Gambas is an object-oriented dialect of the BASIC programming language as well as the integrated development environment that accompanies it.
There are currently two versions of Gambas packaged by Arch: Gambas 3 and the older Gambas 2.
Gambas 3 is the latest version of the language, and is distinct from earlier versions of Gambas although most projects can be converted and ran on the latest version.
Note: Gambas consists of a run-time and IDE broken up into several distinct components. Not all of them may be needed for what you wish to do with the IDE or for running a specific Gambas application.
To install the latest version of Gambas 3, install the gambas3 package from the official repositories. Development versions can be grabbed by installing the gambas3-svnAUR package from the AUR.
To install the latest version of Gambas 2, install the python2 package from the official repositories.
Gambas 2 will happily run alongside Gambas 3.
