That''s not real programming, it''s scripting.

LOL @ Spaz

Dark Basic is a real programming language, not a joke, man, LOL

I just wondered if anyone else here used it!

No, it is not a real programming language. It is a scripting language. You need to check the definition of programming language because that darkbasic interpreter program of yours is doing a LOT more than you can see at all. This is why I call it a scripting language.

Dark Basic? Hmm, is that:

MakeMeAGameAndDoEverythingForMe();

j/k, anyway, I have no clue what it is but:


programming

1. The art of debugging a blank sheet of paper (or, in these
days of on-line editing, the art of debugging an empty file).

2. A pastime similar to banging one''s head against a wall, but
with fewer opportunities for reward.

3. The most fun you can have with your clothes on (although
clothes are not mandatory).

A wise man once said "A person with half a clue is more dangerous than a person with or without one."

Surely a scripting language implies an actual engine is already in place, all Dark Basic does is simplify things by wrapping D3D functions into simpler commands - after all, it provides no GUI, a dire collision detection system (replaced straight away by faster maths collision in my game Freeform)... If you actually want to do something with it you are still forced to write a few thousand lines of code.

I consider it a programming language, just because it is small and new and *readable* doesnt make it any less...

Alright, it is a high level interpreted language. Like the original BASIC. Is is structured (ie local variables, recursive functions, nested loops)? It does restrict you a bit though.

Yep nesting is in there, as are local and global variables in functions, not sure about recursion though as I have never ever needed it so I am unsure if it is there or not - I am the sort of programmer who looks up only what I need, LOL.
