See if you recognize any names on this customer list...

Second to None

"If you program, or would like to, PowerBASIC makes the finest Windows compilers money can buy. It has an extremely loyal customer base and for good reason. Not only is the compiler rock-solid, but the support and consistent improvements are second to none. PB produces the fastest, smallest EXEs and DLLs imaginable, I kid you not. If you are into Windows programming (or web programming as it creates great CGI apps too!) check it out."

Why PowerBASIC?

Very fast, very tight code. A feature set unmatched by the others. Create a single EXE, with no run-times nor dependencies. That's the Power of PowerBASIC! Just what's so special about the PowerBASIC Feature Set? Check out PowerFeatures and see for yourself! A simple chart to describe every statement and function in each of our three compilers. Even better, see how many (or how few) are actually supported by Microsoft products. TCP, UDP, Serial Communications. Regular Expressions, Inline Assembler, Dynamic Dialog Tools, and much, much more. Every reserved word in each of our compilers is defined.

Save big with Electronic Delivery!

Most PowerBASIC products can now be delivered by electronic mail! No long wait for a package to arrive... No high shipping costs... For only $6 per order (no matter how many items), your PowerBASIC order can be emailed directly to your computer. If you're outside the U.S., you could save even more! You won't pay taxes or duties to a freight company or post office, because they aren't involved in the delivery! Check your tax code to be sure, but some countries charge no tax at all on software delivered electronically. This could be your lucky day!

PowerBASIC Update

We are back! All orders, emails, and forum notifications are working! I know it has been a long time coming, and much thanks to Tom Hanlin for his efforts in resolving these issues.

Now that PowerBASIC's daily operations are back on track, we can now move forward with our new projects: maintenance updates for our current products, as well as completion of new projects Bob had started, and PowerVivian is adamant about completion.

As always, our "No Vaporware" policies bar me from further details, but feel free to speculate! :) With Tom at the helm of our development, and with his history with PowerBASIC and Bob's projects, I see nothing but continued success.

For my contributions, look for a new website, streamlining of our ordering system, and new programs - including my personal pet projects that I will drop tid-bits of information as we progress.

Do not hesitate in contacting us, via email, responses will be a bit delayed during during some catching up.
