Could you explain the history of this program please?
Was it originally written in QBasic but now ported and maintained in QB64?
Will the original program run correctly in the current build of QB64?
Yes it will, it is almost done.
I choose GFA Basic because almost everyone uses it.
I was wondering if GFA BASIC is the best language for an ST version?
For this project it is more important to have a specification of what the program does rather than the code. Then it could be ported to any language. The ideal would be to write it in C\C++ but it's support for graphics would be rather limited. You could only really rely on stdio.h and conio.h for universal portability. If BASIC has to be used for convenience it is best to split the program into as many functions as required so that each function can be easily tested and so that changes in the master version (QB64) can be back ported to the ST easily.
