FreeBASIC is an open source (under GPL), 32-bit compiler. It is designed to be syntax compatible with QuickBASIC, while expanding on the language and capabilities. It compiles for DOS, Microsoft Windows and Linux, and is being ported to other platforms.
While yet in beta stage, FreeBASIC can already be used in real applications. The compiler, and its more than 45 thousands of lines of code, is compiled by itself.
