"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."
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.

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

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.
