With Delite there is finally a real GEM shell available for GFA-BASIC developers. A menu bar, which offers the most important file and setting functions, is available as well as an own desktop with icons for GFA sources, RSC files, finished compilates, text files. Even the obligatory trash can has its place. Of course, all installed accessories (as you would expect from a GEM program) can be used without any restrictions: Every GFA-BASIC project can be placed as an icon on the desktop and loaded into the interpreter with a double kick. For each GFA source an individual setting of parameters, compiler/linker options and environment variables can be defined and automatically saved. This ensures that you will always find the Delite desktop with all your projects as you left it. The compile and link process can be started by pressing a key. Finished compilations appear automatically as icons on the desktop and can be started directly. With an appropriate resource construction set, the popular GEM resources can also be loaded and edited directly with a double click. Switching between the GEM interpreter and RCS is thus reduced to just a few mouse clicks, without tedious searching for the appropriate files. Also ASCII text can be loaded comfortably by double-click into an external text editor, or be transferred to a "View" program (e.g. GUCK). If you program smaller and larger projects (especially GEM programs) in GFA-BASIC, Delite is the ideal development environment.
