Well there's .....

Umm, no.

Or there's .....

Oh, that's gone, too.

Nope, I think you got it exactly.

There is one common trait between these BASIC languages, passionate developers with a desire for simplicity.

I would suggest that Bacon is its own reward - a sizzling and fragrant BASIC, perhaps.

Well it looks like I'm back to talking to myself here on All BASIC. It was fun while it lasted.

I can't see where I would use BaCon vs SB. The speed difference for tasks I would write would be undetectable. I'm too spoiled not having to declare everything before I get started with the task at hand to use anything else.

You have this maddening tendency to delete/modify posts.

Your original post was about using C-Basic/Jade vs Bacon.

SB has NOTHING to do with my response, which is about c/c++ macros definitions vs BaCon.

I'm looking for constructive feedback.

If you have tried Script BASIC, what do you dislike about it the most?

The one thing that I am spoiled for, and most languages lack (and not just BASIC of any flavour) is a quick and easy, drag & drop interface form designer (I was spoiled by VB6, after all) with all of the event handling bundled up alongside.

We have had this conversation often in the past.

Otherwise, I find SB to be eminently useful for back-end and background functions, even if I do use VB6 lmost exclusively.
