Visual Basic (VB) is a programming environment from
Microsoft in which a programmer uses a graphical user interface
to choose and modify preselected sections of code written
in the BASIC programming language.
Since Visual Basic is easy to learn and fast to write code
with, it's sometimes used to prototype an application that
will later be written in a more difficult but efficient
language. Visual Basic is also widely used to write working
programs. Microsoft says that there are at least 3 million
developers using Visual Basic.
Visual Basic works great for small to medium size projects
where large amounts of data and processing speed are not
a concern. However, because it is easy to learn and use
many programmers may inappropriately use this language in
large projects where a great deal of data and processing
is required. In these cases the applications is usually
not as reliable and definitely not as fast as C or C++.
