Re: ScriptBasic

How soon will Script Basic be able to serve web pages under RISC OS running on an A1 instance? If RISC OS doesn't support pthread then the sbhttpd appllication server is off the table.

Re: ScriptBasic

David,

If you wish to run ScriptBasic in a single threaded model and use malloc rather than Peter's myalloc here is the info you need.

Re: ScriptBasic

Good answers!

What does the existing library of Brandy Basic programs look like on RISC OS?

Do you think you can make use of the extension module API on RISC OS?

Re: ScriptBasic

Are there any other BASIC languages running on RISC OS other than Brandy?

Was RISC OS the alternative to Windows at one time?

Who is mostly likely to be excited about ScriptBasic running on RISC OS? Is this more of a personal challenge then anything else?

Re: ScriptBasic

If you get ScriptBasic running on RISC OS it will confirm Peter's decision to go ANSI C with his object magic was the right choice.
