Finally got MBCoder2008 up and ready. It combines what Diabuilder and MBcoder did as separate programs.
Check the menu nav at the left.

The latest addition to my "bag-of-apps" is finally ready.
MapBasic Windows Extended [ aka MBWinEX ]
Here's the low down:
Well, after several years of not really maintaining the site, it's time for a face lift.
Since Oct 2005 I have been fully on SimplyMEPIS Linux [Link] so this undertaking has been a real experience, creating it with a combination of KWrite, Quanta and FireFox.
OK, I still have the Windohze box, for full fledged MapInfo work, but I have had to use it only a few times.
How is MapInfo on Linux, you might ask.
Well keep that 'dohze box available, as all that exists currently is basically in the realm of "hacks".
I did purchase Win4Lin Pro [Link] and I have not had the time figure out if the "jerky" mouse is just a tweek or if it is inherent, but it does make MI pretty useless except for simple database work, in other words you can forget major artwork.
Dang it, I checked the link and now Version 2.5 is out....[looks around for credit card....]
So Plan B, use TightVNC [Link] on 'dohze and run MI from there across the network
[100mip now - Wireless Router with 1000mip is still a bit pricey].
Ok it works better on the mouse side but it's like working on an old 486-66 32meg, but it is useable.
I have not tried CrossOver Office [Link] [commercial competitor to WINE a free install in Linux distribution] but they specialize in making MS Office work.
Since WINE fails miserable, probably in the graphics/video area, I feel that this will too.
Enough of Linux, but you can read more in the Secure PC Section.....when I get written.
PLEASE, Please read the Legal Section before you download or copy anything on this site.
I take that you have and agree to terms.
