With today's exciting announcement about TinyBasic for the PI, we finally have a nice little version of BASIC for the Pi.

... but we don't have anywhere to discuss BASIC programming at the moment?

(And by the way, I haven't forgotten that long-ago promise to bring BBC BASIC to the Pi as well...)

...And as if by magic, it appears that the recently released RiscOS for the Pi may have BBC basic (V5) built in.

In fact, both V & VI.

As far as I can tell, BASIC64 is BBC VI.
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

(One of the best lines I've seen on this board lately)

Thanks for that - was there ever a 'to-executable' compiler for any of the BBC Basic versions, or did they remain resolutely interpreted-only?
