  The REALbasic University Glossary of REALbasic Terms
Most programming languages have multiple data types and different mechanisms for storing information; some methods are efficient for one kind of data, while others are more efficient for another kind.
Computer languages are either interpreted or compiled; both terms have to do with translating the English-like syntax of a programming language into assembly or machine language.
REALbasic University is a weekly instructional column on programming with REALbasic and is brought to you by REALbasic Developer, the magazine for REALbasic programmers.

 ATPM 12.01 - Review: REALbasic 2005
REALbasic is an integrated development environment, which means that everything is done within the program, from laying out the interface widgets to writing the code that gets executed.
REALbasic doesn’t allow all of its built-in classes to be subclassed, which just defeats the purpose of subclassing, or more precisely, REALbasic blurs the difference between raw data types (such as integers and strings) and class data types (such as windows and edit fields).
REALbasic goes toward assisting with this by allowing the ability to view menus as they will look on any of the platforms, but the final look of windows can only be checked by running the software on each platform.

  Macworld: Review: RealBasic 3.2
Programming on the Mac used to involve writing line after line of C or C++ code, primarily just to create standard user-interface elements.

RealBasic is available in both a $100 standard edition and a $300 professional edition (add $50 if you want a software CD and printed documentation); the latter lets you compile Windows applications and includes a single-user relational database engine that can also connect to any ODBC-compliant database.

 Introduction to Programming   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
When you write a program (in a programming language, using a programming environment, as we mentioned a moment ago), it's not yet in a form that the computer can use.
Scripting languages can be excellent for beginners: they tend to be easier to learn, and they insulate you from some of the technical aspects of programming (compiling, for one).
Programming is seen as an exceptionally technical and boring profession, yet in all the years I've been doing it I've never tired of it.

 REALbasic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
REALbasic (RB) is an object-oriented dialect of the BASIC programming language developed and commercially marketed by REAL Software, Inc in Austin, Texas for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Linux.
RB is a strongly-typed language with minimal automatic type conversion, which supports single inheritance and interfaces, class methods and class properties, reference counting, and operator overloading.
REALbasic 2006 Release 3 and newer also supports a human-readable version control format which allows easy collaboration with tools such as Subversion or CVS.

 Scripting language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Those languages which are suited to scripting are typically called scripting languages.
Many languages for this purpose have common properties: they favor rapid development over efficiency of execution; they are normally implemented with interpreters rather than compilers; and they are strong at communicating with program components written in other languages.
An important type of application-specific scripting language is one used to provide custom functionality to dynamic web pages.

 Introduction To REALbasic
When you compare VB.NET to the Windows version of REALbasic (which was just released about a year ago), REALbasic's IDE is a little less functional and "rougher around the edges." However, it is still very similar, very functional, and is constantly being improved upon.
REALbasic shines brightest if you need a development package that is much like Visual Basic, but gives you the ability to compile your program (with no dependencies) for Windows, Mac, or Linux.
VB to RB converter" utility that is included with REALbasic helps, but realistically speaking, you're going to have to rewrite and tweak the vast majority of your VB code to port it over to RB.

 The Help Program: Description and Analysis
The Help Program lets the user use a similar "browser" to find the desired topic, but once a topic has been chosen, it uses the more favorable step-by-step approach, in which each step is given independently of the others, so that the user is not confronted with an overabundance of information.
Since users of the program are capable of submitting their own tutorials, it is likely that The Help Program’s tutorials will be of a much higher quality than the tutorials that are hastily written by uninterested programmers just before an application is set to ship.
Some programs are so simple, however, that it would be beneficial to have tutorials whose names are displayed in the left column of the tutorial browser.
