IWB - IWBasic Source Code File

What is a IWB file

IWB files are source code files created using the IDE (integrated development environment) IWBasic. IWBasic was developed by IconicWind Software. It is used to develop Windows applications. More precisely, it is used to create 32-bit applications and DLL’s. The code inside IWB files is written in a programming language called iBasic. It was also developed by IconicWind and can be compared to another programming language, BASIC.

IWB files are written in iBasic. Yet, that does not hinder their speed as they are compiled for Windows. The programming language used in IWB files supports many different components, such as 2D and 3D graphics, network and database access. Ibasic and thus IWB files are quite versatile as the support not only a procedural, but also an object-oriented (OOP) approach to programming.

Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open IWB documents:

  • IconicWind IWBasic (Windows)
Extension IWB
MIME type application/x-iwb
