need the gambas2-runtime package to execute them.

Im not trying to be a problem but, just for an example...

If I create hello.bas with
print "Hello World"

then how would I run it? When I type
gambas hello.bas
I get an error of
gbx: cannot connect to X server

I can type
yabasic hello.bas
bwbasic hello.bas
blassic hello.bas

and iirc if I add something like
I can make it self executable

Can I write and execute gambol basic without a gui? Even if I can it seems like alot of loading just to do that. Gambol looks like a great alternative to Visual Basic but Im not seeing it as an alternative to Basic. I think there is a place for both in the catalog IMHO.
Sorry, Im old.
