Is there a QUICKBASIC interpreter for Mac? My intro Computer Science course has a few labs where we need to program in QUICKBASIC and I would rather do my work here at home on my Mac than go to the clusters and work with Windoze over there.

There is a Microsoft BASIC compiler for Mac, but the compiler is very very old and only run on System 6 or older versions of Mac OS.

If you are not writting some QuickBASIC-only code, you can try Chipmunk BASIC interpreter for Mac.

Also, you can use Virtual PC and just install DOS to run the PC version of QuickBASIC interpreter.

Thanks, I think this Chipmonk program will work quite nicely.
