C++ Links | COBOL Links | Qbasic Links | General/Other Links

C++ Links
This site is an amazing resource for looking up any information on the the standard C/C++ library. They also have a tutorials section, articles and a forum. My number one go-to C++ reference.


IBM Data Conversion Services (has COBOL docs)
Unforuntely the company that created these articles are no longer in business after being open over 20 years. That said, they were nice enough to leave their website up which contains a decent amount of well written technical articles that I've found useful. There's a whole section discussing COBOL layouts and fields that is worth checking out.

Jay Moseley's Page
This is a site I stumbled across looking for COBOL info. It has a few sections related to COBOL as well as one section for GNU COBOL specifically. There's also a section for emulation of the IBM System/360-390.

GNU COBOL Programming Resources
This page was created by Gary Van Winkle. It's a new page (created Aug 2021) that contains some useful links related to GNU COBOL as well as some really in-depth tutorial programs. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for some COBOL programming examples.

QBasic Links

Acid Works Basic Software | link Acid Works Button
Update: Unfortunately this page has seemed to have disappeared in the recent years. I've attempted to reach out to the original owner with no luck. I'll leave the link here for now but I don't see it coming back. There should be a decent version on though.

Acid Works is a very old Qbasic site starting from 1997. The final update to the site was done in 2006 stating that it would not be updated again. As it sits right now, it's a good archive of the old site. There's good Qbasic information and programs here for those that are interested. Absolutely worth checking out if you're looking for Qbasic stuff and somehow have never stumbled upon this site before.

Graham's World Wide Web Server
A cool oldschool personal site I stumbled across from Pete's QB forum. Has some personal programming projects that are pretty neat including a QB game that runs on any DOS computer that can at least display CGA graphics called "Thy Dungeonman".

Lucid Apogee Lucid Apogee Button
While this is not technically a 'Qbasic' website, it is very much BASIC language related. Lucid Apogee have a number of different BASIC programming languages that they've written that are available to download, including one called 'Net Basic' that can be run directly in the browser (Neat!). Another thing I like is that each version of BASIC is compatible all the way back to Windows 95. After working on my own BASIC interpreter written COBOL I can really appreciate the time and energy that must have went into creating these. Definitely give the site a visit if you're interesting in trying something new in the world of BASIC.

Mike Hawk's QB Page QB Mike Hawk Website Button
One of the few QB sites that's still kicking and active in 2020 and beyond. Has a bunch of his own programs as well as reviews, articles, specs and more information. Definitely worth checking out. This guy has some serious QB programming chops.

Peat Soft
A page with a good amount of GW-Basic Qbasic and Visual Basic documentation. There are also some of the owner's own programs as well. Some interesting ones include converters to and from Visual Basic to Python as well as GW-BASIC to Visual Basic. This also appears to be the home page of the desktop.ini file documentation.

Pete's Qbasic Site Pete's Qbasic Site Button
This is a very well known Qbasic site... and for some reason he randomly added my link to his website. I'm a huge fan of the site so I figured I would return the favor. Anything you EVER need on Qbasic can be found at this amazing web site. Check it out.

Phat Code Phat Code Button
A still active programming site with QB, Assembly and vintage computer related things. It also hosts an array of other interesting sites. Definitely worth checking out.

Phat Code : QB Games Database
One of the cool hosted things over at Phat code. It's a sub site full of a ton of Qbasic games that are now becoming hard to find. Definitely worth a look if you're looking for some Qbasic games to check out.

Qbasic/QuickBasic News Qbasic News Button
This site has some interesting news articles pertaining to Qbasic. It's updated pretty often. It also has some tutorials and a forum.

Qbasic Tips
I salvaged this page from the old Acid Works page. Has some QB tips that may be useful. If you want the full Acid Works site, try the link above.

QuickBasic Cafe QB Cafe
This site has been around for a long time now. It has some good "Getting started" information for beginners related to how to get Qbasic going on more modern computers. It also has the full reference for Qbasic 1.1 with examples. There are also a bunch of old QB downloads to be found, though I don't think they've been updated in a while.

Ray's Miscellany Qbasic Section Ray's Qb Section
This is a great page that has a bunch of well written and informative Qbasic related programming tutorials/articles. There are also some downloads of the owner's own programs. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for QB related help.

Top Gun Software Top Gun Software Button
A Qbasic great programmer. It doesn't look like his site is going to be updated again though. He still has a great archive of released games up. Still waiting for SC3D!

VPlanet - Qbasic Game Review Magazine VPlanet
Although this site is no longer updated, it hosts a large amount of Qbasic related game reviews and other interesting articles. It's definitely worth checking out if you're looking for some quality (or not) QB games to play that you may have missed in the past.

General/Other Links

Dominick Gendill's Page
This is Retna's latest page. It has a bunch of blog post articles about various things as well as some other things to check out!

Puckdropper's Place
This is a cool web site. It has some Qbasic but is more (IMO) a computer and misc page..

This is Joe's newest site. Way back in the day he used to run a QB page called "Joe Basic". This site is his tech blog.

Uncreative Labs
Uncreative labs is an awesome site if you need support for you IBM PC/XT. (for those of us that still have them) It also hosts an amazing web forum for tech support for any computer from the 486 and below.

Ken Silverman's Official Home Page
This is Ken Silverman's official homepage. The guy that built the build engine for Duke Nukem 3d and many other games. I feel like having a link here needed not only because he has an awesome full blown QBasic Page full of programs but as a site called "Nukem Enterprises", how can I not link the person responsible for creating the game engine the site's name came from?
