I had a book on GFA by a Dutch writer, I've lost it, does anyone know the name? GFA was so easy to write, later I struggled with VB.
Now there is the Hatari Emulator, it tickles me to try GFA again, for old time sake. ;)

I wrote Mailing Manager ST for the Atari ST/TT back in 1991 using GFA Basic. SOld that program until I sold the writes in 1996. I think it was like 16,000+ lines of code and I maxed out what you could have in a resource file (64k I think).

Those were fun times. I moved on to PC software development using VB 4/5/6 and then VB.Net.

For it's day, GFA Basic was cutting edge and very quick. Only a few things I ever did needed more speed, and I then wrote that stuff in Assembly.

Still some of my best memories were back in the day with GFA.
