-style programming language created by William Yu
. The last release was in 2000
, I believe William is now working for Yahoo.
The language is quite easy to learn and I prefer it to Visual BASIC
. Rapid Q compiles on both Windows
. Here is an example of a Console
program in Rapid Q.
dim x as integer
x = 0
while x < 10
x = x + 1
As you can see, it's quite straightforward. The compiler also has support for form based programs, and has a drag and drop style form designer built in.
Here is an example of a form program:
declare sub show
CREATE Form as QForm
width = 500
height = 500
Caption = "My first program"
CREATE Button as QButton
left = 1
top = 1
width = 100
height = 20
caption = "Click me, if you dare!"
onclick = show
showmessage "You clicked the button, good for you."
