PureBasic - A Beginner's Guide To Computer Programming

Gary Willoughby has written what I consider to be the best absolute best book ever written on PureBasic. "PureBasic: A Beginner's Guide To Computer Programming" is a complete reference to PureBasic v4 and will help you get from noob to pro in not time. Although no longer in print it's now available online for free!

Quote: "After much consideration I've decided to release my book under a creative commons license.

Many people have been emailing me asking me to do either an update to the text or release what i have, so I'm releasing it. I consider this project to be a complete success, as i have distributed a lot more copies than i ever thought i would and I have never heard anything bad said about it. I have also made a lot of money from it too.

I have taken a lot from the PureBasic community, so I feel the need to give something back. So here it is, my book."
