Five PowerBASIC Compilers to choose from! Which PowerBASIC Compiler is right for your next project? Compiler Comparison
Powerful Debugging! Our compilers are so fast, an interpreter for debugging is unnecessary. An integrated debugger works in conjunction with the PowerBASIC editor and is part of the PowerBASIC environment! Set breakpoints and display the value of variables or set watch and see how variable values change as your program executes!
Integrated Development Environment! Color syntax highlighting with selectable colors, fonts, and choice of keyword case. Printed listings in color, again with your choice of fonts. Mouse wheel scrolling. Untold levels of undo. Better debugging, with intuitive watch/unwatch variable selections. Code Finder ListView shows Sub/Function/Method/Property names, aliases, type, and line number. You can sort on any column, in either direction, and change the column order in a flash. All this, and even more, make the IDE a joy to use.




Click me! PowerBASIC Compiler for Windows   PowerBASIC Forms  
PowerBASIC for Windows creates applications with a Graphical User Interface (GUI), to provide the typical "Look and Feel" of Windows.

It creates highly efficient EXEs and industry-standard DLLs, with Regular Expressions, multi-threading, a built-in Assembler, a full Macro facility, Create client COM applications and COM components using Dispatch, Direct, Automation, or Dual interfaces, and much more. The machine code generated by PowerBASIC is among the best in the industry, both in terms of size and execution speed. It compares most favorably with leading compilers of any dialect, including Visual Basic, Delphi, C++, Fortran, and others. With PowerBASIC, you'll end BloatWare forever!
Use this complete, self-contained, visual design environment along with PowerBASIC for Windows. Design user-interfaces in record time. Easily "drag and drop" controls, select fonts, colors, styles, just the way you want them. Import forms from Visual Basic, Visual Studio, or even hand-written DDT. Includes a menu editor, tab order editor, even a version resource editor. Without this product, you're working too hard!

"Just thought to drop you a line to say that the latest version of PowerBASIC for Windows is indeed great. I particularly like the small EXE sizes it generates which can be easily shared, and the speed of execution of compiled code continues to amaze me."

Click me! PowerBASIC Console Compiler
Create applications that run in the Console (the "DOS box") under Windows. It's as straightforward as programming for DOS, yet gets you beyond those DOS limitations. Finally you CAN use gigabytes and gigaabytes of memory (yes HUGE arrays) - because this is a Windows compiler! Nearly six times faster than the best DOS Basic around! The high degree of source code compatibility with PowerBASIC, QuickBasic, GW-BASIC and BASICA makes it easy to port existing DOS applications to run under Windows 95 through Windows 7 and more.

"I recently bought the PowerBASIC Console Compiler for Windows. Great deal, and what a powerful package. I like it!"

Click me! PowerBASIC Compiler for DOS
  PowerTree B+ Tree Manager  
PC Magazine's Editor's Choice! (September 28, 1993) DOS BASIC programmers want supported compilers - that continue to improve (DOS isn't dead!). PowerBASIC is clearly the standard of comparison for BASIC compilers. Incredible string handling, instant TSRs, a built-in assembler, new data types, BCD variables, direct array operations (sort, scan, insert, delete), fast math, and many other BASIC firsts. Complete online manuals!
If you like "smaller and faster" then PowerTree is just what you need! PowerTree is a fast B+Tree manager for DOS and Windows that can index more than two billion records with no limitations on the type of data file. With PowerTree, anything is possible...

"Because PowerBASIC for DOS can link in object code at compile time, it can do anything the hardware is capable of. I've used this method to create flat memory models within my Powerbasic programs that can access all of memory at high speed, I've taken over the timing tick, keyboard and com port interrupts for my own, nefarious ends :-), and I control proprietary hardware devices that lack DOS drivers. Powerbasic then provides the powerful, easy-to-program front-end that glues these assembly subroutines together."
