Compiler Option: -forcelang


Provides QuickBASIC or backward compatibility

Syntax:
-forcelang dialect

Parameters:
dialect
The dialect to use in compilation, one of fb (default), fblite, qb or deprecated.

Description:
The -forcelang compiler option changes the way source code is interpreted, and is meant as a tool to users wanting traditional QuickBASIC-like behavior, or behavior deprecated from previous versions of FreeBASIC. It overrides any KeyPgPplang #lang statements within the code.
The intrinsic macro KeyPgDdfblang __FB_LANG__ is set to the string name of the dialect specified on the command line, or "fb" by default.
To learn more about the differences between each of these language dialects, see CompilerDialects Compiler Dialects.
fb

This is the default dialect, and allows compilation of source code adhering to the most recent version of the FreeBASIC language.
fblite

This dialect provides support for FreeBASIC syntax and functionality, but with a more traditional QuickBASIC programming style.
qb

This dialect provides the best support for older QuickBASIC code.
deprecated

This dialect is for backward compatibility with some previous versions of FreeBASIC, however, this dialect may not exist in future versions. Programmers should consider using the "fblite" dialect instead.
