ZBasic was a compiler first released by Simutek (Tucson, AZ) in 1980. The combined efforts of Andrew Gariepy, Scott Terry, David Overton, Greg Branche, and Halbert Laing lead to versions for MS-DOS, Apple II, Macintosh, CP/M and TRS-80 computers. ZBasic was a very fast, efficient and quite advanced BASIC compiler with an integrated development environment. It aimed to be used as a cross-platform development system, where the same source code could be compiled to different platforms without any modifications.

Zedcor went on to publish FutureBASIC 1, from some or all of the same development team, including Andrew Gariepy and Chris "Staz" Stasny. The ''Getting Started" manual says "FutureBASIC will run old ZBASIC programs with little or no change." (p.13). FutureBASIC II through FB4 were developed and published by Staz Software, until Hurricane Katrina caused serious damage to their location in Diamondhead, Mississippi. Volunteers create a translator to convert the sourcecode of programs writting in FutureBASIC to C. Staz Software announced 2008-01-01 the freeware release of FB4.

Added ZBasic 5.01 application. No other apps bundled with it. If I find the original disks I'll upload.
