Greetings Emergence Linux users.

The Emergence BASIC Linux version has been updated, download from here:

Instructions here:,1689.0.html

I figured it was time to give it a version number, which will allow us to differentiate between updates.  The version number can be found in the about box of ebtinyide

Whats new
- list box, combo box, static, scrollbar, and radio button controls working now.
- support functions addstring, getstring, getstringcount, deletestring, insertstring, isselected, etc now working.
- ebtinyide no longer leaves zombie processes.
- It is no longer necessary to declare gtk_init and the argc/argv variables. It is done automatically based on the compile target in ebtinyide
 which of course allows you to attempt a straight compile without changes from the Windows version.
- @IDCHAR returns more reasonable values in @CODE, common keys match their windows equivelents
- Messagebox now shows a title
- Many bug fixes including the one Krypt found
- many more example programs added
- Plus whatever else I fixed along the way.

I think GWS will get a kick out of the attached image,  only required one change to make it run in Linux.

That's great!
Linux is being totally conquered step by step!
