I work for a company that manufactures traffic calming products. Our software development for the sign has been in Microsoft Visual Basic which is then compiled for the windows environment.

I need to locate a compiler that will hopefully compile it for use on the MAC and also possibly the IPHONE. Many of our customers are looking for a MAC version of the code. It is a simple program that uses bluetooth to communicate to the bluetooth modem in the sign, sending and receiving data and settings.

Thank any of you that can help me with this project. Rich Garrett rgarrett@radarsign.com 678-925-3555 www.radarsign.com

    Have you looked into [RealBasic|http://www.realsoftware.com/realbasic/vbdevelopers.php]?

    xnav is right. RealBASIC is a good one to check out. I have a small amount of experience with it, as well as Visual Basic and Liberty BASIC. So, I don't really care for BASIC or any of its variants, but I think that if you to program BASIC on the Mac then RealBASIC is a good way to go. It's similar to Visual Basic, and provides a simple way to build basic (and maybe not-so-basic) apps on the Mac. I'm not sure if it supports iPhone development or not, but it's definitely worth looking into if you need to program BASIC on Mac, and it's the only BASIC-based development environment on the Mac that I know of (there could be more that I don't know of though).
