Salam,
Dear i think that it is not possible for now to execute the code of VB in Linux bcz there is not a single compiler of interpreter is avaliable to compile and run the code of Vb in Linux.

The one alternative is to Use TCL/TK instead of VB in Linux.

Hello Mani

Actually VB is only for Windows. U cannot VB compile VB code in Linux. Because VB is dependent on a lot of APIs like the ActiveX controls. Even if you use an other way ( using Wine) it will not be stable and the application will execute tooooooooooo slow

VB is not like C.

another is python. you'll probably find more code out (and, thus, more jobs) there using python than tcl.

I have used RealBasic and I like it because the same code can be compiled for windows, linux and mac. But not all its features are free. Havnt tried gambas but looks pretty good so i'll check it out soon.

Is TCL/TK interpretted or compiled? is it easy to learn?

compiled to bytecode, then interpreted. it's very easy to learn.
