Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
For all you Windows users out there that don't like to develop externals in
C++. I submit this solution.
Many years ago, when I was cutting code in VB, I came across a compiler
designed to create externals (DLLs) in Basic.
The boys at PowerBasic had taken the original basic IDE and massaged it into
a DLL maker.
I latched onto it and have used it for years, with no problems.
So if you have a background in Basic (and who doesn't) here is a better
option that C++.
