QBasic, even using the "call everything" is much faster than GWBasic (interpreted BASIC).

LeandroCorreia: Plain C-language is actually not that far away from assembler. It is much more computer orientated. BASIC is based to talked english, it was ment to be easy language for secretarys etc. to learn at the time, when each computer user made their own programs.

I understand, that this kind of compiler would be really cool and usefull, but I hope you understand, that making PC-emulator for MSX is almost as easy task. Nice idea, but...

GWBASIC also has a compiler that makes the program 20 times faster or something like that... i have both is some CD

to learn assembler.... there is a lot of cheap books... online i not know nothing that shows the basic syntax of z80...

but you can starts by the z80 official doc PDF, just jumps all the tech that and watch the examples....

there is a lot of websites with assembler codes , and how to do this / that....

MAP website www.map.tni.nl

also the www.mnbios.com.ar ( my website ) has a lot of examples , but not shows the basic rules of assembler syntax... but has a lot of little example that you can see.... from that website you can to download sources codes, libraries, for to programming on MNBIOS.

OK... Forgetting BASIC...

Is there a decent (i.e.: relatively fast) MSX C compiler with full documentation that allows me to create a binary program (that I could convert to a ROM format later using other utilities) using graphics, sound, timer and millisecs functions?

MSX & assembler information is quite a much spread around the internet, but here is at least one place to start:
map.tni.nl/

And on www.hansotten.com you can find a lot of documentation @ sources on coding for MSX in Pascal and C. If you're not to afraid to use Pascal, I suggest you have a look into MDL-Lib.

I am not afraid of Pascal. It's just plain boring... For me, the best languages are equally C, for the possibility of messing a little bit to gain much more speed, and BASIC, due to the excellent easyness of use.

I actually learned quite a lot of assembler by looking at X-BASIC compiled programs with SUPER-X. At start I used this method when ever I didn't know how to do same thing on assembler... (SUPER-X is good as you can follow the jumps and also get back where you left)

What the hell are X-BASIC, BASIC-KUN and SUPER-X? BASIC compilers? Can they compile stand alone programs as BIN files?
