Projects / SmallBASIC


SmallBASIC is a free interpreter for BASIC, a simple computer language, targeting simplicity, mathematics, and graphics. Also, it has a powerfull string library, supports external C modules (shared libs), uses dynamic arrays (by default) and has no data types. Versions exists for Linux (or other Unix), PalmOS, DOS, Win32, VTOS (Helio), and Franklins (eBookman). It uses a lot of drivers, including svgalib, ncurses, and framebuffer.

    Release Notes: This release contains three bugfixes for PalmOS, one of which is very crucial if there are records larger than 32KB used in MemoDB (used by some third party memo applications). Two new commands for VFS have been added: BGETC and BPUTC.

    •  31 Mar 2002 07:24

      Release Notes: This release includes a LIKE operator (regexp), and other new commands DIRWALK, CHOP(), and EXEC (like RUN but never returns). There are now command-line help-pages (with search), and numerous fixes, including ones for CAT(), ENV(), and ENVIRON, the MEMO driver (which crashed on PalmOS), the PDOC driver, and a memory leak.

          •  22 May 2001 07:44

            Release Notes: Now you can add routines/functions, nested or not. LOCAL keyword added (dynamic local variables). Routines/Functions can pass ('by reference' or 'by value') or return arrays. DECLARE keyword added (declaration needed for multiple-sections - actually, every section acts as module now). Added Scientific-numeric notation (both in compiler and RTL), and logfile support (LOGPRINT added for users).
