Thinbasic

thinBasic is a general-purpose scripting language built on top of the Windows API. It's designed for creating small utilities and automating repetitive tasks. Despite being small, thinBasic has an extensive list of features, including support for COM objects, DLL calls, OLE automation, and graphic operations through GDI+. The language uses dynamic typing to simplify code, allowing developers to write scripts without declaring variables. Additionally, thinBasic works with various data structures like arrays and user-defined types (UDTs), making it suitable for quick prototyping as well as efficient algorithm testing.
