Awesome :)
I'm thinking it'll be perfect for my app.
the main reason my compiler/installer had to be a shell script and not a
gambas app was because Gambas may not be installed or working when running
it.  A gambas app that can run regardless of any previous gambas
installation would be great.

My aim here is to make upgrading gambas to latest version so simple even
those non programmer people from windows can install/upgrade it ;)

Great work Fab.
