Yes. Program files are just text files with a .bas extension. fbc is just a compiler, not an editor like you get with QB. You can use any text editor, even notepad, but you might find it easier to use an IDE, such as FBIDE or at least a code-colouring editor of some sort, such as Crimson, which I use (although I keep meaning to adapt the bas format to FB and never quite get round to it).
