That's just Tomaaz winding Aurel up. It's kinda traditional around these parts.

I have grown so use to it, I forget how it might effect others. But Johnno, you've been member here since 2013.

Moderator! Ha, last moderator that got between Aurel and Tomaaz ended up in funny farm.  ;D

Johnno, I'm always happy to help (remember when I messaged you on NaaLaa forum?). And I agree with Aurel (yes, it's possible!  ;D) - if you want to learn something just ask or start a topic about it - nobody will bite you. This forum is a specific one, because we all know each other from basicpogramming and other places and we can say more to each other than people on other (more anonymous) forums can. I've been called "troll", "hater", "spammer", "copy/paste programmer", but I still like this community (including Aurel). When I was a kid there was a TV show about science and technology and the main idea was two guys arguing about a specific subject. And that was the best educational program ever! If this forum will ever become something like Stack Overflow (ask very specific question, get very specific answer, close the topic), I will quit.

Happy New Year!

I've been away for quite a while...but I find BBC BASIC still under active development (and being used for winning SyntaxBomb game coding competitions! ;D)

Latest version is BBC SDL v.029a.

Includes the following developments since last reported here:

  • IDE Improvements (including Dark Mode for SDLIDE)
  • 64-bit Linux edition fully functional
  • MacOS edition now 64-bits
  • 64-bit x86 assembler
  • Updated libraries
...and more...

Get it in the usual place

Tried to run it on Porteus 32 bit. Segmentation fault.

Hmmm...Can't help with that, I'm afraid. Perhaps something to do with the Linux version being x86 CPU only?

 ??? Isn't BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 a 32 bit app? So, you have a 32 bit program that can run only on 64 bit systems? What the hell?

Ah, I see that there are both 32 and 64 bit versions of the Linux edition...

Oh, so you're not the developer. OK. No problem.  ;)

Actually, there is only one Linux version - 32 bit. To run it on 64 bit systems you just need to install additional things that let you run 32 bit programs in a 64 bit environment.
