Re: ScriptBasic

I'm thinking of digging into my box of home automation sensors and get the GPIO focus with ScriptBasic going again. Have you tried the WiringPi extension module?

Re: Comparing Interpreted Language Speed.

If performance is the goal, why are you even suggesting the task be done with an interpreter?

Since most applications people write are idle most of the time, a C extension typically is more than enough to cover any unique CPU demands.

Re: Introduction to BBC BASIC

I wonder if interpretive tokenized code is worth the effort these days? I believe it is still a good way to make code smaller, and make the interpreter faster. Those are always good things no matter how fast a computer or how much memory you have. I also think it has the potential to make an interp...

Too bad the SciptBaisc Brandy extension module got a bad rap. It could have provided the console environment BBC BASIC lacks.

BBC BASIC seems more like Paul Dunning's SpecBasic. He seems more hung up on BASIC needs line numbers.

Re: Project Digital Apocalypse Not Now

BASIC has a hell of a wardrobe.

Maybe the question should be why is there so many variations of BASIC?

My guess is since BASIC's mission is to minimize the number of steps for any given task, the tasks changed and so did BASIC.

All Purpose is not as BASIC as it seems.

There is no other language on the planet with more variations than BASIC. (over 100 and still counting)

Re: Introduction to BBC BASIC

In an early version of the ScriptBasic SDL_gfx extension module development I added a library to emulate console support.

You would probably hear less complaining about being stuck in your IDE if you gave your users a console like environment to work in.

Re: Project Digital Apocalypse Not Now

I'm happy you created your own ScriptBasiic program to illustrate your point. I'm sure it won't be long before you're once again a BASIC pro.

On a positive note you have restored faith that ScriptBasic as a language is production stable.

Re: Project Digital Apocalypse Not Now

As it looks to me it seems to be an issue with passing strings within an extension module.

If I stay within the scriba environment it behaves.
