Years ago someone bugged me to put the rules of cartomancy on the computer.  So here it is a way to predict the future.  This program is for amusement only and makes no claim for any kind of accuracy. If it does it is quite a coincidence. Great for fun at parties.

$ sudo apt-get install libfreebasic libxext-dev libncurses5-dev libx11-dev libxpm-dev libxrandr-dev
$ wget http://iweb.dl.sourceforge.net/project/fbc/Binaries%20-%20Linux/FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.run
$ chmod +x FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.run
$ sudo ./FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.run install
$ nano helloworld.bas

[code]
print "Hello world! "
[/code]

$ fbc -lang qb helloworld.bas
$ ./helloworld
Hello World!
This program could be easily translated into another programming language with appropriate graphics added

Read carefully. You used P E R S O N A I L Y in the program. Duh! Thatsnotaword.
Duh, your right. Maybe I did that to see where the code goes.
When you are prompted to save the file, you can always rename it there. Upsets me too.
WARNING. THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON ATTEMPTS TO TRANSFER A .....BOT.TMP PROGRAM. <br><br>DO NOT USE!!!!!!!!
That is a shortcoming of Instructibles.com of which I have no control.
