==Welcome to the QB64 Wiki==

QB64 is a modern version of the Basic programming language that allows programs created using Quick Basic 4.5 or Qbasic to run on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Linux and Mac OSX. It will work on 32 or 64 bit machines and has many new features such as stereo sound, improved graphics and TCP/IP internet capabilities. QB64 can make fast and reliable programs for the entire family!
QB64 is a modern extended [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BASIC BASIC] programming language that retains [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QBasic QBasic]/[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QuickBASIC QuickBASIC] 4.5 compatibility and compiles native binaries for Windows, Linux, and macOS.
