BBC BASIC for Windows

For die-hard BBC BASIC lovers, there’s a version for Windows which can be used to create fully-blown Windows applications, producing small standalone EXEs.

There are also implementations available for MS DOS, Mac and other platforms. (Though really, to do anything good, sounds like it’d be a hard slog. Personally I’ll probably stick to VB, despite the runtime libraries required.)

    As the author of BBC BASIC for Windows I cannot let your comment “to do anything good,
    sounds like it’d be a hard slog” go unchallenged! Of course I don’t really know what
    you mean by “good” in this context, but creating fully-fledged Windows programs in
    BBC BASIC is not difficult. Feel free to come up with a ‘VB versus BBC BASIC’ challenge!

    Thanks Richard. Perhaps my comment was unjustified, given I haven’t tried it for myself… if I get time I’ll take a look, then re-visit this.
