Capitalisation of GFA[edit]

Is the correct capitalisation GFA or GfA?

This page's title currently (14:31, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)) uses GFA. In literature relating to the Atari ST, I've often seen the capitalisation GfA, but I did a Google and I found that mostly GFA is used. Even the GFA Software Technologies website uses GFA. Was the lower-case 'f' changed to upper-case when it was ported to the Amiga, MS-DOS or Windows?

The German GfA Basic page on the German Wikipedia uses GfA.

Anyway, I have created a redirect page called GfA Basic that redirects to GFA Basic. If it is decided that GfA Basic is the correct capitalisation, then the pages GfA Basic and GFA Basic should be swapped.


Gfa Basic Was ported to Windows 3.1 In 1994. A small contractor consisting of 4 programmers completed the nearly finished port. A few months later Windows 95 was released and doomed the market for both the Atari ST computer and eventually, the Windows 3.1 16 bit operating system.

The last version, for Windows 2000 NT4, is GFA Basic 32 version 2.3 and was completed in July 2001.

"Screenshot of a GFA BASIC program" serves no purpose. Will delete. Palpalpalpal (talk) 07:04, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Well, as the creator of the images I think it does serve a purpose, namely to show what capabilities of eg creating a GUI program GFA-BASIC offered, and what the sourcecode looked like. Don't you agree? -- Syzygy (talk) 10:34, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
