Visual Basic to Python

Paul Paterson has announced the first release of vb2py.

vb2py is a toolkit to aid in the conversion of Visual Basic projects to Python (using PythonCard). The conversion will eventually include both forms and code (modules and classes). Version 0.1 is mainly a form layout converter to PythonCard with a very simplistic code translation. The project roadmap shows the project's development timeline.

Converting VB to Python turns your VB projects into cross platform developments and allows full access to all Python's extensive library of modules.

Note that I will be releasing PythonCard 0.7.1 later this week. This fixes a number of critical problems with the current release.
