Basic interpreter under Linux, Version 3

Edit Package gambas3

Gambas is a free development environment based on a Basic interpreter
with object extensions, like Visual Basic(tm) (but it is NOT a clone!).
With Gambas, you can quickly design your program GUI, access MySQL or
PostgreSQL databases, control KDE applications with DCOP, translate
your program into many languages, create network applications easily,
build RPMs of your apps automatically, and so on... You have to install
the necessary components

Gambas is still in development, but already useful for smaller projects.
The IDE itself is written in Gambas-BASIC. The source can be used reviewed
as an example application in the /usr/share/gambas/examples directory.
Documentation is also in that directory.

I suggest the "gambas3-gb-jit" be a required dependency across all builds due to errors from systems using backports of this build.

I explain the solution in the openSUSE Forum:

To anyone using Gambas3 and experiencing the famous "gbx3: unable to find startup file" and any of the "gbr3: unable to load component" or the "Cannot load component" or "cannot find component", here's what works for me:

Look for the name of the component that is missing. In my case, when I run "gambas3.gambas", it shows the following:

jasongo@localhost:~> gambas3
gbx3: unable to find startup file
jasongo@localhost:~> gambas3.gambas
ERROR: #27: Cannot load component 'gb.jit': cannot find component

** OOPS! INTERNAL ERROR. Program aborting, sorry! :-(
** Unable to find JIT._Abort() method
** ERROR: Unable to find method _Abort in class Jit. Symbol not found
** Please send a bug report to the gambas bugtracker [1] or to the gambas mailing-list [2].
** [1]
** [2]

So what I did next is to install "gambas3-gb-jit"

sudo zypper install gambas3-gb-jit

Now it loads the Gambas3 IDE perfectly. I'm using openSUSE Leap 15.4 with the Education repo.
