A BASIC Compiler and IDE for Amiga Computers


AQB: A BASIC Compiler and IDE for Amiga Computers



Command Reference

AQB Programming Language


Project Scope

An experiment in alternate history: what AmigaBASIC could have looked like, had it been developed further tailored to the Amiga OS.

What AQB is not: AQB does not try to be a clone of any particular BASIC dialect - neither QuickBASIC, FreeBASIC or VisualBASIC nor any particular Amiga specific BASIC implementation like AmigaBASIC, ACE, HiSoft, GFA, Blitz or AMOS. While it strives to be as compatible as possible with the Microsoft BASIC family of languages (and certainly has many QuickBASIC traits) the primary focus is on the creation of a modern, clean, Amiga OS-compliant, future-proof BASIC that is tailored towards modern Amiga application development.

To be more specific, FreeBASIC is the source of many core AQB language constructs (in many respects AQB can be considered a subset of FreeBASIC) with inspiration for Amiga specific commands mainly from AmigaBASIC, ACE and HiSoft. Main target is Amiga OS compliant application development.

Improvements over AmigaBASIC include:

  • Advanced type system (including UDTs and Pointers, see below)
  • Support for non-static functions and subs (enables recursion)
  • Module support (similar to UNITs in TurboPascal, with full type safety and dependencies)
  • Modern syntax inspired by FreeBASIC and VisualBASIC
  • True native 68k compiler
  • Integrated IDE besides compiler command line interface with
    • syntax highlighting
    • auto-indent
    • folding support
    • source level debugging


  • 3 MB RAM
  • OS 2.0 (V36) or newer


Download a release LHA archive (https://github.com/gooofy/aqb/releases) and unpack it wherever you like, keep the directory structure intact.

AQB should run from this point on without the need for further installation, but for convenience add a "AQB:" assign to your S:user-startup file, e.g.

;BEGIN AQB Assign AQB: "sys:Apps/AQB" ;END AQB

Type System

Basic types:

  • Byte, UByte (8 bits)
  • Integer, UInteger (16 bits)
  • Long, ULong (32 bits)
  • Single (32 Bit FFP floats)

Advanced types

  • Static (C-like, fast) and dynamic (runtime bounds checking) arrays
  • UDTs (structs)
  • OOP (FreeBASIC like)
  • Pointers (C-like, including function/sub pointers)
  • Strings (0-terminated pointers to UByte, C-compatible)

Module System and Runtime

AQB tries to keep the set of commands that are built into the compiler to a minimum and relies on its quite powerful module system to provide most of the commands as part of the runtime system. This means that while the default runtime strives to implement a modern QuickBASIC like dialect tailored to the Amiga, it is quite possible to implement alternative runtime modules that could provide AQB with a different "personality", e.g. one that is closer to AmigaBASIC or GFA BASIC or even languages like BlitzBasic or AMOS.

The goal for AQB's default runtime is to provide a rich set of commands covering typical Amiga OS programming topics like GUI programming, multitasking, graphics and audio combined with resource tracking and error/exception handling. Future plans might also include an automated garbage collector to make memory allocation easier and safer.

AQB is fully link-compatible with the Amiga 68k GCC compiler which means that AQB modules can be implemented in C as well as BASIC (one could even mix these languages within one module, i.e. implement some subprograms in C while others in BASIC).

Intuition / Exec event handling

Since the default runtime wants to enable OS friendly programming no busy waiting is used. Therefore the SLEEP command is used to process pending events, i.e. you will need to call SLEEP regularly in your program, typically form a main loop that could look like this:

WHILE running

For event processing you register subroutines using the ON ... CALL family of statements, e.g.

ON WINDOW CALL myWindowHandler

see https://github.com/gooofy/aqb/blob/master/examples/demo/gfx1.bas for a simple example of this approach.

Interesting detail: since AQB supports C-like function pointers, the ON ... CALL family of statements is not built into the compiler but part of the _aqb runtime:


Code Generation and Target Systems

At the time of this writing classic 68k Amiga systems is the only compiler target. The idea is to focus on one target and try to make AQB work really well on this platform before expanding to other systems. The AQB compiler is implemented from scratch in C based on Appel's 1997 book "Modern Compiler Implementation in C" and tries to keep system requirements (RAM and CPU) low while still producing somewhat sensible machine code. Originally the AQB code was based on ComMouses's tiger compiler implementation (https://github.com/ComMouse/tiger-compiler) which provided a very useful starting point.

For future expansions to other platforms the current plan is to use an LLVM based backend for all platforms powerful enough to run LLVM which is probably true for most NG Amiga systems (AROS, AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS) and most likely also for highly expanded classic Amiga systems (using accelerator cards such as PiStom or Vampire).

As for the 68k compiler future plans include further reduction of its memory footprint ideally to a point where it is useful on 1MB or even 512K Amiga systems. At that point it might even make sense to implement a 6502 backend targeting modern 8 bit systems like the MEGA65, Commander X16 or C256 Foenix.

Interrupting / break handling in AQB programs

By default, the runtime will check for break signals in i/o routines. Break signals can be sent either by pressing CTRL-C or by using the AmigaDOS BREAK command.

Additionally, the compiler will insert checks for break signals in all loop statements (to protect against endless loops) and in subprogram startup code (to protect against infinite recursion). This is enabled by default but since this will make code longer and cost some performance, it can be switched off using the



Amiga OS System Programming in AQB

AQB datatypes are very similar to C (C-like strings, structs and pointers) which makes usage of Amiga OS libraries and devices pretty seamless.

Data structures generally can be modeled 1:1 from their C counterparts, a python script semi-automating the task of converting Amiga C library and device headers to AQB is in the works. Here is a preview of what the resulting AQB declarations typically look like:


TYPE ViewPort
    AS ViewPort PTR NextViewPort
    AS ColorMap PTR ColorMap
    AS CopList PTR DspIns, SprIns, ClrIns
    AS UCopList PTR UCopIns
    AS INTEGER DWidth, DHeight, DxOffset, DyOffset
    AS UBYTE SpritePriorities, ExtendedModes
    AS RasInfo PTR RasInfo

TYPE Layer_Info
    AS Layer PTR top_layer, check_lp

    AS INTEGER PrivateReserve3
    AS VOID PTR PrivateReserve4
    AS BYTE fatten_count, LockLayersCount

  • Build fails with linker errors

    Build fails with linker errors

    When I build aqb it fails linking the Linux binary aqb. The math library is added to the beginning of the command line, so the linker does not resolve symbols for pow and other math functions. When I add -lm to the end of the command line it works.

    Possibly this is related to the linker used with gcc on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS? I have seen the very same issue in a completely different context before (using the Qbs build system to compile some C programs).

  • READ / DATA reading wrong text

    READ / DATA reading wrong text

    I am writing a program that uses READ/DATA statements to populate several arrays with code table information, and I keep getting weird results.

    I finally wrote a simple test program and came up with a fairly consistent behavior: instead of correctly reading DATA statements, there first element in each DATA statement is replaced by the last statement of the program (usually WEND, in this case.)

    Here is an example:

    FOR I=1 TO 2
        READ A$
        PRINT A$

    Output is: WEND WORLD

    After playing with it more, it seems like the first item on a DATA line will be replaced with the last program statement. So programs with multiple lines of DATA statements will return WEND for the first data item per line, followed by the correct items on that line.

    DATA a,b,c,d DATA e,f,g,h

    Would return something like WEND b c d WEND f g h

    I'm currently using AQB on WinUAE with OS 3.1.4, a 68030 CPU selected, 8MB RAM, 1.5MB Slow RAM, 256MB Z3 Fast 256MB Chip RAM. I am also using the UAE Zorro III RTG module.

    I'll try different CPU and memory combinations to see if there's any difference.

    Compiler crash with "string" + int_var

    I discovered a way to crash the compiler with the following message:

    assertion "0" failed: file "frontend.c", line 726, function: coercion Program aborted

    Attempting to concatenate an integer type to a string will do this every time. For example: DIM n AS INTEGER PRINT "HELLO " + n

    If I use the type correct "HELLO " + STR$(n), the program seems to work as expected.

    The expected result would be either a compiler error (since you can't concatenate strings and numeric types) or an automatic widening conversion (ie: an implicit STR$(n)).

  • Specific CPU support?

    Specific CPU support?

    My concern

    Certain 68k CPUs do not have features other 68k CPUs have; for example, the 68030 does not have floating-point. While this was typically provided through a 68881 or 68882 add-in floating-point chip, this is not guaranteed.

    Thoughts on fixing

    Some indicator of how this may be handled, such as:

    • Only supporting CPUs such as the 68030 if they come with a floating-point unit.
    • Noting that software floating-point support may be required on some CPUs.
    • A setting or option that returns a compiler error on floating-point, thus allowing a program to be compiled without it.

  • Specific list of supported systems?

    Specific list of supported systems?

    My concern

    The readme states that "classic 68k Amiga systems" are targeted by the compiler; however, this may still leave room for confusion. For example, while I can guess that the Amiga 500 is very likely supported, I am much less sure about, for example, the CD32, and less sure about the A4000.

    Suggestion to fix

    A markdown table listing each system, whether it is supported, and the degree of support, such as a percentile; red/yellow/green; bronze/silver/gold/full; and/or a notes and caveats column.

    How I think this will help

    • It will assist users with an overview of the current support state of a system, and how well AQB can be expected to run on that system.
    • It will assist contributors by providing an idea of where to focus their efforts.
      • A contributor who has improved an area of support, can then raise an issue or PR to have the support state of that system changed; which can notify both users and contributors of an improvement in the level of support.

I also had to poke him as to why there was no mention of AQB in the video. 🤔 So if you are so inclined, would love to see you over on this discord server sharing tidbits, updates, thoughts, etc. regarding AQB.

A Compiler Writing Journey

In this Github repository, I'm documenting my journey to write a self-compiling compiler for a subset of the C language. I'm also writing out the details so that, if you want to follow along, there will be an explanation of what I did, why, and with some references back to the theory of compilers.

The C++ Core Guidelines are a set of tried-and-true guidelines, rules, and best practices about coding in C++

The C++ Core Guidelines are a collaborative effort led by Bjarne Stroustrup, much like the C++ language itself. They are the result of many person-years of discussion and design across a number of organizations. Their design encourages general applicability and broad adoption but they can be freely copied and modified to meet your organization's needs.
