Chipmonkey BASIC 0.1
« on: 21. March 2013, 14:56:04 »
Hi guys in the attachment you'll find the very first release of the Chipmonkey BASIC interpeter for Win32 (Linux and Haiku will follow soon). As you might guess (because of the name) it is based on Chipmunk BASIC 1.0 by David Gillespie. A documentation is part of the ZIP file as well as my newly introduced functions/statements are explained at the end of the doc.
It's a classical BASIC which uses line numbers and all programs are console mode only. It will only be available in 32 bit since the original source uses Assembler which isn't portable to 64 bit. Anyway it works fine on 64 bit operating systems for now.

Sorry, no, because it uses 32 bit INTEL assembler ... I have no clue about ASM, I wasn't even able to port it to 64 bit ASM (even with help from others).

I've read on bp.org forum that you're planning to add file handling functions. I guess it's not gonna be any graphics, but maybe I'm wrong? I really love this old-school BASICs, even if they are pretty useless nowadays. :)

Yes, I love them, too. But graphics functions are not planned at the moment.
