Hey Pete,
As a BASIC language fan spanning more than just a few years, I've
licensed and used most of them that you can find available these days.
I licensed RealBasic a few weeks before RunRev some 5 years ago now...
and there are plenty of similarities between the two products that can
easily be compared. Here's a comparison by Geoff Canyon that is a bit
old, but still useful I think:

with RunRev, I can only offer this:

Feature for feature, there isn't a "BASIC-like" language on the planet
(including RealBasic) that can hold a candle to RunRev, IMO.

- Absolutely none! -

YMMV ;-)

Best regards,
