I would like to thank all people involved in developing such a great product as PurBasic and PureGDK.

Only one thing I dont like.

When accessing a member of a structure I'm used to use '.' (dot, very pascal, modula, oberon, java, C#, ADA, Eiffel style) instead of '\' That sometimes really make me crazy.

Indeed, thanks from me also, PureBasic and PureGDK are both great products.

About using the '/' to access a stucture member, no it is not exactly like the other languages you mention, but it is a different language.
It also does not use '{}' to close loops, etc, etc. I don't think it will be changed, it would break the entire communities projects.

That said, if it bothers you enough to justify the effort, you could possibly write a precompiler to change code written the way you like to PureBasic standards. There is even a member who has written an object oriented precompiler, which adds support for things like classes and methods in purebasic, using standard OO keywords.

If it really bothers you, Creating Game, you'll be glad to hear that the PureGDK will soon support languages other than just PureBasic such as C++. Then you'll be able to use the dot operator to your hearts content.
